What are Attributes?

Attributes are Your Main Stats

Attributes are the primary stats of your character. They will determine the values of your raw stats, and are also each connected to a branch of the Skill Tree, allowing for Perks granting upgrades to your character.

Perks and Skill Tree

Perks are abilities that will increase your combat efficiency with weapons, skills outside of combat like, hacking, crafting, and more. They are part of Perk skill trees which are attached to one of the Attributes.

How to Get Attribute Points

Start of the Game

The player will start the game with 3 Attribute points automatically placed in each of the five Attributes. They also have control over how 7 additional Attribute Points are allocated at the start of the game.

This placement will affect the playstyles available to your character, and cannot be changed, so choose wisely!

Best Starting Attributes

Gain 1 Attribute Point Every Level

For every time the player levels up, they will gain a new Attribute Point which they can place in any Attribute of their choice. There are no other known ways to respec or gain Attribute Points after the start of the game, so treat each of these with care.

Attribute Cap (Max Attributes)

Total of 71 Attribute Points

Start of Game 22
By Leveling Up 49
Total 71

The player starts the game with 15 set Attribute points – three in each of the five Attributes – with 7 more to place freely as they choose.

Upon reaching the max level of 50, players will have leveled up a total of 49 times, yielding a total of 71 attribute points to use among all five attributes.

Max Level for Attributes

A single Attribute can be leveled up to a maximum of 20.

With only 71 attribute points available on a save file, it is impossible to fully max out all five Attributes on a single character. It's best to decide what Build you want to go for in advance, to avoid getting locked out of key Perks due to an insufficient Attribute level.

Can You Reset Attributes?

You Cannot Reset Attributes

Currently, there is no confirmed method to reset Attributes after they have been placed.

Although Perks can be reset with the expensive Tabula E-Rasa item, Attributes will remain, so be sure to place them carefully.

    • 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?

    • The mission Sex on Wheels. Says to "Get in the Car". The marker is 10ft under the garage though. No car appearing in the garage. Nothing I do can seem to spawn it, and I've played too far forward to load a previous save point... on PS4
