Cyberpunk 2077 Skills
Each Attribute contains a set of Skills. Both Attributes and Skills provide different bonuses depending on your style of play. Skill levels increase as you perform activities associated them. For example to raise your Blades skill, you need to use Blades in combat and you will be granted Blades experience and then at a threshold the skill will level up.
The maximum level of a Skill is limited by the level of the Attribute that it belongs to.
Skills are but a part of your Character’s build and are strictly linked by your Attributes. That means that you can’t level a Skill higher than your Attribute level. You will be leveling your Skills by directly using them. Some skills can also be enhanced through Cyberware. Meanwhile, other Skills can come in useful during dialog, offering responses you wouldn’t be able to pick otherwise.
This is the ability to bend the surroundings to your will, such as forcing doors open with the Gorilla Arms, knocking out your enemies, carrying bodies around as meat-shields (or hiding human bodies in refrigerators or trash bins), and even breaking apart the turrets to use their guns against your enemies.
Reflexes determine your reaction speed. They directly affect your Evasion, with each level increasing your chance to avoid enemy attacks by 1%. Reflexes also increase Crit Chance by 1% and Mantis Blade damage by 3% per level as well as improving your overall attack speed and movement speed. This Attribute affects your overall proficiency with Rifles, Pistols, and Revolvers. Your level in Reflexes also slightly affects how quickly you gain experience for related Skills.
This index measures how well the character stands up to stress, fear, pressure, physical pain, and/or torture. In determining your willingness to fight on despite wounds or your fighting ability under fire, Cool (CL) is essential. It is also the measure of how "together" your character is and how tough they appear to others.
Your Technical Ability determines how much of a tech specialist you are, It improves your proficiency in crafting items (especially weapons), as well as your proficiency with Tech weapons and effectiveness against drones, mechs, and robots in combat. Each level increases your Armor by 5%. Your Technical Ability also unlocks unique dialogue options and opens new pathways for you around the world.
This is a measure of your problem-solving ability; figuring out problems, noticing things, remember information. Almost every character type will need a high Intelligence.
