Now I will explain why this is a good option. See in 5th if you had any kind of Special Weapon (exluding TH, PF, CF, and LC) you could only get +1 Attack if you also had a pistol or CCW.
5th Edition Example:
Venom Blade + Huskblade = No +1 Attack
Venom Blade + Splinter Pistol (or CCW) = +1 Attack
In 6th edition they change that rule. As long as your weapon doesn't have the Specialist rule you can always get the +1 Attack if you have any kind of pistol or Melee Weapon.
Venom Blade + Huskblade = +1 Attack
Power Fist (Specialist) + Bolt Pistol = No +1 Attack
So this now gives the Archon options depending what he/she has to fight. You can now go against any kind of MC and still wound a 2+ or go against a T4 or less and use the Huskblade.
