Horizon introduces numerous changes to Perks.

VANS[edit | edit source]

Leveling speed in Horizon is roughly halved compared to the vanilla game, but every 5 levels you may put one perk point into V.A.N.S., which refunds the point and gives another 5 perk points. This means that while leveling is slower than vanilla, the total number of perks remains about the same.

Players who elect to not use V.A.N.S. receive the Primal Instincts perk, which increases their damage by 5% for every 5 levels, up to a maximum of 30% at level 30. This is primarily intended as a higher difficulty mode for advanced players.

Weapon Perks[edit | edit source]

Weapon perks in Horizon generally do not increase damage. They instead provide bonuses that vary from perk to perk, such as increased reload speed, increased limb damage or greater range.

Many Specializations do increase the damage of their associated weapon group, and usually require the third rank of their respective weapon perks.

Skills[edit | edit source]

Many perks grant bonuses to Skills, either as their primary effect or as a bonus.
