Best Sandevistan Build - 2 Second Cooldown

This post is all about the best Sandevistan build for Cyberpunk 2077. This is an operating system of cyberware that allows its wielder to slow down time. Sandevistan allows to take out a room of enemies in a matter of seconds without being shot at

So let's start

Sandevistan Build - 2 Second cooldown

With this build, we will minimize the cooldown time of Sandevistan and other cyberware. This way you will be in full control of time. I think you will have no problems taking out any of the enemies.

Where this build shines is long encounters. Sandevistan will have a few seconds cooldown, meaning that after it ends, you will need to hide behind the cover shortly. You can also see in the gif above, how enemy turrets and drones have no time to activate as I split enemies apart.

Have in mind the build will cover only what you need to maximize Sandevistan usage. This works with any weapon that you will find in the game. We will also see what Cyberware and mods need to be used to have almost instant cooldown Sandevistan


Starting the game

  • Reflexes +3.
  • Body +3.
  • Technical Ability +1.


Here is how I recommend progressing with attributes during the playthrough with the Sandevistan build. The idea is that you want to put attribute points to Reflexes early on. This will allow you to use QianT Sandevistan Mk.4 once you have access to the full areas.

sandevistan build attribute points cyberpunk 2077

Level Reflex Body Tech Cool Int
10 11 8 6 3 3
30 18 15 12 3 3
50 18 15 18 3 3

Now have in mind, that we only cover attribute points that you need for maximum effectiveness with Sandevistan. This build easily works with most weapons in the game and can accommodate a wide variety of playstyles.

Once you choose your weapon, here are which attributes I recommend maximizing with the Sandevistan build:

  • Blades, Katana, Mantis Blade - Reflexes
  • Assault Rifles, Sniper Rifles, Pistols, Revolvers - Reflexes
  • Blunt Weapons, Gorilla Arms, Shotguns - Body

Maximize the selected attribute to 20. This way the build will have maximum effectiveness with a particular weapon.

You will still have some points left after this. So feel free to put it into Cool attribute for increased offensive stats and lucrative Cold BLood tree perks.


This section will cover recommended perks that you should pick for Sandevistan build in Cyberpunk 2077. To be honest the build does not need many perks for itself. The main ones are related to crafting to create the best mods for Sandevistan cyberware.

So you are free to choose any perk tree to play with your preferred weapons. I will list some perk tree options below and some that I definitely recommend taking.

Technical Ability

The perks below are mandatory for the Sandevistan build. All the other ones are optional and provide some quality-of-life improvements.

Cold Blood - for maximum offense

Level Skill Description

Ninjutsu Tree

A few perks in this tree go a long way with the Sandevistan build. The perks work with any weapon.

Level Skill Description
7 Assassin Increases damage against humans by 15%. A very powerful perk as most enemies in the game are humans
12 From the Shadows x2 Provides a 20% bonus critical chance for the first 7 seconds of the combat.

Build tactics

Sandevistan is a very tactical operating system. Although it makes you feel powerful, even with small mistakes you can be torn apart on the high difficulties. Here are some recommendations:

Crafting is the core of the build

Leveling crafting is very important for this build. To get the Legendary heatsink you will need level 18 Crafting. This Sandevistan upgrade will reduce the cooldown times by 4 seconds

Any weapons work

Any weapon works with this build. So feel free to test out your preferred one. What I can say for sure, some shotguns and snipers may be cumbersome. The problem is that they have small clips meaning you will have to reload often. Why is that important?

You use precious Sandevistan time just standing and reloading. So look for weapons with decent clip size and fast fire rate.

Melee weapons also don't suffer from any drawbacks with Sandevistan so feel free to use them to your heart's content.

You are not immortal

Even during Sandevistan effects check your HP. Enemies can still hit you and you can easily "run into bullets". So be ready to hide if needed and heal.

Optical Camo is overpowered

Optical Camo - combining it with Sandevistan allows you to kill enemies without them realizing that you are there. Moreover, this combo allows clearing stealth missions easily. However, this can become boring in the late game.

Equipment recommendations

You really should have the iconic katana "scalpel" in your equipment recommendations. While Sandevistan is active, gain 50% crit chance and 100% chance to cause bleed. Perfect for any Sandevistan build, especially any that max out blades skills. Also has a 10% chance to stun. Deals primarily electrical damage, so is also good against mechanical threats. It's like it was literally made for a Sandevistan build.


Did the heatsink move? Not finding it in Arroyo


It's there. wait 24hours.

Yes, sometimes they dont appear the first time

How are you using a legendary Bioconducter if the requirements are 20 strength same with Microgenerator and legendary Biomonitor which you can get from the ripper doc in the badlands?

Hey, I use Epic Bioconductor as it requires 15 Body. Same for the other two. Trying to get the highest grade possible with the attributes the build has.

Thanks I was just confused because the picture had legendary ones


It took me long to realize you also need to level crafting progress to make legendary rarity of mods. Stuck with rare quality right now. Anyone with tips for quick leveling or is pretty much dismantle/craft/repeat ?


Just keep mass crafting/dismantling grenades or craft epic (purple) weapons which don't require legendary (orange) components (and then dismantle it)

Yeah, I now bolded this part in the build: To craft the Legendary tier you will need to have Crafting progression rewards at level 18.

Regarding crafting leveling, unfortunately I personally went craft -> dismantle path the first time I played :D But maybe there are some tricks how to do it faster


Pro Tip: Do NOT install Synaptic Accelerator if using this build. Its slow time effect makes Sandevistan effect stop earlier. This is mentioned in Cyberpunk 2077 Fandom Notes section and i can confirm it happens all the time.

Nice! Thanks for this tip.



I am doing katana build for many points should i have in my attributes at 50?

Reflexes 20, Cool 15, Body 15, Technical Ability 18, Int 3


thanks and is their any recommend perks i should get for Cool?

Hey! Yeah, updated the post with recommended perks from Ninjutsu and Cold Blood trees



Is this build viable on 1.6 patch?

Assuming yes, does it work with mantis blades?

Again, assuming yes, how many levels (attributes/street cred) to actually start shining?

This build was created after the 1.6 patch was released. It works with most weapons. For Mantis Blades, you should concentrate on the Blades tree.

I think this build starts to shine not based on attributes, but when you obtain Dynalar Sandevistan Mk.3

This can be obtained once you finish Act 1 and have Reflexes at 12


Hope they don't nerf this build too (like preventing using more than one heatsink)

Thanks for your guide Zanuffas

haha :D I used this build before Sandevistan was popular and with 1 heatsink. It was still fairly easy, as single use allows to take out most of the enemy groups.

Hey! I came up with a 10 Body, 20 Reflex, 18 Tech, 3 Int, and 20 Cool build. It's a Katana+Knife+Infinite time slow by using Sandevistan with full heatsink and Kerenzikov. 15-second CD with 12-second CD reduction makes it only a 3-second CD, and by using the Kerenzikov to wait it out. I feel like this could be an alternative build for the best Sandevistan build! What do you say?

Hey, this is what this build achieves. 3 second CD with legendary heatsinks and mentioned perks


Do I need 18 tech to get the legendary heat sink? Can I find it anywhere in the game?

You need to get the crafting recipe from Ripperdoc in Arroyo

Once you have it you will need to level Crafting progression bonuses to level 18 (Technical Ability attribute included), to unlock it.


Hi! Can you make a guide of all the best build in the game, alone with all the funnest build to mess round? Much appreciated!

Hey! Most of the builds that you will make with my guides will be overpowered... It mostly depends on items and perks you pick.

Regarding funny builds I will see. Do not have plans yet for that. Thanks for the request :D
