Weapon Group Feats

Most of this comes straight from the Unearthed Arcana section on weapon group feats, but I’ve added weapons from more books and a few of my own groups. For more details on the rules, refer to the main Weapon Groups page.

Exotic Weapon Feats

There are three Exotic Weapon Group Feats, which replace the Exotic Weapon Proficiency feat from the PBH. They add to all the other weapon group feats you have, as shown in the lists below.

  • Exotic Weapon Proficiency (Prerequisite: BAB +1)
  • Double Weapon Proficiency (Prerequisite: BAB +1)
  • Heavy Weapon Proficiency (Prerequisite: BAB +1, STR 13)
    • Races with the Powerful Build feature, such as Goliaths and Half-Giants, can use heavy weapons sized for them without exotic proficiency. They only require Heavy Weapon Proficiency to use oversize heavy weapons.
