Main article: Exotic weapon

Exotic weapons usually require special training to wield proficiently. For example, bards and monks are proficient with a few exotic weapons.[1]

This is the top-level category for all weapons that are classified as exotic. Individual pages of weapons that require (e.g., Nunchaku) or may require (e.g., Bastard sword when used one-handed) special training that causes them to be considered exotic should be placed in this category. Subcategories should be limited to types of weapons that are always considered exotic, like Katanas.
