Perks are a type of gameplay mechanic associated with the level up system in Battle Brothers. 1 Perk point is gained with each level up. they will be able to acquire powerful perks, independently of their Attributes.

To unlock, for example, the second perk row, you need to spend one perk, to unlock the third row you need to spend two perk points. These two, however, can be used in the first perk row and you will still gain access to the third row.
