What is the cost to obtain a Phaser Type-2 for non-Security and non-senior Personnel?

Fundamentally there isn't one. If they didn't specifically grab one beforehand then they would only have a type 1 as it is their standard issue.

If you want players to have one through Opportunity/Escalation, Opportunity 1 seems reasonable (maybe Escalation 1 as well)

Opportunity 1 is sufficient - it's not a big step above a Phaser I, really, and as it's still a sidearm, it doesn't signal escalation like a rifle does (an item with an escalation cost visibly suggests a greater willingness to use force; a rifle or combat armour show "ready for violence" much more than a holstered hand phaser).

Yeah I discussed this with a friend after and basically came to the same conclusion. Plus if the GM says you have to pay escalation anyway, get a rifle.
