Starting with one of the most iconic edgerunners, we have David Martinez on our hands. He appears to be a Latino teenager that has an eccentric outlook with his brown hair and eyes and a unique hairstyle. He will typically be seen appearing wearing a simple t-shirt that is colored black, alongside a few necklaces, and comfortable sweatpants that finish off his look, alongside his iconic jacket. 

Qiant Sandevistan MK4

One of the main pieces that players will be able to take note of is that David will be wearing his iconic sandies in the anime, but sadly the exact copy of them hasn’t been implemented in-game yet. Therefore, the best alternative will be known as the Qiant Sandevistan MK4. Whenever it is equipped with David, it will act as a legendary piece of Cyberware. 

The Qiant will be able to reduce the overall time moving to 25% for a total of 12 seconds, after which it will instantly enter its 15 seconds cooldown period. The way to activate the Qiant will be simply by holding down on your E button, after which it will also provide you an enhancement to your damage by a 15% boost-up. 

Location 

To get your hands on it, make your way over to JigJig Street, after which you will need to find the main man’s fingers. Once you’ve done so, there will be a chance that he might outright refuse to sell you the item, but usually, he will give you the Qiant. 

David’s Jacket

As for his jacket, it has to be one of the coolest pieces of his overall outlook. It is a bright yellow jacket, and there will be white bands all around it. Apart from that, there will also be a few red markings on the jacket that will set it apart. 

Location 

As for the jacket’s location, you will need to open up the map and locate the general area where David’s apartment is present. And it will be present in the Megabuilding 4, where you can fast-travel once you’ve unlocked the waypoint. There will be a small alleyway that you can head into, where there will be a small side-quest that you will need to complete to get the jacket. 

Syn-Lungs 

Moving on, there will be a time that is known as a Syn-lung that will essentially provide additional buffs to the player, and the same can be said for David. The main Syn-lung that David will have will provide him with extra stamina regeneration by increasing it up to a total of 25%. How about reading up on our Best Cyberdeck Cyberpunk 2077 guide, which will showcase one of the best cyberdecks that you can come across?

Mantis Blades 

Apart from the Syn-lungs, you can also use Mantis Blades, which will be able to provide 362 base damage, 175 physical damage, and 2.58 attack speed and will allow you to unleash slashes against your opponents that will render them useless. 

Gorilla Arms 

You can also go for the Gorilla Arms, which will provide 458 base damage, 188 physical damage, 2.14 attack speed, and an increased chance of 20% bleeding chance.

One of the first pieces of legendary cyberdecks that she will be able to make use of will be known as the Netwatch NetDriver MK5, which will have a total of 11 base ram, alongside its buffer size being set to 8. 

Whenever it is equipped for your unit, it will grant you the ability to output quick hacks on your opponents whenever you are scanning them. Alongside that, it will also allow you to quickly hack your enemies by using a 6-meter radius to your advantage and can be transferred over to a total of 3 targets. 

Location 

When it comes to the general location, you will need to go over to an area that is known as Haywood from a ripper doc that will essentially provide you with a few upgrades, install as well as exchange several cyberware items. You will simply need to interact with the vendor over there to get your hands on the Netwatch MK5. 

Monowire 

Now, the main piece of cyberware that you will need to go for will be known as a monowire. Whenever you equip it to yourself, you will be able to output a solid 2098 DPS, while its overall base damage will be set to 921.

As for the location, you can get it from the same Haywood area from the same ripper doc, and it will be able to provide you with the Monowire.

One of the most useful edgerunners that you’ll be able to come across will be known as Rebecca, who will be shorter in height, alongside being able to be distinguished from the various tattoos that she has displayed on her body. Her outfit will contain a lot of black elements, a jacket which will have tons of green elements. 

When it comes to her personality, she will be a blunt person who will never take any nonsense from anyone, no matter what. That makes her a bit intimidating to people who don’t know her, as it might scare them off. She is the first one who will typically get into the worst of fights, and there is nothing that she won’t do if she gets into an argument with someone. If you get into an argument with her, beware, as her words sting. 

Guts

When used on Rebecca, it will be able to provide her with a total of 1082 DPS, and alongside that, she will be able to gain a minimum of 69 x 20 base damage, while the max will be set to 84 x 20 base damage, which she will gain 0.70 attack outputs every passing second.

Lizzie Pistol 

Another weapon that Rebecca can make use of will be known as the Lizzie Pistol. You will be able to get the pistol itself quite easily, as you will be able to get it when you start quite early on in the game in the quest, where you’re introduced to Judy. 

The weapon itself will be able to provide you with 519.5 DPS potential, while it will also give you 27 minimum base damage, while the max damage that you’re able to gain from it will be 33.

It will also give your 461 base damage and 190 physical damage, and it will also be able to increase your bleeding chance by 20%, as all other weapons do in the game. The faster you attack with the Gorilla Arms, the higher the chances are of it charging up quicker.
