Smuggler Job Training
As a smuggler, your abilities would rely heavily on having good reflexes and either aim or physique, depending on your method of attack. You’d learn to be pretty sneaky, fly well, and hit your foes where they least expect it, all while making your living in the underbelly of the United Galactic Confederacy, or U.G.C. The life of a smuggler is one of profit through luck and skill.

Note: Sneak Attack's in game description (and thus the description above) is outdated as of version 0.9.013. The effect is the same as Aimed Shot, but Sneak Attack affects melee attacks instead. In other words, Sneak Attack upgrades melee attacks against stunned or blinded targets automatically, rather than granting a combat ability.
Flash Grenade is an Aim vs Reflexes check. It is more accurate than most Status attacks, as the attacker's Aim is effectively 10 points higher.
Low Blow base damage equals Physique / 2. If used on a target with Ball size greater than 7, damage is doubled. Stun chance is a Physique vs Physique check and does not work on robots without genitals.
Lucky Breaks bonus Defense is equal to Evasion / 3 and capped at Level / 2. The extra 10% miss chance is a separate check from the standard Evasion.
Sneak Attack and Aimed Shot bonus damage is equal to Level * 3 + Intelligence/2. If the target is both Blind and Stunned, it does an additional + Level. Take Advantage bonus damage is equal to Level * 2.
Stealth Field Generator adds 80% Evasion and increases the Evasion cap by 40% while active. Evasion cap is normally 50%. Lasts 3 rounds after activation, not 2, despite the description.
Gas Grenade does 14 + Level * 2 Drug damage to all enemies.
Grenade does 7.5 + Level * 2 + Intelligence / 2 Kinetic and Burning damage to all enemies.
Can Opener Sunder is a Physique vs Physique check.
Mag Binders Stun is a Reflexes vs Reflexes check. Damage is equal to Reflexes + Level * 2.
Booster Pack always applies Sneak Attack/Aimed Shot if Steele has Flight-Capable Wings or a Light Jetpack, with no need to activate the ability. Flying only makes basic Melee attacks automatically miss, but most enemies use special attacks that are not impeded.
