How to Permanently Unlock Skills in Sifu

Born to a martial arts master, it seems almost inevitable that you’d see him killed. And thus starts your lifelong story of vengeance. But to truly pummel your father’s killer into the ground, you’ll need skills. Lots of them. But if you’re not careful, a death will mean you lose it… unless you unlock it permanently.

To permanently unlock skills in Sifu, you’ll need to approach the skill tree in your headquarters. In the skill tree menu, you’ll find that there are eight possible skill combos you can unlock. You can purchase these skills with the experience you get by completing levels and destroying your enemies.

When you first look at a skill, you’ll notice that there are two options: unlock and permanently unlock. Unlocking a skill is cheaper than permanently unlocking a skill, but if you die, you lose that skill and have to re-earn the experience to purchase it again.

But if you opt to permanently unlock the skill, you’ll retain it even after you die and come back. But here’s the catch. It’s not enough to permanently unlock that skill once. You must purchase the permanent unlock six times. That’s what the x5 text means beside the skill.

Don’t worry if you die before that happens. If you do, you’ll just need to purchase the permanent skill again, and you’ll find that your progress is retained. So, you can keep on grinding or progressing through the game like normal, without feeling like you’ve wasted any of your time.

If you’re struggling with Sifu, well, you’re not alone. Check out our seven tips and tricks to up your martial arts game. Or perhaps you want to add something more to your detective board? If that’s the case, here’s how to unlock the private room door in The Squats.
