Finding the best legendary weapons in Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t hard. However, it’s still better if you know what you are dealing with before knowing the locations.
As followed, If you have played Cyberpunk 2077, you would automatically know that apart from legendary weapons, there are three types of weapons in the game. The first is Smart, which is also the least favourite. These weapons are usually enigma like, and would lock down on topic with “self-guided micro-projectiles.” The second is called Power; these are usually just the common types of weapons that would deal with enormous damage. The last and third are called tech; weapons of this type can prepare a high damage bullet if you decide to hold and shoot. The more you hold, the more damage of the bullet would increase.
Now other than these types, there are also tier’s. These are weapons that are classified into different tiers. The best ones are Legendary, which we will locate in this guide. The rest are followed by rare, iconic, common, and uncommon. Usually, Legendary Weapons require a certain level to equip, and there are also replicas in a different tier.
Legendary Weapon Locations In Cyberpunk 2077
Now, If you are looking for the best Legendary Weapons In Cyberpunk 2077, that are absolutely free, head down below, and explore the best weapons in the game.
One of the most powerful pistols in the game is Lizzi’s Pink Iconic Tech Pistol. This comes in with extremely high DPS – 300+ and features numerous stats that can be further improved through crafting. If you craft Lizzi’s Pistol, there will be further improvement across Thermal Damage, Charge time, charge multiplayer, Burn Chance, and HEadshot Damage Multiplayer. This weapon works quite simply; it fires extra round per shot, and the numbers of shots are increased when fully charged.
Lizzie’s pistol is very easy to find to find. All you have to do is head towards the Bar in Watson, where you meet Judy for the first time. Once inside, there will be a small table, where Johnny Silverhand first appears, and next to it, you will find this piece of awesome legendary weapon. The location for the bar is highlighted below, it is located in Watson, Little China.
Overture Power Revolver
Following Lizzie’s tech pistol, there is also Overture Power Legendary Revolver, which you can get absolutely free. This features silver chromatic colour, that gets topped off insanely high damage per second. The Overture revolver can also come with two mod slots, and would support up to two attachments. These two attachments are scope and muzzle.
Suppose, you did not get the two mod slots along Overture. Rollback to the last save file, and pick this item again. I’ve explained this in my previous cyberpunk 2077 guide, that mod slots on weapons/clothes vary.
Overture Legendary Pistol can be found in Watson, Northside. The exact location is marked below. You will have to head towards a compound, where several gangsters will be combatting the cops. Likewise, the gun would be placed on a barrel to equip.
The Widow Maker is my personnel goto and favourite weapon in Cyberpunk 2077. It features an incredible amount of stats, and the overall looks of the gun are very aesthetic. Widow Maker is categorised in tech and features tons of characteristics that would always help you melt down the enemy. By default, its bullet would do chemical damage, which is an expansion of current bullet damage. Similarly, it also has a charge time and multiplier, along with Headshot Damage Multiplier. Widow Maker works very similarly to other tech weapons. You have to hold off the bullet, and a bolt with serious damage is fired.
Widow Maker isn’t found in a specific location. Instead, you will have to do several missions for Panam, and in one of the missions. You will ambush a tunnel, where this weapon would be equipped on enemy NPC. Once picked, this will be forever yours.
Although Scalpel isn’t a weapon, but its still a powerful combat item that you can get for free. This can cut all enemies in half, but it also requires you to get close range. The scalpel is also called Katana in Cyberpunk 2077, and it can be retrieved from a side mission that orders you to capture a dead body and return it for money.
Over at Watson, Little China, you can head over to this bridge end. Once there, you will find a side mission that would lead you to Dennis, who would then further explain the mission. Once you have done the mission and return to Dennis, the Scalpel will be right next to him on a barrel.
The Comrade’s hammer is one spicy and one of the best pistols in the game. Its DPS can go up to 2500+, and is classified in the tech category. Comrade’s main specifications are rapid-fire, which burst through its high Critical Damage, and rapid Headshot Damage Multiplier. The gun isn’t found directly. Instead you will have to work around its crafting.
The crafting spec for Comrade’s Hammer can be found in Santa Domingo, Arroyo. It’s located at this police icon, where you will find it equipped on one of the gangsters. Move towards this location, kill everyone, and check the dead bodies for the loot. I’ve shared the picture for this legendary weapon above as well.
