Calculation

Item Efficiency

Streetwise functions by increasing the depletable Charges of an Item, which effectively increases its efficiency.
The Depletion rate remains the same, but since there are more Charges to deplete, the Item can be used for a longer duration.

Example

The above behaviour is especially useful for Toolboxes, since they actively transfer their depletable Charges into the chargeable interaction.

For example, using the Engineer's ToolboxIconItems engineersToolboxIconItems engineersToolboxIconItems engineersToolbox to repair a Generator will deplete its 16 Charges in 8 seconds at a Depletion rate of -2 c/s, and thus progress the Generator by ~17.777 %.

Streetwise III will effectively increase the depletable Charges of the Toolbox by +25 % to 20 Charges.
Since the Depletion rate will remain the same at -2 c/s, the Toolbox will now be depleted in 10 seconds instead, making it last longer and thus allowing it to progress the Generator more than without the Perk (by ~22.222 %).


Trivia

  • The original flavour text was the following: "You have to stay smart, stupidity gets you dead."
  • Streetwise stacks with other instances of itself.
