Cyberpunk 2077 Character Customization: All Skills, Attributes, and Perks

There are 12 skills in Cyberpunk 2077 and they are different from Attributes and perks. Certain gameplay options level up your skills. Skill points can’t level them. Instead, to gain XP towards a skill you will have to defeat your enemies in a certain way. The maximum level for any skill is 10. If you successfully reach any one of the skills to level 10 you will get the Ten out of Ten trophy or achievement.

If you want to see your Skill level Progression, go to the menu and click on a character, and then scroll over one of the Attributes (Body/ Reflexed/ Technical/ Cool/ Intelligence). Clicking on any of the attributes will show you the 2-3 skills tied with them. Just like, Skills tied with Reflexes attribute are “Handguns, Blades, Assault”. You can check the progression XP towards the next level of those skills by clicking on any one of them and also the rewards you can get by reaching each level.
