Remember the trope where a character is asked by the guards to turn over all their weapons, so they sigh and start pulling out all these hidden knives and/or guns from random pockets and sheaths, etc, and there's a LOT!

I think it would be funny to film this for Jyn, and it would work with quite a few more fringe characters.

What are all the canon small weapons a fringe character could believably acquire? (i.e. no lightsabers)
What's a believably ridiculous inventory to have? (i.e. 3 thermal detonators are funny. 83 are not funny)
I'll keep this list updated with all the suggestions people post.


- The character's primary weapon(s)
- Blaster pistol sidearm in holster (if it's not already the character's primary weapon)
- 1-3 spare blaster pistols (Like the one that Jyn "finds" in Cassian's bag)
- 3-6 small hidden blasters (What are the model numbers for some REALLY tiny blasters????)
- 2-4 knives (like Rey's when she frees BB8)
- 1-3 thermal detonator(s)
- Collapsible tonfa baton (like Jyn's on Jedha)

The Star Wars character already known for this is Kyle Katarn. In the first-person shooter games that he is a main character (Dark Forces, Jedi Knight, Jedi Outcast, & Jedi Academy) you can collect and carry over 10 different weapons and tools.

A Sampling from Dark Forces (when he was just a fringe mercenary)

Modified Bryar Pistol
Stormtrooper Rifle
Thermal Detonator
Imperial Repeater Rifle
Jeron Fusion Cutter
I.M. Mines
Packered Mortar Gun
Stouker Concussion Rifle
Assault Cannon

Energy Cells
Power Cells
Battery Cells
Mortars
Rockets

Personal Communicator
Personal Shield Generator
Datapad
Field Light
Infrared Goggles
Ice Cleats
Gas mask

Colored Keys
Security Cards


It's amazing that he could jump, let alone run carrying all that gear!


A Topps trading card attempted to capture him fighting with his load:

It makes Baze Malbus with his power core backpack seem like a lightweight!

This kind of things in the example you give of kyle katarn is usually more a gameplay thing than a canon or lore thing Wink
