This is a list of Cool Perks found in the game Cyberpunk 2077. Read on to learn about the Cool Attribute, how it affects your character, how to acquire perks, and what Cool Perks are found in the game.
List of Contents
|Cool determines your resilience, composure and effectiveness in operating from stealth. Each level of Cool will:
- Increase Crit Damage by 2%
- Increase all Resistances by 1%
- Increase stealth damage by 10%
- Reduce the speed at which enemies detect you in stealth by 0.5%
- Increase enemy grapple duration by 1 sec
The Cool attribute will determine how V performs when under pressure. Increasing this attribute will improve V's nerve, allowing him to stay calm and stealthy. You have to keep your cool if you wanna go around undetected.
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.
|All Cool Skill Trees|
The Cool Attribute is divided into two Skill Trees, each with their own Perks and Skill Progression.
|Perk||Attr. Level||Effect at Lv. 1||Rating & Reason|
|Toxicology||Level 20 in Ninjutsu||Increases the duration of Poison applied to enemies by 5 seconds.
+0.2 sec. per Perk level.
This is highly dependent on skills that apply Poison immediately otherwise it would not be as effective.
|Silent And Deadly||3||Increases damage dealt by silenced weapons by 25% while sneaking.||
Silencers reduce damage by 15-30% themselves making this bonus only partially useful.
|Crouching Tiger||3||Increases movement speed while sneaking by 20%.||
This perk helps in takedowns and sneaking around allowing you to maximize stealth (and increase Stealth EXP as well).
|Hidden Dragon||5||Allows you to perform non-lethal aerial takedowns on unaware targets.||
While this takes advantage of height, there is rarely an opportunity for this skill to be maximized.
|Dagger Dealer||5||Enables knife throwing. A thrown knife returns to the hand after the time given in its description or immediately upon pickup. Hold L2 to aim and press R2 to throw.||
Throwing Knives can be effective at scoring kills with headshots.
|Leg Up||7||Movement speed after a successful takedown is increased by 30% for 10 sec.||
Movement speed increase is useful only in certain situations.
|Strike From The Shadows||7||Increases your Crit Chance by 7% while sneaking.||
Very useful when already equipped with weapons that has a high Critical chance.
|Assassin||7||Deal 15% more damage to human enemies.||
Pretty useful especially early in the game when more often, you battle human enemies.
|Sniper||9||Increases damage from headshots fired from outside combat by 10%.||
When paired with Snipers that have a high headshot multipliers, this will almost ensure a one-hit kill on any target (except for bosses).
|Cutthroat||9||Increases melee damage dealt to target enemy by 40% for 6 sec. after hitting them with a thrown Knife.||
This can see some use when using multiple Knives as this increases their damage after throwing one at a target.
|Aggressive Antitoxins||11||Grants immunity to Poison.||
There are very few opponents that use Poison related attacks making this skill only partially useful.
|Clean Work||11||You can pick up an enemy's body immediately after performing a takedown by holding R3.||
Unless you have the Transporter ability from the Athletics Skill Tree, this skill will render you unable to attack or sprint.
|Stunning Blows||11||Quick Melee Attacks with ranged weapons stagger enemies, giving you an opportunity to grapple them.||
It is very rare that you can find an opportunity to use Quick Melee Attacks, making this perk far less useful than others.
|From The Shadows||12||Upon entering combat, Crit Chance increases by 10% for 7 sec.||
Critical hits are particularly useful in finishing off opponents quickly - and making it happen more often is definitely helpful.
|Ghost||12||Detection time is increased by 20%.||
This skill is particulary useful in finishing missions in Stealth since it delays detection and unwanted battles.
|Looking Sharp||14||Headshots with thrown Knives apply Blinding to the target.||
This can be useful if you're unable to kill your target in one hit and still avoid detection.
|Venomous Fangs||14||All knives apply Poison.||
This is particularly useful when knives are used in melee combat (not thrown).
|Rattlesnake||14||Enemies affected by Poison cannot sprint.||
This skill is highly dependent on applying Poison which can only be effective once Venomous Fangs is unlocked. Otherwise, this skill is very situational.
|Juggler||16||When you defeat an enemy or land a Crit Hit with a thrown Knife, you will regain all Knives currently on cooldown.||
This allows you to keep throwing Knives without worrying about cooldown as long as you can keep getting crits or kills.
|Hasty Retreat||16||Temporarily boosts movement speed by 50% for 5 sec. when detected by an enemy.||
Good as an escape tactic however, it defeats the purpose of stealth which this skill tree is supposed to increase.
|Restorative Shadows||16||While in stealth, increases Health regen by 25%.||
This allows V to fight a bit more recklessly while in Stealth as it preserves his health.
