There are many things to spend money on in Night City, whether it’s cyberware, new weapons, weapon modifications, clothing, or vehicles. You’ll also need to stack up some eddies to pay back Vik and even start some quests, including Rogue’s main storyline. If you’re broke and having a tough time collecting those Eurodollars, you might find this guide useful. Here are the best ways to make money in Cyberpunk 2077.
Best Ways to Make Money in Cyberpunk 2077
Here are the best ways to make money in Cyberpunk 2077:
- Loot items and sell them
- Complete Reported Crime activities
- Complete Side Gigs
- Crafting Items
- Hack Terminals and Vending Machines
Like in any looter game, there’s a lot of items to pick up around the world. Every enemy you kill will drop something, and you can also find tons of random junk lying around in unexpected locations. Unfortunately, your space is limited, and you can quickly become overburdened. There are drop boxes all around Night City you can visit to sell your junk and other items for some easy eddies.
Reported Crime activities
Reported Crime activities are one of the easiest ways to make a quick buck in Night City. Open up your map and look for the blue cube icon with the question mark. There should be many of these activities all over the map, so track them and head to the area to help out the local police department. Generally, these consist of going into a target location, taking out a couple of enemies, and looting some items. These usually net you somewhere around €$1,000 per completion, and they are easy to complete.
Take a break from the Main Jobs and Side Jobs for a moment, and tackle some Side Gigs. These are available in your journey and are an excellent way to earn some eddies and get some powerful rare items. They vary in difficulty and are usually quick. You’ll mostly need to go to a marked location and take down a specific enemy or group of targets.
You’ll have tons of common and uncommon items to sell, but you can make even more money if you dismantle them and use the materials to craft new items. The selling price for the crafted items is usually more than you would get if you were to sell the original items instead of dismantling them. Open up your inventory, select the item you want to dismantle, and hit Y (controller) or Z (PC) to dismantle them. This Cyberpunk 2077 money-making method only seems viable on uncommon items or lower. Rarer items tend to sell for more on their own.
Hack Terminals and Vending Machines
Whenever possible, try hacking terminals and getting the datamines for some easy Eurodollars. You can generally get eddies, components, and quickhacks. Every time you do this, you’ll get somewhere around 100 Eurodollars. You can also jack into vending machines to get the datamines for eddies and components. It’s not the biggest payday, but it’s easy and adds up over time because these terminals are everywhere.
