Starfield Armor Penetration skill overview

The Starfield Armor Penetration skill is a tier 4 skill in the Combat skill tree. It, as with all Starfield skills, has 4 ranks, beginning at rank 1 and ending at rank 4. In order to progress up the Armor Penetration skill tree, you will need to complete various skill challenges related to the skill in question, and increase your Starfield level to earn skill points. Each rank requires a skill point to unlock.

The Armor Penetration skill allows your attacks to ignore a certain percentage of enemy armour. As you rank up this skill your attacks will be able to ignore more enemy armor. The final rank will decrease enemy armor after a critical hit.

This skill will aid you in dealing with toughly armored enemies and will definitely prove useful in the late stages of the game.
