Is Lightning Bolt Worth It?

Upgrade Priority (Ranking) B Rank Icon

Acquire if you have extra Perk Points

We recommend acquiring and leveling up Lightning Bolt if it works with the build you are running. Although, not quite as useful overall as some of the other Perks in this game, it certainly has its uses, and it won't hurt to have on your character. If you have already acquired all of the higher tier Perks for the build you are running, and you still have extra perk points, you can spend them on Lightning Bolt.

    • 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)

    • Once completed or doing missions for the Voodoo boys game flatlines (crash to desk top)
