How to holster a weapon in Cyberpunk 2077

The premise is the same regardless of which system/console you are using and only the action key/button is different. You need to double-tap the key that you use to draw your weapons out. So on PC, you must double-tap the Alt key, on the Xbox controller double-tap the Y button, and on PlayStation, you need to double-press the button with the triangle on it.

  • PC – double press the Alt Key
  • Xbox Controller – double press the Y button
  • PlayStation – double press the Triangle button

You can also execute the holster action by long-pressing the Alt, X, and triangle on the respective systems instead of just double-tapping them. This will open the weapon wheel and give you access to a wider range of weapons. During confrontations, however, it’s best to follow the double-tap method just to ensure safety and quicker reaction time.
