Top 5 Tips Every Player NEEDS to Know – Cyberpunk 2077

top five tips that every player needs to
know that i wish i had known when
playing cyberpunk 2077.
first things first and this isn’t an
actual tip it’s just a jumping off point
per se
loot everything literally every single
thing you see that’s the rule you should
always do this it’s not new it’s not
unique to cyberpunk 2077 but
it’s core to the foundation of this game
once you realize how the ecosystem works
and you
always should be looting every single
thing that you see every single time
it also helps that the game has no thief
system like skyrim for example
you won’t get the cops called or get
attacked you can just walk into
someone’s home and steal everything they
own for your own benefit
with no consequences so again just as a
base foundation
loot every single thing you see all
right now with that established
tip number one is inventory management
the first thing to know is that all of
these tips and the gameplay systems
themselves tie directly back into one
another and synergize extremely well
once we’ve established that you are
looting everything
that’s the basic foundation we need to
properly manage your inventory space and
there are a number of different things
that can help you do that
first every single character will start
with three basic attribute points in all
categories right from level one
this is important because it guarantees
that you can purchase the pack mule
trait from the body attribute
no matter what everybody can that’s one
perk point for 60 extra carry capacity
and it’s a very good idea to get very
early on
second for tip number one still we’re
not on to tip number two yet but the
second part of tip number one in the
cyberware tab you’ll see a bunch of
different slots
one of which is skeleton the skeleton
slot allows you to use items that boost
your carry capacity
among other things by a percentage which
then amplifies the pack mule perk
and even with just a basic white or
green version which are very common and
you can buy them actually i think from
the ripper docks
you can get to much much higher numbers
than the basic amount which will be a
phenomenal quality of life
and utility improvement for your
playthrough to get this mod and install
it just visit ripperdocs around the city
which can be found at the location of
these icons
and buy one from them or you can find
one yourself if you’re killing enemies
and you can have them install it after
that as we said before
in the foundational part you want to be
picking up every single thing you find
and when your inventory is completely
full deconstruct
all the white and green weapons and
clothing that you aren’t wearing
keeping the blue and purple and
legendary items intact and when you are
completely full on blue and purple items
deconstruct some of those that you don’t
want as well this allows you to
accumulate crafting components have a
huge inventory
a lot of space and will become even more
useful later on tip number two
deconstruction and selling money in
cyberpunk 2077 will seem scarce if you
don’t really know how to get it
efficiently and i’ll do an entire video
on maximizing your farming to earn money
quickly later on but
in the same vein as inventory management
we need to talk about deconstruction
as you loot everything anything that you
see constantly you will get huge numbers
of consumable
food and drink items these items have no
weight so you can stack them infinitely
and just grab them all the time
they pile up extremely fast they’re
really common on shelves and on bars and
tables whatever and also for some reason
you can deconstruct them
like a coffee or a soda and get three
green
upgrade components for gear this is
important because most of the food items
that you get with a few exceptions but
for the most part are worth 10 credits
when sold however when
deconstructed they give three green
components which are sellable
worth eight credits each that’s an
increase of 140 percent
you not only increase the amount of
money you would get even if you just
sold two out of the three and not all
three
but the upgrade components are also
useful for a myriad of other things
later on
again these tips do kind of feed back
together in a sort of loop
the best part is that food and drink
items all have the same effects
alcohol is bad for you and it all has
identical debuffs water and soda is good
with all the same positive benefit
and the same with food and nourishment
effects as well however there are tons
of these items with just different names
all over the world so you can not only
double the money that you earn when
selling but also convert them into a
component that is
far more useful in mass quantities more
often
this is also true of most junk items
most of the junk that you get in the
game is worth three credits i believe
while
once in a while you’ll get something
that’s worth far more such as 750.
