When it comes to Cyberpunk 2077, the most common question is whether or not to join one of the factions. Not so much in terms of what weapons they should use, because almost everyone just gets the strongest katana and calls it a day. Apart from that, we’re sure there are people who want to know about Cyberpunk 2077’s best weapons, and we’re here to help. So, delta, don’t dare, because here are some major Cyberpunk 2077 weapons!
Johnny Silverhand’s Gun
We’re sure you want to get your hands (pun intended) on Johnny Silverhand’s gun after seeing all those flashbacks. Given that he’s in your head, it’s only fair that you get one of his prized possessions.
To obtain the gun, you must make decisions that will make Johnny more friendly toward you until you reach the questline where Johnny will ask you to lend him your body for a specific period of time. You’ll eventually pick up the Chipper mission. By the end, you’ll be facing Grayson, a lone gunman linked to the assassination of Johnny. You can now obtain Johnny Silverhand’s gun, which is known as Malorian Arms 3516, after defeating all enemies.
The Malrorian Arms 3516 has fantastic attack animations and a special ammo that burns enemies, giving the phrase “we’ve got a city to burn” a new meaning. Johnny’s gun, of course, does a lot of damage, so you’ll be using it for its stats as well as its novelty. While we’re on the subject of Johnny’s earthly possessions, keep your eyes peeled for his snazzy Porsche 911!
Skippy is another handgun on the list. Skippy, like the Malorian Arms 3516, is unique for a different reason: it’s a smart gun with self-guided bullets that help it zero in on targets. Skippy also adapts to your skill level, so you won’t have to worry about upgrading.
It’s well worth getting because, aside from its accuracy, it also deals decent damage for a sidearm. Plus, when I say it’s a smart gun, I mean it, because it has a very animated and oddly amusing AI that talks to you and makes all sorts of quips when you use it.
The disadvantage is that you are not the actual owner. Skippy is, in fact, a requirement of the Machine Gun side quest, which requires you to return it to Regina, the owner. You can keep Skippy, but all of its dialogue will be replaced by BAD USER, which is a bit odd in its own right. If you don’t want that to happen, you can agree to return Skippy and skip the quest, but you won’t be able to store it alongside the wall in your storage, so you’ll have to keep it. Of course, this means he’ll constantly refer to you as a BAD USER, but hey, you can’t have it all!
Gold Plated Baseball Bat
Hello, Samurai! Other than the katana, did you know there are other melee weapons? Of course you do, but they’re not nearly as cool as a traditional Japanese sword. However, there are always exceptions to the rule, and the Gold Plated Baseball Bat is one of them.
Before you do anything else, keep in mind that this is a melee weapon that isn’t lethal. It’s unlikely that you’ll be able to use it in a deadly fight, but it will have its uses. There’s also the fact that it’s a gold-plated baseball bat. It doesn’t have to be useful (though it should be); all it has to do is be cool!
You’ll need to humour Johnny Silverhand to get the mission Second Conflict, which is where you’ll get this one, just like you did for the Malrorian Arms 3516. Henry, a former Samurai member, is tasked with pouring concrete on Denny’s pool, which is where you’ll find Denny’s golden bat.
The Overwatch Rifle is the last but certainly not least. Aside from the obvious jokes about another company’s role-based hero shooter, this is a fairly reliable and well-rounded weapon, as it deals a lot of damage, reloads quickly, and comes with a custom silencer.
To get this gun, all you have to do is finish Riders on the Storm, which requires you to follow Panam Palmer.
So there you have it, our best weapons list for Cyberpunk 2077! Getting these arms, Samurai, will bring you closer to becoming the ruler of this decadent and futuristic metropolis. Now get outta here, delta. You have a city to destroy!
