Cyberpunk 2077: How to Level Up All Skills

Cyberpunk 2077 has 12 different skills, split between its five main attributes. All skills within an attribute are capped by your attribute level, meaning if you’re only level 5 in Cool, you’ll only be able to unlock perks that are level 5 or lower within any of Cool’s attributes. These skills are leveled up by performing actions that use that particular skillset. The problem is, the game never actually clarifies what actions will help you level up each skill. In this guide, we’ll talk you through how to level up all skills in Cyberpunk 2077.

Due to the relatively small amount of XP you’ll earn for completing each of these activities to level up your skills, it can take a seriously long time to level them up to 20 (the max level).

This requires over 500,000 XP to be earned in each skill, so you better get grinding.

The good news is that every time you level up a skill, you’ll get a reward of some sort. What it is exactly depends on the skill, but most of them offer up Perk Points fairly regularly, as well as increases to things like stamina, health, attack speed, and more.

That’s everything you need to know on leveling up all skills in Cyberpunk 2077. Head over to our guide wiki for more tips and tricks, search for Twinfinite, or check out more of our coverage on the game below.
