This is a guide to Street Cred, a Reputation system in Cyberpunk 2077. Learn how to raise Street Cred fast and the advantages of having a high Street Cred.

What is Street Cred?

A Character Progression System

Similar to the traditional character level, the higher your Street Cred is, the better your character becomes, improving in certain aspects of the game. It is separate from the player level and is increased through completing tasks like Side Jobs (Quests) and other side content. If you wanna be known in the streets you gotta hustle!

Unlocks Stronger Weapons at Vendors

The stronger weapons that are sold at weapon vendors will have a Street Cred requirement you need to reach before you can buy them. These weapons are usually much stronger than the others that are normally available. If you want the best guns, you'll have to be known as the best.

Unlocks Quests, Vendors, and Other Content

Having higher Street Cred will make your name more known around Night City. Being well known allows you to acquire new connections, giving you access to more missions and vendors. These vendors you unlock through having more Street Cred will be selling better gear the higher you go. Popularity has its perks!

How to Raise Street Cred

Complete Jobs

Completing Main and Side Jobs throughout the game will increase the player's Street Cred, allowing them to take on even more Jobs with higher rewards. Main Jobs and Side Jobs both give Streed Cred XP, but Side Jobs will give a greater amount. Keep completing Jobs around Night City and make your name a legend!

Complete Side Content

Completing side content will also give Street Cred when completed! One example is the NCPD tasks like Assault in Progress, where you will need to defeat a group of enemies. Once completed you are also given Streed Cred XP along with the other rewards. This is also one of the best ways to increase Street Cred as there are a ton of them that can be found all over Night City.

Defeating Enemies

Even just plain old fighting will reward you with Street Cred XP. Find baddies to beat, take em out, and spread your name around Night City.

    • I'd really like to see a flowchart with all the Main Quests, Side Quests, and Gigs that exist so we can easily see what you need to do before unlocking XYZ quest (kind of like they did here except with everything, not just the Main ones)

    • Getting splotches and phantom trees and countryside images while out in the Badlands or other areas. Also occurs sporadically in any indoors... these ghost images come and go... started from day 1...
