For the same skill seen in Fallout: New Vegas, see Guns.

Firearms (also known as Marksmanship during Van Buren's development) is a skill in Van Buren, meant to replace the classic Small Guns and Big Guns skills.

I'm now more in favor of marksmanship than having two firearm skills.

If Small Guns, Big Guns and Energy Weapons are combined into one, won't it make being a dedicated combat specialist too easy?

A dedicated combat specialist in Fallout 1 or 2 could put all his or her skill points into one or two combat skills, too (Small Guns/Energy Weapons, for instance). Of course, since (with the exception of the beginning of Fallout 2) ammo grew on trees and fell out of the sky, Unarmed and Melee were only useful as amusing alternatives. That's why I keep talking about having lower amounts of ammo and fewer firearm-using opponents.
