This Cyberpunk 2077 Best Skills Guide covers the details of all the skills of Cyberpunk including Body, Reflexes, Technical Ability, Cool, and Intelligence Skills.
Skills are different from Perks and Attributes in a way that you don’t spend skill points to improve them. Instead, each skill needs to be leveled up in different ways which we will explain in the guide below.
You need to play the game in specific ways or specialized playstyle to increase the related skills.
For example, when you kill many enemies using a machine gun, it increases the Annihilation skills. The more you kill this way, the more XP will be granted which is directly added to the specific skill that was related to the play style.
