i was just wondering im sitting at 550 ego give or take a few and ive heard the game only lets you access 5 perk slots right now is this true? and if that is true whats the real point of leveling that high? honestly ive que'd into a couple co-ops with guys that have well over 1000 ego and ive crushed them in damage numbers. so im really just wondering should i be grinding extra hard to get high ego or just relax and let it come natural?

just let it come naturally, I focus a lot more on trying out perks and weapons to make the perfect build. I don't really care about my ego

high ego doesn't really net you anything anyway, just more perks to equip and stuff. Not a super huge deal. I just like to have fun with it

I didn't know they stop it at 5 perks for now. That true? Cuz I am ego 1058 and have 5 perks. Then again I got the 5th one at ego 900 I think.

see i got my 5th perk at 502 exactly. now ive done very few pursuits but ive done almost all my side missions and i completed the main story line. as far as i know nobody has more then 5 perks unlocked even though there are 9 total slots. maybe they're waiting for a dlc to unlock them?

What are the conditions to unlock perks? I thought it depend on your ego level. Since you unlock your 5th at 502 that is way earlier than me at 900.

So im at 1700 ego and yes you do unlock more slots at higher ego. The reason your doing more damage is because all those high ego people are doing persuits and not using the weapons they are good with. Get at me in pvp and you will see whos ego matters.

ive been there too and honestly im not bragging but ive been eating people up. im sure youll see me there soon enough. how many perk slots do you have now and do you remember what ego level you were at when you got them?

There is a pursuit to get to lvl 4000 ego which mean the cap for ego must be very very high. If all the perk slots open too early, there might be less of a need to chase that crazy ego level.

I'm assuming the perk slots unlock more slowly the higher your ego gets.

Sweet thx. I knew I had to be close to the next slot. I'm a little over 800 now. Going to start working on some other weapons now. Might start hunting recorders.

not sure if this is off topic, but is anyone else having the problem of one of the slots unequiping themselves?

I think it's a known bug. It appeared to happen to me with Cellular Armor but it was still equiped on the perk grid. It seems like the icon just disappears sometimes. I've yet to see it happen again since I moved CA to any other slot. That's just my experience with the bug. Hope it's of some help.

Thanks for the quick reply. I tried switching my perks around, but the perk in the 5th slot keeps unequipping. hopefully it will fix soon

Ill try explain what I have noticed with the benefit of being higher ego, gun damage on all guns have been The same give or take 10 damage, but what I did notice is that you do gain extra boots within that gun if its quality is blue or higher, eg: lvl 500 Smg perc = gain 5% reload speed, now same gun at 1300 ego reload speed + 8% yeh there is not a lot in it but at 5000 ego your looking at a legendary weapon that would have a lot more greater advantages as it has multiple stat boots, it's also the same for the shields and grenades.

0, 50, 100, 250, 500, 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000.

Those are the EGO Ratings to unlock a new perk slot.
