Skills and Perks: An Introduction

Crew Skills and Perks give Crews certain boosts to help increase your battlefield performance. Choosing a Skill or Perk can be difficult, so be sure to read up on what each one does and how it can benefit you. Your Crew can have a maximum of 25 Skills and Perks. 

Skills and Perks work slightly different, with Skills becoming active as soon as you start learning them. Skills also become more effective as you increase your training level. Perks, on the otherhand, will only become effective once they are fully trained to 100%.

Some Skills and Perks are better used on certain classes, nations, and even play styles, so be sure to take the time to decide which best suits your needs.
