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.

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, for a total of 22 starting Attribute Points.

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.

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 through the character menu, Attributes will remain, so be sure to place them carefully.

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.

Each Attribute Has Perks and Skill Trees

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.
