Cyberpunk 2077 has been out for less than a week, but players have already found creative ways to earn a few bucks. Here's how you can make ends meet using Cyberpunk 2077's money exploit.
Cyberpunk 2077 has had a rough start, CD Projekt are already apologizing and offering refunds for last-gen issues. But whilst some players might want their money back, others want to make money in-game.
The current crafting system in Cyberpunk 2077 is a little bit broken. Players have been trying to figure out how to use this to their advantage since the game's release.
One TikTok user, 'higheyecue', managed to spot an unforeseen exploit with the current crafting system.
Using this exploit players can mass manufacture weapons and equipment and then sell them in order to make a profit. Here's how to do it...
Cyberpunk 2077: Maxdoc Exploit
For this particular Cyberpunk 2077 money exploit, you will first need access to the Maxdoc MK 3 crafting schematic.
If you don't already have this then keep exploring and crafting around Night City. You should be able to find one in no time.
Once you have your hands on it you'll notice that the materials required to build them are relatively low cost. This is the key to Cyberpunk 2077's money exploit.
If you haven't been using the crafting system much, you'll want to craft as many Maxdoc MK 3 items as you can.
This item only costs common and uncommon components so they are well worth crafting. Once you've got lots of shiny new Maxdocs' in your inventory, you'll want to go ahead and dismantle them.
As of right now, the cost to craft these items is very low, but disassembling the Maxdoc will grant you epic components. This is quite obviously an unintentional feature that the devs missed.
In fact, there are quite a few things that CD Projekt might have forgotten about, such as making the game playable for Playstation 4 and Xbox One users.
Cyberpunk 2077: Make That Money!
Now that you have a ton of epic components, its time to make some money!
The next stage of Cyberpunk 2077's money exploit involves using your new-found epic components to craft better and more expensive items.
In the example, 'higheyecue' decided to craft the weapon "Ashura". The epic components allow you to craft a much larger variety of weapons which you can then sell for a bigger profit.
All you need to do is craft until you've created the more luxurious items. You can then sell these items to the vendors around the map.
You don't have to craft the Ashura, but if you have something else available in your crafting menu that's worth making, give it a go.
If you find yourself getting low on components then take a break and explore the wonders of Night City. You might want to check out Cyberpunk 2077's easter eggs that we've managed to find so far.
Once your components have been restocked, you can get back to crafting.
It's worth mentioning that this Cyberpunk 2077 money exploit will also help you to level your crafting skill very quickly, so it's a win-win situation!
Cyberpunk 2077: The Future
It's likely that this exploit will be quickly patched, but if you're quick enough you'll be able to take advantage.
Then again, Cyberpunk 2077 is a single-player game, so maybe you aren't too bothered about cheating all that much. I mean the game has only been out for a few days.
This being said, when multiplayer does come, Cyberpunk 2077's Multiplayer will be a standalone product. So you might want to think about how these features will work in the future.
