What is the best way of life

Cyberpunk 2077 Character Creation Guide: Best Life Path and Best Attributes

In an RPG as deep as Cyberpunk 2077, character creation plays a huge role in the game. Your version of V is likely to be different from everyone else's versions of V. This affects how you play the game, what missions you complete, and what characters you align yourself with. It all starts with the character creation screen, which can be quite intimidating for some people, especially those who have never played an RPG with a heavy emphasis on stats and backgrounds. Cyberpunk 2077's many stats and options can be overwhelming, but you don't need to worry. We've turned our backs on you with this handy guide that covers everything from life paths to attributes.

Best way of life

In Cyberpunk 2077 you can choose from three life paths. You'll pick one before you even have a chance to customize V. Your life path decision is arguably the most important decision you will make in character creation. This is your character's background and will affect the opening of the game and how other characters in Night City will react to you.

The three life paths are Nomad, Streetkid and Corpo. They are all very different, but there is no one right answer. Ultimately, you should choose which background is right for the type of character you want to play. If you want to be a ruthless businessman go with Corpo. If you're more into a criminal from Night City's seedy underworld, choose Streetkid. If Night City doesn't suit you at all, go with Nomad so you can start in the badlands around the megacity.

Here are basic summaries of all three life paths so that you can decide which one to choose.

  • nomad - You are an outsider who loots junkyards and gas stations on the arid outskirts of Night City. Nomads have a bad rap among Night City residents, especially the elite, but the nomad communities in the Badlands are closely related.
  • Street kid - You have lived your life on the streets of Night City dealing with your fair share of gangs, fixers and criminals. Based on your experience, there is no shortage of street smarts and connections in key parts of the city.
  • Corpo - You are a ruthless corporate agent. Night City's corporate world is full of corruption and you are no stranger to having bent the rules in your favor and exploiting the secrets of others for your own benefit.
