Jettison-Capable "Weapon" Compatibility
« on: 30 August 2023, 09:28:14 »
What precisely qualifies as a weapon for the purposes of the Jettison-Capable Weapon quirk found on page 227 of the third printing of Campaign Operations?

There's been a previous ruling that shields are compatible: https://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php/topic,42092.msg1027692.html#msg1027692. Is this because they are capable of being used to damage something? If so, does this extend to industrial equipment? What about hand actuators, which may be used to punch (and more importantly, carry cargo). Salvage Arms?

My idea here is effectively reproducing the Modular Manipulator Adaptation with an IndustrialMech, taking advantage of the ability to swap jettisoned "weapons" designed for different variants.
