Cyberpunk 2077 just got its next major update - Patch 1.6 - named after the new Netflix anime series Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. The Edgerunners Update features content inspired by the new series (including cosmetics), alongside a long list of fixes and quality-of-life improvements. Plus, a few new Gigs and weapons too.

Being able to transmog V's look is definitely a big one. Here's a look at the major content added.


Wardrobe allows you to change the appearance of your outfit without changing your armor stats. You can create up to 6 outfits using the pieces of clothing you own by accessing the wardrobe in any of V's apartments and safehouses and then switch between them in the Inventory panel.

3 New Gigs

Fixers will give you 3 new gigs:
    Gig type: SOS: Merc Needed
    Location: Watson, Kabuki
    Fixer: Regina
    Gig type: Thievery
    Location: Santo Domingo, Arroyo
    Fixer: El Capitan
    Gig type: Search and Recover
    Location: Santo Domingo, Arroyo
    Fixer: Rogue

New Weapons

6 new firearms:
    Kappa (Smart Pistol)
    Senkoh LX (Tech Submachine Gun)
    Hypercritical Iconic Precision Rifle (obtainable in Gig: Concrete Cage Trap)
    VST-37 (Power Shotgun)
    MA70 HB (Power Light Machine Gun)
    Kyubi (Power Assault Rifle)

5 new melee weapons:
    Neurotoxin Knife (+ Iconic variant Blue Fang)
    Punknife (+ Iconic variant Headhunter)
    Claw (Axe)
    Razor (Machete)
    Cut-O-Matic (Chainsword)


Added a Cross-progression feature between platforms. Your latest saves will be automatically uploaded to the cloud so you can continue where you left off easily on other platforms. Cross-progression provides the latest save for every save type (Quick, Auto, Manual, etc.). Feature becomes available after you log in with your account (from Main Menu or the in-game Load Game menu). Cross-progression may be limited when it comes to console versions with regional restrictions.

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners Content

Added some secrets related to the Cyberpunk: Edgerunners anime series to be discovered in Night City, including new equipment and new Photo Mode features.

Arcade Game: Roach Race

You can now play a brand new mini game using arcade machines located in Night City, including the ones in the Northside, Japantown and The Glen apartments. Climb the leaderboard to earn special prizes including cash and items! If you're enjoying Roach Race in Cyberpunk 2077, check out the mobile version for Android and iOS. Remember that your high scores in the in-game and mobile versions are separate, though.

Nibbles in Photo Mode

You can now take photos of Nibbles in Photo Mode! While in Photo Mode, go to the "Pose" tab and choose Nibbles in the "Character" section. Please note that this option becomes available only after you invite Nibbles to V's apartment.

It's worth noting that cross-progression doesn't work when jumping from PC to console, but works the other way. The Patch 1.6 notes are quite extensive too - and you can read them in full here. Here are some of the highlights we picked out.
  • Added an option to modify V's face and body at Ripperdoc clinics (Gameplay).
  • Balanced Sniper Rifles. Sniper Rifles should now be only able to one-shot enemies after the player invests in this weapon archetype. Lowered damage output for the Overwatch Sniper Rifle. The Nekomata Sniper Rifle will now be easier to handle while charging (Weapons).
  • Sir John Phallustiff will now have a new Iconic effect, increasing damage when hitting NPCs in the face. It will also have a chance to stun enemies with strong attacks. Gamepads will now be constantly vibrating while holding the weapon (Weapons).
  • The O'Five Sniper Rifle will now have a new Iconic effect, causing bigger explosions that can light the targets on fire. The more enemies are burning, the bigger are the buffs the player is getting to Crit Chance and Reload Speed. It will now come with a unique scope and require 20 Body to equip (Weapons).
  • The Divided We Stand Assault Rifle will now have a new Iconic effect. Bullets will now have a greater chance to miss the target, with a chance to explode into Biohazard clouds.
  • Biohazard clouds are guaranteed to poison nearby enemies (Weapons).
  • The Yinglong Submachine Gun will now have a new Iconic effect. The chance to cause EMP explosions has been significantly increased. Clip size has been increased to help wreak havoc with EMP explosions (Weapons).
  • Added new poison perks – Corrosive Poison and Critical Antidote (Ninjutsu skill tree), replacing Hasten the Inevitable and Neurotoxin perks respectively (Perks).
  • Added more secrets in Night City to be discovered by players. Due to some technical challenges, this change isn't available on the previous generation of consoles (Quests).
  • V will now sleep in bed for an amount of time set by the player (Quests).
  • Added item preview so that it's possible to see an item on V before you buy it (UI).
  • Neon rims on bikes now come in different colors (Visual).
  • Added new hairstyles in Character Creation (Visual).

  • Finally, as part of a stream celebrating the new anime series and game update we got word that more major changes are coming, including a massive overhaul to the policing system and vehicle combat that will change the game in a big way. CD Projekt RED notes that all future updates featuring new content will be exclusive to PC and current gen platforms (Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5) with the Xbox Series S getting its own performance frame-rate mode with Patch 1.6. Plus, we also got a glimpse at the first Cyberpunk 2077 expansion called Phantom Liberty - which includes the return of Keanu Reeves as Johnny Silverhand.

    Here's that stream in full.
