Ever since Cyberpunk 2077 released there are tons of players who have been wondering whether the latest CD Projekt Red’s game has dual-wielding or not. If you too are curious to know the same then we have got you covered.
Is There Dual Wielding in Cyberpunk 2077?
No, there is no dual-wielding in Cyberpunk 2077. A few months back, a user took to Twitter and asked ‘Will Cyberpunk 2077 have dual-wielding’?. Responding to that user, Global Community Lead for CD Projekt Red Marcin Momot had said that there will be no dual wielding in Cyberpunk 2077.

No dual wielding. Sorry.

Due to the absence of this option, players are not allowed to use two different weapons at the same time.
The news of not having the dual-wielding had left the thousands of fans disappointed as they wanted to emulate the practice seen in various Cyberpunk works including The Matrix and Shadowrun. The strange thing is that the dual-wielding feature was seen in the first-ever gameplay footage released by CD Projekt Red.
Apart from the dual-wielding, there are various things that players had seen in earlier footage released but they are nowhere to be seen in the final product, released on December 10, 2020.
The developer of the game had earlier released a photo of Cyberpunk 2077’s collector edition, depicting V dual-wielding pistols, so it is likely that they had discussed this feature during development but later they scrapped to either preserve the design of the game like the wall running example above or due to time constraints.
