This is a list of Intelligence Perks found in the game Cyberpunk 2077. Read on to learn about the Intelligence Attribute, how it affects your character, how to acquire perks, and what Intelligence Perks are found in the game.

What is the Intelligence Attribute?

In-Game Description

Intelligence determines your netrunning proficiency. Every level of intelligence will:
- Increase cyberdeck RAM capacity by 4%
- Increase quickhack damage by 0.5%
- Increase quickhack duration by 1%

Affects Physical Stats

The Intelligence attribute will determine how smart V is going to be. Having high Intelligence will improve actions that require greater mental abilities like hacking. An attribute every netrunner needs!

Allows you to Pass Skill Checks

Some conversations will provide extra dialogue options if you pass the skill check required. This will open up new possibilities when interacting with characters or the environment as long as your stat is high enough.
