On that note, let me now go through the Cyberpunk 2077 All Changes in Edgerunner Update.


In the recent Edgerunners update, players can now create 6 different outfit presets in the wardrobe section. These outfit preset won’t change the armor stats of V. So now you can set up at most six different looks for V while retaining all the needed stats in the game. You can create these outfits in V’s apartment while playing Cyberpunk 2077. When you set up your outfits, you can then switch your look through your inventory menu.

New Gigs

In return for these new gigs in Edgerunners update, you will receive experience, eddies, and street cred. With that said, here are the 3 Gigs that were introduced in the Cyberpunk 2077 Edgerunner Update. The first gig is called ‘Concrete Cage Trap‘, which is an SOS side mission located in Kabuki. Regina will reach out to you for the SOS gig.

The second gig is called ‘Desperate Measures‘, which is a Thievery side mission found in Arroyo. El Capitan will get in touch with you to feed you some more details on it. Lastly, Cyberpunk 2077 has also introduced ‘Nasty Hangover,‘ a new Search and Recover gig hosted by Rogue in Arroyo.

References to Cyberpunk: Edgerunners Anime

Of course, since the update is inspired by Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, it has a lot of references to the show. If you’ve watched the show, then you’ll frequently notice some major and subtle references to the Netflix show. CD Projekt Red has also introduced multiple gear items from the show that you can acquire.

Keep your eyes peeled, and you might get to see stuff like David’s Apartment, Kiwi’s Apartment, David’s Ripper Doc, Turbo Bar, Chop Shop, and many more. For those of you who don’t know, these locations feature in the Cyberpunk Anime series. 

You can also get your hands on some very cool stuff from the show, which includes David’s Jacket, Afterlife Drink, and Rebecca’s Shotgun.

Cross-Progression Feature

CD Projekt Red has also implemented the Cross-progression feature in Cyberpunk 2077. Therefore, in Update 1.6, you can finally save your game’s progress on the cloud. You can then easily transfer your saved files between various platforms. 

New Arcade Mini Game

Roach Race

Cyberpunk 2077’s Edgerunner Update brings a notable addition: the ‘Roach Race‘ arcade game. While exploring Night City, players may have spotted an arcade machine featuring a horse running across the screen. Now, in the update, players can actively engage with the game as V. Roach, the horse, is a familiar character from Geralt of Rivia’s adventures in the Witcher games, offering a subtle Easter egg.

Players control Roach, avoiding Geralt while racing across the screen and collecting apples in this straightforward mini-game. Achieving a spot on the in-game leaderboard can lead to potential prizes. Although a minor addition in update 1.6, the Roach Race contributes to the game’s immersive and lively atmosphere in Night City.

Take Pictures With Nibbles

Photo mode is always fun in RPGs, especially when the game is set in a futuristic place like Night City. Cyberpunk fans would be fully aware of who Nibbles is. Nibbles is a pet cat that V can get in the game. When you do get Nibbles, you can then take photos with him, which is a cool addition to the new Edgerunners update.

It is important to note that you can only do this after you’ve made Nibbles your pet in Cyberpunk 2077. Once you do that, open up the photo mode in the game and scroll to the ‘Poses‘ option. From here, choose the ‘Character‘ option and then choose Nibbles to add him to your photograph.

Sleep Timer

Many RPGs feature a specific time setting option to decide how long their place sleeps/rests for. The reason behind this is to get a more immersive experience from the game; on top of that, it also works as an easy method to skip time. Some players enjoy activities in Night City during the daytime, while others like to go out at night. 

Regardless of your preference, you can now finally choose the sleep time for V. This is a common feature in many other games. However, it’s nice to see the small addition to Cyberpunk 2077 in its latest update.

Xbox Series S Performance Mode

Xbox Series S users can finally let out a sigh of relief because CD Projekt Red has finally included the Performance mode for the console. Performance mode allows users to play the game smoothly at a fixed rate of 60 FPS and doesn’t take a lot of power from the console.

Other platforms already had the performance mode option. However, the Xbox Series S players were barred from it until now. So, if you use the Xbox Series S, this is a great chance for you in Cyberpunk 2077.

So there you have it! All the relevant changes in Cyberpunk 2077 Edgerunner Update.
