Limited fighters to one combat perk per 20 points in combat, military, and/or police skills, and one extra perk per 10 points spent on the skills and techniques of a combative character template, fighting style, or similar abilities package that offers combat perks. Combat-effective perks from other categories – notably Shticks (PU 2: 14-15), Skill Perks (PU2: 15-17), and Unusual Background Perks (PU 2: 20-21) – count as combat perks for this purpose.

Exotic perks are subject to the restrictions on exotic advantages (p. B32). Typically, they have one of these explanations:
- Cybernetics, genetic engineering, magical transformation, etc. What’s possible depends on the alterations available in your game world.

- Superhuman powers; see Power Perks (p. 11).
