As is the case with a ton of other RPG games, Cyberpunk 2077 also allows you to create your starting build. You can go down multiple paths here, such as the Glass Canon or Solo Build. However, for those looking to master the hacking skills from the get-go, crafting the Netrunner build in Cyberpunk 2077 is the way to go. Below you will find our tips for the best starter Netrunner Build in Cyberpunk 2077.
Cyberpunk 2077 Starter Netrunner Build Guide
At the start of the game, you will have a chance to craft your starting build. You can spend the skill points you get to create a customized build by investing in attributes. Before you jump into Night City you get 20 attribute points that you can allocate to five different attribute types:
Note: Each attribute must have at least 3 attribute points invested in them. There is also 6 points per attribute limit at the start of the game.
The starter Netrunner build is focused on using the hacking tools to achieve your goals in Cyberpunk 2077. Moreover, hacking and stealth go hand-in-hand so if you don’t want to brute force your way in and out of situations, the Netrunenr class is for you. Netrunners use hacks like spells in Cyberpunk 2077 and can cripple the enemies by hacking into their body mods.
To hack and use stealth in Cyberpunk 2077 invest in Intelligence and Cool attributes. Here’s the attribute distribution you need for your starter Netrunner build in Cyberpunk 2077.
- Body: 3
- Intelligence: 6
- Reflexes: 3
- Technical: 3
- Cool: 5
Before investing in any stat make sure you think about what gameplay path you want to take. Are you interested in getting into more gunfights? Go want to sneak around? Is melee combat your thing? Keep in mind that attributes are level caps. Every time you get an experience point for skills in the Intelligence branch you will only level up until level 6. Make sure to increase the attribute level before the level of skills is maxed out in Cyberpunk 2077.
