Attributes or Stats in Cyberpunk 2077 refer to the several aspects of characteristics that are used for build improvement. All Cyberpunk 2077 Attributes are leveled up by doing quests, defeating Enemies and through various actions. When the player reaches the experience threshold, it will level up providing increased stats and perk points.

As you roam the city's streets, you gain the experience you need to upgrade abilities and acquire perks. Combine the right skills and gear to create a gunslinger with inhuman reflex or a stealthy netrunner with command of all surrounding tech or practically anyone in between.

  • See Character Creation and Builds for ideas on how to optimize your character
  • See Perks for information on what special passives are available in game.

How to Level up

The player receives experience by doing quests, defeating enemies and through various actions. When the player reaches the experience threshold, it will level up providing increased stats and perk points.

How to Re-Spec Attributes

As of the game's launch, there is no way to re-spec attribute points so it's important to plan your Build as you are stuck with your choices. Using the TABULA E-RASA item available from Ripperdoc will only reset your Perk Points.

How to use Attributes (Stats)

Attributes (Stats) can be increased using atributte_points_stats_cyberpunk_wiki_guide50px Attribute Points. Said points can be earned by leveling up. Stats can be increased up to level 20.

      So, rumors are going around that certain stats are currently bugged (as of now patch 1.04 at the time of my post) I have found a few posts regarding this, here is one relating to evasion and crit chance in which the author and several others outline that certain bonuses just flat out dont work, has anybody else observed this or tested for themselves? https://www.reddit.com/r/cyberpunkgame/comments/kbcsjp/psa_some_core_statsbonuses_arent_working/

        OK, so I have been looking around and I have found numerous threads, on multiple websites and forums, warning and discussing the fact that certain stats and bonuses related to these stats appear to be bugged or broken. The ones that come up most regularly are regarding crit chance, crit damage, and evasion. Apparently bonuses related to these stats do not stack, furthermore it is possible to "break" them altogether in certain situations. For instance you can apply 2 mods that each grant +15% crit chance to one item but instead of getting +30% crit chance you will only get +15%, if you then remove one of the mods there is a chance that it will "break" the bonus entirely and you will get no bonus at all even though you still have one of the mods installed. I have also seen it mentioned that you can not apply multiples of the same mod to multiple armor pieces and have the bonuses stack, for example, installing crit damage mods on several pieces of armor will not stack, it will instead give you only a single bonus from a single mod. And as for evasion in particular, I have seen it mentioned that nothing at all actually increases the evasion stat beyond the bonus that you naturally get from reflexes, this included the bonuses added by skills, meaning that the

          Did a more thorough test this time, on hard difficulty against a green difficulty pistol wielding enemy (their damage is consistent, but the health rounds to the nearest whole number so the damage numbers are rounded not 100% exacty):

          2148 vs green pistol = 40 damage
          2003 vs green pistol = 43 damage
          1514 vs green pistol = 57 damage
          707 vs green pistol = 80 damage
          218 vs green pistol = 93 damage

          About 36.4151 armor = 1 point damage reduction in this case, unsure if this is purely reducing damage numerically or by a % (for example this pistol deals close to 100 damage when at 0 armor, so at 2148 armor it's about a 60% reduction, or 60 points of damage reduced, unsure if a weapon that would deal 200 damage at 0 armor would be dealing ~140 (60 points of damage reduced) or ~80 (60% damage reduced)
