How to Open Closed & Locked Doors in Cyberpunk 2077?


You can unlock locked and closed doors during quests or while exploring by performing one of these actions:

  • Using your Technical Ability to open or disarm the lock
  • With an access keycard
  • With the local network

When you encounter a closed door, you will see how many points of an attribute you need to open it up. If you have less points than required, it will be shown in red and if you have the necessary amount, you will see it in blue. Then follow the prompt on the screen to perform the action and that’s how to unlock doors in Cyberpunk 2077. Some doors may need pure force to open while for some, you will need to disarm the lock only. If you are lucky, you will get both options of Force Open or Technical Ability.


If you see the words Authorization Not Found, you need an access keycard to enter an area closed off by a door. Where to find the access card? Make sure to check the bodies of the enemies you have taken down or search for it on any tables or surfaces nearby. You will find it and get the authorization to enter.

Lastly, you can use the local network by locating a terminal and opening the door from there. Go to the Local Network tab and unlock doors in Cyberpunk 2077.
