Night City is a world filled with Criminals and you will surely have to beat up a lot of people. Since you will end up in many fights, knowing how to dodge in Cyberpunk 2077 is extremely important. If you simply enter battles without dodging, you will be dealt a lot more damage and end up dying sooner. Dodging gives you a window of opportunity to launch a counterattack as well. So, to make your close-ranged combat skills better, find out how to dodge attacks easily.
How to Dodge Attacks in Cyberpunk 2077?
- PlayStation/Xbox players can dodge attacks by double tapping Circle/B respectively.
- PC players can double tap any WASD (movement) key to dodge.
When you time it correctly, you will dodge in your preferred direction. During the time when your enemy is vulnerable, you can immediately attack them and drain their health.
Upon dodging, V will use up some stamina and then get a chance to launch a counterattack. Do note that if the stamina goes to zero, your blocking stance is going to break.
Can you Rebind the Dodge Key?
Now, here’s the thing. Many players do not prefer to have the Double Tap feature. If you want to know how to disable double tap to dodge in Cyberpunk 2077, follow the process we’ve mentioned in the linked guide. This will help you override the default mechanism because the game doesn’t let you rebind the dodge key directly. Do it at your own risk, though, because it changes the game files.
The reason why the double tap option is not preferred for most is because you could totally dodge in this RPG by mistake leading to other consequences. You could be surrounded by enemies and you may dodge right into an opponent’s clutches. Or you could even dodge into an NPC who gets angry and starts attacking you immediately. Anything can happen in Night City so it’s best to not get into scuffles or achieve a wanted level from the NCPD due to this mechanism.
