Unique combat power ONLY matters if it's good.

A unique piece of fecal matter is not anything anyone cares about.

When it turns out to be the handicap it is going to be ... all you're going to see is complaint threads. About how weak it is.

Because people want a big gun. And they're going to get a red matter device. My plasma shooting tactical console is utterly unique. It's also not anything I bother equipping after Lt levels because it's not powerful, and causes more trouble than it's worth.
