Weapon Penalty

Mechanic in Red Algorithm

If your current hero level is lower than the weapon level you will be penalized. It means that you can't handle this weapon at this time. Weapon penalty significantly reduces a number of stats, such as damage, range, accuracy, reload speed, and expirience gain speed. You can still use those high-level weapons early, but be ready to face consequences. One way to use high-level weapons early without penalties is to get Handyman perk.
