Default How do I link a Power to a Weapon?

I've created an Advantage Power that requires the use of a melee weapon, and I'd like to link the damages. Is there presently a way to do this?

The easiest way I can think of is build the weapon as an innate attack or set of linked attacks with a gadget limitation.

How would one add say a sword and its ST damage to a 10D burning attack. Or is this a case of it being better penciled in on the character sheet.

Adding the attack to the Force Sword is easy, just raise it another 8D.

Can your character do it with any sword or just with this one. If he/she can do it with any sword you need to load the file for Power Ups 1 Imbuements and use those rules. If it's a specific sword then design it as a gadget based advantage with cutting damage and a burning attack follow up with an impaling attack alternative ability with the same follow up.

Thanks, Power Ups seems like what I need. He can use the power with any weapon he picks up.
