This post covers the best Smart weapon builds in Cyberpunk 2077. These types of weapons are able to target enemies automatically and then release homing rounds.

Although not perfect this allows the wielder to shoot in quite a wide area and not need to target the enemy precisely.

There are multiple Smart weapons in the game that allow for different approaches to be used.

 

Smart Weapons Build - Pistols and Rifles

This build is a variation of the Smart Weapons build that works with Pistols, revolvers, assault rifles, sniper rifles, etc.

Build tactics

This section has some tips for how to play Smart Weapon build. I will go through each of the main weapon categories.

Handguns - Pistols and Revolvers

The build is fairly simple and relies on hiding behind the covers to shoot enemies effectively. I think it takes some practice to correctly pull it off.

The main point is to wait until the weapon targeting system picks up the enemy. Once you hear a "click" sound you can start shooting.

Pistols have a high headshot multiplier due to the Handguns perks. So check that the automatic targeting system picks up enemy heads.

Another important aspect is to use dodging. Lead Sponge is a unique perk that allows shooting while dodging. If you have Kerenzikov equipped this will slow time and allow you to better pick enemies.

Sniper Rifle - Ashura

The one and only Smart Sniper rifle. Unfortunately, it has only 1 round per clip. Due to this, you need to use it correctly not to be overwhelmed.

Mainly I suggest using it when you are entrenched well and enemies cannot surround you. The low fire rate makes you extremely vulnerable to multiple enemies.

Assault Rifles

I think this is a general pick that is worthwhile in most situations. These weapons deal adequate damage, have a good fire rate, and have large magazine sizes.

Submachine Guns

I would pick these weapons based on certain conditions. SMG like Yinglong is effective against drones. Divided We Stand has a large targeting area and multiple targets. This allows spraying bullets without putting much effort.

Smart Weapons Build - Shotguns

Going with Shotguns requires a bit different approach to stat allocation. The main one is that we will need an Annihilator perk tree. It can be found under the Body attribute.

Attributes

This section will cover the main attributes of the Smart Weapons Shotgun build needs.

Starting the game

  • Body+3. This will maximize Shotgun damage. Moreover, it will provide plenty of survivability options, like sprinting reload, more HP and armor
  • Cool +3. It will allow you to increase the effectiveness of Cold Blood
  • Technical Ability +1

Progression

Build tactics

Although shotguns generally have a wide shot, smart shotguns don't suffer from this weakness. Due to this, you can start shooting instantly, once the target has been acquired.

Of course, due to perks like Speed Demon, your damage increases the faster you are moving. So for the best effect, it is wise to constantly sprint

Equipment recommendations

Here is the list of Equipment that I recommend getting for Smart Weapons Build

Weapons

As you can guess we will mainly be using Smart Weapons. Early in the game, they may underperform. However, once you unlock some iconic or get legendary versions the game will become much easier.

Pistols

This build will mainly use smart pistols. And there are quite a few of them.

cyberpunk 2077 genjiroh smart pistol

Unfortunately, they do not deal a large amount of damage so you may need to be more careful on high-difficulty encounters.

Priority Item Description
1 cyberpunk 2077 genjirohGenjiroh This is probably the best smart pistol. It releases multiple bullets from one shot.
2 chao cyberpunk 2077Chao Kang Tao themed pistol. It is available throughout the game in multiple occasions.
3 skippy cyberpunk 2077Skippy Although it is not very powerful it is a great weapon early and mid-game. It also comes with unique effects and quest, that I definitely suggest trying
4 yukimura cyberpunk 2077HJKE-11 Yukimura The base smart pistol that you can use.

Assault Rifles

Priority Item Description

Shotguns

Priority Item Description
1 ba xing chong cyberpunk 2077Ba Xing Chong A crazy powerful shotgun, that releases explosive rounds. Being a smart weapon it feels like cheating when using it. Unfortunately, it can only be obtained by the end of the game.

Cyberware

This section will cover the recommended cyberware for Smart Weapons build.

Cyberware - Frontal Cortex

Heal-On-Kill will not be equipable with Smart Shotgun build. However, due to 9 Intelligence, this build can equip some intelligence-related cyberware for better Critical stats

For Smart Weapons build with assault rifles, sniper rifles, and pistols, the intelligence-related cyberware will not work

Slot Item Description
1 Heal-on-kill cyberpunk 2077Heal-On-Kill This item provides a certain percentage of health after each enemy that you kill. The effectiveness increases with the cyberware rarity

2 microgenerator icon cyberpunk 2077Microgenerator When your Health drops to 15%, release electroshock that deals damage
3 second heart cyberpunk 2077Second Heart Another great option, especially early in the game when you may die often. It provides a second chance before you die. Unfortunately, will only work with Smart Shotgun build due to the 16 Body requirement.

Cyberware - Immune System

Slot Item Description
1 shock n awe cyberpunk 2077Shock-n-Awe Release electroshock when being hit. Has a certain activation chance.
2 pain editor image cyberpunk 2077Pain Editor Reduces all the damage that you receive by 10%.

Cyberware - Nervous System

3 heat converter image cyberpunk 2077Heat Converter Increases damage if you are burning

Cyberware - Operating System

One of the operating systems I recommend is Sandevistan. Use it if you have high Reflexes, for Smart Assault or Pistol builds.

Priority Item Description
1 Militech Falcon Sandevistan Mk.5 cyberpunk 2077Militech "Falcon" Sandevistan Mk.5 Provides 20 Crit Chance and 35% Crit Damage while Sandevistan is active. The effect lasts 18 seconds. Enough for most of the encounters.
2 QianT Sandevistan Mk.4 cyberpunk 2077QianT Sandevistan Mk.4  Gives a 15% critical chance and a 15% damage dealt increase while Sandevistan is active.
3 dynalar sandevistan mk 4 cyberpunk 2077Dynalar Sandevistan Mk.4  Increases damage and Crit Chance by 15%. Has a 30-second cooldown.
4 dynalar sandevistan mk 3 cyberpunk 2077Dynalar Sandevistan Mk.3  I recommend getting the Epic version early as possible as it will greatly improve your gameplay.

Operating system mods

Mod name Description

For Smart Shotgun build go with the Berserk operating System. It scales best with the Body and provides weapon damage, armor, and health

3 Zetatech Berserk MK.5 cyberpunk 2077Zetatech Berserk Mk.5 This Berserker operating system improves weapon handling by 20% and armor by 10%. The good thing about it is that it only has a 30 seconds cooldown.
4 BioDyne Berserk Mk.2 cyberpunk 2077BioDyne Berserk Mk.2 Rare version, that improves weapon handling by 25% and gives a 10% damage boost. Comes with 60 seconds cooldown

Here are the berserk mods that I recommend for Smart weapon build:

Mod name Description
devastating berserk cyberpunk 2077Devastating Berserk While Berserk is active, increases Crit Chance
chained berserk cyberpunk 2077Chained Berserk Reduces Berserk cooldown 
sharpened berserk cyberpunk 2077Sharpened Berserk While Berserk is active, increases Crit Damage
