Getting more money in Cyberpunk 2077 is basically your main objective when you first set out in Night City, as your character is trying their best to earn a decent amount of Eurodollars, or eddies as they're referred to. Everything you do initially revolves around collecting cash, and even when amassing money takes more of a backseat to the rest of the story itself, it's still a very important aspect if you want to pay for the most useful weapons, enhancements, gear, and more. If you've got your eye on some expensive cyberware to upgrade V, then here's a complete guide on how to make money in Cyberpunk 2077.

The most effective way to make money in Cyberpunk 2077 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. While glitches and exploits come and go, just getting paid for work is the most dependable way to get eurodollars.

To boost your earnings, however, make sure you're looting absolutely everything as you too. Spam the pickup button with everything possible, then sort through your inventory when you're near 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 you pick up too, because you'll probably find a few that are seriously valuable.

So, if you're finding yourself short of cash, slow down the main story and rack up some side missions and gigs for the paycheck. Also make sure you're looting everything, selling the weapons and gear you don't use and 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.
