This is a guide on how to manage your inventory in Cyberpunk 2077. Read on to learn more about which weapons and clothing should you keep in the game.

Managing Your Inventory

Cyberpunk 2077 will have you looting for weapons, clothes, and other items all over Night City. Unfortunately, you can't carry all of them as your character has a storage limit. Below are some simple tips on how to manage your inventory:

Stash Items

Store your items in V's apartment or in any owned vehicle. For the former, go to V's apartment then enter the armory. Open the Stash to store any items that you are yet to use. You can also stash your stuff in the trunk of your car. Your vehicle can be a mobile inventory as you can summon your car from anywhere to pick up or store your belongings.

How to Store Items

Sell Unwanted Items

If you feel like you have too many unwanted items in your inventory, sell them to a vendor or at a Drop Point. These are scattered all over Night City so you never have to worry about finding one.

Dismantle Items

Dismantling your items for crafting materials can also reduce your storage. To do this, go to your Inventory and highlight the item that you wish to dismantle. Then, hold the required button and this will break down the item into crafting materials.

Equip Mods

Some clothes have mods with them that increases your carrying capacity, as well as cyberware implants that you can purchase from a Ripperdoc. You can also unlock perks that gives you more free space to carry items such as the Pack Mule.

Which Weapons to Keep?

You may find yourself carrying too much weapons sometimes, and once you reach V's storage limit, it may be overwhelming to choose which ones to keep.

By Damage Type

It's important to keep weapons of each damage type so you can switch between them when you are faced with enemies weak to a certain element.

Below are damage types available in some weapons:

Which Clothing to Keep?

For clothing, it's okay to hold a lot of it, since clothes are very lightweight. The basic principle is just keep the ones that can give you better protection.
