Special: Unarmed attacking counts as a weapon when making a melee basic attack.

Target: one creature

Attack: Strength vs. AC

The melee basic attack is an at-will power available to all characters. It can be performed as part of a basic attack action or a number of other actions, such as charge, coup de grace, or opportunity attack.

Certain at-will powers count as melee basic attacks. They can be used any time a melee basic attack could be used, and are affected by modifiers to melee basic attacks.
