Cyberpunk 2077 is the latest open-world RPG from CD Projekt Red, and it takes place in a gritty metropolis called Night City. Players will take control of a mercenary named V, who spends most of their time taking on dangerous work in the city while trying to make a name for themselves. Here’s how to get and use throwing knives in Cyberpunk 2077.
Get and Use Throwing Knives in Cyberpunk 2077
Unlike The Witcher 3, which was much more focused on all-out sword and magic combat, Cyberpunk 2077 actually gives you the option to be a bit more stealthy. By investing points in the Cool attribute, you can improve V’s stealth capabilities and be a lot more sneaky when attempting missions.
One good way to take down your enemies silently is by using throwing knives, though you’ll need to spend a Perk Point to unlock that feature.
When you start the game, you’ll have three Attribute Points in Cool, which is already enough for you to unlock throwing knives in the game. When you level up, you’ll gain Perk Points, which can then be used to purchase that ability.
Bring up your menu with the touchpad or View button, then select Character. From here, select the Cool attribute and take a look at the Stealth skill tree.
You should see a perk called Dagger Dealer. Purchase that with a Perk Point, and you’ll now have the ability to use throwing knives on your enemies. One thing to note about this perk, however, is that you actually have to get the knives yourself.
With the Dagger Dealer perk, you can hold L2 to aim and hit R2 to throw any of the knives you currently have in your inventory. However, if you don’t pick them back up, you lose them. If you find yourself running out of knives, you might want to consider purchasing them from any weapon shop in Night City.
Because of how dependent this perk is on the kind of melee weapons you have, it’s definitely not a great one to pick up early on in the game, though your mileage may vary.
That’s all you need to know about how to get and use throwing knives in Cyberpunk 2077. Be sure to check our guide wiki for more tips and information on the game.
