Handguns Notes and Trivia

  • Points are first placed into the core skill (e.g. Melee) of the specialized skill (e.g. 1-Handed Melee) which improves all of the specialized skills in that group up to Rank 50.
  • Once it reaches Rank 50, skill points can be directly added to the specialized skill to increase the effect up to Rank 100/ 150 (Only available whit Peril on Gorgon DLC).
  • Some armor, consumables and status effects can temporarily raise and lower the effects of your skills.

      A description and photo needs to be added to Ultimatum, from FORCE - a unique weapon. Also, description and photos for Ultimate Bolter (lvl 11) and Ultimate Bolter 2.0 (lvl 26). You get these from vendors in the Groundbreaker if you sell FORCE schematics to Gladys instead of giving them to Orson in Vulcan's Hammer.
