  #include <iostream>

using namespace std;

class Player{
    private:
    string name;
    int score;
    int health_status;
    string weapon;
    int strength;

    public:
    void input(string name,int score,int health_status,string weapon,int strength);  //you may chose to leave empty, or add parameters
    void output();

};

int main()
{

    Player info;

    info.input();
    info.output();

    return 0;

}

void Player::input (string N_ame, int S_core, int H_ealth_status, string W_eapon, int S_trength){

cin >> N_ame;
cin >> S_core;
cin >> H_ealth_status;
cin >> W_eapon;
cin >> S_trength;

name = N_ame;
score = S_core;
health_status = H_ealth_status;
weapon = W_eapon;
strength = S_trength;
}

void Player::output(){

    cout << name << " " << score << " " << health_status << " " << weapon << " " << strength;

}
Edit: You don't have the <string> header included, the compiler would have said something about that.

the input function requires arguments, you didn't supply any.

You should make the parameters const, with strings passed by reference:

void Player::input (const string& NameIn, 
                    const int ScoreIn,
                    const  int Health_statusIn,
                    const string& WeaponIn,
                    const int StrengthIn ) 
{


I changed the naming convention to something less annoying IMO, you will have to change the names inside the function to match.

Another Idea is to use a constructor for this purpose, I leave it to you to research how to use a memeber init list.
