In the 2.0 update of Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, several changes have been made to quickhacks, enabling players to use the best quickhacks more efficiently. Learn which Quickhacks are most effective for each situation, and what Quickhacks you should invest in.
|Best Cyberware in Update 2.0|
|Best Weapons||Best Armor|
|Best Quickhacks||Best Vehicles|
|Contagion||Duration: 8.5 sec sec
Upload Time: 1 sec
Cooldown: 30 sec
・Deals low damage that applies Poison to the target. Spreads to 2 targets within an 8-meter radius. Effective against closely grouped targets.
・Poison lasts significantly longer.
・Each subsequent target receives 30% more damage from Contagion.
・Passive While Equipped: All quickhacks capable of spreading to multiple targets can jump 1 additional time(s).
Contagion can deal damage and spread to other enemies after the initial target dies from it. This is a great quickhack to use when dealing with a group of enemies, as it has a chance to poison others when used.
|Cripple Movement||Duration: 13.5 sec sec
Upload Time: 5 sec
Cooldown: 0 sec
・Disables the target's ability to move from their current position.
・Spreads to the nearest enemy within 8 meters.
・Affected enemies are also unable to attack.
・Passive while equipped: Enemies under the effect of quickhack cannot sprint.
Cripple Movement has been patched in the 2.0 update, making it one of the best quickhacks to use during combat. This quickhack can help you handicap your enemies and allows you to land free hits against them with your melee weapons.
|Short Circuit||Duration: 6.8 sec sec
Upload Time: 1 sec
Cooldown: 10 sec
・Deals moderate damage to the target. Very effective against drones, mechs, robots, and targets with a Weakspot.
・Applies an EMP effect to the target for 4 sec.
・Deals 30% extra damage to enemies below a High threat level.
・Passive While Equipped: Crit Hits with any weapon apply this quickhack's uncommon effect.
This Quickhack costs little RAM, so you're generally limited only by its cooltime. Depending on your Perks and Intelligence stat, this quickhack can defeat most enemies in one blow. Combining this with Synapse Burnout will be good, too. Its Legendary variant's passive is situational but helpful in taking down enemies hit by crits.
|Overheat||Duration: 8.5 sec sec
Upload Time: 3 sec
Cooldown: 15 sec
・Applies Burn to the target, dealing high damage over time. Less effective against drones, mechs, and robots.
・Targets affected by Burn from Overheat are unable to perform actions.
・Burn from Overheat lasts significantly longer. (13.35 sec)
・Targets affected by Burn from Overheat are unable to use cyberware abilities.
Overheat is a great early quickhack to use for distracting enemies, reducing their armor, and inflicting damage upon application. This can also spread to other enemies after you use Contagion if you have the Hack Queue perk active.
The 2.0 update introduced several new perks that can help you get better at using quickhacks. These new perks will help you efficiently use quickhacks and make them more powerful, especially if you're doing a netrunner build.
The 2.0 update also rebalanced the RAM costs of all existing quickhacks. This adjustment can help you use quickhacks more efficiently and encourages strategic utilization of quickhacks during combat.
