To holster your weapon in Cyberpunk 2077, you can stow it by double-tapping whatever your assigned button is for the weapon select wheel, which is usually either Triangle, Y or Left Alt, depending on your platform of choice. It's a piece of knowledge worth keeping in mind - walking around with a machine gun or a sword on full display is one of those things that might make people nervous, and it's not like you're the only person who's armed in Night City. Fortunately, I've got the lowdown on how to holster your gun in Cyberpunk 2077 below.

Generally walking around with a weapon out in Cyberpunk 2077 isn't a good idea. Just actively pointing a gun at people will eventually count as a crime if you keep doing it, and in some areas it will cause panic just to have one in the open. 

You can avoid that by putting your gun away and holstering it with a double tap of the button you use to cycle between weapons - so Triangle on PlayStation, Y on Xbox and left alt on PC. You can also hold down that button to bring up the weapon wheel and change things but the quickest way is a quick double tap of the that button. Just make sure it's a proper double tap or you'll just start cycling weapons if you're too slow.

It's a simple thing but, as we mentioned, it's easy to miss. I spent an embarrassing amount of time using the radial wheel to put away weapons, knowing it wasn't right but unable to remember what the other options mentioned were. I didn't then find out how to actually do it until I finally got the Cyberpunk 2077 Mantis Blades and got an extra little mini tutorial explaining how to put those away.
