You're basically free to experiment with mixing all sort of elements to see what you come up with but we've got some options and ideas below that we've come up with to help you out if the wealth of options is too much. If there is a specific archetype you'd like to develop then here are some options for the best Cyberpunk 2077 builds.

Next up, we have a build fit for a hacker. Hacking is such a crucial element of Cyberpunk 2077 and while you'll be doing plenty of it while stealthy, you can win fights and kill plenty of enemies while hardly touching a weapon. Nevertheless, we've got a couple of good weapons to use at the bottom for when things get a bit dicey.

Best attributes:

  • Intelligence
  • Technical Ability

Best perks:

  • [Quickhacking] Biosynergy (enables RAM recovery during combat at a rate of 4/8/12 units per minute)
  • [Quickhacking] Forget-me-not (eliminating a target affected by a quickhack instantly recovers one RAM unit)
  • [Quickhacking] Diffusion (quickhack spread distance is doubled)
  • [Breach Protocol] Total Recall (the ICEpick daemon reduces all quickhack costs by an additional RAM unit)
  • [Breach Protocol] Turret Tamer (unlocks the Turret Tamer daemon during Breach Protocol, which sets the status of every turret in the network to friendly for 3/6 minutes)

Best weapons:

  • M2067 Defender (LMG)
  • Carnage (shotgun)
  • Kanabo (melee)

Give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
