The Heavy Standard Frame has two Upgrade Circuit slots for the upper and lower tools available by default, and two additional slots per tool can be unlocked for 20 Tungsten each. 

All tools can be fitted on a Heavy Standard Frame. Some tools differ in options from the Compact Standard Frame - for example, a compact Plasma Core results in only Plasma Cutters, while a heavy core results in Force Guns, Contact Beams, and more. Like their compact versions, Heavy Frames can be equipped with various modules to modify a tool further, such as the Explosive Module.
