Has anyone else noticed that it lists "Headhunters with bionic arms and hands" in this category and the lowest PS on the chart is 24 yet the maximum PS you can get with a bionic arm/hand as a Headhunter (or partial reconstruction borg) is a PS 20 (possibly 22).

What gives? Makes no sense whatsoever!

Augmented PS in that unlisted range function as "normal" PS in terms of damage.

EDIT:
It's also important to remember that Bionic/Augmented Strength does not just apply to Bionics, but also Crazies/Juicers (who don't have a limit to their PS), light power armor, not to mention certain creatures (for ex, some D-Bees are classified as having Bionic/Augmented PS, even though they don't have bionic limbs: ex: Bear Men of the North (RCB1r pg75), or Dragonmen (RCB1r pg83), Vernulians (WB30pg211), Vintex (WB30pg214), Bluicies (WB30 pg36), Aviane (WB30 pg32), and this is by no means a complete list).

Yeah. The Bionic P.S. restrictions make no sense, especially with this chart, so in my games I tend to ignore them.

Greetings and Salutations. I just figured that the first listing is meant to read: "24 or less." Basically the same as every other damage rating. Having a damage listing for only one specific attribute amount would also be weird and out of place. That's just my opinion. Farewell and safe journeys for now.
