Low Tech Weapons

Even in the 41st Millennium there is a call for low-tech weapons, found on feral, undeveloped planets or postapocalyptic environments where technology has collapsed, or on vicious hive worlds that see combat take on all forms. Though these weapons may be hopelessly outdated by more advanced firearms, in the hands of a skilled user they can be just as deadly. To use the various classes of low-tech weapons a character must have the Weapon Training (Low-Tech) Talent.
