One-handed action refers to actions that can be performed on the move while reloading, charging or firing weapons simultaneously; allowing the Tenno to perform a wide range of actions without being constrained with animation locks. For example, a Nova can sprint and cast Antimatter Drop while reloading a weapon at the same time, while a Vauban can deploy Bastille while charging a bow simultaneously.
Two-handed action refers to actions that lock the Tenno in an animation lock, disabling mobility and other one-handed actions. This means that even though Mag's Pull is a one handed action, it cannot be cast while rolling, as the latter is a two-handed action. Likewise while performing melee combos, an Oberon cannot cast Smite, as melee counts as a two-handed action.
