While you’ll be leveling up your version of V in the standard way in Cyberpunk 2077, just as you would in any other huge RPG, you’ll also be upgrading your character in other ways as you play. Another way in which you’re rated in Night City is by your Street Cred level. So that you can get the bonuses it offers, here’s everything you need to know about how to increase your street cred fast in Cyberpunk 2077.
Street Cred is different from the basic character level. It is essentially a reputation rating, which will affect how the NPCs perceive your version of V in Cyberpunk 2077. Therefore, you’ll want to boost it as quickly as you can.
How to Increase Street Cred Fast in Cyberpunk 2077
There’s one way and one way only to increase street cred fast and that is to focus on completing gigs. Gigs are essentially extensive side-quest paths that revolve around completing jobs for specific characters, called Fixers. They’ll ask you to do something specific, and you’ll head out into Night City to do it.
As you complete the more basic ones, you’ll get access to better gigs, which allow you to increase V’s street cred even more. Therefore, completing the ones near the start of the game and working through the ones that unlock is the best way to go.
Also, completing Gigs will give you access to better weapons and gear from Vendors around Night City, so completing them will also make other areas of the game easier to get through, on top of raising Street Cred.
It’s also worth noting that Gigs will play out in different ways depending on what Lifepath you chose at the start of the game, so make that choice carefully.
