Perks implemented in Update 14: Feature Creep as a major new feature. They offer small boosts to certain miscellaneous stats which are shared by all classes, in some cases like the "Berzerker" perk they offer small unique upgrades. Perks can only be unlocked via perk points and perk points can be earned through milestones.

Perks[edit | edit source]

To reach each tier a certain amount of perks is required, each arrow indicates one perk requirement from the tier before it. Purchasing the same perk but with better stats will permanently improve the perk on the upgrade screen and the weaker variant will be unusable.

Milestones[edit | edit source]

Each milestone rewards the player with perk points, some milestones can only be claimed once. All milestones that can be claimed more than once will have their requirement increase each time it is claimed. Perk point reward amounts remain constant. After completing the final requirement 'tier' of a milestone, it will no longer appear in the milestones window. Total progress will still be tracked, and can be found on the statistics window.

Milestone progress is not cumulative. After claiming a completed milestone, your progress starts from zero.
