Actually the Skwaaaark/Chipjack/Skillsoft issue and
Yellowjacket/Fixed-Fire Cannons issue are completely differant:
Skwaaaark can never use any equipment other then Cyberware. The reason
for this is because all gear cards given to skwaaaark are free. If you
could play non-cyberware cards on him, then you would just use him to
get all of your gear for free... Since you never can play a Skillsoft
on Skwaaaark, he can thus never use them.
Now the Yellowjacket says that you cannot use any other gear while using
the Yellowjacket. You can play whatever gear you want on a RUnner with
the Yellowjacket, you just can't take advantage of its bonus' and other
gear at the same time. The Fixed-Fire Cannons are played on the Yellowjacket
itself so you really are only using the Yellowjacket even if it uses
Fixed-Fire cannons. You see the Cannons add to the Yellowjacket bonus
just like any of the Ammo cards.
Personally, I don't care if I can play Fixed Fire Cannons on the
Yellowjacket and still use them. I simply would never want to put the
cannons in any of my decks. Paying 6Y for the honor of adding +d6/+0 for
an additional 2Y later on is just not worth it....
I don't think I'ld even use it on Harley Scorpion, which would be much
