October 21, 2022
We are in Night City, a dystopian American megalopolis controlled by corporations. The city, torn apart by gang wars fighting for dominance, relies on robotics for everyday services. There is a growing addiction to cosmetics, which results in violence, due to cybernetic modification in which a unique implant capable of giving immortality is sought. Given the criminality that is breaking out on the streets, all citizens have the opportunity to equip themselves with weapons of their own. In the following article, we have collected the best tips on how to make money in Cyberpunk 2077, looking through a series of tricks and secrets to apply with the game’s characters, that we have decided to share with you. As a reminder, Cyberpunk 2077 is a shoot-em-up video game published in 2010 by CD Projekt RED for Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5. The game is priced from 29.99€ upwards.
The game’s plot
Cyberpunk 2077 is a role-playing game where you play as V, a mercenary on a journey to find an implant that grants immortality. You have the opportunity to customise your character using a variety of upgradable weapons, hacking skills and upgradable implants. You can kill off your enemies to gain the reputation you need to access the best jobs. Through your hard work during the game, you have the opportunity to spend the money you earn on buying weapons and cyberware or customising your character. If you want to know the methods on how to make money in Cyberpunk 2077, keep reading this guide. There are three ways on how to make money quickly.
The first, which is also a piece of advice, is to collect everything. Make a huge collection of junk. Especially during the first run, you might make the mistake of activating the ‘Junk Dealer’ perk, which disassembles collected junk and converts it into materials for weapon upgrades. By making this decision you could earn between 500 and 1500 Eurodollars just from selling junk items.
Make money with the right weapons
The second tip for making virtually infinite Cyberpunk 2077 money is to sell the right weapons. Many players prefer to keep several weapons in their inventory that they can trade at any time. This strategy may be fine at the beginning of the game, but the further you go, the more selective you have to be. You can choose weapons that you eventually want to upgrade and keep them aside. However, we advise you not to keep them in your inventory forever, especially if you find a better version during the course of the game. At the beginning of the game, weapons are all worth between 50 and 80 Eurodollars, so the amount you can earn is minimal. Our advice is to combine the sale of equipment with the sale of junk items, so you can earn between 10,000 and 13,000 Eurodollars in the later stages of the game.
Make money with the Main Jobs
Point number three is based on the Main Jobs. These have a standard reward no matter how you do it. In the beginning, missions do not give you the chance to earn much, they mostly allow you to gain experience points and increase your character’s reputation. If you really want to earn money, you must complete the Fixer assignments by paying attention to the Briefing. You will be given assignments that involve stealing an item or eliminating a target. You will have to explore disreputable places where there is a lot of money circulating, or wealthy neighbourhoods where there is just as much. The amount of money that can be stolen from bodies, drawers or desks in offices during missions can exceed the mission reward itself, and then count the Fixer’s reward once the mission is completed. The quickest way to get money is to finish missions, but keep in mind, to get the bonus you have to do exactly what you are told by the Contractor.
A bonus tip is that gambling is unfortunately not a quick way to earn money. To win a gamble you must have money to cover the bet, skills to enhance stamina and attack, and finally the right cyberware for hand-to-hand encounters. To win bets at double the stakes you will need to spend a lot of money on upgrades. This is a risky alternative, but the moment you are facing your opponent you can save the game so that you can try again without losing extra money.
