Starfield Marksmanship skill overview

The Starfield Marksmanship skill is a tier 3 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 Marksmanship 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 Marksmanship skill increases the critical hit chance when using non-automatic weapons, with each increase in rank raising your critical hit chance further. Rank 4 empowers un-scoped non-automatic weapons to inflict double damage on a critical hit, and causes scoped non-automatic weapons to knock down enemies.

This skill is useful for anyone looking to increase their potential to deal damage using non-automatic weapons.
