How to Get Missable Weapons

Purchase Missed Weapons from the Dogtown Black Market

Players who own the Phantom Liberty DLC are in luck. By visiting the special Black Market merchant found in Dogtown, they will be able to purchase Iconic Weapons and Iconic Weapon Specs they missed while out questing in Night City.

The Black Market's inventory includes Iconic Weapons that were only added in Update 2.0, allowing players with existing saves to still get those weapons despite having already completed the main story.

What is The Black Market in Dogtown?

Explore All Mission Areas Before Leaving

Cyberpunk 2077 will feature key locations throughout Night City that you can only visit once and often only during the duration of a certain quest. In order to avoid missing some of the more powerful Iconic Weapons in the game, make sure to always explore each quest location thoroughly before you leave.

Since the only repeatable quests are the ending quests of Act 3, players who have no access to the Phantom Liberty DLC will need to replay the game if they want to try their hand at getting an iconic weapon they missed while playing.

Pay Attention to Major Quest Decisions

Certain quest decisions will have far-reaching consequences in Cyberpunk 2077. Whether it be killing an NPC during a certain quest, or keeping them alive and allowing them to re-appear later on in the story, do keep in mind that these quest decisions can gate you from getting some of the Iconic Weapons in the game.
