Even though it's been out since 2020, there are still many hidden secrets and easter eggs to be found in Cyberpunk 2077. Here, you'll learn what these secrets are, how to find them, and even a cameo from people like Hideo Kojima!

List of Secrets and Easter Eggs

Ciri from The Witcher 3 Cameo

This cameo is available in The Corpo-Rat Main Quest, so you'll need to select the Corpo Lifepath to find this one.

As part of an optional Objective, the player can go to their own office to check a report. If they choose to open the drawer, they'll find a copy of a magazine advertising The Witcher 3, with an image of Ciri on the cover. Talk about retro gaming!

Hideo Kojima Cameo

After entering Konpeki Plaza in The Heist Main Quest, you'll have the option to go to the bar near the lobby or go directly to your room. Make sure you choose to go to the bar, and you'll be in for a treat!

A man suspiciously resembling Hideo Kojima, director of Metal Gear Solid and Death Stranding, can be found regaling a crowd of people with discussions of conveying emotion through art. He seems to have aged quite well in 2077.

Officially Confirmed

If you were curious if this character is really Hideo Kojima, or if the rumors are unfounded, simply take a look at the Credits – Hideo Kojima's Special Appearance leaves no doubt.

GLaDOS from Portal Reference

The psychotic AI from Portal, GLaDOS, makes an appearance as a divergent Delamain during two sidequests, in both Epistrophy: Coastview and Don't Lose Your Mind.

Although no image of GLaDOS's body appears, the voice is enough to give it away, and references to cake do nothing to hide the bot's identity.

GTA San Andreas Reference

Cyberpunk 2077 GTA SA Cameo

The cameo location is east of the trailer park fast travel point in the Badlands. Near the tunnel with train tracks, you can find two bodies and a wrecked motorcycle.

From one of the bodies you can loot a shard with the archived conversation of JC and Little Smoke.
What gave away the cameo was the final line in the conversation saying 'all you had to do was follow the damn train, JC!'

Although it is not directly implied, we can interpret that the names JC and Little Smoke were taken by reversing the names of CJ and Big Smoke.
The final line is also what Big Smoke says to CJ when you fail the Train Mission in GTA San Andreas.

Fallout Reference

Cyberpunk 2077 Fallout Cameo

Out in the Badlands, you can come across a bunch of dead people surrounding what looks like a make-believe "Vault 101". This may be a reference to the Fallout series.

Blade Runner Reference

Cyberpunk 2077 Blade Runner Cameo

Atop the Avocet Hotel, in Vista Del Rey, you can find a dead man posing, in the same way the replicant Roy Batty did in "Blade Runner". Just like Roy, he's also looking over the rest of Night City, wondering whether all those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Demolition Man Reference

Cyberpunk 2077 Demolition Man Cameo

In V's bathroom, you'll see what appears to be three seashells. This is a reference to the 1993 Sylvester Stallone movie "Demolition Man".

CD Projekt Red Dev Room

Cyberpunk 2077 Dev Room

At end of Kabuki round market (to the left of the gun shop there whose owner has a scav problem), you will find a garage door with a keycode. Enter in the code "605185" and you'll find yourself in a small room with a couch and large tv screen.

Sit on the couch, and Johnny will start playing a tune as the pictures of CP2077's dev team appear on the screen.

Edgerunners Columbarium Epitaphs

After Update 2.0, players can visit the Columbarium to find epitaphs dedicated to Lucy's squad in the Edgerunners anime. Based on the wording of the epitaphs, it would seem that it was Lucy herself who wrote and left these behind.

Doom Arcade Machine

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty - Doom Gameplay

Update 2.0 also features a new hidden arcade machine in the Biotechnica Flats of the Badlands. Players can boot up the dusty machine to play a Doom-style shooter called Arasaka Tower 3D that features Johnny Silverhand gunning down Arasaka's goon squads.

out back of the Aldecaldos' first camp there's a train underpass. in the opening you can find a wrecked motorcycle and two corpses, one with a shard referencing a Little Smoke and a JC, with Little Smoke berating JC that all he had to do was follow the train.
