Cyberpunk 2077 Difficulty Settings

Which Difficulty Setting Are You Playing On?

Easy Difficulty

Easy Mode is the equivalent of going on a nice cruise. This is the perfect choice for players who want to be more immersed in the story and not have to worry so much about combat and other game mechanics.

Normal Difficulty

Normal Mode will let you in on a breezy ride throughout the game. Enemy Battles won't take their toll on you but expect opponents in Boss Battles to be quite formidable.

Hard Difficulty

Hard Mode will tickle your brain just about right. Expect considerable challenge in combat and a demand for wise use of your arsenal.

Very Hard Difficulty

Very Hard Mode is where you have to take every thing into account—from character development to the use of your items—and take them seriously to make it in Night City. You're going to be in for a serious challenge.

How to Change Difficulty

Change it in Gameplay Settings

Do not worry about choosing your difficulty setting at the start of a new game, as you can change it whenever you please. To do so, you will need to open up the Pause Menu and go to settings. Once in the settings menu, select the Gameplay Settings tab. The first option in the accessibility options is the difficulty. You can freely choose whatever difficulty you wish to play on, allowing you to adjust whenever you feel like it.

    • 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?
