Crushing Blows
Crushing Blows
3 Increases damage from Strong Attacks with Blunt Weapons by 30%. A Rank Icon
Large increased damage for Strong Attacks will increase your overall DPS. But the fact it requires Strong Attacks which are slow, makes it less effective.
Juggernaut

4 Increases Armor by 15% while blocking with a Blunt Weapon. S Rank Icon
If you are using a melee build you will be taking damage as you try and close the distance. This will increase your defense by a significant amount and let you tank more damage.

Useful to help stun enemies and activate other Perks that activate when attacking a stunned enemy.
Rush
Rush
6 Successful attacks with Blunt Weapons regenerate 3% Health over 2 sec. A Rank Icon
Healing while attacking is mandatory for melee builds as you will be taking a lot of damage trying to get in close to your enemies. This will help you survive much longer in fights when you are on the offense.
Efficient Blows
Efficient Blows
6 Reduces the Stamina cost of all attacks with Blunt Weapons by 25%. S Rank Icon
This allows you attack way more times before worrying about running out of stamina. Even without the stamina regen perks, you can still keep attacking without worrying about running out of stamina.

Greatly increases your damage at health lower than 50% when maxed. Can help you clutch dire situations with the damage increase.

10 Defeating an enemy by performing a Strong Attack with a Blunt Weapon restores 10% Stamina. B Rank Icon
There are better stamina perks that cost less points to be effective in Street Brawler. You also will need to slow down with a Strong Attack that costs more stamina in order to regen stamina.

Regens your stamina fairly quickly. Useful in any melee build and more so in the Beat on the Brat fights.

Increases your DPS if you start off with a Heavy Attack.

    • In the crafting screen, would love to see a comparison between what I'm currently equipped with vs what I've selected to craft. In the Inventory screen, I have no idea where any extra weight is without going into each category (weapons, clothes, etc). Please add some sort of weight indicator next to each category so I know exactly where I seem to be overloaded. In the Map, please mark completed items (assault in progress, access points), grey out the icons or something similar?

    • When I grapple NPCs I can see black patches flashing on the back of their head, shoulders, and back. Like they are rendering properly.