Once you have gotten the crafting spec. Head over to inventory, where this will be available in the crafting section. Likewise, you have to find the required components and craft this legendary weapon. The class can also be further improved, and you can make it legendary with few upgrades.
Like the Mantis Blades, there is also Monowire, a highly specialised Cyberware that can be used to whip enemies. It’s not precisely a Cybware; instead, you could say it’s categorised in the weapons section. The Monowire is a melee weapon and can deal tremendous damage plus also help you get rid of enemies in close range.
I’ve seen many Cyberpunk 2077 players not liking Monowire because of its low damage and debatable stats. However, many do not understand the perks and progression system in Cyberpunk 2077 that plays a key role in improving Monowire.
To further expand on what I said above, Monowire carries skill progression for Street Brawler, which gets topped off with Combo Damage on Blunt Weapons. This exactly means that any perk you upgrade or get in the Street Brawler Section will have a statistical impact on Monowire. For example, If you get the Efficient Perk Blows, it completely transforms the Monowire with 100% efficiency resulting in increased damage higher stamina.
To get the Monowire In Cyberpunk 2077, you will have to visit Watson, Kabuki Region. Over there, a garage located on the edge of the map would have this item once you get it, head over to Ripperdoc and get it installed.
Divided We Stand
The divided we stand is one of the most ridiculous and over-powerful gun in the game. It is tremendously unique because unlike other guns we have found in this guide. This has an adequate open cross-hair, that bullets shot from this gun automatically reach enemies. It’s like an aimbot in disguise, so don’t miss it.
The gun can be equipped in two ways. You can either do a mission for a rancher outside Santa Domingo, Rancho Coronado. Or, you could kill everyone in the party, grab the gun, and leave.
This place or side-mission called Stadium Love can be found down below.
It’s reasonable that you are only interested in the gun, so your option would be to kill everyone. Make notes that until and unless every person in this place isn’t killed, you won’t be able to grab this legendary weapon.
All in all, Divided We Stand is a decent Smart Weapon. It features incredible chemical damage, which means that even If you aren’t spamming the enemy. The first two three bullets would do their job. In a similar vein, its Poison Chance, along with Headshot Damage Multiplier, is also decent. You can further craft this weapon and get better results along with legendary status.
Are you looking for the base SMG In Cyberpunk 2077? Well, look no further. Fenrir is an outrageous SMG Power SMG that would melt all enemies with its high recoil. The SMG comes in with decent DPS and Reddish skin that gets topped off with rare/iconic class. Fenrir might not be the best weapon that would deal high damage. However, it’s advantageous in scenarios where you are trying to lock down various gangs.
This can be once again found from a side-mission, where you will have to comfort a monk, whose brother needs rescuing. Once rescued, you will discover Fenrir placed on a table, allowing you to equip it. This side-mission is located in Watson, Northside. While looking for this, make sure that you are going to the correct mission. There are three missions in this region, and as I said, you have to look for a monk.
The location for Fenrir and this side-mission is shown down below.
In case the stats for Fenrir weren’t good enough for you. There is always the option to attach mods and get necessary items to craft for further enhancements.
Suppose you haven’t come across the Yorinobu mission, where you have to spy on an apartment. Then, you are lucky because this rare piece of Legendary weapon can only be found through the Yorinobu mission.
Once you are given the task to find hidden equipment in Yorinobu’s apartment, you will have the chance to scan it completely. While doing that, this Power Pistol called Kongou would be available inside Yorinobu’s bed side-table. Besides, I cant spoil the entire mission, but just to let you know, this is also the same place where you first meet Adam Smasher.
Skippy is Cyberpunk 2077’s most deadly and unique weapon. It has a feature where while you are taking down enemies. It’ll throw random comedic narrative to make things calm and also get you laughing. The words aren’t enough to describe this insane weapon, so it would be better you find it through the instructions below.
Skippy can be retrieved from Vista Del Rey, in the region of Heywood. Subsequently, there is an unnamed Side Job that would ultimately get you this weapon. The exact location for this side-job is shown down below.
The instructions could be a bit lengthy, so I recommend heading to our Skippy specific guide.
Plan B Pistol
At this point, I can’t keep on saying Unique Weapons of Cyberpunk 2077. Because this piece of weapon is probably nothing, you would have seen so far. The Plan B Pistol is classified in Rare/Iconic, Power Category. The best thing about this weapon is that it comes with an unlimited gun. As you can see in the picture above, the ammo by default is 662796. This wasn’t picked up from my inventory or anything. This is by default, which is extremely brutal.
