Cyberpunk 2077

If you thinking about how to make money fast in Cyberpunk 2077? It’s important if you want all the best Cyberpunk 2077 cyberware and quickhacks. While you’ll find valuable weapons that money just can’t buy around Night City, it’s best to have some money lying around.

Whether you want some of the futuristic clothes, or need to part with some cash for a quest—of which there are many—money is important. Here you will find some tips on how to make money in the game.


How to make money in Cyberpunk 2077

Get the Extended Network Interface and Advanced Datamine perks

You will find passive perks in the Quickhacking tab, under the Intelligence attribute. Extended Network Interface perk so valuable is that it automatically highlights nearby access points. If you’ve invested points in V’s Intelligence, you’ll be able to jack in to these points to get Eurodollars, components, and even Cyberpunk 2077 quickhacks. This is where you find the Advanced Datamine perk comes in. At level one it increases the number of Eurodollars received from access points by 50 percent, rising to 100 percent at level two.

Some computers will also let you jack in to nab some cash. I suggest bumping your Intelligence attribute up to minimum of five points to get started, but some PCs and access points will need higher stats later on in the game.

Use quickhacks to steal

Making and getting Eurodollars from under people’s noses is easy at times and they won’t even bother about it but at times you will meet a guard or character if you steal from them, and this quickly results in them becoming angry and attacking you. But you don’t have to leave the money on the table, so I’ve been using the Reboot Optics quickhack to momentarily blind targets, take their cash and runaway.


Do the gigs and side jobs

Maybe you figure that out already, but it’s worth telling to the people who might overlook this feature. Gigs are contracts that are given by fixers. As you venture into various parts of the city various fixers will call you to present themselves. Making these jobs makes your Street Cred, which gets you more side jobs and makes you some decent buck in the process, so do the jobs.

Gigs and side jobs have their own sections in your journal, so you can keep track of them easily. Most of the gigs I’ve finished so far offer at least a few hundred Eurodollars, but as you work through more, your take will be well into the thousands. These missions range in length, but the rewards are good. You’ll see a mixture of quests where you recover an item and then give it at a drop point. You also have the option to sell these items, but I don’t support that. Then there are more complex missions that’ll take you across town, and they have better payout.


Scavenge for loot 

In an RPG, I like to look into every box, drawer, and even dead people just in case I find something worthy of my time. If you’re anything like me, you’ll be pleased to hear that this really pays off in Cyberpunk 2077. It’s definitely worth getting the Pack Mule perk from the Athletic tab to expand your carrying space picking up everything you see.

You will also find small bills of Eurodollars around Night City, take them off downed enemies, and even find them in rolled bundles on countertops. These stashes of Eurodollars may be on the small side, but it all adds up to a big chunk of change. Sometimes you may even find a safe that has a bigger wad of cash in it. Always scan (Tab) rooms to make searching them for money and items faster.

Ditch the trash 

If you like to pick it all and clean the rooms, you’ll soon run out of space in your inventory. There’s no point in collecting items just to leave them in your apartment and then forget about them. After finishing a job, head to a merchant to dump your unwanted items. Not only it gives you money but cleans your inventory as well, so don’t hoard.

You can always sell the stuff but if you got the Scrapper perk, which disassembles item automatically. Myself, I find the perk useful than selling junk, but if you need of cash, selling is the best option.
