1. Forceskill Cypher – Intelligence

In your adventure throughout Night City, you will come across hacking challenges. You may have to breach a camera or bot. With this perk, you will be able to reduce the sequence length for a hack.

This will make the hacking experience significantly better. And if you are going for a hacker build, then this perk is a must.

2. Carhacker – Intelligence

If you want to be a hacking god, then this perk is a must. CDPR really did wonders with this perk, as Carhacker will allow you to control vehicles from afar and even blow them up as you wish.

Moreover, having this perk will not only improve your overall experience but also make certain chase missions much easier and enjoyable.

3. Gearbox – Technical Ability

You will be spending a lot of time riding vehicles in Cyberpunk 2077, and the Gearbox perk allows your vehicle to have:

  • 33% extra health
  • 25% mounted weapon damage increase
  • 0.7 ADS or lock-on-time decrease

4. Muscle Memory – Reflexes

You are a mercenary of the Night City, so weapons are second nature to you. And when taking on enemies, you will have to dive, run, and jump to save yourself from the bullets.

That is where the Muscle Memory perk comes in, as it will allow you to reload while you are running, sliding, or vaulting.

5. Comeback Kid – Body

Lastly, health regeneration is extremely important, especially in the early game. With this perk, you will have a 1% health increase for every percent of health mission from your character.

This will allow you to be more effective in combat and help you save your heals for the big fights.