|Critical Antidote||18||A Strong Attack or thrown Knife against a poisoned enemy will remove their Poison status, dealing instant Poison damage instead, and will have a 100% increased Crit Chance. Cooldown 5 sec. per affected enemy.||
Highly dependent on other skills and Poison-inducing weapons in order to be effective (such as Rattlesnake and Venomous Fangs)
|Corrosive Poison||18||Poison now also affects drones, mechs, and robots but with reduced effectiveness. Deals 20% more damage to poisoned enemies.||
Highly dependent on other skills as well as weapons that inflict Poison in order to be effective.
|Cheat Death||18||When your Health drops below 50%, reduce all incoming damage by 50% for 10 sec. Cannot occur more than once per minute.||
Useful especially against enemies that deal a lot of damage.
|Jeepers Creepers||20||Crouch Attacks from stealth with melee weapons deal 100% more damage and guarantee a Crit Hit.||
This almost guarantees a one-hit KO with any blade or blunt weapon.
|Perk||Attr. Level||Effect at Lv. 1||Rating & Reason|
|Merciless||Level 20 in Cold Blood||While Cold Blood is active, increases Crit Chance by 5% and Crit Damage by 25%.
+1% Crit Chance and +3% Crit Damage per Perk level.
This is a really useful perk to have as it allows critical hits to happen more often.
|Cold Blood||3||After defeating an enemy, gain Cold Blood for 7 sec. and increase movement speed by 2%. Stacks up to 1 time. The duration of each additional stack is 1 sec. shorter.||
With every enemy kill, it unlocks all of the bonuses afforded in this skill tree.
|Will to Survive||5||Increases all Resistances by 3% per stack of Cold Blood.||
While the increase to all Resistances is useful, the very low percentage of increase makes this skill somewhat less useful.
|Blood Brawl||5||While Cold Blood is active, increases damage with melee weapons by 5%.||
The damage increase is not significant enough to land deadlier blows using blades or blunt weapons but if paired with other perks in the Cold Blood tree such as Predator, then, this perk will be more noticeable.
|Frosty Synapses||7||Reduces quickhack cooldowns by 3% per stack of Cold Blood.||
The reduction of Quickhack cooldowns is useful but the Hacking skill tree has far more useful beneficial perks.
|Easy Out||7||While Cold Blood is active, increases ranged weapon damage by 10% to enemies within an area of 5 m.||
A fairly useful damage increase while Cold Blood is active.
|Rapid Bloodflow||9||Increase Health regen inside and outside combat by 5% per stack of Cold Blood.||
Combined with the other defensive bonuses of the Cold Blood skill tree, this allows you to last much longer in battle.
|Defensive Clotting||9||Increases Armor by 4% per stack of Cold Blood.||
The increase is armor is pretty significant especially in higher levels when you start having armors that increase your total armor by 100 points.
|Frozen Precision||11||Increases headshot damage by 5% per stack of Cold Blood.||
This is one of the most useful perks in the Cold Blood tree, making headshots even more lethal.
|Coolagulant||11||Stacks of Cold Blood are removed one by one, not all at once.||
This ensures that you maximize each stack of Cold Blood.
|Icy Veins||12||Reduces weapon recoil by 3% per stack of Cold Blood.||
Reducing recoil to all weapons is particularly useful but the increase itself is pretty small.
|Predator||12||Increases attack speed by 10% per stack of Cold Blood.||
The huge increase in attack speed is pretty significant especially with melee weapons.
|Quick Transfer||12||Reduces quickhack upload time by 2% per stack of Cold Blood.||
The reduction in quickhack upload time is useful but the bonus is too insignificant. More useful bonuses can be found in the Hacking skill tree.
|Cold and Calculating||14||Landing a Crit Hit has 50% chance of applying a stack of Cold Blood.||
While the added chance of applying Cold Blood on you is great, there are far better bonuses to be had such as Unbreakable and Coldest Blood.
|Pain Is An Illusion||14||While Cold Blood is active, reduces damage taken by 5%.||
The damage decrease allows you to survive longer in battle and use the Cold Bood effects more.
|Critical Condition||16||Increases duration of Cold Blood by 25%||
This allows the effects of the entire Cold Blood perks to last much longer.
|Coldest Blood||16||Increases max stack amount for Cold Blood by 1.||
This, in combination with Coolagulant, makes each Cold Blood last even much longer.
|Immunity||18||Grants immunity to Bleeding, Poison, Burn, and Shock when at least 4 stack(s) of Cold Blood are active.||
This is particularly useful as this allows you to battle any kind of opponent without worrying to much about negative status effects.
|Bloodswell||20||Upon receiving lethal damage while Cold Blood is active, prevents death, consumes all stacks of Cold Blood, restoring 10% Health per stack and grants Damage Immunity for 5 sec. Player cannot gain Cold Blood while perk is active. Cooldown 15 sec.||
This allows an emergency response when your health becomes low, allowing you to find a way to fight back.
