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 is one of the main ways to get the most powerful weapon and items available in the game. Further, there are some exclusive items that can only be acquired via Crafting.
Besides weapons and consumable items, you can also craft quickhacks and different kinds of armor. Just access your Crafting menu and you will be on your way to crafting or upgrading the best items in the game!
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 and the upgrade menu 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|
Unlike most weapons, Iconic Weapons have a special bonus if acquired. You automatically gain its Crafting Spec and it will always be a rarity higher than the original weapon (unless the Iconic Weapon is acquired at Legendary rating).
Crafted items will usually be of better quality than those found for sale and their stats are determined by V's Engineering Skill level.
All items can be upgraded but will often depend on the state of the item you get them at. For this reason, it is highly advised to upgrade weapons, items, or armor when they are at Epic or Legendary rating to ensure the best benefits.
If the perks Field Technician and 200% Efficiency, this would boost the damage and armor rating respectively of the items you craft making them even more powerful.

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?
Ran into the same problem with Iris not wanting to get in the van (in v1.31) but coerced her into doing it by backing the van up into her. She'll jump out of the way if you try to ram her, but backing up and bumping her teleports her to the side of the van, where she'll get in.
