The Cyberpunk 2077 Weapons Guide will give you all the info you need on every weapon in game.  The world of cyberpunk is vast and so you will need a large array of firearms to keep you safe in the Night City.

All weapons are fully customizable and come in lots of variations.  Long range weapons usually pistols, rifle and shotguns  can be found as either a street or tech weapon and can be used for combat at all ranges.  Melee weapons however offer an up close and personal option with high damage.

Weapons offer upgrades called modules which can alter the weapon making it either a smart, tech or power weapon, each with there own unique benefits. 

The weapons are designed to work alongside the different play styles in game, although you can mix and match them, meaning if you play a tech character a tech pistol would be a good choice but you dont have to use one you can opt for a smart pistol if you prefer.

Weapon Abilities

Many weapons have there own unique abilities to them that make them unique.  This includes handguns that fire bullets and the longer you hold the fire button the faster the bullets shoot dealing more damage over time.
