How to Get Abilities in Crackdown 3

It took a while, but Crackdown 3 has finally arrived. It should be a familiar romp for those used to its brand of action and combat from previous games. Likely if you’re here, you’re probably wondering how to get abilities in Crackdown 3 to help make your chaos causing that much more effective.

Abilities are a key part of growth in Crackdown 3. Everything you do is tied to a particular skill. A few examples include Agility which increases your movement potential, Driving which gives you more advantages out on the roads, and Explosives which, you know, makes you blow up things better.

Getting abilities in Crackdown 3 is pretty simple, but a bit grindy depending on your playstyle. Essentially every time you level up until you hit the cap in particular skill, you’ll gain a new ability.

For example, reaching level 5 in Firearms grants you a new weapon called the Graviton Tether which hits enemies and chains them together. Level 2 Strength unlocks the Ground Pound ability which lets you come crashing down on a group of enemies.
