Acquiring attributes is an important part of Cyberpunk 2077 and will go a long way towards deciding how your character will play the game. Further, each attribute has its own skill tree that will allow your character to further refine his or her skills. At launch, there are five attributes that players can work with. However, there is also an empty spot for a sixth attribute that seems to be unaccessible right now. So the question must be asked, how do you unlock the final attribute, and what is it for?
How to Unlock the Sixth Attribute in Cyberpunk 2077
At the time of writing, there is no way to unlock the sixth attribute for your character. Currently, players can only access the body, reflexes, technical ability, intelligence, and cool nodes attributes. However, it seems unlikely that the final attribute slot will stay locked up forever, but no one really knows when it’ll be put to use or for what reason.
Our best guess is that the sixth attribute slot is being reserved for some type of DLC down the road. We already know that there will be free DLCs coming in 2021 and likely some paid content in the future. So it makes sense that the final slot is a tease for the upcoming DLCs. Of course, that’s just speculation at this point.
It’s also possible that the sixth attribute slot could be tied to some late-game content that hasn’t been uncovered yet, but we think that’s also unlikely. Considering the amount of hype the game has received and the number of players exploring Night City, it seems that people would have uncovered its use by now if there was one available.
Additionally, you may remember that CD Projekt Red developed The Witcher 3 which received additional perks with DLCs. So for now that’s our best guess and it probably should be yours too!
