How Many Ability Points to Fully Level Up in Control?

As you play Control you’ll unlock new abilities and gain ability points. As you complete missions, find hidden areas and more, you’ll be given ability points which you can use to level up and increase the power of your abilities.

As you level up, you might be wondering how many ability points you’ll need to fully level up Jesse. Thankfully, PowerUp! is here to help you. We’ve kept tabs on all the abilities as we’ve played to let you know how many points you’ll need to level up.

All up, there are 43 ability upgrades to unlock, which will cost you a total of 132 ability points. This sounds like a lot, but don’t worry, you get plenty from completing missions and every time you find a hidden area, you’ll get more points.
