How to fly in Cyberpunk 2077

You can obtain many new abilities through future technology in Cyberpunk 2077, but flight isn’t one of them. However, there is a fun trick that you can perform in the game to send yourself flying in the air.

The futuristic world of Cyberpunk 2077 is filled with various technological marvels. This includes a few flying vehicles as well, but sadly you can’t make use of them. V is only able to fly during the main quest, and you can’t upgrade yourself with the ability of flight through new tech.

This is disappointing, but luckily one Cyberpunk player has discovered a way for you to fly through the streets of Night City. This will allow you to reach new heights as you explore the map. All it takes are the right Cyberware pieces, and a little ingenuity.

How to fly in Cyberpunk 2077

This trick was discovered by Reddit user u/Heimgang, who posted a clip of it in the Cyberpunk 2077 subreddit. First you need to make sure that you didn’t punch or kill Fingers. This process will not work if you did either of those things, and you’ll have to start a new playthrough.

Visit the Ripperdoc in Westbrook, and purchase the Epic variants of the Fortified Ankles. This piece of Cyberware will allow V to hover in midair. Make sure you don’t purchase the regular variants, since they will not grant you this ability. 

Then you need to visit a get yourself a Kerenzikov implant from any Ripperdoc in the city. This grants you the ability to slow down time and jump great distances. Both of these items will get you halfway into the air, and then you need to perform a simple trick.

Here’s how you can fly:

  1. Aim down your gun’s sights.
  2. Spam the moving forward button (Up on controller + W on PC).
  3. Hold the jump button (X/A on PlayStation/XBOX and Space on PC).

This will send V flying across Night City, and you’ll gain access to brand new vantage points that you couldn’t reach before. You can see this trick in the clip below.

That’s all you need to do to make V fly in Cyberpunk 2077. It’s all about precision and if you’re not careful then you can fall, and get yourself injured or killed. This is a fun technique to get yourself onto previously inaccessible areas within the game’s map.

The only downside is that there’s really no incentive to getting to these higher areas. You won’t find any hidden easter eggs or secrets there, so ultimately you won’t really get anything substantial from this trick. You should just enjoy the view.

Hopefully one day CD Projekt Red will implement some new features that add more impressive content to the skyscrapers, such as collectibles or paths. If they do, then we’ll be sure to update you.
