Cyberpunk 2077: How To Holster Your Weapon

Here is my quick and easy guide on how to Holster the weapon in-game.

How to holster weapons in Cyberpunk 2077 is the first thing you learn in the game. Holstering your weapon keeps NPCs from seeing you as a threat. Also, it is essential to avoid unwanted attention and keep a low profile in Night City.

Key Takeaways
  • You are required to holster your weapon in Cyberpunk 2077 so that you do not upset the NPCs.
  • To do that, you will have to double-tap the weapon wheel button, which can be the Left Alt on the Keyboard, Y on Xbox, or Triangle on the PlayStation system.
  • Or you can open the weapon wheel and select the red gun icon to put away your weapon.
  • Holstering your weapon will keep you at peace with the random NPCs, as they will not see you as a threat.

Now, in Cyberpunk 2077, there are two ways through which you can holster your weapon. One is that you can double-tap the button that brings up the weapon wheel, which is the one I use myself.

The commands, by default, are as follows:

  • PlayStation: “Triangle”
  • Xbox: “Y”
  • PC: “Left Alt”

Furthermore, there is another classic way to holster your weapon. That is, hold down the weapon wheel button to access the weapon wheel and then select the red gun icon with a line through it located to the right. And just like that, you have achieved your goal and effectively holstered your weapon.

Well, for starters, it is good to holster your weapon so that it does not disrupt the game’s beauty while you are admiring it non-violently.

However, it is also essential because the NPCs will react to your weapon when it is withdrawn. And that might make them scared or intimidated by you, which leads to two things. Either they run off, or they attack you.

So, in general, it is a pretty useful feature that you should be aware of and make use of as often as needed. And with that, I bring my guide to an end. I have explained the button that commands the Cyberpunk 2077 character to holster his weapon.
