Keep using your assault rifles, sniper rifles, and submachine guns in Cyberpunk 2077 and you’ll see the Assault perk rank up.
Here are some important picks:
|Perk/Skill Node||Effect||Reflexes Level|
|Bullet Jock||+3% damage with rifles and SMGs (3 ranks)||1|
|Covering Killshot||+10% crit chance with rifles and SMGs when firing from behind cover (2 ranks)||5|
|Bullseye||+10% damage with rifles and SMGs while aiming||7|
|Duck Hunter||+10% damage to moving enemies (2 ranks)||9|

Assault awards an extra perk point at levels 3, 6, 9, 10, 12, 15, and 18. The remaining level-ups confer boosts to crit damage, crit chance, and recoil reduction.
Assault ultimate perk (level 20): Punisher – After defeating an enemy with a rifle or SMG, weapon spread and sway are nullified for 10 seconds; +0.2 seconds per perk level.
