You'll be doing a lot of crime in Night City, so you'll need to learn how to escape the police in Cyberpunk 2077. Read on to learn more about different ways to evade the police.
To lose the police, move away from the crime scene and lay low for a while. You can do this faster by riding a vehicle and driving as far as you can from the police's presence. It's the oldest trick in the book, but it sure is effective.
Players can also run inside the nearest store to hide from the police. This will instantly wipe away your wanted levels.
As of Patch 1.5, there's another way to lose the cops when you're still wanted but can't find a getaway vehicle or store nearby. You can try to find a hiding spot where the police can't find you. Lie low until you're out of combat and then avoid getting seen for around 45 seconds to completely lose your wanted levels.
Any illegal activity such as theft or attacking civilians will result in the Night City Police Department (NCPD) placing a bounty on you. The police will send a patrol to the crime scene, and the force of their response will depend on how much heat you're under.
Cyberpunk 2077 has a Wanted System that measures how much you are wanted by the NCPD based on the illegal activities you have committed. You can see it displayed as blue stars on the upper right side of the screen, beside the minimap. The more stars you have, the tougher the police force will pursue you.
The following is a list of illegal activities that will cause the NCPD to spawn and attack you. Committing any of these will start you with one or two stars and will further increase the more crimes you perpetrate:
