Been getting my SW fix from talking about space bird people for the Adventurers Journal, so I haven't been to the Pit in a while.

On the original question, the hyperspace jumps and gravity wells thing was really unexpected. I think both stories could have been told (Episode VII and VIII) without messing with the established "rules". Along with that is the "hyperspace jump ram attack". Good thing it was in a movie, because if it was a game it just became broken.


What of the mods Rogue one made, where someone can jump inside a planet's atmosphere/grav well.?

Bowcaster.

This must operate like a semi-automatic pistol. You've got to cock it one time when you load a new clip of ammo , but with each shot, the firing action blows the crossbow string back.

Each ammo magazine holds six rounds of ammunition--those you can see on Chewbacca's bandoleer.

What's confusing is that there are some pictures of the bowcaster that doesn't show a string.

You'd think the weapon would be silent, too. Yet, it sounds like a blaster being fired. Maybe that sound is the bolts arming when they are fired from the caster.

I have no problems seeing the bowcaster as a launcher, with the bolts doing the damage and most of the sound

Movies seems to have made more than the A180 a configurable blaster.

I am beginning to wonder if some manufacturers maybe do prodice a "main" line of blasters that in fact are configurable.

From what I know metal unpowered swords are also canon
