With so many extra weapons to choose from in the new Cyberpunk DLC from CD Projekt Red, we’ve discovered one that you can get with basically no effort that offers up not just a solid gun but allows for a fair bit of customization, too.

A Tier 5 Iconic Power Assault Rifle, the Kyubi X-MOD2 can be found in Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty’s new Dogtown district.
