Athletics in Cyberpunk 2077
Being a skill for the Body attribute in Cyberpunk 2077, Athletics is an essential part of a player's character build and can be upgraded up to the level of the base attribute. However, it is extremely important for players to note that skills in Cyberpunk 2077 cannot be upgraded with Attribute points or Perk points.
The only possible way for players to earn skill points and upgrade the Athletics skills is by executing physical actions. These physical actions include:
- Performing melee attacks
- Using melee weapons
- Uprooting guns from turrets.
The actions which are enhanced by the Athletics skill can also be enhanced by using eddies to purchase respective cyberwar. However, this neither enhances the Athletics skill in any way, nor does it help in accumulating Athletics skill points.
The fastest way to level up the Athletics skill under the Body Attribute in Cyberpunk 2077's skill tree is by continuously performing melee attacks on enemies. Performing melee attacks until the point where the player's stamina bar is entirely depleted, grants the player with respectable XP towards the Athletics skill level bar.Published 21 Dec 2020, 18:58 IST
