This is a guide on how to craft and upgrade weapons and other items in Cyberpunk 2077. Learn how to craft, what crafting components and crafting spacs are needed to craft, and where to find those items.
List of Contents
Crafting and upgrading items can be performed at vendors or in the Crafting tab of your main menu. You'll need an item's Crafting Spec and the necessary components to craft or upgrade it.
Crafting Specs can be looted, bought from vendors or acquired by leveling up your Skills. A Crafting Spec's color indicates the rarity of the item you're crafting.
Crafting Specs will show you which components are needed to craft or upgrade an item. They can also be looted, bought, or acquired from levelling up your character.
Common and Uncommon items can be crafted from the start of the game. But for Rare, Epic, and Legendary items, you need to acquire a specific perk in order to craft or upgrade the item. With that in mind, it's best to acquire craft-specific perks if you're going to invest in the game's crafting system.
|Spec Color||Rarity||Required Perk|
Crafted items will usually be of better quality than those found for sale and their stats are determined by V's Engineering Skill level.
Remember, only Iconic items can be upgraded. Increasing items' category, effectiveness and durability will depend on the level of the components used.
You can also upgrade any weapon in your possession with the help of components, which will increase your weapon's stats.

>>1 I think it means that iconic items are the only ones that can be raised from uncommon through to legendary. Other items can be upgraded, but the tier is locked.
> Remember, only Iconic items can be upgraded This is incorrect; non-iconic items can be upgraded.

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 https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/cyberpunk-2077-walkthrough-main-story-quest-list-main-missions-order-5077 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...
