Cyberpunk 2077 character building explained: Attributes and Perks

Want to get a leg up before jumping into Cyberpunk 2077? Find out how character building works in this complicated RPG.

Published

on

Building a character might be the most important part of any RPG, and Cyberpunk 2077 is no different.

Cyberpunk 2077 is a large open-world game filled with variety and choices. At the beginning of any large game with character customization, the number one question asked is, “What’s the best way to start?”.

Fear not, we will break it all down for you so when you hop on the game at release, you know exactly how to make your choices.

Character Attributes

Attributes in Cyberpunk are a cornerstone of your character. At first, you’ll be presented with five attributes you can rank up. All of them must have three points, minimum, with a max of six points. You’ll begin with seven points to upgrade them all past three. Here are all the attributes.

  • Body: Determines raw physical power. Added ability to forcing open certain doors. Adds health, stamina, and melee damage.
  • Intelligence: Increases your proficiency with hacking and your hacking defense.
  • Reflexes: Increases skills for blades, assault weapons, and handguns.
  • Technical Ability: Each level increases armor by 5% and allows you to unlock doors and use/craft certain tech weapons.
  • Cool: Determines your resilience, composure, and effectiveness in stealth. Each level will affect stealth damage, speed of enemy detection, increase all damage resistance, and increase all critical damage.

Leveling System & Perks

Every time you level up your character, you’ll be granted an attribute point to use on any attribute. Attributes max out at level 20, so you’ll want to consider this while building your character out.

As you use weapons and abilities, you’ll upgrade your skill level for each ability like pistols and melee. While progressing, you’ll unlock perk points to use towards various other perks, which will give huge bonuses.

Some perks will be locked until you hit a certain skill level for a specific category.

So where do I begin?

Wherever you’d like! Craft your attributes around your playstyle to cater to your overall enjoyment of the game. Keep in mind what each attribute benefits for the future. You can always upgrade your attributes as you play (and even save some points if you’d like).

When you’re in a situation where you might need to use the points, you can activate them for upgrades at any time.

If you also would like custom build guides, here’s a handy YouTube video to help you out.

Good luck in Night City!

Terminator set in Fortnite

As Fortnite Season 5 comes closer to its end, new crossovers are being added to the Battle Royale. Now, Epic Games have brought along the T-800 and Sarah Connor as part of a new Terminator skin set.

Fortnite has seen more than its fair share of crossovers throughout the past few years. We’ve seen additions from Halo, God of War, Star Wars, The Walking Dead, and many others. Epic Games have now brought another new addition to the Battle Royale.

Less than a week after the arrival of The Predator, the developers have added brand new Terminator-themed skins to the game. You can choose to play as either the T-800 or Sarah Connor, and here’s how you can get your hands on them.

How to get T-800 and Sarah Connor Fortnite skins

You don’t need to do any special quest or challenge in order to get these skins. You can get yourself the Fortnite x Terminator crossover set by spending some V-Bucks in the Item Shop.

You can pick up the Sarah Connor skin for 1,800, or pay 1,500 to get the T-800. Alternatively, you can purchase the entire bundle for 2,800, which may sound like a lot but you’ll also get some great savings.

You can take a closer look at the prices of the Fortnite Future War set below:

  • Future War Bundle: 2,800 V-Bucks
  • Sarah Connor: 1,800 V-Bucks
  • T-800: 1,500 V-Bucks
  • Techno-Grip Axe: 800 V-Bucks
  • Cyberdyne Salute: 300 V-Bucks

If you purchase the Future War Bundle, then you will also be able to acquire the exclusive T-800 Endoskeleton Arm and HK Skynet Uplink Back Blings, along with the Combat Knife pickaxe. That makes this worth the money you spend.

We don’t know exactly how much longer these skins will be available in the Item Shop, so you’d better hurry up if you want to get your hands on them.

Resident Evil 8 Village Release Date

The most important detail that people want to know is when they’ll be able to get their hands on the game itself. We’re pleased to report that it’s coming out on May 7, 2021. So there isn’t too much more waiting to do.

Resident Evil 8 Village Platforms

For those wondering if Resident Evil 8 is only coming out on the new consoles and PC – it won’t be.

The game will be available at release on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.

Obviously, when you bring up the discussion of last-gen vs. current-gen, there is always going to be an inescapable fidelity issue between the versions.

