Mantis Blades In Cyberpunk 2077

In Cyberpunk 2077 people who have seen the Mantis blades in action would always say that it’s an absurdly fun weapon to see. It has very high damage which in turn allows you to instantly kill and rip an enemy to shreds. One cool attack that you can do with the Mantis Blades is to lunge at an enemy from far away. You can do that by holding the attack button. So if you haven’t got this legendary weapon yet, you definitely need to try even if you don’t want a melee build.

All in all, Mantis Blades is an excellent weapon to have in the game. If you like to pick your enemies up and skewer them, then follow my guide so that you can buy the legendary Mantis Blades in Cyberpunk 2077.

How To Buy Legendary Mantis Blades 

Although you might have come here for the Mantis Blades Location, did you know that you can buy the Mantis Blades in Cyberpunk 2077 from most of the Ripperdocs located in various regions of the Night City? That being said, most of the Ripperdocs will always sell rare variants of the Mantis Blades, and sometimes epic ones too. However, if you want the legendary one, then you need to visit Doc Ryder Ripperdoc

Note: All the Mantis Blades variants become available to buy at Ripperdocs on different Street Cred levels. For rare, it’s level 20; for epic, it’s level 25; and for the legendary, it’s level 45.

Where To Buy The Legendary Mantis Blades

Doc Ryder Ripperdoc, who sells the legendary Mantis Blades, is on the Western side of Wellspring at the very edge of Heywood.

Getting to Doc Ryder

If you can’t find Doc Ryder to buy the legendary Mantis Blades, look for the fast travel point on the main road at the given location. On the right side of the road, you will see big venting fans, and just below them, you will see a staircase.

Climb up there and go right from the first turn you see. This will lead you to a hallway-like place with a lane of different shops; you need to find the shop which has a board above saying “Doc Ryder” and this is the Ripperdoc who sells the legendary Mantis Blades.

Fast Money-Making Method For Cyberpunk 2077

Making money in Cyberpunk 2077 is almost like making money in GTA V, which is time-consuming. However, there is a small trick to get loads of cash easily but it requires a bit of hard work. All you need to do is make and sell Ashura Sniper rifles, which sell for €$ 3662 each.

You can find the Ashura rifle schematic easily or get it by completing a side gig called “Small Man, Big Evil.” I recommend doing two things to make the process convenient and quicker.

The first thing you will need is components, Epic, Rare, or Legendary, to make the rifle.  Usually, you can get all the required components from dismantling gears or looting. But the best and fastest way to get materials in Cyberpunk 2077 is going to the locations of Meds Vendors and the Junkshops. To get even more materials from these shops, wait for 24 hours outside these shops for them to respawn the materials.

The second thing I recommend is having the following perks:

  • Edgerunner Artisan: This enables you to craft Legendary Weapons.
  • Ex Nihilo: This allows you to craft an item for free 20% of the time.
  • Cost Optimization: This reduces the amount of component cost by 30%.

IMPORTANT NOTE: After update 1.1 in Cyberpunk Mantis Blades, along with the Monowire can not be farmed at the location I mentioned. Meaning the only way to get them is to buy them from a specific Ripperdoc if your game is at version 1.1 or above. However, with these recent updates, the developers have also lowered the cost for these legendary cyberwares.

Legendary Mantis Blades Location

The location for the legendary Mantis Blades In Cyberpunk 2077 (for versions below 1.1) is inside a loot box, near a side mission called Cyberpsycho Sighting: Phantom of Night City in Corpo Plaza, City Centre. The map below shows the starting point from where you can get to the location.

Cyberpunk 2077 has a huge world, and finding the Mantis Blades’ location might be a bit tricky. To find the marked location of Mantis Blade on the map, zoom into the City Center and look for the roundabout building called Corpo Plaza. When you zoom into the Corpo Plaza, you will see a road going to the northwest. Come down that road, and just to the right, you will see the marked location where you need to start. Now, you may or may not see the exclamation mark on the left for the side quest, but that’s where you will find the Mantis Blades.

How To Reach The Mantis Blades Location

Once you reach the starting location to find the Mantis Blades, you will see a big yellow building on the right with a big “09” on it. Moreover, in front of the yellow building, you will see a black building which will say “Night City” on it. Now, go near that building and take the pathway on the left side of this building.

Now, you will get a call from Regina warning you about a crazy cyber psychopath. This is basically a secret boss battle in Cyberpunk 2077, which is very difficult, especially at lower levels. However, you don’t have to fight it to get the Mantis Blades; you just need to reach the location to grab the gear. I do recommend saving your game here just in case to avoid a bug or other unwanted problem.

Now just run inside where Regina has marked the boss battle. You are 100% guaranteed to find the loot with the Legendary Mantis Blades once you are there. All you need to do is get to the loot box as quickly as you can. Inside the box, you will find the Legendary Mantis Blades and some random loot; it may even have some epic items. Loot them and then run back out if you do not want to fight the boss battle.  

Mantis Blades Installation

A lot of people have been asking on the web why they can’t use the Mantis Blades after acquiring them. The reason is pretty straightforward. To use Smart Weapons, like Mantis Blades, you need the get their specific Cyberware. So, get this weapon’s cyberware from a Ripperdoc in Night City and start slicing enemies.

My Opinion On The Mantis Blades

For me, the Mantis Blades stand out as one of the most potent melee weapons in the game, delivering immense damage and the ability to take down foes with brutal efficiency. The ability to lunge at foes from a distance and tear them apart added a dynamic element to melee combat that I thoroughly enjoyed.

After using them, I personally believe Mantis Blades are a must-have for any player who appreciates versatility in combat. Even if you’re not primarily focused on melee combat, these blades can be a game-changer in your arsenal. The sense of power and control they provide makes every encounter in Night City more engaging.

That does it for today’s guide, and now good luck getting the Legendary Mantis Blades. For more location guides in Cyberpunk 2077, check out the Cyberpunk 2077 Legendary Clothes.
