During our walkthrough of Cyberpunk 2077, we explored all the possibilities for the aforementioned stat and how it functions. We also noticed that it is not tied to a specific Attribute. So, to keep things interesting, follow our guide, and you will learn everything about Mitigation in Cyberpunk 2077.
Cyberpunk 2077: Mitigation Explained
To begin with, Mitigation is a stat that gives you a chance to take less amount of damage when you are hit. There are two variables that will affect the outcome of this stat in a fight:
- The first one is Mitigation Chance, which indicates the percentage of probability that Mitigation will be triggered when you take a hit.
- The second is Mitigation Strength, which indicates the amount of damage that will be reduced when Mitigation is engaged in a fight.
So, for example, when your Mitigation Chance is 25 and your Mitigation Strength is 50, it means that you have a 25% chance of mitigating 50% of the possible damage that you can take.
To increase each of these two stats, you need to unlock levels of different perks in the Skill Tree. For example, if you have reached Dash Perk Level 2, you will unlock the Can’t Touch This using 1 Perk Coin, and it will give you +100% of Mitigation Chance when performing a Dash. Alternatively, you can get +30% of Mitigation Strength in mid-air by unlocking Aerodynamic if you have Level 3 Air Dash and one Perk Coin.
