Weapon skill specializations

Both Beam Weapons skills and Guns skills have a few new specializations (optionally applicable to Crossbow), due to alien body mechanics, and alien technology in general. For example, the ancient Irari developed crossbows which could be shot in flight (when they needed their wings to be wings), pointing in the direction of travel, and later developed firearms mounted the same way. Likewise, the Gormellians developed a number of heavy weapons that had chest-mounting as an option, and lighter, often concealed weapons worn on the head or wrist.

Back-mounted: Any weapon worn as a backpack; most often fires over the shoulder or behind the head, and may be pointing along the length of the body.

Chest-mounted: All weapons worn on the chest, generally designed so that the recoil, if any, is widely spread, and for Irari, passes through their strongest bones and muscles.

Headgear: Any weapon worn on the head, often built into a helmet.

Shoulder-mounted: All weapons worn on the shoulder (often similar to but lighter than Back-mounted or Chest-mounted weapons).

Wrist-mounted: Any weapon that is strapped to the wrist when carried and used, rather than held in the hand.

Warning, I have the Distractible and Imaginative quirks in real life.
