Cyberpunk 2077 Cyberpsycho sightings – every location detailed

Every location and requirement for unlocking all of the Cyberpsycho sightings

These people are not Cyberpsychos in Cyberpunk 2077, but may be people who called in the sightings.

At some point in Cyberpunk 2077, you’ll be asked by a fixer to hunt down 17 Cyberpsychos. Regina is an ex-reporter who is concerned about certain incidents occurring throughout Night City. In order to restore some semblance of peace, you’ll need to track down and eliminate all 17 Cyberpsychos.

These aren’t just bounty missions, as there’s usually something to recover in the area as well. You may find an email nestled within a computer’s inbox, or a shard hidden in the area. No matter what you pick up, you’ll have to send the data to Regina to finish that part of the Cyberpsycho job.

This guide will walk you through all the locations for each one of the Cyberpsycho sightings, the requirements needed to unlock them in each area, and give you some general tips and tricks for dealing with each one. Before you begin, it’s probably worth checking out the best Cyberpunk 2077 builds, equipping the your best weapons, perhaps even looking over some of the perks while you’re at it. We hope you’re all prepared Samurai, because this job’s going to take a while.
