I ran into a problem regarding the legacy bound weapon you get for your companion upon arriving at Rishi. I picked the pistol for Elara Dorne. I noticed it says it can also be given to both ship droid variants as well as blizz. I amused that he could finally be given a weapon, but when I try to equip the weapon to him the game states he doesn't have the skill required to equip it. Just like he always has.

C2-N2 needs to ability to equip said pistol. Was this a bug/error adding the droids to the list of compatible companions or was it an error not giving them the ability to equip a pistol?

I can only assume that the tooltip was a mistake. To my knowledge ship droids have never had a weapon proficiency and they even point this out to you in their initial conversation saying that they "aren't programmed for combat". Have to admit I was scratching my head when I read that tooltip.

Got a reply from Customer Service and it has been confirmed as a bug. Was told that I should report it through the game as a bug so that it will be fixed in a future patch.

The ship droids could use pistols back in beta pre-launch. What they found was everyone using the ship droids as healers and not using the other companions so they took away the ability to equip a weapon to make them sub par healers people would only use for the novelty value

Similar issue with the blaster rifle being equippable to Kaliyo and T7, they were nerfed in beta so that if they equip a rifle they lose the ability to have an offhand. But currently the devoted allies weapons state the rifles are for kaliyo and T7, but the (aim) pistols are not

What it looks like to me is whoever set these weapons up used a spread sheet from early beta and does not actually play the game to know any better

Hey folks,

As of 3.1, your ship droids will have completed a Basic Marksmanship course and will be able to equip weapons that they are listed on.

What about Ensign Temple not having a 192 Legacy Companion offhand she can use?