The Plan B Pistol can be equipped from the late Dexter DeShawn. If you remember correctly, he was left dead in a dirt pile. Thankfully, Dexter’s corpse is still there and If you visit the outskirts of Night City, at the location shown below. Dexter will be there, and this Plan-B Pistol would be equipped on him.
Other than having infinite ammo, the Plan-B pistol also comes in with decent stats that consists of dischargeable physical damage, bonus ricochet damage, bleeding chance, and Headshot Shot Multiplier. I didn’t find it to be very overpowerful; however if aimed correctly, the bonus Riachet Damage could prove to be useful.
Incase you haven’t reached to this point of the story. Then check your mobile phone, and ensure that the Heist mission is completed. Once done, you can grab this free legendary pistol.
While it’s a bit weird to name a weapon after a game, but seemingly so, this Sniper called Overwatch in Cyberpunk 2077 is the most ridiculous weapon you would see.
It is categorised in the Legendary Tier and featuring Power Tier. The Overwatch Sniper, with its pinkish colours, would fool anybody who misjudged it. The weapon features a stunning 500 DPS that gets an additional bonus through brutal 900 Physical Damage, +40.98% Crit Chance, +100% Crit Damage, 10% Bleeding Chance, and most importantly 2.10 Headshot Damage Multiplier. Another overlooked aspect of this sniper is the Increased Reload Speed, which is enhanced through the custom silencer.
These stats do look confusing, but If you want the best legendary weapon in Cyberpunk 2077. Look no further, the Overwatch Sniper is one hell of a unit if you can handle it.
Unlike other legendary weapons, we have located so far. The Overwatch weapon, with its rarity cannot be found so easily. You will have to do quests for Panam and remember not to discourage her motives, else the Riders on The Storm mission would not appear for you. Once you finish this mission, Panam will gift you this awesome piece of the legendary weapon.
Many would debate Liberty isn’t a decent Power Pistol. However, If you break down its stats and compare with Plan B., Liberty indeed becomes competitive and would be better than many Legendary Pistols in the game. It features relatively similar stats as Plan B with 46-56 Damage and 194 DPS. Its physical damage, along with crit damage, are significantly better than Plan B. Moreover, the Headshot Damage Multiplier is also decent If you can land good shots. The only sector where it would rank below Plan B is the bleeding chance, which is 3% lower. Obviously, all these stats can be improved through crafting and mods, but a general weapon tier comparison would place them here.
The Liberty Pistol and D5 Sidewinder, rival to Divided We Stand, can be found from a weapon vendor outside Night City. He sits next to a fast travel point and runs small shop through his van. The Location for this legendary weapon is highlighted below.
Mantis Blades and Katana
One of the crazy combat items in Cyberpunk 2077 is Mantis Blades. You would have already seen the viral videos in which players are slaying the enemies through Mantis Blades. These are probably one of the most effective combat items in the game and if used properly through the cyberwaer. It can be useful in all combat scenarios.
To get the Mantis Blades, you will have to defeat an extremely powerful Cyberpsycho. He only has the Katana at his disposal, but his shadow ability would allow him to teleport in an instant. Make sure, when you are approaching the Arasaka Tower at City Centre, Corpo Plaza. You are well equipped with all sorts of weaponry to fight him.
Once the Cyberpsycho is defeated, you will get his Katana, which has 1000 DPS. On top of that, you will also find these Mantis Blades topped along with several other important items.
The location for Mantis Blades and Katana is shown below.
The L-69 ZHUO is the best Legendary Shotgun by a mile in Cyberpunk 2077. It comes in with ridiculous damage of 700+ DPS, which is further enhanced through Smart tier, meaning you don’t have to be bothered by poor aim; All bullets land straight on the enemy. In addition to this, it also features a decent amount of thermal damage, which isn’t surprising considering this weapon is a shotgun. You also get moderate Crit Chance along with brutal Damage and lucky Burn Chance plus Headshot Damage Multiplier.
Suppose these stats aren’t good enough for you. Remember that Mods and other crafting is always available for this legendary weapon. Once you have grabbed the Mantis Blades, L-69 ZHUO is just around the corner. That is to say, you will have to visit a gun shop called “, and he will have this legendary weapon.
