Cyberpunk 2077: Tech Engineer - complete character build Cyberpunk 2077 guide, walkthrough

On this page of the Cyberpunk 2077 guide, you will read about one of the suggested complete builds for your character. You'll learn how best to distribute attribute points, what equipment and mods to choose, and what perks to opt for.

One of the most interesting types of firearms available in Cyberpunk 2077 is the Tech weapon: a powerful kinetic weapon that fires bullets driven by electromagnetic pulses. Tech weapons are long range and can penetrate all sorts of surfaces, like walls or containers. Moreover, the Technical Ability developed in the suggested build will allow you to craft powerful items and useful modifications.

Character creation

When you create a character in Cyberpunk 2077, you will be given 7 points to distribute among the five main attributes. It's important to note here that you can't assign them all to one attribute, because the limit of each attribute in the character creator has been set to 6. We suggest distributing the attribute points as follows:

  1. Technical Ability: 6 points;
  2. Reflexes: 6 points;
  3. Body: 4 points.

Make sure you use all available attribute points when creating a new character. If you don't, the unused attribute points will be lost.

Key attributes

The main attributes for the suggested character build in Cyberpunk 2077 are the Technical Ability and Reflexes. The rest of the attribute points should be assigned to Body.

  1. Technical Ability: this attribute allows you to use Tech weapons, but it also increases your character's Armor and the lock opening ability;
  2. Reflexes: this attribute is primarily responsible for mobility and critical hit chance (1% per level), but it also unlocks access to the most important rifle perks;
  3. Body: An additional attribute worth investing the remaining points into, but only after the previously mentioned main attributes have been maxed out. The Body attribute primarily increases the character's health and stamina.

Key perks

Below, you will find a detailed list of all of the most important perks that you should pay attention to while developing your character in Cyberpunk 2077. These perks will be crucial and greatly affect the effectiveness of the Tech Enginner build.
