Traits

From Streets of Rogue Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Traits are essentially passive abilities in Streets of Rogue. They can be beneficial or detrimental. All official characters start with at least 1 trait; more can be earned through leveling up, or in special cases, through Special Abilities. Note that some traits are exclusive to some characters and cannot be obtained by others.

Below is a list of all traits currently in-game.


 Positive Traits[edit | edit source]

Positive traits provide bonuses and have a positive Custom Character Point Value (CCPV). Positive traits award to the character as they level up. Some Characters begin the game with positive traits and Custom Characters may select these traits during character creation. By using an Augmentation Booth, you can swap a trait with another trait with the same CCPV and certain traits can be upgraded to become more powerful.

Lastly, these traits have blue text and will always appear as the second choice on the trait selection screen.
