[Top 10] Cyberpunk 2077 Best Weapons And How To Get Them

Top 10 Cyberpunk 2077 best weapons in the whole game!
So many options so little time.

Sup choombas! When it comes to weapons they come in all different flavors. This game has it all to satisfy your need for guns. If you’re someone who loves to get up close and personal, you have a variety of shotguns and katanas to pick.

If you love the medium range you have SMGs and pistols. But if you’re more of a guy who loves to stand back and fire at your targets you have a huge pool of sniper rifles and assault rifles to choose from. So let’s not daddle around anymore and get into the list!

10. Mantis Blades

Their speed is incredible and you can slice up people in seconds and turn them into mincemeat. Not only that but you can also find a legendary variant for free in a footlocker in Wellsprings on a rooftop near Epistrophy: Wellsprings. They go well with a melee build. 

What makes Mantis Blades great:

  • Quick speed 
  • High DPS (if going a melee build).
