  1. I prefer to render assassination targets unconscious and put them in the trunk of my fixer's car to be (presumably) tortured horribly at a later date. Some of them really deserve it
  2. Did you know there's a button by a bridge downtown that turns all the lights in the street off? Take that, Valentine house-builders
  3. The level of detail in Night City is above and beyond anything Rockstar has achieved so far.
  4. - hold L1 while targeting an enemy, select reboot optics. If you don’t have that, go inventory > cyberware > cyberdeck > equip reboot optics. It’s a default starting hack - up on d-pad for health, sometimes the game doesn’t register face button presses the first time so I always double tap to heal or reload - health consumables like you would find in the menu screen aren’t USABLE during combat. You equip Bounce Backs or MaxDocs from the inventory screen and use them in game using ^ - maelstrom are known for netrunner attacks. While you’re getting hacked there should be a subtle orange threat indicator. If you have the Ping quickhack, netrunner outlines will be orange on-screen as opposed to reg enemies who are red. It’s a good idea to take them out first as they can hack you whenever a camera or enemy has line of sight - if they do manage to hack you, spam up on d-pad to heal until the damage over time stops. MaxDocs are better for this than bounce backs
  5. well yeah but not everyone is as cool as us. although I skip that perk because it makes it hard to level up Athletics. Level cap is 50 but you can still accumulate XP once you hit it, to develop the skills you don't use and get more perk points.
  6. Conversely I prefer a Cool and Reflex-focused build, using throwing knives at this point. Formerly I was a revolver guy but honestly the noise was doing my head in. The Overture is the loudest thing in the world. If you do go the blades or katana route, Cold Blood has a lot of perks that stack movement speed and crit chance and damage reduction, so the faster and quicker you kill people the faster you're able to move around and kill people. So I have Body 12, Reflexes 18, Tech 18, Cool 16, Int 5, and I have a couple attribute points I have left to allocate. Now when I throw a knife into someone's head it either instantly kills them but if it doesn't then it blinds them, staggers them, and applies bleeding and poison. So they stand there clutching their head for a little bit and then just die horribly. A lot of people use Sandevistan in these types of build but it feels like cheating and I like hacking cameras and devices etc so I have a Legendary deck and some legendary and epic quickhacks. Even at level 5 my short circuit knocks most enemies out in one go. I tend to only use hacks if I'm reloading or all my knives are on cooldown. There are a lot of ways to play though - I reallocated all my perks into Annihilation last night so I could grind shotgun XP having maxed out my handgun and blade skills. Shotgun builds are hilarious, it turns out. Once I've maxed that out I'll do Assault. It's good to max out levels in skill trees you don't even use because you get more perk points, but that is more of an endgame thing. Also do not forget that you get a flat +20% XP buff if you sleep at your apartment, but it disappears if you fast travel. So if you're about to go do some side quests or main quests it's a good idea to take a nap before you head out.
  7. i have never even read something on there as far as I can remember, it’s the principle
  8. Fucking livid. Kotaku just ran a lazy piece about a Phantom Liberty fan theory based off of a reddit post from a few days ago, and they credited the redditor. I made the exact same post 39 days ago, and I saw the other guy's post a few days ago and called him out on it. He admitted he saw my post in PM but went ahead and posted his own because mine got no engagement. Cunts. It was my fucking idea, and now I get no meaningless internet points.
  9. Having recently replayed the launch PS4 version on PS5 I can indeed confirm that it was shit. Everything that makes the game delightful was still in it, but it was almost unplayable. I think we have some rose colored glasses in here. That said it is still my GOAT, the kind of game I dreamed of playing as a kid, and the next-gen updated versions are incredible. Can not wait for (paid) DLC
  10. Throwing knives are basically cheating once you have Apply Blinding on Headshot, poison, and the perk that instantly puts the knife back in your hand if you get a Crit or a headshot. Can’t believe I never invested in Cool before
  11. You do go to a penthouse where a Soviet diplomat is living in a late Regina gig, although there's no guarantee it's the same building. The fact that the real Bryce Mosley's (please stand up) corpse is tucked away in a part of the city where you have no reason to go to, ever, is enough for me never to be surprised by the random easter eggs in this game. That in itself is a fun game - Easter Egg or Cut Content?
  12. Hey I just discovered a thing for any throwing knife enjoyers on here - the kunai (iirc) mod that improves weapon attack speed, and the associated perks, reduce the cooldown on thrown knives. This is especially useful for Blue Fang, which has a 10sec cooldown
  13. night (city) and day cheers now I just need a quantum computer
  14. I'll live without that mod, because I'd only ever be able to do anything that needed doing between the hours of 10pm-1am. I'm desperate for a 1:1 time/clock/day-night cycle however. Gets frustrating to set out at 9pm to throw knives at Scavs for several hours, only for day to break before you get really stuck in.
