|This -1/4 limitation indicates that the item is a real weapon. The limitation means three things.|
- The character must have the appropriate weapon familiarity skill to use the item.
- The weapon is readily identifiable for what it is (i.e., a gem focus that shoots laser beams is not readily identifiable for what it is but a Ares Predator II is easily recognized by anyone who knows Small Arms). Furthermore, such a person will also likely know the properties off the item such as approximate damage and the number of rounds that the gun can hold.
- Real weapons must be cleaned and maintained and failing to do so will result in problems with the weapon.