But if you’re not planning on upgrading anytime soon, then at least you’ll have the option to play it on your current console.

Resident Evil 8 Village Story & Characters

The Resident Evil showcase answered a lot of questions people had regarding the series’ latest iteration. But it has also posed just as many as well.

Long-time hero Chris Redfield has been touted as a potential surprise villain in the newest game with trailers making him out to be an underhanded figure. The latest trailer shows him killing Ethan’s wife and stealing his child. It’s not the usual trademark heroism we’ve come to expect from him. So it’ll be interesting to see which direction Capcom takes him.

Other developments have led to the introduction of Lady Dimitrescu and the Witches Three. Evil and cunning figures that will only seek to make Ethan’s life a living hell.

All of this will be conducted in the Village: a gothic, surreal abode for many deranged creatures and providing little in the way of comfort. Resident Evil 8’s visuals, especially on current-gen, could make the landscape a beautiful prison for Ethan.

Resident Evil 8 Village Gameplay

Resident Evil 7 stripped back a lot of the Hollywood action-hero elements of Resi 6 and returned the gameplay to its roots, pacing the game around slower and more methodical gameplay, making you conscious of ammo, and inducing OCD because of your inventory.

Resident Evil 8 Village continues a lot of this and brings back the Guard system from the previous game. It also reintroduces some dynamic combat elements such as damaging limbs, and, of course, puzzles.

It also has to be stated that in many respects, Resident Evil 8 resembles Resident Evil 4 – considered by many to be the best in the series. Here some of the ways in which Resi 8 takes inspiration from it:

  • Your items require careful management in your inventory and need rearranging
  • Attache cases can be bought to upgrade your space
  • “What’ll it be stranger?” – It’s not the same fan-favorite merchant, but it has a reoccurring one
  • You need to collect monetary resources to buy stuff
  • The setting

There will also be plenty of puzzles and new weapons and elements for returning, and new, players to enjoy.

Resident Evil 8 Village Demos

You can currently download the Resident Evil 8 Village “Maiden” demo from the PS5 store as it is an exclusive download for Sony’s flagship hardware.

It’s a short, non-combat demo about a character that won’t even be featured in the game. It’s more of a gentle teaser that whets the appetite for the main game.

But if you want your fix now and don’t have a PS5 then fear not. It has been confirmed that another demo for Resident Evil 8 Village will pop-up down the line for all consoles.

The showcase event has really helped to drum up excitement for the hugely-anticipated horror title and it’s sure to be a captivating and disturbing title in a year of potentially great games.

Apex Legends teams hilariously play volleyball in-game with Cargo Bots

Some Apex Legends players went viral after starting a game of Volleyball with Octane’s Jump Pad and a few Cargo Bots.

A few Apex Legends fans stopped a match to play a game of Volleyball with Octane’s Jump Pad and a few Cargo Bots. This led to some hilarious results, and the clip has gone viral in the Apex community.

Apex Legends is known for its massive maps which serve as large-scale playgrounds for you to explore. Through this, you can discover brand new combat strategies, hiding spots, and tricks to practice. Alternatively, you can just mess around.

Players have been discovering fun activities to pass the time in the Battle Royale ever since it first launched. We’ve seen various creative endeavors from fans, and now a new one has been found; playing volleyball with Cargo Bots.

Teams play Cargo Bot volleyball in Apex Legends

Reddit user BeanBag373 posted a fun clip to the Apex Legends subreddit, in which they enacted a brilliant plan with the help of a few other players.

They were able to get their hands on a grounded Cargo Bot and rolled it all the way up to a spot where they had set up a makeshift Volleyball court. This consisted of Octane’s jump pads, and they would use them with Pathfinder’s zipline. 

As time passed, even more players came across this and decided to join in on the fun. Rather than messing things up for everyone, they picked up on the rules and played the game. The clip gets even funnier as more people get involved.

Eventually, someone tried to ruin the fun by shooting up the players. However, they didn’t let this ruin their resolve and continued playing as the circle got even closer. They only stopped once the area became too small to stand in.

At that point, you can predict what happened next. Everybody started shooting at each other and using their Ultimate abilities, which led to mass chaos and mayhem. Sadly, this was inevitable as the shrinking circle incites conflict.

Despite that, this was still a hilarious moment of different players coming together to have dumb fun. This is why you should play Apex Legends creatively since you can discover other neat tricks when messing around.
