The world has finally had a taste of Cyberpunk 2077 and the game seems to be getting decent reviews from all PC users. While Console users seem to be facing a lot of problems, everyone still seems keen on trying out this new open-world RPG by CD Projekt Red. Cyberpunk introduces new game mechanics and RPG elements that haven’t been seen in a AAA title for quite some time. One of the much-anticipated additions to the game has been the inclusion of Smart Weapons. Let’s take a quick look at them.
What are Smart Weapons in Cyberpunk 2077
Smart Weapons is a new class of specialized weapons in Cyberpunk 2077 that build on your traditional guns and melee weapons by adding cybernetic augmentation and mods to them. These additions help enhance the stats and introduce new capabilities like bullet bending, trajectory modification, etc. to each weapon depending on compatibility. Cyberpunk is a vast RPG with multiple choices that dictate your gameplay experience. These choices not only come in the form of dialogs but also weapons and your strategical approach to each confrontation. Using Smart weapons is different depending on your character class and character path. They will also influence your character’s stats and improve as you use them in the game.
List of Smart Weapons in Cyberpunk 2077
Let’s take a look at all the Smart weapons currently discovered in Cyberpunk 2077. Keep in mind that while these Smart Weapons will work without using the Smart Link augment for V, you will need to equip the augment to unlock the full potential of each weapon on this list.
Note: This is a tentative list as the entire weapon list for Smart weapons is yet to be discovered. As the game progresses, we will keep this post updated with new Smart Weapons as they are discovered.

Other Smart Weapons
The list above is not perfect as the game is still in its infancy and more details will be revealed as the game ages and more and more users around teh world help discover new elements and weapons in the game. For now, these are the predetermined Smart Weapons in Cyberpunk 2077 but this does not mean that they are the only ones.
Cyberpunk 2077 comes with a lot of customization features and one important one is the ability to add cybernetic augmentations and prosthetics to your characters. You can virtually turn any in-game gun into a smart weapon by equipping the right attachments.
Generally, you will require a specific Eye Augment in the game that will help with targeting and trajectory tracking for each gun. Additionally, you will also need to upgrade your guns and attach cyberwear (modules) which will enable V to interact with the current weapon using his cyber augmentations. Once these two elements are equipped, you can mix and match attachments to turn any weapon into a Smart Weapon in Cyberpunk 2077.
Weapon modules are available for each weapon in Cyberpunk 2077 and come in three classes; Tech, Smart, and Power. These modules can be mixed and matched with each other regardless of the class of your gun. This means that you can essentially attach a smart module to a tech/power gun to turn it into a Smart Weapon.
