Hey, choomba, if you want to roleplay as the most optimal V in Cyberpunk 2077, then understanding the game’s various leveling systems is important. In this Cyberpunk 2077 Leveling guide, we’ll go over and explain each of the character leveling systems in detail.
Cyberpunk 2077 Leveling
Leveling up is extremely important in Cyberpunk 2077 as you unlock enhancements, perks and valuable gear.
There are a bunch of leveling systems at play but don’t worry! We’ll explain them all and even tell you how you can gain some XP.
Types of Experience
Let’s understand the experience points system first. Your V can gain experience for Character Level, Street Cred, and skill.
By completing quests and side jobs, you will be able to increase your Character level and Street Cred and by using certain weapons and actions, you will be able to enhance your skills.
The overall level or the character level will let you choose and enhance 5 attributes including Body, Reflexes, Technical Ability, Intelligence and Cool. When you level up, you gain attribute points to spend in any of these attributes.
Its recommended that your first priority while leveling up should be technical ability and intelligence attributes as they will help you unlock doors faster and interact with computers efficiently.
Main Character Levelling depends on how much XP you are able to net off during the main quests. The objectives will obviously contribute the most towards the goal.
Perk points are also gained along with Attribute points when your character levels up.
The perks points unlock the perk slots that can be used to fill in two skills to their maximum level in up-to five perk slots.
Street Cred Points
Street Cred Points can also be unlocked as you progress through the game step by step. As you complete the Street Stories, the street cred points will increase.
Completing main quests also contributes to gaining Street Cred XP as you are unlocking the game world too.
This point system ensures that the players keep their focus on the main quest of the game rather than just side grinding.
With Street Cred points, you can buy some pretty dope gear, but for that, you need to focus on the main challenges.
Skills are leveled by gaining skill points. You gain skill points only if you use a certain skill in the game.
Each skill can be leveled up to 7, after which you need to level up the attribute first so that you then level the skill even more. Skills are basically subcategories of main attributes.
Earning experience points to level up all the aspects discussed above is really easy. Pretty much anything you do in the game will contribute to farming your XP, either it’s running around, killing enemies, unlocking doors, literally everything.
You get a straight 250 Streed Creds for performing a stealth execution.
For Street Creds, assaults are very effective and so are solving the organized crime missions, so always makes sure you do that.
The more XP you get the more chance you have of leveling up. You have to follow the tip of farming more XP and eventually, you will level up. Main jobs are the best way to level up quickly since it provides you with more XP.
You can complete the main jobs with high difficulty to earn more XP and level up fast. You can also follow other methods of farming XP but they will take more time to farm significant XP to level up.
XP Farming Tips
There are several ways in which you can farm XP in Cyberpunk 2077.
Mains jobs give the most XP. Complete as much as possible main jobs to farm XP quickly. Completing main jobs is the best way for farming XP in Cyberpunk 2077.
After main jobs, you have different side jobs as well which will reward you with XP.
These jobs give you less XP than main jobs but side jobs also take less time. You can complete multiple side jobs for earning more XP in less time.
Just like side jobs completing Gigs is also a way to farm XP in Cyberpunk 2077.
You can complete different Gigs and get XP for completing them. You will get less XP than main jobs but the time to complete a Gig is also lesser.
When are left with no more side jobs you can also complete NCPD Tasks and earn XP from them. These tasks give you less XP but you can still try this method since it takes less time.
To increase the amount of XP you are earning from different jobs you can set the difficulty to high.
More difficult to complete gives you more XP. In case you have a strong character we will suggest you raise the difficulty to farm more XP from the tasks you are doing.
