Default Extra Arms, but with Stubs

Let's say you're playing a dilapidated robot who's lost some parts and may not have all your hands. What's the cost of having spare limbs that don't actually hold things? Technically extra legs?

What is the limb good for? It could be an arm with modifiers, a leg, a striker or something else.

I'd buy it as a weapon mount linked to a striker with the limbed disadvantage (-20% IIRC) so that it's not an "invincible" limb as with a default striker.

So pretty much Extra Arm (Linked, +10%; Weapon Mount, -80%) 3pts + Striker (Crushing; Linked, +10%; Limb based, -20%) 4.5pts, 8pts total.

That costs more than a Striker alone would, on the presumption that you can wield weapons with it. I don't think most severed robot arms are Weapon Mounts.
