The Cyberpunk 2077 level cap is now level 60 - up from 50 - thanks to the release of Phantom Liberty, letting you unlock new perks, better vendor stock, and enhance your Attributes. Although it's important to remember that there are actually two different caps for V in Cyberpunk 2077, where one is your XP-based character level and the other is your reputation-based Street Cred, which remains capped at 50. The release of the Phantom Liberty expansion and the Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 update changed a lot about the game, so it's worth going over basics like the Cyberpunk 2077 level cap again, as I've laid out below.

Cyberpunk 2077 Level Cap - Character Level

The Cyberpunk 2077 level cap for your V is now level 60 if you've got the Phantom Liberty expansion, but remains at level 50 otherwise. 

Levelling up requires XP and you can earn varying amounts of it by doing pretty much anything in Night City. Each time you increase your level, you get one Attribute and Perk point to spend, but you can earn Perk points through other means too.

The maximum level for each Attribute is still level 20, however, so while you still can't max out all five Attributes to level 20, you will get closer thanks to those extra levels. Furthermore, how you spend your points within the Cyberpunk 2077 level cap will help you shape your Cyberpunk 2077 build. Remember, there's also the new Cyberpunk 2077 Relic skill tree to level up in Phantom Liberty. 

Cyberpunk 2077 Street Cred level cap

There's also a Cyberpunk 2077 Street Cred level cap, though this has not been increased since Phantom Liberty's release and remains at level 50. 

Street Cred reputation is typically earned during missions and from completing side gigs and other activities out in the city. Higher Street Cred will earn you access to better gigs from Fixers, better discounts at shops, and an increased range of items from vendors, including ripperdocs and clothing stores.
