Cyberpunk 2077 is the latest open-world RPG from CD Projekt Red, and is easily one of the most highly anticipated video game releases of the year. It takes place in the bustling metropolis of Night City, and players take control of V, a mercenary who takes on odd jobs and dangerous tasks in an effort to make a name for themselves. Here’s how to make use of the crafting exploit in Cyberpunk 2077.
Using the Crafting Exploit in Cyberpunk 2077
If you’re investing in the Technical Ability attribute with the intention of focusing on the crafting aspect of Cyberpunk 2077, you’ll likely have noticed that it’s pretty difficult to gain crafting XP. You can get it by disassembling items, picking up crafting components, and crafting and upgrading items. However, the experience meter moves pretty slowly, and you’ll spend a long time chipping away at it before you make any significant progress with it.
That being said, there are a couple of crafting exploits that you can make use of to speed up your progress, and we’ve listed them down below.
MaxDoc Mk. 3
The MaxDoc Mk. 3 is an Epic tier healing item that can heal you up pretty easily, but it can also be used in a handy crafting exploit. First, head over to the Medpoint in Santo Domingo, as indicated in the screenshot down below.
Talk to the Medpoint NPC and purchase the MaxDoc Mk. 3 blueprint, and you’ll be able to start crafting it. This item only uses common and uncommon components, making it one of the cheapest items to craft. However, if you dismantle it, you’ll actually get epic crafting components back.
If you do this repeatedly to get epic components, you can then put them towards crafting other epic tier items for even more crafting XP. Rinse and repeat until you have enough XP, or until you run out of common and uncommon components.
Alternatively, a less efficient crafting exploit can be used by examining vending machines around Night City. Find a vending machine that sells $10 items, and buy as many as you can carry. You can then dismantle them for uncommon components, and then use them to craft uncommon weapons.
Uncommon weapons give you more crafting XP than items, and can also be sold for extra cash.
That’s all you need to know about the crafting exploits in Cyberpunk 2077. Be sure to check our guide wiki for more tips and information on the game.
