Cyberpunk 2077 is arguably one of the most anticipated games of the year, and for good reason. Players can tailor the game to model after what they want to get out of it, including tons of choices that will affect the experience. The first choice? Your class. In this Cyberpunk 2077 class breakdown, we are going to help you find which Cyberpunk 2077 class is right for your playstyle.
There are three classes to choose from when you dive into the game, each choice offering unique skills and abilities while even changing how other characters see you in the world of Night City. The three classes to choose from are: Solo, Netrunner, and Techie. Let’s dive right in with the Solo class.
The solo class is for those looking for a more traditional play experience. It’s very melee-heavy and is perfect for those that love to just rush right in and get blood regardless of the consequences.
So, like me.
If you like to tank your way into any situation, the Solo class is going to be your best bet, especially when looking at the Combat Sense special ability. This ability allows players to scan any area in-game for danger, making it easier to just bulldoze right in effectively and make every single one of those punks pay.
This class is perfect for those that don’t want to bother with tech and opt into a more brawler style when taking to RPGs.
The Netrunner class is perfect for those that love to strategize. I don’t personally have the patience for that, but this is a very sound playstyle. Netrunners are tech-focused, but not quite to the extent as Techies. They can use their cyber know-how to hack into the environment (cameras, terminals, etc) in an effort to seize the upperhand through planning and a little bit of recon.
This class is perfect for those that like to analyze the battlefield for optimal advantages. This is also great for those that typically choose mage classes in fantasy-driven RPGs, and is a healthy balance between melee and tech support.
Speaking of tech support …
Techies are fun because the world is pretty much one giant playground. Those that choose the Techie class can build their own run-and-gun toys for optimal destruction. It’s no Guns With Legs like in Borderlands 3, but the amount of tech upgrades and customizable weapons is intense and Techies get a front row seat when playing with the biggest and baddest toys in Night City.
This class is perfect for those that love honed chaos. It’s very creatively driven and pretty much ensures that if there is any roadblock in Night City, your V will be able to craft a way around it.
This class is all about being an engineer, and using that engineering knowledge is key when crafting the ultimate weapon loadout. But it’s not just weapons! Craft robots, spy tech, ‘splody goodness – don’t let your dreams be dreams, go ham!
While there is still a lot we don’t know about Cyberpunk 2077 other than we need it now, we’ll get another inside look with the third episode of the Night City Wire showcase on September 18th.
And there you have it! Those are the different classes and what they have to offer players looking to find the perfect fit! Happy hunting!
