Weapons are divided into 10 categories, called weapon groups. Each group requires a certain amount of training to use accurately; your training in a weapon group is called Proficiency. Like skills, having proficiency in a weapon group grants you a training bonus when wielding a weapon in that group. In addition to the 11 weapon categories, there are two unarmed proficiencies, which represent training in bare-handed attacks.
