Here's a selection of useful perks for each Attribute, so you'll know what to aim for as you progress in Cyberpunk 2077. Note that the cyberwares are not listed here.
You can earn perk points by gaining levels, leveling your skills, or finding the very rare and valuable Perks Shards.
The perks are not connected to each other, so there is no need to unlock any of the Perk Points along the way to be able to invest in the bonus on the far left, far right, or at the bottom.
You can go and pick the best perks at the end of the tree as long as you have a high enough Attribute score.
Don't waste points on bonuses you're not interested in. Note that it's also possible to reset the perk points with a Tabula E-Rasa chip to redistribute them.
Here is a list of what we consider to be the best general perks to invest in at the beginning of the game, those that are almost universally interesting and don't require too much investment in Attribute points while still making a big difference.
