Cyberpunk 2077 immerses you into the captivating persona of V, a skilled mercenary engaged in a perilous struggle for survival as they become entwined with numerous influential figures from the shadowy depths of Night City. In such a vivid and morally corrupted setting, the path of your extraordinary journey remains unfathomable, leaving you in constant anticipation of the unexpected destinations it will unveil.
The quest "Psycho Killer" will take you on a journey throughout Night City, aiding the defenseless victims afflicted by Cyberpsychosis, a condition arising from excessive use of cybernetic implants. However, in order to assist them, you must confront and combat these affected individuals, who possess formidable strength and pose a significant challenge.
How To Start Psycho Killer
Within the initial act of the game, you will receive a call from the fixer Regina Jones, who will engage you in a conversation regarding multiple individuals suffering from cyberpsychosis that require intervention. Your objective in this scenario is not to eliminate these individuals, but rather to render them immobile, allowing Regina and her team to provide the necessary care and administer an experimental treatment aimed at aiding their resistance against the debilitating effects of their condition.
Please be aware that these adversaries are not ordinary foes; they possess significantly heightened resilience and may necessitate a cautious approach when confronting them. As a general guideline, it is advised to exercise restraint and abstain from engaging a cyberpsycho unless you are absolutely confident in your ability to safely overcome them.
A portion of the gigs will become accessible following the completion of the main story mission 'The Rescue,' while the majority will become available during the later stages of the game's second act within the main storyline. However, all of the gigs will be unlocked and accessible once you successfully conclude the 'Transmission' quest.
Upon completion of each individual gig associated with cyberpsychos, it is imperative to meticulously survey the vicinity and locate pertinent data shards, as these gigs will necessitate a thorough investigation in order to obtain the necessary evidence for their successful resolution.
