Repair Torch

Repair Torch

The Repair Torch is one of the most useful perks in the game. Other than repairing vehicles and unlocking safes, The Repair Torch can also be used as a weapon if needed. It's also cheap at only 3 Perk Points to unlock.

Well-Armed

Well-Armed

With another weapon slot, you'll be able to create a proper loadout depending on your ammo and the ranges you want to fight in. This will negate the need to constantly search for another weapon during combat.

More Light Ammo

More Light Ammo

Having more ammo is always a good thing. At the start of the game, you'll most likely run across light weapons rather than heavy ones so it's better to have more ammo for the more accessible weapons around.

More Medkits

More Medkits

With More Medkits, you'll be able to increase the amount of Medkits you have with you. This is especially helpful when in combat since although you have regeneration, it doesn't fill your health fully and it takes a while.

Covert

Covert

Covert will help you to sneak around Outposts and during missions more successfully. With the additional movement speed while crouching, you'll be able to switch positions quicker if you get noticed.

Grapple

Grapple

Grapple will allow you to access certain areas with good loot. It's better to get this perk and go to those areas early rather than having to backtrack later to get them.
