Totally agree.. implent rifle or Carbine atleast for PT.. Looks abit goofy with just one small gun.. since guns are not big either... Rifles are in the BH lore and cant see why Bioware choosed to walk away from it.. Just to make a small ex about Boba fett the movie icon and BH etc etc Rifle not gun so i dont get it really hehe.. Naa time to unlock the Rifle carbine for BH powertechs... Mercs i understand the DPS with two guns etc etc looks nice but one gun.. naaa not really.. Great game that could be even better.. kind regards

Give Powertech a rifle and i'd roll one in an instant. There's only one thing that annoys me more then the BH ship and it's using one pistol :/

Give Rifles to the masses! (of powertechs)

Yeah why not. As long as I end up being able to use a rifle I'm happy.

I know you can search for shotguns on the GTM, but I haven't seen any. (don't know if they actually exist in-game).

But wouldn't that be awesome? SHOTGUNS FOR POWERTECHS!

I'd be all in for a blaster rifle for my bounty hunter - it would be awesome.

I see a couple of problems with it though, as some already has mentioned.
First one being the animations being a bit weird, mainly rocket punch though.

Secondly, they'd have to give the empire access to all the blaster rifles that the republic has, which would without a doubt, make people rage over the empire getting a "benefit".

Doubt they will do it any time soon (if at all), but one can always hope.

Shotguns are a scoundrel-only offhand. They rule, but you'd have to basically dismantle and restructure the entire play style for it to work.

Edit: I love the legacy level idea, or perhaps a chain of heroics or something. However BW would have to do that for all classes, cannons for mercs, sniper rifles for slingers, blaster rifles for scoundrels, 2 pistols for snipers, 2 pistols for commandos, vibroknives for scoundrels and shotguns for operatives.

Im sure there are ALOT of people wishing their powertechs could use rifles. I mean there's already alot of +aim based rifles in the game.

I wonder, can we get a dev response on this?
