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 quests and other side content. If you wanna be known in the streets, you gotta hustle!

What Does Street Cred Do?

Unlocks Stronger Weapons at Vendors

Streed Cred Locked Weapons

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!

    • 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?
