Cyberpunk 2077 Class Guide – Solo, Netrunner, and Techie

There are three true Cyberpunk 2077 classes that players will be able to choose from as they start the game. Luckily, players won’t be limited to the skills and abilities of one specific class, but the path they choose will go a long way in determining how their character plays the game. It’s also worth noting that at the time of writing the game hasn’t been released yet, so we only know a limited amount of information about the Cyberpunk 2077 class system. Of course, once the game launches, we will know a lot more.

The first Cyberpunk 2077 class that players can choose from is the Solo class. This is your traditional hands-on, down and dirty class and is designed for those who don’t mind getting their hands dirty. If you’re more of an aggressive player, then the Solo class is likely going to be the one for you. Solos will have a special ability called “Combat Sense” which will allow them to scan an area for threats before charging in, which will probably come in handy quite often.

The next Cyberpunk 2077 class that players have the option to choose from is the Netrunner class. This one is more geared towards players who like to think a few steps ahead to minimize the hands-on work required. Netrunner’s will be tech-focused and will be able to use their cyber knowledge to their advantage by hacking into different devices to make clean work of their enemies.

The third and final Cyberpunk 2077 class is called Techie and is designed for players who like to build their own toys – and by toys we mean weapons. Techie’s will be able to use their engineering knowledge to craft all sorts of guns, tech, robots, and more. So if you like to get creative, the Techie class just might be for you!

While there is still a lot we don’t know about the game, the June Night City Wire livestream event gave players a first look at a few of the features and locations in the game. One interesting feature is called “Braindance” and will allow players to relive another character’s memories and experience their emotions in a VR-like simulation. On the other hand, an area outside of Night City called the Badlands was shown off in the stream, which is home to a group of enemies known as Nomads.

As we learn more about Cyberpunk 2077 classes and gameplay features, we will be sharing it with you on our homepage, so be sure to check back every now and then for new information leading up to launch. In the meantime, you can check out some of our recent Cyberpunk coverage below.
