How to Beat Buck

Block or Counter

Cyberpunk 2077 Block or counter

Buck's attacks are strong but they aren't fast. Memorize his attack patterns and try to counter by pressing the block button right before an attack hits to make this fight a breeze.

Use Gorilla Arms

Cyberpunk 2077 Use Gorilla Arms

If you're already at 20 Street Cred, you can purchase Gorilla Arms from ripperdocs to enhance your attacks. These make the fight easier even if you only have 3 points on the Body attribute.

Use Kerenzikov

Cyberpunk 2077 Use Kerenzikov

Once you have 12 or higher points on Reflexes, you can equip the Kerenzikov to slow down time while dodging and blocking at the same time. This allows you to land free hits on Buck.
