“You handle animals really well when they are dead and gain a damage bonus against the living ones.”— In-game description
This perk applies a small (3/6/10%) damage bonus against mutated animals.
- This perk has three ranks; each rank provides an additional bonus and requires 50/100/150 animals to be killed to earn it.
- Kills made by a companion do not count towards kills needed to earn this perk.
Perk progress freezes at 20/50 animals.[verified]
- Appears to be fixed as of patch 184.108.40.206x.
- When the 3rd rank of this perk is achieved, the pop-up message may give a ridiculous number (such as 3940517670000000000...) as the perk rank instead of 3.[verified]
