So, because shooting a laser is easier in every single way, it requires a separate, developed skill?
That's like saying someone who can cook elaborate meals totally can't make a sandwich because it's so different.

Lasers require a separate skill because they are better, not because they behave differently.  It's a game balance issue, so logic is not really relevant.

They should've made one seperate Skill:
Other Weapons (with a specialisation in Laser,Flamethrower,Gyro Jets,Plasmarifle,whatever)

with a seperate Dance

How is that different than Exotic Ranged Weapon (Specific)?
Nevermind, I see where... But as a house rule, you could allow them a generic Exotic Ranged Weapon skill. But I think the reason they force you to take the specialization is that the Exotics differ so much from weapon to weapon.

You could make it an additional specialization for all firearm skills.

So you could have Pistols (Energy).

You could use a Victorinox Memory Blade (Arsenal pg.16), and just "wrap" the sheath around the outside of the gun-cane. Giving it that "old-time" steampunk look of leather on metal that would go oh so well with your "Vashon Island Steampunk" line armored suit (Arsenal pg.46).

Then the only issue would be making the 2 handled cane look not-awkward, which should be pretty easy since it's steampunk themed, and 2 handles wouldn't really be all that out of place to begin with. =)

I've used a cane extensively in a theatre roll. Two handles would be a pain in the rear to actually use like a cane. And fancy heads are equally hard to use. Used a cane with a bust of Shakesphere as the head of it, man my hand hurt by the end of the day.
