There are only a few iconic items you’ll want when playing Cyberpunk 2077, though when you want them, you’ll really want them. During the earlier flashback with Johnny Silverhand assaulting and nuking Arasaka Tower, you’ll come to really enjoy his gun. With that, you might be wondering if or how you can get it for yourself. Here’s how to get Johnny Silverhand’s gun in Cyberpunk 2077.

How to Get Johnny’s Pistol in Cyberpunk 2077

To get Johnny Silverhand’s gun, also known as the Malorian Arms 3516, you’ll want to progress the Cyberpunk 2077 story until you reach the quest Chippin’ In. During this quest, you’ll be asked to assault a container aboard the Ebunike ship. On board the ship is a man named Jeremiah Grayson, who is currently wielding Johnny’s gun. Kill him and loot his body to get the weapon for yourself.

The Malorian Arms 3516 is a Power Pistol wielded by Johnny back in the day, which sports the following stats:

  • Attack Speed: 3.33
  • Damage: 91.79
  • Reload Speed: 1.35
  • Effective Range: 36
  • Weapon Handling: 5.36

The weapon also sports a 150% Headshot Damage Multiplier along with 25% Armor Penetration.

Is Johnny Silverhand’s Gun Worth Using?

As someone who’s used Johnny’s pistol for some time now, it is absolutely worth using. It is a beast hidden in a small package, firing off extremely powerful shots while having fluid animations that make it feel awesome to use. I put the pistol on for my playthrough, and through the entire rest of the game alongside the Phantom Liberty expansion, I rarely ever took it off. Don’t sleep on this thing; you will quickly learn to regret it.
