Combat and stealth in Cyberpunk 2077 Cyberpunk 2077 guide, walkthrough

One of the most important mechanics available in Cyberpunk 2077 is combat. It consists of many aspects because the game has a wide range of weapons, skills, perks, and implants. Also, in Cyberpunk, you don't always have to be the most dangerous warrior who shoots anything that moves. You can rely on stealth, which will help you end fights quietly. Thanks to this mechanic, you will evoke even more terror because your enemy will never know when you strike.

Reconnaissance

You can perform reconnaissance before starting a battle - Combat and stealth in Cyberpunk 2077 - Basics - Cyberpunk 2077 Guide

You can perform reconnaissance before starting a battle. If the controlled character has an appropriate prosthetic eye, it is possible to zoom in the image in a similar way as when using binoculars. HUD can display information, for example, about the opponents' resistance to various types of attacks and elements.

Weapons

You will find pistols, rifles, blades, shotguns, two-handed weapons and sniper rifles - Combat and stealth in Cyberpunk 2077 - Basics - Cyberpunk 2077 Guide

You will find pistols, rifles, blades, shotguns, two-handed weapons and sniper rifles. Each weapon, of course, is described by many statistics typical for RPGs.

Weapons in Cyberpunk 2077 can overheat, for example, if you keep firing for too long - Combat and stealth in Cyberpunk 2077 - Basics - Cyberpunk 2077 Guide

Weapons in Cyberpunk 2077 can overheat, for example, if you keep firing for too long. Installing new weapon modifications should at least partially solve this problem.

Skills development

Skills in Cyberpunk 2077 are developed over time by performing the appropriate actions. This means that your character becomes stronger as the game progresses.

Melee combat

Your hero not only eliminates enemies with firearms but also melee weapons - Combat and stealth in Cyberpunk 2077 - Basics - Cyberpunk 2077 Guide

Your hero not only eliminates enemies with firearms but also melee weapons. You will find numerous knives and katanas useful in close-quarter combat. You can also attack opponents with your fists.

Hacking opponents

Hacking is a separate skill that you can develop on your own - Combat and stealth in Cyberpunk 2077 - Basics - Cyberpunk 2077 Guide

Hacking is a separate skill that you can develop on your own. With its help, you will open closed doors, for example, to get the money from a locked safe. You can also influence your opponents to make them defenseless or attack each other. Extreme cases of hacking can also make the hacked opponent commit suicide.

Eliminating opponents outside battles

Hacking opponents isnt the only way to eliminate them while remaining hidden - Combat and stealth in Cyberpunk 2077 - Basics - Cyberpunk 2077 Guide

Hacking opponents isn't the only way to eliminate them while remaining hidden. You can try to sneak behind the enemy to grab them. Then, V can make that enemy lose consciousness or break their neck. Both options allow you to get rid of an opponent without alarming the whole neighborhood.

Human shield

You can also grab opponents after starting a fight - Combat and stealth in Cyberpunk 2077 - Basics - Cyberpunk 2077 Guide

You can also grab opponents after starting a fight. In this case, you use them as human shields. The available options remain identical in this case - once the opponent helps you survive the fight, you can stun or kill them.

Implants

Implants, which you select yourself, will have a huge impact on the combat - Combat and stealth in Cyberpunk 2077 - Basics - Cyberpunk 2077 Guide

Implants, which you select yourself, will have a huge impact on the combat. Thanks to modifications of your body, you can strengthen your eye-sight (to see the weaknesses of opponents), use blades (inflict additional damage) or create an implant allowing you to stick to vertical surfaces.

Can you finish the game without killing anyone?

Yes. The developers promise that most of the weapons that we find in the game can be improved so that they will only stun enemies. Thanks to this, you will be able to play the game without killing anyone.

In addition, opponents can be knocked down, strangled and made unconscious. Even if your character is forced, for example, to fight with a boss, after winning you will be able to neutralize that enemy without killing.

Resistances

The controlled character has resistances to various types of attacks and environmental dangers - Combat and stealth in Cyberpunk 2077 - Basics - Cyberpunk 2077 Guide

The controlled character has resistances to various types of attacks and environmental dangers. The most important resistances in Cyberpunk 2077 are:

  1. Physical Resistance
  2. Thermal Resistance
  3. Chemical Resistance
  4. Electrical Resistance

The higher the resistance, the less chance that V will receive serious injuries. If the resistance is low, you need to be careful not to get into contact with this element or enemy specializing in dealing specific type of damage.

Nanowire

Nanowire is one of the most interesting pieces of equipment that can be used for stealth kills or hacking opponents - Combat and stealth in Cyberpunk 2077 - Basics - Cyberpunk 2077 Guide

Nanowire is one of the most interesting pieces of equipment that can be used for stealth kills or hacking opponents. It can function similarly to, e.g. garrote, but is also used to hack enemy implants from a distance. This allows you to neutralize your opponent without taking the risk of approaching them.
