Money in Cyberpunk 2077 can mean anything - from spending a few eddies on a soda, to blowing 50k on a new motorbike. But you start with nothing and it can feel like it takes ages to earn to smallest amounts. Visiting weapon vendors or enhancement selling Ripperdocs will taunt you with options you just can't afford yet. So how do you make money in Cyberpunk 2077?

The most effective way is just to complete missions. Main and side missions will earn well, as will all the gigs that are given to you by fixers throughout each region. Helping the NCPD stop crime and take down gangs will net you a bit extra too.

To boost you're earnings, make sure you're looting absolutely everything as well. Spam the pickup button with everything possible, then sort through your inventory when your by a vendor and can sell it. If you find yourself not using your consumables – a lot of the food and drink options are reskinned versions of the same thing – you can sell them too. And make sure you're checking the value of the junk items you pick up, because you might find a few that are seriously valuable.

That's all there is to it, really. If you're finding yourself short of cash often, slow down the main story, do some side missions and gigs, and make sure you're looting everything. Sell the weapons you don't use because the higher tier they are, the more they'll be worth. Before long you'll be able to afford whatever you want.

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.
