The characters attributes are divided into 4 categories also know as Feeds. These are Accuracy, Strength, Stamina, and Willpower. The amount of points in each attribute that you get to start with depends on which class you play and each time you increase a level you get 5 points to distribute how ever you wish.
Unlike some games where you can distribute the points purely to build your character, Hellgate Global has attribute requirements on everything you wear and equip as in Armor, Weapons, Mods etc. Due to this some players prefer to wait and not distribute their points each level, but to keep them in reserve until they are required to wear a new piece of Armor or use a new Weapon for example.
For each additional point you gain a 2% bonus to critical damage with melee, ranged and magical attacks and a decrease in missile spread.
