You won’t last long on the mean streets of Night City without a wallet full of cash. Keeping your coffers full means you’ll have the option to purchase weapons, cyberware, clothing, and other important essentials to keep your head above water. So, here’s our guide on how to get money (Eurodollars) fast in Cyberpunk 2077 for those looking for a quick boost.
How to Get Money Fast (Eurodollars) in Cyberpunk 2077
There’s plenty of money being flashed around in Night City, and there are all sorts of ways you can earn it in quick order. Here’s an overview of the go-to methods for earning money; any combination of these is essentially Cyberpunk 2077’s closest thing to a get-rich-quick scheme.
Update 12/17/20: If you want to get rich quick and don’t mind taking advantage of what is presumably a design bug then check out our infinite money glitch guide. In brief, you can sell a quest reward for a large amount, repurchase it for much less, and then sell it again for the same amount as the first time. This can be repeated infinitely.
First and foremost, make sure you scan your surroundings because there’s often money scattered about the open-world and inside buildings. Since there’s no penalty for stealing in Cyberpunk 2077 you won’t have to worry about upsetting anybody for grabbing whatever you see.
And even random junk that doesn’t seem as though it has any use is actually a decent source of cash since it can be sold for money. Bottom line: pick up everything, sell it on, pocket the money.
Make sure you don’t get the crafting perk that automatically disassembles junk. While it initially sounds appealing, it actually disposes of the valuable materials you could otherwise sell, so you’re losing profit for convenience.
Reported Crime Missions
These are more or less the equivalent of The Witcher 3’s contract quests — short, bite-sized missions that offer V a chance to earn some money, street cred, and valuable XP. Not only will you earn money for eliminating the targets but also for selling any weapons and gear you loot along the way.
Access Points are scattered across Night City, and they offer V an opportunity to wire into the system and steal cash directly from Night City’s corporate overlords via the quick hacking mechanic.
To maximize your gains from each Access Point, increase your Intelligence stat to five and get the Advanced Datamine perk in Breach Protocol. This will increase your earnings by 50%, and later 100% with a second upgrade.
Those are essentially the three best techniques for how to get money (Eurodollars) fast in Cyberpunk 2077 outside of just progressing through the main story. For more useful tips and guides on the game, be sure to check out Twinfinite’s ever-growing guide wiki.
