** In terms of Las weaponry, there's the [[SniperPistol Archeotech Laspistol]], [[ArmCannon Las Gauntlets]], Belasco Dueling Pistols[[note]]One shot, overcharged and ornate las pistols, which should one aim properly, can tend to make any rival Rogue Trader regret insulting your ship/family name/hat[[/note]], [[ArmorPiercingAttack Hellpistols]], and if the needs call for it, loading any standard las pistol with a Hot-Shot Charge pack for a single powerful shot.
** Solid Projectiles category, we have the aptly named HandCannon[[note]]ammo capacity and reload speed is a bit annoying, and the recoil kicks like a mule, but it does significant damage and accepts a wide variety of special damage enhancing rounds[[/note]], the Naval Pistol (its default ammo is basically fragmenting hollow point rounds, confering the "Tearing" quality to the gun), and the Shotgun Pistol, which holds and fires a single regular size shotgun shell. The other sidearms, Autopistols, Snub Automatics and Snub Revolvers can also move into this territory with the right ammo types.

* ReassignedToAntarctica: Inquisitors, particularly those from the Ordo Xenos, have been known to be offered a Warrant of Trade from their superiors in exchange for their Inquisitorial trappings and authority, either due to political reasons or as a means of punishment for failure. As the choice is typically "Accept this warrant and then go to whatever edge of the galaxy we point you to, ''or else''...", few reject the offer. They still often end up gaining glory, sincer their dealings tend to gather useful intelligence and examples of technology in far-flung sectors away from where the Inquisition regularly operate.

* PsychoForHire: A perfectly valid career option, as the game's supplements allow the game to pick some alternate career options that turn the characters into this, but ''The Soul Reaver'' introduces a full career path that makes all of these look heroic by comparison, namely the Dark Eldar Kabalite Warrior.

Added DiffLines:

* PunchPackingPistol: Rogue Traders and their officers tend to have quite the variety of options....
** In terms of Las weaponry, there's the [[SniperPistol Archeotech Laspistol]], [[ArmCannon Las Gauntlets]], Belasco Dueling Pistols[[note]]One shot, overcharged and ornate las pistols, which should one aim properly, can tend to make any rival Rogue Trader regret insulting your ship/family name/hat[[/note]], [[ArmorPiercingAttack Hellpistols]], and if the needs call for it, loading any standard las pistol with a Hot-Shot Charge pack for a single powerful shot.

The other sidearms, Autopistols, Snub Automatics and Snub Revolvers can also move into this territory with the right ammo types.
** There is of course, the ever useful Bolt Pistol, which as stated many times before on other Warhammer 40,000 pages, is less a pistol and more of a semi-auto mini-rocket launcher.
** Then there's the Inferno Pistol, a pistol sized [[RayGun Melta Gun]]. Aside from the fairly minor loss in range and fuel cell capacity, it has all of the same same tank-buster potential as the full sized variety.
** If you don't mind the risk of burning your hands with one, Plasma Pistols are probably the best means of dealing with any thing short of a tank. And they can probably deal with them too if aimed at sufficiently weak points on the armor.
** Hand Flamers, just in case your Missionary should ever suffer the inconvenience of having used up his or her entire backpack supply of fuel for their other flamer weaponry.

Added DiffLines:

* TheMedic: The Missionary is the only career that starts off with the Medicae skill by default. The Explorator can also learn the skill, and it will be useful when performing surgery to apply bionic augmentations. Everyone else though will have to either purchase it as an Elite Advance, or carry an Advanced Medikit to provide first aid.
