Exotic Melee Weapons use the Close Combat skill or the Exotic Weapon skill to attack?
(I think they should use the Close Combat skill with the requirement of a specific Exotic Melee Weapon specialization)

Exotic Weapons use the Exotic Weapons skill.

A monowhip would use Agility plus Exotic Weapons (Monowhip).  Exotic weapons skill are an exception and require the specialization.

Without gaining the 2 dice bonus from the specialization.

The Weapons Specialist archetype (CRB 90) has Exotic Weapons 5 (Launchers +2).
So this is an error (no +2 dice)

Archetypes are made before final rules so often don't fully match.
How am I not part of the forum?? O_O I am both active and angry!
