Tips and Tricks to Get Started in Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 can seem overwhelming when players first start it. We suggest not thinking too hard about the background choices and stats. Instead, it’s easier to go with what sounds good for a first playthrough, create a character that looks sensational, and jump into the opening missions. It’s easy to start a new game with a new background to see everything the game has to offer later.

With the 2.0 update, there are now more weapons than ever for players to get to grips with and upgrade their stats toward. We love specializing because it allows us to focus on a weapon type and master it over the course of the story. By the time someone has been through the game two or three times like this, they’ll have seen what all the stats do and how they interact with every weapon.

As can be seen below, there’s an enormous amount of side content in Cyberpunk 2077. It’s almost too much based on the game world’s size. However, if players work through every mission at their own pace, they’ll find that it’s easy to get through everything that fills up the journal quickly. Missions populate organically and stick around forever, so it’s easy to return and pick them up at any point.

Finally, Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty doesn’t unlock until towards the end of Act 2 of the base game. Players need to invest themselves fully if they want to play the latest content, so it’s worth starting a new game and going through the flow of the story to see everything that Night City has to offer at a pace that suits the player. Rushing won’t make for a good gameplay experience.
