CD Projekt Red rolled out the second episode of Night Wire City, where they showcased some of the weapons arsenal coming with Cyberpunk 2077 in November.

If you needed justification for why you'd need some serious firepower, you can check it out t around the 17-minute mark. Or here's the skinny - pretty much everything in Cyberpunk 2077 will be trying to kill you, so you better be prepared. 

Cyberpunk 2077 offers a pretty colourful arsenal of weapons, including the sort of weapons you'd expect today's gunpowder weaponry to evolve into. That's just the tip of the iceberg, though, as the game is packed to the brim with things that go boom. 

CDPR's Pawel Kapala said, "We have meelee weapons, we have ranged weapons, we have cyberware - we have offensive cyberware, defensive cyberware, armour - we could talk for hours about this stuff."

Cyberpunk 2077's first weapons type are power-weapons, juiced-up versions of gunpowder weapons. What they may lack in futurism, they make up for with sheer power and the capability to use ricochet to your advantage.

Now, power-weapons look like pretty good all-rounders but if you're looking for true, wall-busting power, then look no further than tech-weapons. These are CDPR's version of a railgun, so we're talking about the sort of piercing power that will probably kill your aunt in Light City if you don't watch where you're aiming that thing. 

Last but not least are smart weapons, which will be particularly interesting to those who aren't great with aiming. We're talking about auto-aim guns that make dispatching enemies a breeze, especially the eight barrel shotgun that Kapala reminded clears the room like no other.
