Ever since its official debut at E3 2018, Cyberpunk 2077 has slowly being detailed by the team at CD Projekt Red. They are talking a lot about what makes the game tick, including how big the main area is, Night City. But of course, as this is an RPG, and one that is supposed to give players a lot of freedom, there are some questions about key items. One of the biggest of which is the wondering about weapons that can be used in the game.
Lead cinematic animator Maciej Pietras talked with Jeuxactu and noted that all kinds of weapons will be available to players, swords too:
“In the demo, you could see several types of weapons and different combat systems,” said Pietras. “All this is related to the class of the character that you will create, according to the skills you will improve. There will indeed be advantages to using this or that weapon, depending on how you level up your character. You will have the choice between technological weapons, powerful weapons, and intelligent weapons, and each of them will allow you to approach the game in several different ways.”
Oh, but it’s more than just having good weapons, it’s about having good weapons that can do special things.
“For example, powerful weapons have a boost that allows weapons to ricochet against the walls and thus reach enemies hidden behind walls. Smart weapons take advantage of an autolock that can target an enemy with homing bullets. As for the melee weapons, you could see the Mantis Blades in the demo. These are incredible weapons, which are attached to the body of the character and allow them to climb on walls, but also to kill enemies in hand-to-hand. There is also another weapon, the katana, that we did not show in the demo but is interesting.”
