There are a total of 5 weapon types in Cyberpunk 2077, each class offers you a different perspective on how to use them and each weapon will come in handy when you’re out strolling Night City.


Cyberware Weapons

Cyberware weapons are those that you can hack another character with or simply slash someone into pieces. These are body upgrades that remain with you as you play the game and will often come in handy when you’re trying to get a drop onto your enemies.

You can use your cyberware weapons like the Mantis Blades, Gorilla Arms, and Monowire to stealthily take down your enemies.


Melee Weapons

Melee weapons as the name suggests are weapons that you can find easily in the game. Just because they’re melee weapons does not mean that they’re any less efficient in taking out enemies. Weapons like the Thermal Katana and Sledgehammer can be the go-to weapons if you’re someone who likes hardcore hand to hand combat.

You can do so much with Melee weapons and can be a deadly assassin who leaves no clues behind with melee weapons.


Power Weapons


Power weapons are those that resemble the weapons that we have now, these contemporary weapons give a lot of bang which is a plus point in using them. You can use power weapons to ricochet bullets off of walls and onto your opponent for maximum carnage and added style bonus.

Power weapons are easy to use but they’re just a level up above your ordinary weapons. You can easily take out a squad with power weapons in Cyberpunk 2077.

Smart Weapons

Finally, the smart weapons are the futuristic forms of weapons that we expect Cyberpunk 2077 to have. These have bullets that can seak their targets and attack them even if they’re hiding behind a cover.
