The following weapons can be found in Cyberpunk 2077. Weapons typically fall under pistols, shotguns, and rifles, and they can be either Tech, Street, or Smart. A large percentage of weapons can fit modules that can change they way they handle, those modules being Tech, Smart, or Power. Players may acquire a Tech pistol but can then replace the module so it becomes a Power or Smart pistol. Gameplay mechanics can change based on modules and modules will also have rarities attached.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Weapons are manufactured by 12 corporations in the Cyberpunk 2077 universe. Weapons availability are based on the class of weapons of the manufactures. Each manufacture is under either Lower, Middle, or Upper Tier. The higher the tier the more rare and expensive the weapons are.
Modern weapons are classified into 3 main types. Power weapons are conventional guns in the sense that they use traditional ammo, calibers and cartridges. This category includes a wide variety of weapons including polymer one shots, which are disposable, revolvers, smgs, machine guns, shotguns and pistols. High rate of fire accompanied by high recoil is a feature of most power weapons.
Tech weapons are weapons that use rail gun technology, firing projectiles that are propelled with an electromagnetic charge. What they give up in terms of rate of fire, they make up for in penetration effects depending on how long the charge is held for. These weapons use caseless ammunition, typically jacketed steel flechette.
Smart weapons use gyrojet technology to fire caseless guided ammo at enemies. This technology was first developed in the 1960s, but was unreliable during combat. In 2077, they are efficient and pin point accurate. Smart weapons are tied to weapon grips and optics to accurately scan and track the movement of targets.
