This is a guide to creating a Tech Weapons build in Cyberpunk 2077. Check here for details about the build, what attributes to level up, which perks to choose, and what equipment to use.

How to Use the Tech Weapons Build

The Tech Weapons build will make any Tech weapon a devastating high-tech firearm. This build recommends that you prioritize your Technical Ability and Reflexes attributes.

Best Attributes for Tech Weapons Build

Technical Ability

Technical Ability is the core of this build. Most of the Engineering perks directly benefit the use of Tech weapons. Also, a higher Technical Ability will allow you to craft stronger weapons to add to your arsenal.

Technical Ability represents your technical know-how. It allows you to unlock doors and use Tech weapons. Each increase in level will increase your Armor by 5%.

Reflexes

Acquiring a few Reflex perks will help increase the damage you inflict whenever you use a Tech weapon. You can invest into Reflexes later on, as increasing your Technical Ability should be your top priority in this build.

Reflexes determine your maneuverability. In addition to increasing your overall movement speed, each level in Reflexes will:
- Increase your passive Evasion from enemy attacks by 1%
- Increase Crit Chance by 1%
- Increase damage from Mantis Blades by 3

    • 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?

    • If I fail or cancel out of an access point, the mini-game will not load up, you'll just get the jack in/Jack out animations but the mini-game will no longer appear.
