It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
Dual Weapon Attack is a ranger power without level. Therefore it can only be granted by class features. Take Throw & Stab instead.
Or, be a human scout, and use the human at-will to poach real ranger powers, like Throw & Stab.
To answer your question title: special indicates that it's not a normal at-will, and can therefore not be selected like normal at-wills. However, the best indication of that is the absence of a level, rather than the label "special."
