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

What is the Technical Ability Attribute?

In-Game Description

Technical Ability represents your technical know-how. It allows you to unlock doors and use Tech weapons. Each increase in level will increase your Armor by 5%.

Affects Tech Stats

The Technical Ability attribute will determine how knowledgeable V is when it comes to tech. How to destroy it, and how to make it. Increasing it will improve crafting and provide bonuses when using Tech weapons. Having a high Technical Ability attribute is going to give you the magic touch when it comes to mechanics.

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.

    • In the crafting screen, would love to see a comparison between what I'm currently equipped with vs what I've selected to craft. In the Inventory screen, I have no idea where any extra weight is without going into each category (weapons, clothes, etc). Please add some sort of weight indicator next to each category so I know exactly where I seem to be overloaded. In the Map, please mark completed items (assault in progress, access points), grey out the icons or something similar?

    • In ghost town after meeting up with Mitch and Scorpion it won’t let me talk to them to continue the mission. Have tried leaving and coming back skipping time... doing other missions nothing has worked any ideas?
