What is Street Cred in Cyberpunk 2077? Associate designer at CD Projekt Red Kyle Rowley says that Cyberpunk 2077 will have two forms of XP that players can level up with. The first is described as core XP, which can be earned through completing main missions, the second is called Street Cred, and can only be earned through competing side missions.
The idea that main missions and side missions will be treated with such a degree of separation is interesting, and suggests that side missions play an even bigger role in Cyberpunk 2077 than they did in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
So, what exactly can you do with Street Cred in Cyberpunk 2077? Think of it as a reputation for your services. By completing tasks for gangs, factions, and other Cyberpunk 2077 characters, your reputation will increase, so more people are aware of your name and the services you provide. Certain Cyberpunk 2077 gear can be used to passively increase the amount of Street Cred you earn, such as the Samurai Jacket.
How to spend Street Cred in Cyberpunk 2077
This XP can be used to access new vendors and Fixers, who are a type of quest giver in Cyberpunk 2077, so you’ll earn better contracts and become the go-to-guy due to your extensive portfolio of successfully completing side missions. Of course, there’s always a drawback, as the bigger your name, the more of a target you become.
