Looking for all the iconic weapons in Cyberpunk 2077? There are five types of weapons in Cyberpunk 2077; common, uncommon, rare, epic, legendary- with iconic weapons also falling under the other five tiers. Although you can craft weapons using blueprints, or find them dotted around the vast, congested Cyberpunk 2077 map, iconic weapons are a little different.

Most guns can be discarded, pulled apart for scraps, or sold to vendors – but iconic weapons are the only type that can be upgraded throughout the game, constantly adding to their damage output, instead of trading them in. The cost in materials to upgrade these weapons escalates quickly, so if you’re investing time into upgrades, then we suggest scrapping every gun you acquire instead of selling it. Also invest in the crafting perk tree, which hosts some of the best perks in Cyberpunk 2077; from 10% off the cost of upgrading, to harvesting more components when scrapping – and by using this skill frequently you’ll become more proficient in crafting, which has extra reward benefits.

Iconic weapons can be found in specific fixed locations – usually by completing a side mission – or from grateful allies, unlike random drops from the other tiers. They have their own unique abilities, making them highly sought after. Luckily for you, we’ve found a few iconic weapons in Cyberpunk 2077 on our journey so far, including the dildo club – you heard that right. Just a note that this guide contains story spoilers for quest content where you’ll find these guns.

Cyberpunk 2077 iconic weapons

Dying Night

This is the first iconic weapon you receive very early on in the game by the vendor manning the gun shop in V’s megabuilding.

Kongou

This powerful pistol uses ricochet technology and has three attachment slots – scope, muzzle, and mod. It’s well worth picking up due to its good all-round stats including low recoil. You can nab it during the heist to steal the Relic, in Yorinobu Arasaka’s bedroom, on his nightstand.

Widow Maker

A tech rifle that fires two projectiles per shot, dealing chemical damage with an increased chance to apply poison. You can collect this beauty from Nash, the guy who stole from Panam. Follow the quest line after act two, arriving at the Afterlife at Johnny’s suggestion, Rogue sets you on a quest involving Panam and the Nomads. Panam wants to take out Nash, which sounds like a great idea, as you’ll acquire the Widow Maker once he’s taken out.

Overwatch

A power sniper rifle that has quick reload speed and can be compared to the Grad-type snipers. It’s hard hitting with a high critical hit chance, and headshot damage multiplier, with a fairly decent scope. This is another iconic weapon you can pick up as part of Panam’s quest chain, after she helps you abduct Hellman in the main story, she’ll call you to ask for your help in rescuing Saul – receiving the Overwatch as a reward.

Sir John Phallustiff

Sigh. A blunt one-handed club shaped like a penis. High DPS and bonus physical damage make this a sought after… device? Here’s how to find the dildo club in Cyberpunk 2077.

FENRIR

A power SMG with a bite. It deals thermal damage and applies the burn Cyberpunk 2077 effect status, as well as boasting three attachment slots. You can find Fenrir after defeating the goons in the Sacrum Profanum/Losing My Religion quest. Once you’ve freed the prisoner, you should be able to find the iconic submachine gun close to his holding cell.

LIZZIE

A tech pistol with an unremovable non-lethal mod and incredible DPS. The pistol is found during the Automatic Love quest – head through Judy’s basement and find the table with the weapon to your left.

COTTONMOUTH

A blunt, but non-lethal, one-handed club which deals electrical and chemical damage with a fair chance of applying poison and shock. It only has one melee mod slot. You’ll have the chance to pick up this melee weapon during the Space In Between quest. All you have to do is find Fingers’ bedroom, you should find the club on his bed.

LA CHINGONA DORADA

A power pistol with reduced reload times, a higher chance to burn and stun enemies, and an extra mod slot. You can obtain La Chingona Dorada at any point after completing the Heroes quest. The pistol is found on the table alongside the other offerings.

DOOM DOOM

A power weapon capable of dismembering limbs albeit with a slight increase to recoil and bullet spread. Compared to other power weapons, Doom Doom fires four rounds per shot with increased damage and rate of fire. You can find this weapon by looting Dum Dum during the Second Conflict quest. If you happened to kill Dum Dum during an earlier quest, this weapon will not be available to you.

SATORI

A katana that deals reduced base damage but has a high critical damage multiplier. This sword can be acquired early on in the game during The Heist mission. When T-Bug opens the penthouse’s balcony door, you can find Satori inside the vehicle on the AV landing pad.

SKIPPY

A smart pistol with a motor mouth, this weapon will scale to your level and talk to you during combat. Head to Heywood, Vista Del Rey to find the pistol laying on the ground. Pick it up and Skippy will ask you to choose an operating mode: Stone-Cold Killer or Puppy-Loving Pacifist. Stone-Cold Killer automatically aims for the head, whereas Puppy-Loving Pacifist targets limbs instead. It’s highly recommended you go for Puppy-Loving Pacifist as Skippy will automatically change the operating mode after 50 kills, leaving it stuck on the powerful Stone-Cold Killer mode.

MOX

A power shotgun with a low reload speed, but features reduced bullet spread while aiming. You can acquire this shotgun after the Automatic Love quest if Judy decides to leave Night City. If you manage to romance Judy, she will end up giving you the shotgun after the Pyramid Song quest.

CHAOS

A tech pistol that features a random critical hit chance, damage type, and status-effect on each magazine. The weapon will completely change these variables once reloaded. You can find this weapon on Royce’s corpse, meaning you’ll have to kill him during The Pickup quest.

That’s all the Cyberpunk 2077 iconic weapons we know about so far, although be sure to check back as we wind our way through Night City’s map and locate more of these unique Cyberpunk 2077 weapons.
