Cyberpunk 2077 Guide: Tips and Tricks for Beginners
If you're just getting started with our Cyberpunk 2077 guide, then you may be looking for some tips and tricks to help get your adventures in Night City underway. Fortunately, we've compiled a list of everything you need to know before getting started with the game below. Be sure to read through this thoroughly before you get started.
Take your time
Our first big tip for playing Cyberpunk 2077? Take. Your. Time. There's so much to see and do in Night City that the initial hours of your adventure can be completely overwhelming. There are loads of systems and mechanics to wrap your head around right from the word go, but don't worry — things will start to click eventually, once you're gotten used to the constant buzz of this dominating metropolis.
Take your time and enjoy the sights. Take a walk around the block, or hop in your car and just drive around while listening to the radio. Try to immerse yourself in the game's world before you start wrestling with all of those quests and characters.
You may start playing Cyberpunk 2077 with your head full of ideas. You may think that you know exactly what kind of character you want to play as — and that's fine — but take our advice and experiment every now and then.
You might be a fan of pistols and revolvers, but have you even tried wielding a katana, or going crazy with a shotgun? There are loads of weapon types and subsequent styles of play to uncover in Night City, and even if you're just testing the waters, we promise that the experience will be worthwhile. Who knows? You might even find a new favourite.
Check out all the sensitivity options
Not a fan of how gameplay feels in Cyberpunk 2077? Having trouble hitting a target? You may want to check out the game's numerous sensitivity options that are buried in the settings menu. These options run much deeper than they do in most other games, allowing you to tweak dead zones and calibrate how quickly you want the camera to swing.
Playing around with these settings is the best way to find your ideal setup, and if you happen get it totally wrong, you can always hit the "reset to default values" button and start over. Definitely worth checking out if the game feels even a tiny bit off.
That just about concludes our Cyberpunk 2077 guide. We sincerely hope this has helped you to get the most out of the game, but if you have any further questions be sure to share them in the comments section below. And if you have any other tips, tricks, or strategies, then we want to hear about those as well.
Need to look into the sensitivity options for sure...getting insane drift on both sticks. Hasn't been an issue on the other games I've played.
Yeah it's like Ghost was at launch where your thumb lightly resting on the sticks can cause the camera to move. I'd also recommend connecting the game to a GOG account, accessible on the main menu, as you get some cool stuff like a powerful unique katana named after a TW3 sword and some TW3 clothing.
Best advice. Turn off motion blur and the other video interface options, if playing on consoles. It helps.
I completely agree about it being overwhelming in the opening hours. There’s a lot to take in!
@AJDarkstar The drift actually went away after the new firmware update. Very happy about that!!
Tips, Tricks, and Strategies:
1. Don't play this game.
Does anyone know how to report bugs in the game?
@Kidfunkadelic83 Sorry, I don’t get it.
Can anyone answer as to why on earth are there guides and walkthroughs for a game that, for all purposes, should have been delayed even further or start from scratch?
What has happened with Cyberpunk 2077 is a clear indication that until companies have decided to take time and effort in making the best games around, then there's going to be repeat and repeat.
Here's hoping Horizon: Forbidden West doesn't suffer the same.
Here's a tip that won't spoil anything for would be players. Maybe everyone has noticed, maybe not. But don't just sell all of your junk. Also, don't just break all of it down into components. Most junk has a cash value of $3, and that should be broken down. Some rarer bits of junk are worth $750 (glow bracelets, tiger earings, etc.) and those should be sold.
Why is Night City "breathing"? This HAS to be eating up performance. Stand still and look at the world. Everything is bobbing up and down. WHY!?
WHY is the world gelatinous? Why is there no SOLID surfaces in this game? Everything is "floating and breathing" on some weird subsurface. Why is there no solid ground? Nouns BREATHE in this game. What is going on!? This has to be why it runs so poorly! EVERYTHING is Breathing!? WTF!?
Man look at that thumbnail art.
They've got the fashion and character designs nailed to a T. Art that could make the iconic GTA posters blush. That chick looks so freaking cool it's insane.
What a damn shame how it all turned out then, because this game oozes character
