RPGs like Cyberpunk 2077 allow players to choose how to go about every situation, and sometimes you need firepower from the best rifles in the game. We’ve already gone over some of the best pistols you can get, but if that is not cutting it, then these longer-ranged weapons will suffice. Here are our top five picks.
What is the Best Rifle in Cyberpunk 2077?
We have chosen five of the best rifles in Cyberpunk 2077 to highlight. Below you’ll find our picks and details on how to get each rifle.
How to Get Divided We Stand
You can get the Divided We Stand rifle pretty early on with the “Stadium Love” quest that takes you to a 6th Street gang party in Santo Domingo. Whether you participate in the contest that will be offered or you kill everyone and pick it off a table on the right side of where you will talk with the patriotic gangsters, you will have in your hands a powerful machinegun.
The gun may only have one mod slot available, but what makes it one of the best rifles is that it can apply poison damage. Accompanied by its high rate of rife, you will not want to miss this one on your Night City adventures.
How to Get Overwatch
Overwatch is arguably the best sniper rifle in Cyberpunk 2077, and it’s fairly easy to get. All you need to do is follow Panam’s story arc, and by the time you reach “Riders on the Storm,” she will offer you her prized weapon.
Its high damage is only one reason why you need to follow Panam to get her sniper. An equipped silencer for stealth and increased reload speed work together to make it a powerful weapon that can ricochet off walls. This rifle is essential for far-ranged combat.
How to Get Moron Labe
To get the Moron Labe rifle, you will need to craft it, but we will help you to get the recipe. Head over to the West Wind Estate in Pacifica. The instructions for the weapon will be on a criminal, so you will have to fight around until you can get it, but it will be worth it.
While you can give it some attachments with an extra scope and muzzle, the real quirk for this powerful weapon is that it has a chance to dismember your enemies. For players wanting that extra brutality, this is the best rifle for you.
How to Get Prejudice
Another one of the best rifles in Cyberpunk 2077 is Prejudice, and you will need to craft it as well. You can grab the recipe behind the bar at Afterlife during the quest “For Whom The Bell Tolls.” This rifle can pierce through light cover and cause bleeding.
How to Get Psalm 11:6
Similar to what you did by killing a high ranking gangster to get the recipe for Moron Labe, to get Psalm 11:6, you will head over to Watson, Northside. Once you have it, then craft this rifle that has a high chance to burn your enemies.
That’s it for our guide on the best rifles that you can craft or find in Cyberpunk 2077. Now get out there — you have a city to burn. If you’re looking for some more advice to survive Night City, be sure to check out some of our other guides.
