Advancement Points or (AP) are used to improve your skills. They can be obtained by several means:

  • You may start the game with unspent AP, depending on your chosen background.
  • Each time your Character Level increases, you are awarded with 10 points of AP.
  • Some Perks can also give you a one-time bonus of AP.

The more AP points you have acquired throughout the game, the enemies will become tougher to deal with (one example is that a single enemy can survive a headshot with a fully upgraded firearm), as well as the minigames will become harder to complete (an example being there will be like 10-12 lines with a 20 second timer to complete a hotwire minigame).
