So you started the game back in December 2020 – or not – and you still have no clue on how to get rich. I mean, i get it, the main quest line and all those side quests do give you some money, just not enough to buy that awesome $225.000 Rayfield Aerondight S9 “Guinevere” supercar, or even the $203.902 Nekomata rifle. Well, rest easy, today I will be showing you how to get rich in Cyberpunk 2077.
This is the easiest yet most overlooked method of obtaining eddies in Cyberpunk 2077. The game doesn’t really provide a good explanation into what these are, so I’m going to explain it very quickly.
Access points are found throughout the entire open world of Cyberpunk 2077 (they are marked with a red icon), and the main point is to jack into them and break the code.
Once inside, you’ll need to match the code matrix to one of the three sequence codes given on the right. Doing this will not only give you free components, but also eddies. I always go for the highest reward sequence code, as it is worth a lot more.
Some access points only give out a couple hundred eddies, while others – usually in more dangerous zones – can give up to thousands of eddies. Talk about some quick cash!
The Can method
If access points are not in your comfort zone, then you can always try the Can method. It sounds complex, but it is actually one of the easiest, yet slowest way to get rich in Cyberpunk 2077. And don’t even get me started on how boring it is.
The method is quite simple: you head over to any vending machine and buy as many cans as you can carry. Then you simply disassemble them into common and uncommon components and sell them to any store at a higher price.
Like I said, it is one of the slowest methods of getting rich in Cyberpunk 2077, but if you unlock the Mechanic and Workshop perks within the Crafting section of Technical Ability attribute, you’ll get more and more out of each can.
Char Incendiary Grenade Method
This is a great method for making around $500.000 eddies per hour, but it is not very good for new characters, as it requires level 12 in the Technical Ability attribute.
So what is the Char Incendiary Grenade Method? It is very similar to the Can method, as it is all about disassembling, but it requires more finesse.
You will need to head over to the Santo Domingo District and collect a crafting spec for the Char Incendiary Grenade. Once that is done, you will have to activate the Grease Monkey perk in the Technical Ability attribute. This perk will allow you to craft epic items, such as the grenade.
Crafting the grenade is quite easy, since it only requires uncommon and common components, which can be found pretty much everywhere. Then all you need to do is disassemble the grenade and you’ll get epic components which can be sold for a ridiculously high amount of money.
I would advise getting the Mechanic and Workshop perks as well, so you’ll get the most out of this method.
The Brancesi Painting
Guys, this is the real jewel of this article. It is the absolute best way to getting rich in Cyberpunk 2077, and also the quickest.
I found this by accident when doing a side quest, and it works like a charm. Simply put, all you need to do is get a painting by the name of Brancesi, 2021 and sell it at any dropbox machine for $4.000 eddies. That’s right, $4.000!
And the best part? For whatever reason – I think it might be some sort of glitch of the game – once you sell it for that huge amount of money, if you head back to the same dropbox, you will be able to buy it back for $5 eddies.
From there, you can sell it again for $4.000 eddies and repeat the process until you’re sufficiently rich or the dropbox runs out of money. If it is the latter reason, then just head on over to another dropbox machine and repeat the process.
Once you have had enough, just buy it again and keep the painting in your inventory until you’re in need of money again. Or keep it at home, so you don’t accidentally sell it without realizing.
But how and where can you get the painting? Well, first of all, you are going to have to finish the prologue and then head over to Santo Domingo District and find a side job that I’ll point down on the image below.
Complete the quest; there is no special trick to it and it is fairly simple, except for the 7 militech agents trying to kill you. So just bring some good gear and some even better weapons to deal with them.
At the end, there will be a capsule on the ground and the painting is inside it. And voilá, you have everything you need to get rich in Cyberpunk 2077 with this method.
And there you have it! I hope you find these methods helpful, they certainly were for me!
