Information about the new melee weapon types added in Cyberpunk 2077’s Edgerunners Update (Patch 1.6), including where to find these new melee weapons.
New Melee Weapons in the Cyberpunk 2077 Edgerunners Update
Along with three new Gigs ([Concrete Cage Trap], [Desperate Measures], [Nasty Hangeover]), a new Side Job ([Over the Edge]), the [Roach Race] arcade game, the Wardrobe feature and various Edgerunner-themed easter eggs, the Edgerunners Update (Patch 1.6) added several new types of ranged weapons and melee weapons to the game. The new ranged weapons added include the following:
|Claws||Axe||A serrated axe, fairly slow, but good damage. Similar to the Razor, stat-wise.|
|Cut-O-Matic||Chainsword||A slow, noisy, but powerful weapon that can be revved up for more carnage. The Emperor protects.|
|Neurotoxin Knife||Knife||Low damage, fast, and throwable, usually capable of inflicting poison and/or bleed debuffs.|
|Punknife||Knife||Low damage, fast and throwable. Very similar to the Neurotoxin Knife, albeit without the debuffs.|
|Razor||Machete||A heavy one-handed sword, slow, but good damage. Similar to the Claw, stat-wise.|
Once the Edgerunner’s Update (Patch 1.6) has been installed, these weapons will propagate throughout Night City. You can acquire them from defeated enemies, loot them from containers, or buy them from shops. Like other weapons, they come in the standard rarities, although if there are crafting schematics or legendary variants of these weapons, we haven’t found them yet.
