Spoiler Warning! This guide contains spoilers for the main story campaign of Cyberpunk 2077.
Johnny Silverhand is a legendary revolutionary in Cyberpunk 2077… Well, was. Because of that, the Johnny Silverhand Weapon has become an important part of his legacy. And so, you get to find it! The Malorian Arms 3516 might sound generic, but Johnny made sure it was the best pistol in Night City. No matter what your build is, you can’t go wrong with such a brutal slugger of a weapon.
How to Get the Johnny Silverhand Weapon in Cyberpunk 2077
To get the Johnny Silverhand Weapon, you’ll need to progress through the main story, until after the main quest “Tapeworm.” The Malorian Arms 3516 is a really late-game pistol, so you’ll have to get really far along — Tapeworm is the 26th of 30 missions! When you get the side job called “Chippin’ In” from Rogue at the Afterlife, then you’re on your path to Johnny’s reliable sidearm.
The Malorian Arms 3516 is an absolutely devastating pistol. It deals 115-151 damage (with an extra 81-99 thermal damage) with 2.22 attacks per second. It’s hard to miss with it, and has a melee attack with boosted damage, bonus critical stats, bonus headshot damage… and four whole empty mod slots! That’s right, none of those benefits took a mod slot or anything! This pistol is absolutely wild. It’s critical to go for it if you’re going for the gunslinger build since it packs such a heavy punch later on.
“Chippin’ In” isn’t too hard of a quest, although getting to this point in the game might take some time. Meet Rogue at the afterlife, blast through the sidequest, and you’ll grab the gun from Grayson. You might also gain the Samurai Jacket and Porsche 911… But those are both based on your character choices, so make sure you make the right choices! Both the jacket and the car can make the late game so much easier.
That’s it for the Johnny Silverhand weapon, but there’s so much more to Cyberpunk than chasing Keanu Reaves! Check out some of our other guides!
