Assault - Tier Three talent in Roland's Infantry tree. Each point increases magazine size and reduces recoil with combat rifles.


Increases Magazine Size and reduces Recoil with Combat Rifles.

+(9...45)% Magazine Size and Recoil Reduction

Level 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Magazine Size and Recoil Reduction 9 18 27 36 45 54 63 72 81

Ranks beyond 5 may be acquired through the use of class mods.

While not necessarily a bad skill to have, Assault suffers from competition: It increases the ammo capacity of combat rifles, but less so than Overload, which does it for all weapons. Furthermore, the recoil reduction tends to pale in comparison to the potential +150% from proficiencies, and the potential +195% from a Rifleman class mod. Finally, for a skill dedicated to combat rifles, Assault doesn't even increase their damage.

If a player is able to find a good combat rifle early game, then Assault can be an extremely interesting skill to have. However, by late game putting points into it will feel like they are wasted.


  • This ability stacks with Overload to increase magazine size.
  • Because the magazine size increase is percentage based, combat rifles with smaller ammo capacity are still more greatly affected as a rule. Increased ammo capacity increases fire time/overall time.
