Money opens doors and in Cyberpunk 2077, there’s a lot of closed doors. This guide on How To Earn Money Faster In Cyberpunk 2077 will tell you of a simple trick you can follow to drastically increase your earnings and make enough money to buy some of those sweet vehicles you keep getting messaged about.
A brief note. Currency is king in Cyberpunk. More money allows you to get better Cybernetic implants, buy stronger weapons, cooler clothes, faster cars. As such, this is not a method that’s going to immediately make you rich enough to buy everything in the game in just a few minutes. However, with a bit of time and dedication, you can easily earn tens of thousands in a very short amount of time.
How To Earn Money Faster In Cyberpunk 2077
The fastest way we’ve found to get lots of money quickly is to work with the NCPD. When you are exploring Night City, look out for blue ? icons on your map. When you highlight these icons, you will see it as a “Reported Crime” with the NCPD logo underneath. These are very quick areas that usually require you to kill a handful of enemies. If you really want to speed up the process, drop the difficulty down to easy for a bit, allowing you to kill the enemies and move on much quicker.
Once you complete these missions you will retrieve information, usually from an item you loot from a body, that gives you the location of a stash. Once you find this item the Reported Crime is complete but another mission will appear on your screen, with the option of tracking the mission. Choose to track the mission.
You will then be led to the stash location. These are usually unguarded by sometimes there are a few enemies, so approach with caution. The rewards here do vary. Sometimes you’ll get a gun worth a few hundred bucks, other times you’ll find a stash of over 10,000 cash. Most of these missions are also filled with high-profile bounty targets, meaning you get a further cash boost for bringing them down.
Doing this method I was able to pay off my $21,000 fee to the Doc and have another $40,000 to spend just after an hour or so, taking breaks in-between. If we find better methods of earning money fast in Cyberpunk 2077, we’ll be sure to update the guide.
