While the huge number of weapons to be found across Night City means you’ll frequently be switching out your inventory, there are some special ones that are worth holding onto. Here’s how to upgrade iconic weapons in Cyberpunk 2077 so you can keep improving these special guns and blades throughout your playthrough.
How to Upgrade Iconic Weapons In Cyberpunk 2077
Upgrading iconic weapons is done from the “Upgrades” section of the “Crafting” menu tab in the same way you would any other weapon in the game. Simply select the weapon you’re wanting to upgrade from the left-hand side and then click the upgrade button on the bottom right.
Of course, you’ll need to have the necessary parts to do so, which often requires “epic crafting components” or just a lot of more common resources.
The more you upgrade, the more you’re going to need, so if you’re set on upgrading your iconic weapons then always make sure you’re looting as much as possible when you’re out on missions and/or grinding other activities in the game.
Weapons, gear, and junk can all be disassembled for parts, and you should make a habit of doing so regularly to keep stocking up.
Further, you should certainly invest in the crafting perk tree, which offers a bunch of really useful perks that’ll help you continually upgrade your iconic weapons. This includes perks that reduce the cost of upgrading and others that offer you more parts whenever you disassemble something.
It’s also worth noting that the more times you perform an action in Cyberpunk 2077, the better V will become at it.
