Whereas I’ve usually been having fun with my time with Cyberpunk 2077, regardless of all its technical points on console, typically you run into one thing so absurd it’s important to cease and write a whole article about how silly it’s. And that’s the place we’re right now.
Whereas I’ve been going full blades, full open fight rampager for my model of V, within the stealth tree there was a ability that me, the flexibility to throw knives.
Now, throwing knives are after all one thing you will get in many alternative video video games, however right here, it is a ability that may concurrently waste 1-Three ability factors, whereas additionally destroying worthwhile gear. Wow!
So what’s the deal?
Gaining the flexibility to throw knives by means of this ability means you might be throwing melee knives. There isn’t any particular form of throwing knife that I’ve discovered within the sport but.
Nice, however the catch is that after you throw a knife, you can not decide up the knife once more. Not embedded in an individual you killed, not on the ground. It’s gone, irrespective of the rarity. I’ve heard tales of individuals throwing blue and purple knives solely to right away lose them earlier than they realized this was the case, even when they might actually see them on the bottom in entrance of them. It’s unclear if it is a bug or supposed, however that is the way it works.
So in idea, I suppose the thought is that you just’re purported to both simply purchase knives for a number of hundred eddies a pop or craft them to make use of for this and stack them in your stock. All of which is silly and wasteful.
Ultimately, this ability can waste not only one ability level, however not less than three with one other perk that upgrades thrown knife injury twice, plus it may possibly make you lose uncommon, epic or legendary knives that you could be not notice you’ll destroy should you threw them.
That is, with out exaggeration, one of many dumbest ability perks I’ve ever seen in a online game. Video games have been giving us throwing knives for the way lengthy now? And this is the way it works in Cyberpunk? You must be kidding me. I perceive the sport has larger issues than this, and but shedding a perk level in an actively dangerous ability goes to trigger quite a lot of regrets for individuals, to not point out shedding no matter knife you occur to throw earlier than you work this out. Therefore this warning.
Don’t get me mistaken, holding onto knives and slashing enemies with them is without doubt one of the most OP issues within the sport, along with all the opposite blades, which I’ve totally specced into. However this ability? Hilariously unhealthy and horrible in a method I frankly have by no means seen earlier than.
Replace: On the suggestion of lots of people, I’ll warn you about one other dangerous perk too.
That is the one the tech crafting tree which auto-dismantles junk. Early on within the sport when cash is scarce, this could value you quite a lot of money, and typically you get junk gadgets which might be meant to be offered for some huge cash, and it scraps these too. Perhaps later within the sport when cash is extra prevalent and also you want extra crafting supplies you will get this, however don’t get it early.
