Weapons (old)

Lethality: All weapons without the Nonlethal trait are lethal weapons, and targets Taken Out by these attacks are killed (though may be allowed a dramatic soliloquy prior to expiration). You may make a nonlethal attack with a melee weapon; typically, this reduces damage and penetration to 0, and prevents the use of all traits.

Special Acquisition: You may spend a stunt to acquire a weapon without purchasing it through resources. See Starting Wargear
