  • This perk is very useful for a tank character, due to the extreme damage sponging, as it can aid in clearing enemies that prefer long-range combat.
  • At rank 1, the chance is 1% for automatics and 5% for non-automatics. At rank 2, this becomes 2% for automatics and 7% for non-automatics.
  • It can also ricochet fire from friendly targets like settlers so caution is advised when fighting within settlements and be careful not to get into their line of fire.
