While it may be incredibly fun to wreak havoc in Cyberpunk 2077, not every situation will call for you to go in guns blazing. Some will require a more delicate approach, and you’ll need to keep a low profile sans-signs of hostility toward those around you. That’s why we’re here to walk you through how to holster your weapon in Cyberpunk 2077.
How to Holster Your Weapon in Cyberpunk 2077
Holstering your weapon in Cyberpunk 2077 is easy to do, and even easier to remember once you’ve done it a few times.
While you have a gun or melee weapon equipped, double-tap the Triangle Button on PlayStation consoles or the Y Button on Xbox consoles. On PC, double tap Alt. This will make your character holster their gear and will prevent them from attacking until you take them back out.
Speaking of which: All you need to do to un-holster your weapons is press Triangle or Y again, or press R2 or RT. This will re-equip your weapon and leave you armed for combat.
When You Should Holster Your Weapon
As for when you should holster your weapon in Cyberpunk 2077, it’s fairly straightforward.
Approaching certain NPCs with your armaments drawn, or entering certain areas while actively armed, will lead to you being seen as a threat. This can lead to combat situations you otherwise could have avoided and can lock you out of certain events and scenarios in missions that required a more peaceful approach.
Think about how you want certain NPCs to view you, and how they will react to you either having or not having your weapon equipped. Once you have a grasp on that, you can holster your weapon or keep it held out in front of you menacingly as you see fit.
