Nomad Lifepath Basic Information

Nomad Backstory

Nomad Lifepath Top.png

In the Nomad Lifepath, your character grew up in a Nomad tribe in the wilderness of the Badlands. Due to the harsh conditions living out in the Badlands, the Nomad tribes value bonds stronger than blood to work together and survive. Even with your familial bonds, you left your tribe and headed to Night City.

Strengths and Weaknesses

As the Nomad is someone from the Badlands, they will have the knowledge of the world outside of Night City. But this also means knowledge of Night City is going to be limited. And when it comes to relationships, being an outsider you will no or few connections right away and will have difficulty having people trust you as an outsider. On the flip side, this means you won't have enemies either.

With not much information on the story at the moment, we can speculate that the Nomad will have choices based on him being an outsider to Night City. You will need to decide who your friends are and maybe even find a new family in Night City.

We recommend this Lifepath for those playing Cyberpunk 2077 for the first time. The Nomad will be starting as an outsider to Night City, without any roots in the city, your character will be experiencing things for the first time, just like you will be. This will give you a clean slate perfect for your first experience of Night City.

    • In the crafting screen, would love to see a comparison between what I'm currently equipped with vs what I've selected to craft. In the Inventory screen, I have no idea where any extra weight is without going into each category (weapons, clothes, etc). Please add some sort of weight indicator next to each category so I know exactly where I seem to be overloaded. In the Map, please mark completed items (assault in progress, access points), grey out the icons or something similar?

    • Game/story stopping ....when I get in the car with the police detective dude to go save his nephew at the farm......every time he rams the gate of the farm to get in, with his car . The car just explodes and I die .....every time .....can't get any further in the story .......I've tried getting out the car , restarting ......every time ....he rams the gate , car goes boom ......totally a show stopper :-(
