There are many things to buy in Cyberpunk 2077, so players will want to earn Eurodollars quickly. Farming money is Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t tough, but our method does require players to invest several hours of playtime to setup. However, the way we farm cash in the game doesn’t rely on RNG and can be performed by any player.
There may be better ways to farm Eurodollars in Cyberpunk 2077; we haven’t been able to cover every square inch of Night City after all. The guide below will at least get players on the road to riches (which they’ll need to afford all the vehicles) and only requires them to pursue a particular mission path first.
Warning: Minor spoilers below.
How to farm money in Cyberpunk 2077
Players can earn Eurodollars from any number of activities in Cyberpunk 2077. However, one of the most efficient ways to do so is through NCPD bounties. There are three types of these that we’ve found, but the two players should concentrate on are Assault in Progress and Suspected Organized Crime Activity. These are two missions that don’t require a quest giver. Instead, they’re found throughout Night City and the Badlands and trigger when the player approaches them.
NCPD bounties boil down to taking out hostiles and finding a Shard that contains evidence of the crime. When they’re complete, players get a small payout from the NCPD, and they get to keep all the loot they find. The combination of the bounty from the NCPD and the money made from selling the loot will quickly fatten the player’s wallets. These missions are easy to farm as they don’t require any prerequisites.
The trick to making Eurodollars quick with NCPD bounties is to take the harder ones on as soon as possible. However, taking on bounties in Heywood or Santo Domingo is nearly impossible while at lower levels. Fortunately, we’ll show you where to get two guns that’ll help players punch above their weight.
To make NCPD bounties a cinch, players should seek out the Overwatch Sniper Rifle and Widow Maker Tech Precision Rifle. Fortunately, both of these can be obtained by following the same questline.
Players should proceed through the game normally until they reach Act 2. After some story events, there’ll be a choice between the “Automatic Love” and the “Ghost Town” questlines. During the Ghost Town questline, players will need to attack a bandit camp ran by Nash in a tunnel. After being defeated, Nash drops the Widow Maker.
Play through Ghost Town, then Lighting Breaks. After that mission is complete, V should get a call that starts the Riders on the Storm quest. Finish this one to get Overwatch.
These two weapons are essential for farming cash as early as possible because they give players the edge against higher level enemies. Overwatch does double damage on a headshot and has a 30% chance to crit on each shot. This means headshots can do around 1800 damage, which is enough to take down most regular enemies in the game in one or two rounds. Widow Maker is powerful, but its main draw is its excellent penetration. When charged up, it can fire through most cover, allowing players to take down foes without waiting for them to peek out.
Once players have these two weapons, the best way to farm money in Cyberpunk 2077 is the start in North Watson and move south, collecting any NCPD bounty seen along the way. When V gets encumbered, do some inventory management and sell anything not currently equipped (aside from Iconic weapons). As players move south, they’ll gain levels, which increases survivability and earn increasingly better gear.
With Widowmaker and Overwatch equipped, players can find a vantage point and take out enemies 10-15 levels higher than them with almost zero risks. By following this plan, most will find themselves with nearly a million Eurodollars within five hours or so.
