Affected weapons

* Weapons must not have a shoulder supported stock installed to benefit from this perk; having a stock will make these weapons benefit from Rifleman instead. In addition, all of these weapons must not have an automatic mod installed regardless of the stock used.


  • All automatic pistols are affected by the Commando perk rather than by Gunslinger.
  • The crippling effect of the fifth rank affects all weapons.
