Perks are bonus effects that can be applied to your character in the gear screen. The effects of perks can be quite varied, from extra armor to being rewarded with bonus bucks for achieving head shots!
When you purchase perks in bulk, you'll undoubtedly get multiples of the same perk. When looking at your Perks Summary after buying in bulk, the Perks Received line refers to how many types of perks you received. So if you bought 3 perks, and got 3 copies of the same perk, the Perks Received would show 1 perk, as you earned one type of perk.
Additional perk slots can be earned by increasing your gear rating. Buying more gear will increase your gear rating.
How do I get perks?
Perks can be purchased with medals from the gear screen by tapping on any of the perk slots and then tapping on one of the purchase buttons that appears.
If you purchase a perk box and get a perk you already have, you will get progress towards leveling up that perk and making it more powerful. It is important to note that not every extra perk you collect will equal 1 level up.
Please note that during events, we also offer Special Perk boxes. These are purchased with gold and award you limited-time perks that count down once equipped and give you bonuses during the event. If you don't activate these during an event, they'll remain in your inventory until the next event.
How do I level up my Perks?
When you get purchase a perk box and receive a perk that you already own, you will get experience towards a level up for that perk. Leveling up a perk can improve the perks effect or its chance of activating in a mission.
2.9 Perk Ranks
With the release of Kill Shot Bravo version 2.9, we've made some exhilarating changes to our Perks!
Nearly every Perk has received an upgrade in the form of new, increased Perk Ranks. Every Perk, save for Recon and Sleight of Hand, can now gain an additional 10 Ranks higher. Perks that have achieved a high Rank will have a unique Rank banner displayed as well!
Some Perks now feature secondary effects once they reach a certain Rank level. This allows you to use extra powerful effects from the Perks you equip.
If you've been saving up your Medals, you can level up your Perks to higher Ranks by purchasing Perk Boxes! This also means you may earn Perks again from specific Crates if your Perks were previously at max Rank, as the max Rank cap has changed!
