A successful use of Disarm Skill leaves the weapon/item at the feet of the disarmed opponent.
Degrees of success for the Disarm WS Test can result in propelling the weapon/item away from the disarmed character – or even taking the item away from them. The first one & two Degrees of Success knocks the item 1 or 2 meters away, respectively, from the disarmed in a random direction, per the Scatter table. 3+ Degrees of Success and you have taken the item from him.
This is being added because a likely possibility after any character is disarmed is they consider immediately picking it back up.
A character picking up an item at their feet is a Half Action. If that character is in engaged in melee, this non-Disengage action will give all current melee opponents a Free Attack.
