Cyberpunk 2077: Stealth & quiet combat guide Cyberpunk 2077 guide, walkthrough
Last update: Monday, December 14, 2020
One of the most important mechanics available in Cyberpunk 2077 is stealth. This allows you to eliminate your opponents quietly. This works great when you want to skip direct combat. On this page of our Cyberpunk 2077 game guide you will find a few tips and valuable tips on stealth. In this way you will quickly spread fear among your opponents.
If you want to silence your enemies with strong grips you can attack them by surprise. If you approach an unexpecting enemy and click the appropriate key (F in the case of the PC version) you grab the enemy and decide on their fate.
This option does not work for high level opponents or bosses.
If you just want to stun him, click the appropriate key (R in case of PC version). In this way, your hero will perform a strong grip that will not kill the enemy, but will eliminate him from the fight for a while.
Re-using the key that starts this interaction (F in the case of the PC version) will flatline your opponent. This way you can eliminate them without drawing attention to yourself.
Remember, however, that your opponent will fight for his life. The longer you delay the decision, the greater the chance that he will break out and alert others or attack you.
You will increase the strength of this attack by developing your body level or by purchasing attributes that affect this type of interaction.
If you want to learn more about attributes, have a look at our tutorial page, where we have described the most important perks in detail.
Stunning and fighting bosses
You cannot stun high level opponents or bosses with one click. However, if you invest in the right attributes and gadgets, you can make the silent elimination easier. Unfortunately, not all killings can be performed with a single accurate punch, even if you max out your character.
Corpse lying around - what now?
If you leave a stunned/dead opponent in the open, someone may find them. Then he will most likely alert the rest of your opponents and go looking for the killer himself.
To avoid such situations, you have to hide the bodies so that no one will notice them. You can use less used places/rooms or special containers for this. However, remember that you cannot throw countless enemies in one place. Try to plan your attacks well if you want to remain hidden.
The most important thing you need to know is some important detail about the movement of your opponents. Enemies patrolling the area stick to a pattern that you can easily observe and remember.
You can use this to avoid your opponents or to make eliminating them easier.
Opponents will react to any loud noises in the area. In this way you can tip the balance of victory in your favour. The scattered enemies will have a white outline, will additionally be knocked out of patrol mode and start searching for you.
