Knives and shotguns figure into damage calculations for certain abilities, therefore weapons, therefore none for comms. Simple logic really.

In this game, I can stab someone without a blade equipped at all.

Nice try folk. Then explain why shields, and specially focuses and generators are still in game and are available for BH comms. Apart from the difference in graphics and animations (VK and SG have "weapon" animations while the other 3 don't), their effects (in terms of DPS and Heals) are roughly the same.

Think again...
May the fork be with you

Check the Trooper Campaign/BH vendor. Are Commando offhands available? I think it's most likely available. If so, Bioware needs to do one of two things:

1) At the least, remove the Trooper and Bounty Hunter DPS generators from being bought through BH comms
2) Give MK-1 offhands to all classes, yet have the mods locked

Otherwise, Commandos have an unfair advantage gearing up with Black Hole commendations. I believe the Mercenary, the Commando's mirror, doesn't have their MK-1 offhand available for purchase. This would balance the two classes.

I believe that the developers of Bioware were actually deliberate on leaving out the Vibroknives, though. This is due to the fact that Gunslingers use a second pistol as an offhand and all modable offhands are unavailable through Black Hole comms. The Scatterguns and Vibroknives were left out in order to bring balance to Smugglers and Agents.

For Sentinnels and Marauders, they never noticed the issue since both classes use the same type of offhand.
