How To Get More Ability Points In Control
Ability Points are like leveling up, they let you improve your abilities. This guide explains How To Get More Ability Points In Control as although it’s very much like a traditional leveling mechanic, you don’t actually level, it’s more reward-based.

If you like to explore and you complete a lot of Control’s side content, you’ll encounter new and exciting abilities. These abilities can be further enhanced with Ability Points, increasing an abilities potency or even adding entirely new features and functions to existing abilities.

How To Get More Ability Points In Control

You can kill as many enemies as you wish, but you won’t be seeing an increase in Ability Points. They are not like experience points, they are more like items. Certain activities will reward you with Ability Points, whereas others will get you none. It’s not a progression-based system. Below are the main activities you can complete to get more ability points in Control.

  • Complete story missions
  • Complete side missions
  • Find Hidden Areas
  • Complete Puzzles

Combining all of these different methods of earning more Ability Points is the best way to max all your abilities. The story missions and side missions are nearly enough, but not quite. Make sure to look out for potential hidden areas and puzzles.
