I started playing with other people after soloing and I am not sure how the shared perks work. Do I need to unequip perks so use shared perks if the ones being shared are higher value? Is there anything else I need to know about this system?
Shared Perks are exactly as the title suggests. Points to note, they do not stack if you have the same perk as being shared, you need to remove your perk and equip the one being shared. They don’t stack on top of what you currently have.
The advantage of perk sharing is you can equip perks you don’t currently have and use ones that are of higher level than you currently own.
