Tech Sniper - Complete Build

In this post, I will go through the best Tech Sniper build in Cyberpunk 2077. I will go into detail on what attributes to pick, recommended perks, and progression. Moreover, we will go in-depth on what gear you should use to make the best out of this build

So let's start

The post is a work in progress

Tech Sniper Build

The Tech Sniper is a build that uses Tech weapons. You may ask what makes these weapons special? Well, they are overpowered. Very overpowered. Tech rifles can shoot through walls. So you can engage and take out groups of enemies without them even knowing their killer

Of course, we will go all-in on maximum damage. This will almost make sure that most of the enemies in-game are dead from one headshot.

Beleive me even normal shots to the body will kill them:

Unfortunately, this comes with a big drawback - low HP and survivability. You will have to use your wits to avoid enemies and find a way to hide in case they directly start attacking you.

But I will give you all the tips you know for how to best use Tech Sniper Build

Attributes

In this section, I will go through recommended attributes and how you should progress with them. Picking the correct ones will ensure that you have sufficient stats to kill enemies.

Starting the game

  • Reflexes +3
  • Technical Ability +2
  • Cool +1
  • Body +1

Progression

It is important to progress through the game in an optimal way. The problem is if you will spend points on incorrect attributes you may be too weak to fight against enemies.

Here is my recommendation on how to spend attribute points for each level up in order

  • Technical Ability +2
  • Reflexes +2 
  • Cool +1 - you want to be able to avoid enemies
  • Body +1 - until you reach 6 points. This will provide some minimal survivability for the build

I left out Intelligence and on purpose. I think you should spend points on it late in the game when you are about level 30+. The Tech Sniper Build needs it for some cyberware, otherwise, using Ping without any investment will still work

At the maximum level of 50 here is what you should have:

Level Skill Description
1 Biosynergy x3 Increases RAM recovery for quickhack usage.
1 Bloodware x3 Take this if you plan on using offensive quickhacks: Short Circuit, Synapse Burnout, etc.

9 Signal Support x2 Increases quickhack duration by 50%. Allows revealing network members for a longer time.

Build tactics

  • The main effectiveness of the build is to learn to charge the weapon correctly. Once you have the ability to charge the weapon to 100% it starts swaying wildly. So if you find this hard to manage, do not charge fully. Of course, you can even skip this and don't take the perk Up To 11.
  • Using Ping quickhack. It will reveal most of the enemy locations in the network, allowing to see enemies through walls. When you can see them, then charge your sniper and take them out

  • Other quickhacks can also be used as they greatly improve your offensive options. Of course, due to Low intelligence they won't be as strong.
  • Crafting is an important aspect of the build. It will allow crafting legendary iconic sniper rifles for the greatest damage available.
