A giant sandbox game like Cyberpunk 2077 is full of luxurious and expensive stuff such as cars, bikes, weapons, cyberwear, and more. But it is no fun if you don’t have the means to enjoy them. So here are some tips on how to earn eddies fast and get the most out of Cyberpunk 2077.

How to earn Eurodollars faster in Cyberpunk 2077

Lots of this process will entirely depend on you and the activities and hobbies you engage in with Cyberpunk 2077. But these are the best methods of getting more Eurodollars.

Loot and sell junk

As has been the case with most RPGs since the PS3/Xbox 360 days, Cyberpunk 2077 is rammed with rooms, trash, boxes, and crates that you can scavenge to acquire junk. Some loot will be worth next to nothing, some will get you a few hundred Eurodollars. Always be on the lookout.

Sell enemies’ gear

If sifting through trash doesn’t appeal to you, then going on a murderous rampage and killing everyone who seems like a bad guy could be the way. All enemies will be sporting some kind of armor and a variety of weapons. Simply collect their stuff, take it to the nearest vendor, leave the bloodstained equipment, and collect your money.

Complete the main campaign

Unless you have strong issues with Cyberpunk 2077’s campaign, then you’ll inevitably be working towards finishing the game. The good thing about that is that you’ll naturally be earning money along the way for completing gigs, which is always something to never lose sight of.

Complete side gigs

Similar to our last golden piece of advice, side missions or gigs are there to expand upon Night City’s world, and lore, and provide you with more opportunities to make yourself stronger. Doing so can help you earn yourself some more Eurodollars along the way.
