Best Attributes - Cyberpunk 2077

In this post, I would like to give some recommendations after making multiple Cyberpunk 2077 builds on what I think are the core or "mandatory" attributes. Of course, it all depends on your playstyle, and build. Still few allocations really make you shine in any situation.

So let's get into it.


Level 4

This is the first thing that I recommend when starting the game. Be sure to pick the Painkiller perk icon cyberpunk 2077Painkiller​ perk. Because healing items are limited to being able to hide and just having your health restored. This of course loses its value as the game goes on, but it is still useful throughout the whole game.

Level 15

This unlocks Adrenaline Rush perk icon cyberpunk 2077Adrenaline Rush​ and is mandatory for any kind of quickhack or netrunner build. Moreover, it gives a bit of survivability even on stealth builds in case you need to engage in loud combat.


Level 9

Getting access to Dash perk icon cyberpunk 2077Dash​ is mandatory on any character in my opinion, unless you are doing some kind of role-play. This makes traversing easier and more enjoyable. To be honest, I cannot play the game without it.

Technical Ability

Okay, this is somewhat situational, however, 80% of the time you will want maximum cyberware capacity. Maximizing it to level 20 and getting access to the Edgerunner perk icon cyberpunk 2077Edgerunner​ perk, allows you to add one or two additional iconic cyberware. These can turn the build from good to overpowered.

Technical ability also gives access to Health Freak perk icon cyberpunk 2077Health Freak​ which greatly boosts your survivability with additional healing items. I also think it is necessary for any kind of build that engages in direct combat.

Other attributes

For other attributes, I think they are somewhat optional or situational. For example Intelligence is only relevant if you are doing a quickhack build. High Reflexes gives additional Air Dash perk icon cyberpunk 2077Air Dash​ but its not as a big improvement as level 9 Dash perk icon cyberpunk 2077Dash​. Similar to Cool, which si either useful with specific weapons like Pistols, Snipers or you are minmaxing your critical damage.
