This came up in a game I played today, if a character has Heavy Weapon, T1 Bulk Droid, can he use an ability that replaces attacks if he moved, like Heavy Lift?
I have a feeling that it being no, but I just wanted to make sure.

You can use Lift on the T1 and move. Heavy Weapon only applies to the T1's normal attacks, not its special abilities.

Q: Characters with Heavy Weapon can't attack and move in the same turn. How does this work with ASP-7's Lift ability? Lift "replaces attacks," so can ASP-7 move another character with Lift and also move that turn? Can it use Industrial Repair on another character and still move that turn?

A: Yes. Abilities that replace attacks don't count as attacks themselves. So ASP-7 can use its Lift ability and also move, or use Industrial Repair and move. Heavy Weapon only prevents it from attacking and moving on the same turn. A character with Heavy Weapon can still make an attack of opportunity as normal, and it can move in the same turn that it uses a replaces attacks ability.
