|Fugitive: Brawler||Tier 1|
|Basic (1 pt): You take 50% less damage from all melee attacks. Because of training.|
|Ace (3 pt): You are 50% more likely to knock down enemies with a melee strike.|
The Basic version provides a 50% melee damage reduction from the melee attacks of all enemies. The Aced version of this skill multiplies the knockdown statistic of a melee attack by 1.5.
Knocking enemies down helps in fending off multiple foes, as one can be knocked down so the others may be dealt with, decreasing their firepower for a moment.
- Despite the name of the skill, no proper "martial artistry" is actually used at all in the game even after acquiring it, it instead (presumably) grants the players improved physical resistance and aptitude via training.
