This page of Cyberpunk 2077 guide tells you how to acquire legendary crafting components. Getting them may be necessary to craft or upgrade legendary weapons, armor, and other items. This is knowledge that will be useful to you in the later stages of the game.
Crafting of legendary objects - key information
As a reminder, legendary items (weapons, costumes, grenades, implants, etc.) are the highest quality items in the game. In addition to having better statistics than other items from the same levels, they may also have more unique features, such as adding unique passive bonuses or having more slots / free spaces for weapon mods.
Crafting or upgrading items requires spending certain crafting materials. There may also be legendary components among them. Interestingly, crafting certain less valuable items may require a legendary component. In the example above a legendary component is required to create a very rare weapon.
By the way, it is worth reminding that the production of legendary items is initially blocked even if you have the right ingredients for crafting. You must first purchase the Edgerunner Artisan perk from the Crafting skill tree.
Legendary components - how to get?
Legendary components can primarily be found along with other loot. The rule here is that the higher V's experience level, the greater your chance of finding higher quality items (i.e. rarer ones) and this rule also applies to components. Don't be discouraged by the fact that at first you won't find any rare crafting materials.
Remember that the mini-map can partly help in finding legendary loot. Orange X's on the mini-map (see picture above) can symbolize places where legendary items are located. This mainly means the bodies of defeated enemies who have some legendary items on them.
While looking for loot you can increase your chances of finding legendary items. Look for abandoned/destroyed robots, drones, or turrets. Always search the remains of damaged machines.
If you want to create or upgrade some items that require legendary crafting materials, you can also choose to buy them from selected traders (e.g. (arms dealers). Components of different types are used to make new items and to upgrade existing ones. Unfortunately, by default, each legendary component costs 1000 credits. We advise you to buy legendary components only in the final phase of the game - in other cases, spend credits on other, more important things (e.g. new implants).