you can deconstruct the worthless ones
for an upgrade component one singular
instead of selling it directly and more
than double your money
there’s also a perk for this called
scrapper it’s up to you if you want to
allocate a point for this or or not but
the main thing is that food and drink
items as well as all
excess low level healing items and a
whole bunch more just
anything worth under eight or 24 if it
gives three components
or credits can be scrapped for upgrade
components that are worth much more
money
and more importantly they’re far more
useful tip number three is skill
functions and the skills in this game
can take a little bit of time to figure
out because it’s actually a
multi-layered system
there are attributes and then perks and
one is significantly more important than
the other
attributes which you choose at the
beginning of the game where you have
seven of them i believe to award
are far more important because they
dictate how much you can earn
and how many abilities you can buy in
their respective skill categories
example if i have level 16 cool which i
do i can access and purchase most of the
abilities in the subcategories for
stealth and cold-blooded but that’s not
all
these skills stealth and cold-blooded
also have their own independent
progression rewards way down at the
bottom
which will gain experience when you do
certain activities most are pretty
self-explanatory you level
assault the skill assault by using
assault weapons you level the skill
blades by using katanas or knives or
whatever else you level
stealth the skill by sneaking and
killing you get the point
these skill progression rewards give you
stat bonuses
as you level them up or sometimes most
importantly perk points with each level
these perk points get used to buy the
abilities in the tree and it’s a rather
interesting system where no matter what
play style you use you will be rewarded
for branching out no matter how much you
want to min max
because you’ll get even more stats and
perk points just from gaining a few
a couple of levels of hacking or
crafting or whatever else
so why does this matter well it matters
because if you have let’s say level
three intelligence you can only get
level three
in the breach or quick hacking trees as
you can see for me level three
intelligence leaves me capped out at
level three breach protocol
and i can’t keep going to unlock all the
extra higher level skill benefits
including perk points because it’s
capped out at three because my
intelligence
is three basically to level up the
skills you need to first
level its attribute and that’s a big
deal because attributes

can never be reset at least if they can
i haven’t found out how in my non-stop
play time just yet since launch what you
can do is spend a hundred thousand
credits which is not a small thing not
by any stretch it takes a long time to
get that amount
and reset all of your perks at a ripper
dock but attributes are there for life
so you need to be very careful about
what you pick
and why when you make a new character
you get 7 points i believe
and everything is level 3 by default
then you can level up to level 50
max level and that gives you a total of
56 points to allocate
having carefully considered all the
different skill trees maybe i’ll do a
longer video on why and how later on
the best ways to build are either 20 20
1899 as in your favorite two attributes
like
intelligence and cool for example will
be 20 thereby granting access to all of
their rewards and their sub skills
your third favorite attribute will be 18
and your least favorite
two right like i don’t know your least
favorite two but the two that you don’t
intend to use as much
will be level nine this gives you an
excellent blend of stats and also
maximizes your access to as many perk
points as possible
you could also have 20 in three
categories if you wanted to if you were
trying to min max
but you would have to choose two other
skills that would remain significantly
lower
essentially be sure of what you are
doing when allocating attribute points
because they are permanent and far less
common than perk points
sub skills can only level to the
equivalent level of their overarching
attribute and having a well-rounded
character
after maximizing one or two attributes
is very very rewarding
tip number four best weapons the game
breaks down weapons into like three
sub-categories
smart power and tech one of these is
better than the others in almost
every single situation and that is tech
basically smart weapons will have homing
bullets that seek out the target kind of
they don’t do like complete circles
around and they don’t like
fully seek out a target but they’ll bend
to reach them power weapons will send
your bullets
ricocheting off walls and tech weapons
can shoot directly through objects
even at absurd lengths like stupidly
absurd lengths as in
15 feet solid of concrete a tech weapon
just
shoots right through it all three of
these are just ways to get around cover
essentially or to improve your aim in
the case of smart weapons if you miss a
lot i guess it could be used for that
application as well
however two of them smart and power
require cybernetic mods in order to
actually function
that costs you money and money is not
exactly easy to get
and mostly what these guns are used for
is hitting enemies who are behind cover
or hitting enemies while you are behind
cover
tech weapons should always be considered
more carefully
especially a precision or sniper rifle
because it is the charged shot that goes
through
objects and not just every single bullet
reason being though
you do not need to buy any cybernetic
enhancements from the ripper dock to use
them
thus freeing up some of your money and
you can just shoot through as much
cover as you want with a charged shot
both yours and the enemies
and generally speaking tech weapons are
just more efficient and more powerful
early on in a lot of different
circumstances
it’s not universally true but if you’re
having a hard time for instance
grabbing a tech precision rifle will
help tremendously as you progress
through the game
tip number five iconic weapons and
upgrades remembering that we always loot
everything no matter what that we now
have an inventory large enough to
support that kind of play style and that
we also deconstruct whenever possible
for maximum credits and components
we now have to use those components for
the proper upgrades weapons in this game
can be upgraded
seemingly an infinite number of times
not only that but they have different
upgrade costs based on their rarity
this means that if you find a weapon
such as an iconic special weapon or even
a green one with a particular stat that
you really like
you can bring it up through the levels
with you utilizing the components that
you get from all the salvaging along the
way
never ever ever deconstruct iconic
weapons i wish i had known this when i
started because
i actually deconstructed quite a few and
you can always bring them up higher and
higher and higher basically ensuring
that if you are diligent enough about
your component farming
you can use these forever and never out
level them
this is true of any weapon you find and
is cheaper based on rarity
i have been using this widow maker for a
long time i think it started at like a
hundred damage maybe and i’ve been
upgrading over and over and over as i
progress until
now here it is still insanely powerful
still actually probably more powerful
than anything on level
still my go-to choice even 12 hours
later after leveling a bunch of
different times
never deconstruct ever iconic weapons
and don’t be afraid to just level up a
green that is
one good stat that you found that you
really like a few times while you look
for other options
basically you can bring weapons with you
forever which is why we do all the
deconstructing and the inventory
management
combined these are five things that i
really wish i knew before i went very
far into the game because had i known
all of it i might have actually made
very different decisions along the way
next time i’ll be tackling the best ways
to make money i believe stuff about
romances a dedicated video on that
side quests you name it a whole bunch of
stuff maybe even endings
because i really like the game and it’s
got incredible depth with a lot
a lot of content but that’s it for today
hope these helped
