All Cheats and Tips
How to Scan Environments
Make sure you take advantage of your ability to scan the environment in CyberPunk 2077 in order to gather data on nearby objects and NPCs, spot and tag hostiles, and view hackable objects which can be used to influence the wider environment. You are not limited in the number of times you can activate your character’s scanning mode, the only time you will not be able to use it is during some scripted moments where the game disables it.
It is crucial that you scan the environment to analyze your surroundings whenever you need to traverse through enemy territory undetected as it will enable you to tag enemies so you can track their movement patterns. It also enables you to reveal hidden loot and hackable items. Another good time to scan the environment is when you are faced with crowded areas as doing so can help you to spot items or objects.
To Scan the environment on PC you simply have to press the Tab key on your keyboard. In PlayStation 4 you press and hold L1 on your controller and on Xbox One you press and hold LB.
Where to Find Joytoys (Prostitutes)
In CyberPunk 2077 it is possible to have sex with prostitutes, called Joytoys in the game. You do not have to be of a specific gender to use Joytoys. The act itself serves no real purpose and you will be charged a fee for their service.
Joytoys in CyberPunk 2077 is bisexual so it doesn’t matter what gender you choose for V. Joytoys charge 100 Eurodollars per session and can be found in the Japantown district of Night City. You can find their locations by looking at the map where they are marked with a white icon that resembles a pair of lips.
However, you will not be able to access Joytoys when you begin the game as you are stuck in the Watson district which is under lockdown. It will not be until you have played the main story missions that you are able to reach the Japantown district of Night City in Act 2. Using Joytoys does not count as romance options.
How to Change your Appearance
In CyberPunk 2077 you have almost complete control over how your character looks, you are able to choose amongst other things your gender, height, hair color, and facial features. It is though important that you think carefully about how you want your character to look as you will be unable to change how they look once you have set their appearance at the start of the game.
There are though ways in which you can slightly alter the appearance of your character and these revolve around the clothes they wear which include pants, shirts, jackets, shoes, and various headgear which you can get from various shops all around Night City which you will easily be able to locate by looking at the map.

How to Remove Virus from Chip
During the Pickup mission, there is an optional objective which is to remove a virus from a chip, this is accomplished by completing a mini-game. In order to do so, you first need to open your game menu and scroll to your Journal where you then select the ‘Shards’tab followed by ‘Militech Datashard’. When you now select the ‘Crack Security’ option you will open up a breaching mini-game menu which you have precisely 60 seconds to complete.
What you basically have to do in order to complete the mini-game is select the sequences on the ‘Code Matrix’ menu that correspond to ‘Sequence Required To Upload’. When you manage to get the right combination it will light up in blue on the right-hand side – BD BD FF 55 1C E9. The easiest way in which to do it is to match the bottom numbers first by pushing the top ones over so that two of the sequences match on both the bottom and top. In this case to get the perfect hack you need to push the sequence 55 over so they match and combine the neutralize and copy Malware sequences into one.
How to Collect Bounties
Completing the Bounty missions that are scattered throughout Night City will enable you to earn money when you complete them. Bounty missions are generally not difficult and usually involve locating a target which the game directs you towards and then either subduing or killing them.
When you successfully complete a Bounty mission the reward will automatically appear in your inventory straight away, there is no association you need to check in with. However, complications can arise with Bounty missions when there are any enemies nearby as these will have to be defeated before you receive the reward. It is therefore advised that you consider what enemies you are likely to encounter to make sure the bounty is worthwhile before you tackle it.
How to get Easy Money
If you prioritize the access point skills first in CyberPunk 2077 you will be able to get easy money. In order to do this, you need to unlock the Advanced Datamine upgrades in the Intelligence attribute under the Breach Protocol tab. Being able to hack access points is, without doubt, the easiest way to make the Eurodollars you need to get the expensive augmentations at a Ripperdoc.
Make it your first priority to scan the environment whenever you enter a new area in order to see if it reveals anything useful you can loot, such as weapons, gear, and health items. It is worthwhile picking these items up even if you have no need for them as you can either sell them at the vending machines which can be found scattered throughout the map or alternately disassemble it for parts that can then be used when you craft.
Unlock Alternate Routes
Resist the temptation of rushing through CyberPunk 2077 by just sticking to the core questline. You will find it a lot more beneficial if you unlock the special dialogues to develop side stories as they will allow you to level up and upgrade your skills so that you meet the requirements in the main mission to hack devices and open doors in order to unlock alternate routes and more opportunities.
How to Holster your Weapon
CyberPunk 2077 never tells you how to holster your weapon which is something you need to do to prevent causing panic when you enter certain areas of the game. Also, walking around with a drawn gun and continually pointing it at people will eventually count as a crime if you keep doing it.
In order to put your gun away in its holster and prevent starting trouble you simply have to double-tap the ALT key on your keyboard, this is the same key you use to cycle between weapons (Y button on your PlayStation 4 Controller and the Triangle button on the Xbox One controller). It is important however that they are two proper taps in quick succession otherwise you will end up cycling weapons instead of holstering your gun.
How to Free Brick
In Act 1 of CyberPunk 2077’s fourth quest – The Pickup, you will be given a possible objective to free Brick from his cell, Brick is the leader of the Maelstrom gang in Night City. Provided Brick has survived in the mission, the side-mission to free Brick will become available as you complete the main task of escaping the All Foods Plant and reach the Escape. There are two ways in which you can free Brick if you decide to take on the objective.
One way to free Brick is to hack the keypad on his cell using your tech skills. Select Remote Deactivation from the quick hack menu which costs 2 RAM. Once inside the cell you need to hack the mine under his chair using the Remote Disarm hack which also costs 2 RAM.
The alternate way in which to free Brick from his cell is to find the code to his cell which is 9691 on a neaby laptop and also in the same room find the detonator and use it to disarm the mine. When Brick has been freed from his cell he will promise to help you next time you meet.
