We’ve been getting more and more information about Cyberpunk 2077 ever since E3 but not a lot of that seems to spoil much about the game and same goes with this bit of info.
In an interview with GamingBolt, quest director Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz spoke briefly about the type of weapons in the game. He started off by talking about weapon customizability by saying, “You can customize the weapons in a number of ways, you can attach scopes, you can attach silencers, things like those. It’s based, of course, on a specific weapon and how many slots for improvements they have. “
He further talked about the weapon variety available in the game. “As for how many types of weapons we have— I remember just a number of them. But we have quite many of them. So there are melee weapons: katana, hammer, knife, Nanowire — which is basically these wires that you can use to fight. But you can also use them if you’re a Net Runner to hack remotely into people or devices. On top of that we have a number of ranged weapons: we have heavy guns, light guns, light machine guns, revolvers, sniper rifles.”
The emphasis on freedom of choice and variety is constantly being stressed because they really want players to have their own adventure. If you want to use a knife, or a hammer or even if you want to be a cool cyberpunk samurai, you can do it.
I just hope there’s some sort of Neon Katana and maybe a Lightsaber that can be used to slice people because that sounds like a lot of fun.
Cyberpunk 2077 releases on 16th April 2020 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
