Cyberpunk 2077 - Best Assault Class Skills

 Cyberpunk 2077 has a complex leveling system with stats and points to spend, but you never get enough points to become a powerful all-rounder. You need to specialize in a specific area. In this guide, I will guide you through the best skills for the stormtrooper class so you can blast the Night City with meaty shotguns and devastating LMGs.

Before we dive into perks, let's talk about stats.

Cyberpunk 2077: Best Assault Class Build Perks

I'll first list the benefits you should be aiming for, and then I'll explain a little why. It's also worth noting that you might have to add a few points to other perks in certain categories to unlock some of the perks listed below. You must first prioritize the ones that you can immediately unlock at your current level.

Cold blood

  • Cold-blooded: After defeating an enemy, becomes Cold -blooded for x seconds. Increases movement speed by 2%, stacks up to 3 times;
  • Critical Condition: Increases the duration of Cold Blood by 5 seconds;
  • Veins of Ice: Reduces weapon recoil by 2.5% per stack of Cold Blood;
  • Defensive Clotting: Increases Armor by 10% per stack of Cold Blood.

Obviously, the main perk pool to focus on here is Annihilation. These perks reduce recoil, increase damage from shotguns and LMGs, and there are some that increase damage based on movement speed - they pair well with perks that increase movement speed when using the right weapon or when entering combat. You will also need dismemberment perks - while the dismemberment chance seems like it's purely for show, you can combine it with other skills that temporarily increase your power when dismembering someone.

Athletics allows you to maintain speed during combat without sacrificing combat effectiveness, and also allows you to take more damage and tank yourself. The one Blades perk you need fills up your armor as you move, so it stacks well with the others you've unlocked. Engineering skills give you some grenade effectiveness and ensure you are still strong against synthetic enemies, while the Stealth perk is designed for extra damage against soft enemies. The Cold Blood perks complement your movement speed perks on Annihilation, transforming you into an irresistible ride of muscle, metal, lead and death.
