In Cyberpunk 2077, a variety of vehicles can be purchased, but a budget-conscious gamer can also get multiple vehicles for free with a little work.
While there are quite a few rides in Cyberpunk 2077 that will cost V a penny, there are also several that can be obtained for free. Unless players have used the unlimited money bug in Cyberpunk, they will probably want to spend their money on body enhancements.
Many of the free rides look great even compared to the paid options, so here’s how to find and get them.
Players will win this motorcycle that once belonged to Jackie in the main story Life during Wartime. Fortunately, it’s nearly impossible to miss this one, so players can likely guarantee themselves at least one free ride.
Porsche 911 II Turbo
The Porsche 911 is one of the few licensed real-life vehicles V can get in the game. It used to belong to Johnny Silverhand, played by Keanu Reeves, and players can get it for free. During the Chippin ‘In mission, players will eventually have the option to put their weapon away and say, “I was lucky today.” Once V does this, players will receive a keycard, which they can use to unlock a shipping container filled with Johnny’s old stuff, including the car.
Colby CX410 Butte
The Colby is a secret vehicle, hidden in the desert. There’s not much close by that will take players to find him normally, but heading in that direction will give V a sweet new ride for free. In Badlands, there is a desert film set. The vehicle is there.
This is the fastest vehicle in Cyberpunk 2077, and it’s free. During the main Ghost Town mission, if players choose to fight the Wraiths with Panam, there will be a shipping container right after the fight. Look for the mines; the shipping container must be there.
This vehicle is won through street fights. All players have to do is beat their opponent during the Beat on the Brat: The Glen side job. The job will bet V’s $ 4,000 against the roses on his vehicle. Win the fight and the car is V’s. Just make sure you get some good melee arms first, like Gorilla Arms, to ensure a quick victory.
Street fights are one of the best things about Cyberpunk 2077 for players who love hand-to-hand combat.
Delamain No. 21
The Epistrophy side concerts will give players access to a variety of these taxis. Players have to chase down seven taxis that have been infected and dismantle them. After completing the entire quest chain, players will have access to the car for themselves.
Quadra Turbo-R V-Tech
Head to Glen in Heywood and enjoy the Life’s Work concert. After completing this mission, wait three days in the game and then complete the Sex on Wheels side job.
Arco de Nazare Itsumade
Head to the southeast part of Rancho Coronado and look for a gun shop. Get The Highwayman side quest and complete the entire chain. This will get V an Itsumade for free.
Bestia Thorton Mackinaw
Complete The Beast in Me side jobs with Claire, and she will give V a massive free vehicle called the Beast.
Quadra Type-66 Cthulhu
During the aforementioned side missions with Claire, players will have the option of letting Sampson live or letting him die. If players let him live, Sampson will give V a free Cthulhu. If he dies, players will have to spend 76,000 eddie to get one of these vehicles.
Thornton Galena Rattler
If players choose a nomadic life path in Cyberpunk 2077, players will get this vehicle for free after completing the side quest These Boots Are Made for Walking.
Hella EC-D I360
If the name of this vehicle sounds familiar, it is because it is V’s starter vehicle in Cyberpunk 2077. In Act 2, V will lose the vehicle, but there is a way to get it back. If players get bored in Cyberpunk 2077 with the main story, all they need to do is a quick side quest to get their old vehicle back. In the side quest These Boots Are Made for Walking, activated by the AI inside the car, V will get some coordinates for a dump. Inside the trash piles, V’s original vehicle will be waiting, fixed and ready to go.
Players will have three options at this point: take the vehicle back, give the vehicle to the person who fixed it, or pay the person who fixed it enough money to fix another vehicle.
Cyberpunk 2077 is available now on PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One, with the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions arriving in 2021.
