Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths

This is a fun build centered around neutralizing enemies through walls, which is what the Tech Weapons are known for. Upload the Ping quickhack and start shooting at the revealed enemies; they won't know what hit them!

Weaknesses

To use this build effectively, you have to take the time to apply Ping every now and then. The Submachine Gun also runs out of ammo really quickly, so we highly suggest a backup Assault Rifle for when things get overwhelming.

Attribute Progression

Build Attributes
Lv. Body Reflex Tech Intel Cool
1 3 6 3 4 6
10 3 9 9 4 6
50 12 20 15 4 20
60 17 20 20 4 20

The max level is only up until 50 in the base game. Purchase Phantom Liberty to reach level 60.

At the start, focus on putting points in Reflexes and Cool. The former increases Submachine Gun effectiveness and helps with mobility while the latter helps with Sniper Rifle effectiveness.

Gradually put in points into Technical Ability to quickly access Bolt and its related perks. This attribute powers you up through Cyberware stat modifiers and it also increases the damage and effectiveness of your Tech Weapons.

Then, put points into Body to access Adrenaline Rush and its related perks. This will increase your survivabiliy while also adding a 10% damage boost while it's active.

Only 4 points are needed in the Intelligence attribute since the Ping quickhack is all you need. Equip perks that help your RAM recovery rate and decrease your traceability.

This is the full list of perks that you can get if you achieve the maximum level 60 with the Phantom Liberty DLC. Optional perks are also listed in their own section in case you have not purchased the DLC.

Priority Main Skill Branch Skill
1st Vulnerability Analytics Relic Icon Vulnerability Analytics Machine Learning Relic Icon Machine Learning
2nd Emergency Cloaking Relic Icon Emergency Cloaking Sensory Protocol Relic Icon Sensory Protocol
3rd Jailbreak Relic Icon Jailbreak Launch Capacity Override Relic Icon Launch Capacity Override

As soon as you unlock the Relic Skill tree, invest points into Vulnerability Analytics then branch off to Machine Learning. Targetting an exposed vulnerability spot will quickly neutralize an enemy.

Then, priortize Emergency Cloaking to Sensory Protocol. This is when things get too rough and you need a quick getaway.

We recommend Jailbreak last. The Projectile Launch System will only act as a backup or support in your gunfights, so it's more than enough as it is.

Relic Skill Tree Available in the DLC

Please take note that the Phantom Liberty expansion is needed to access the Relic Skill Tree.

Tech Weapons Build Best Quickhacks

Ping

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty - Ping Control Quickhack Type / Stats
Covert Quickhack
RAM Requirement: 7
Upload Time: 1sec
Duration Time: 18.4sec
Effects
▸Untraceable
▸Reveals enemies and devices connected to the local network.
▸+25% lock-on speed with Smart Weapons against Pinged enemies.
▸Highlights devices and allows you to quickhack them through walls.

Ping lets you locate all enemies around the area, which is integral to this build. This will allow you to spot your targets even before initiating a fight so you can identify the easiest targets to pick and locate a safe place to hide.

How to Get Ping Quickhack

How to Play the Tech Weapons Build

Use the Ping Quickhack to Locate Enemies

Before doing anything else, hide behind a wall and use Ping on an enemy or a nearby device. This will show you where all of them are within the area. Still behind covers, you can start using your Tech Weapons to shoot at the highlighted enemies.

Target a Netrunner Before They Upload Quickhacks

During the fight, if a Netrunner is present, focus your attention on them before their quickhacks take hold. They're not the only ones that can hide behind walls!

Switch to Another Gun When In Trouble

Eventually, enemies will pinpoint your location and will start charging you in numbers. The Raiju Submachine Gun can run out of ammo pretty quickly; we recommend a backup Assault Rifle, like the Psalm 11:6 or the Umbra X-MOD2 should something like this happen.
