You are skilled with heavy weapons.

Heavy Weapon is the base of a skill tree focused on heavy weapons. This refers to the missile weapons classified as "heavy weapon", not weapons that are heavy in terms of weight, although heavy weapons often have a high weight value. Though they are two-handed ranged weapons, heavy weapons do not benefit from Bow and Rifle skills.

The player and other creatures suffer a -25 penalty to movement speed while wielding a heavy weapon, unless they have the Tank skill. This penalty can stack if wielding more than one heavy weapon, such as is possible with a gun rack or giant hands.
