Cyberpsycho Sighting: Phantom of Night City Choices and Best Choice

Brute Force vs. Tactical Approach

Brute Force

Take your best melee and ranged weapons and attack the boss. Once he retreats, eliminate all other threats first and then attack the boss head on.

Tactical Approach

Use a combination of grenades and rifles (sniper or assault) to take out all other opponents. Once its just the boss, use quickhacks, grenades and shotguns to defeat him.

Best Choice

It's best to go the tactical approach since there are a lot of enemies here. If you go brute force, there is a high chance to be attacked from all directions. Quickhacks will disable the boss for a bit while grenades and shotguns will do major damage to him.

Boss Tips and Strategies

Use Shotguns and Sniper Rifles

For the boss, he is very susceptible to being knocked back by shotguns so use that to your advantage. Power shotguns work well here. For the opponents in the second area, they can kill the boss which will displease Regina. So, snipe them one at a time to help you focus on knocking out the boss.

Use High Powered Grenades

The boss is a bit tough to bring down but if you manage to have the Gash Antipersonnel Grenade, a grenade that activates 21 lasers to deal damage in an area, it can easily take down 15-20% of its health.

Obtainable Items

This list contains only significant items and those which have a high chance of appearing.

Item How to Get

    • In the crafting screen, would love to see a comparison between what I'm currently equipped with vs what I've selected to craft. In the Inventory screen, I have no idea where any extra weight is without going into each category (weapons, clothes, etc). Please add some sort of weight indicator next to each category so I know exactly where I seem to be overloaded. In the Map, please mark completed items (assault in progress, access points), grey out the icons or something similar?

      Ran into the same problem with Iris not wanting to get in the van (in v1.31) but coerced her into doing it by backing the van up into her. She'll jump out of the way if you try to ram her, but backing up and bumping her teleports her to the side of the van, where she'll get in.