In case you are short on money and aren’t able to buy it. We have covered a similar guide on money glitch, which can be viewed here.
Note: Suppose the gun shop only has the Rare or Uncommon Tier of this weapon. Go with the old meta, and reload the game numerous times until he has the legendary L-69 ZHUO. This can be done by saving the game outside the shop.
La Chingona Dorada
If you remember the late Jackie Welles, then you would also not forget his iconic pistol La Chingona Dorada. This is classified as one of the best-looking weapons in the game, and can also be handy across many missions. The La Chingona Dorada features the power tier, and comes with reduced reload speed plus an extra mod slot. In addition, it also carries the ability to apply “Burn and Stun.”
To get Jackie’s Pistol, you will have to visit Heywood, The Glen. Over there, enter the El Coyote Cojo Bar and inside you will find Jackie’s weapon on a table.
Note that it is imperative you have done all the remaining of Jackie’s mission and gone through the funeral process. This happens after the Heroes sidequest, which can be viewed through the mobile.
Similar to the Katana we found earlier. There is also Cocktail Stick in the game. This is another Melee weapon, extremely rare, and comes in at Rare/Iconic class. The Cocktail Stick will remind you of Beat Saber with its extremely sharp edges and laser-like reflections upon cutting down enemies.
The Cocktail Stick can be retrieved in two ways. First, If you haven’t completed the Automatic Love quest, then it would be easier. When going to Clouds in the Automatic Love Quest, head over to the VIP section, and don’t forget to kill the guard in the washroom and get the VIP Pass. Once inside, you will find Cocktail Stick on the table.
In case you have already done the Cocktail Stick mission. Then It would be a bit hard, but not impossible. You have to find a way and get inside Clouds. Many Cyberpunk 2077 players are already aware of the Clouds trick, and suppose you aren’t. Here is how you can get inside Clouds and get the iconic Cocktail Stick.
Although we have already covered the best Legendary Shotgun, still, if you aren’t satisfied with the L-69 ZHUO’s service, then luckily we have another, which is called M2038 Tactician. This comes in at Power Category and, as expected, with higher damage but slower reload speed. This is a bit problematic because, unlike L-69 ZHUO, this isn’t smart, and landing shotgun bullets is often a nightmare.
In any case, it’s still decent, especially with its gold-tinted looks. To get the M2038 Tactician, you will have to visit a highly guarded hood in Santa Domingo – Arroyo Region. Once there, defeat all enemies, and this shotgun will be accessible on a small table across the constructions.
Prototype: Shingen Mark V
The last and probably the best legendary weapon in Cyberpunk 2077 is Prototype: Shingen Mark V. This gets categorised in Smart and comes as a replica of the grenade launcher. The Prototype: Shingen Mark V shoots explosive rounds that are able to hit enemies directly through the Smart tier. Moreover, its default stats are good, but these can become very good through further crafting. It features 4.55 Attack Per Second and has decent Thermal Damage, Crit Chance, Crit Damage, Headshot Damage Multiplier, and a slight chance of Burn.
If you want to get this weapon, make sure that Smart Link Cyberware is at your disposal. Other than that, this can be found over at Santo Domingo, Arroyo Region. There is also another way, which is through the story but suppose you have missed it. Head over to this place shown below, and you will find the Prototype: Shingen Mark V.
The place is heavily guarded so take suitable pieces of equipment with you.
Finding the best and most brutal weapons in Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t hard. In fact, all these shared above were located after playing the game for hundreds of hours and presenting a list from the relative experience. Here at eXputer, we dug every weapon in the game, and as per stats and many more factors. The ones shared above always turned out to be more valuable than others. The game still has loads of other weapons, and they can also be crafted to become more deadlier.
Cyberpunk 2077 allows you to equip three weapons at a time, and these could be of any tier. If you have played the game more and are rich, equipping all Legendary Weapons with decent Cyberware would make your character impeccable. Also, do not forget about Armor and its importance in combat.
Moreover, the majority of legendary weapons in Cyberpunk 2077 come with mod-slots that are sometimes equipped. Besides, If you haven’t been paying attention and didn’t get the gun with mod-slots, you should reload back and forth to get it again. These mod slots cannot be added manually, which is a problem because in later stages of the game, you won’t be able to make the most out of the weapon.
If there are other weapons that should be considered brutal and top-notch, please suggest them in the comments below.
