As long as they also have non-standard weapon names, I have no issue with it. It's something they actually fixed/avoided in GotU (renaming Slate's weapon a "Custom plasma pistol" and naming Baertrum's an "Artisan needle pistol with auto loader", which are clearly unique, non-standard weapon names.)

A master-crafted hotshot laspistol is something you can make with items purchased from the trading post and, to make things worse, master-crafted weapons have an invisible special rule that is not represented by a Trait or Characteristics change. So I still don't know if Kal's weapons are supposed to get a re-roll on failed hits or not. Is "master-crafted" just a fancy title they used instead of 'custom' or 'artisan' to handwave that the weapons keep their Am 2+ (completely forgetting that it actually means something rule-wise), or does it have its usual meaning?

If it's not a mistake, then it's bad design, which imo is even worse.

Unique weapons MUST have unique names. GW insists on failing to do so.

What they insist on is that Necromunda is a fluffy ruleset. What they don't do is follow that up. Fluffy to them means "unfinished" as in "we wrote some stuff. It sorta works, it'll do."

Proper fluffy rules *would* include unique names for weapons as that seems to be a basic standard for non-standard weapons. Just think of any fantasy or SF story. All the unique weapons have a damn name!!!
