Here are some of the perks that you should consider equipping for Robin, based on your playstyle. We have categorized them according to the Perk Slots they should be equipped in.
Perk Slot 1
Reticent Recon is ideal to be equipped in Perk Slot 1, at Level 2. This perk gives bonus XP for those enemies that carry an objective. It also enhances Robin’s climbing speed and lets him capture points quickly.
The only drawback to this perk is that it reduces chest extraction speed.
Focused Flight should be equipped in Perk Slot 1, at Level 8. It makes the Ability Meter fill faster after Longshot kills.
Perk Slot 2
Scavenger is a pretty appreciated perk for Slot 2, at level 3. This perk increases the amount of ammo that you gain from assassinations.
Ideal to be equipped in Slot 2, at Level 10; Broadhead increases arrows’ damage from charged shots. Not just this, Broadhead also makes the arrows less vulnerable to break. The only drawbacks, however, are that short-range accuracy and quickfire damage is decreased.
Bodkin Point is also an ideal perk for Slot 2, considering the beginner-friendly experience it offers. Where Broadhead increases the damage of quickfire, Bodkin Point increases the speed and range of the arrows.
Perk Slot 3
To be equipped in perk slot 3, at level 9, Elemental Arrow makes the ethereal arrow explode after a specific time period. Though this effect seems a little underwhelming, it proves out to be of great usage as the exploding arrow is impossible to be dodged.
Mercurial Arrow is ideal to be equipped in Perk slot 3, at level 10. This is because it grants an explosive effect to the arrow upon impact. However, unlike in Elemental Arrow, Mercurial Arrow’s arrow has a shorter range
