Cars and bikes are the best way to travel by Night City, especially if you want to be fast and enjoy beautiful views in Cyberpunk 2077.
Although V has his car, you may want something faster or more stylish, which means that you will have to buy a new car or motorcycle to enjoy it. But if you have little money, you have the option of stealing a vehicle.
Cyberpunk 2077 – How to buy cars and motorbikes or steal vehicles
Night City is big and if you want to get around quickly, you need a car or motorcycle. Of course you can always steal a vehicle, but if you want a reliable vehicle always available, you will have to buy one.
You will occasionally have the opportunity to purchase a car or motorcycle in Cyberpunk 2077 through brokers. To unlock these opportunities, you have to reach a specific level of Street Reputation, after reaching that, you have to visit a specific part of Night City, like Westbrook.
Once you get there, you have to wait for the broker to call you about the vehicle you want to buy. It may take some time to call, so take care of other activities until that happens.
After the call, go to the location with the vehicle and if you have enough Eddies, you can buy it. Don’t worry if you don’t have the money yet, the car will be waiting for you.
How to unlock cars or motorcycles in Cyberpunk 2077
Not all vehicles in Cyberpunk 2077 can be purchased and you will need to unlock vehicles when exploring the world or finishing certain side activities.
When it comes to unlocking vehicles through optional work, keep in mind that previous actions can block access to a specific mission.
If you send the body to Viktor after the mission The Heist, for example, you will not be able to do the optional work Heroes, which would allow you to unlock Nazaré motorcycle.
As soon as you unlock or purchase a vehicle, it will automatically be added to your vehicle list and you will be able to call it whenever you want. When you call a vehicle it will appear without any damage previously suffered!
Stealing cars and motorbikes in Cyberpunk 2077
If you don’t feel like buying or unlocking a car or motorcycle in Cyberpunk 2077, you can always steal.
The counterpart is that you will not be able to call this vehicle whenever you want. Eventually, you will have to leave it somewhere and it will disappear forever, probably because it was stolen by someone else.
Still, if you want a vehicle and you don’t care if you’re going to lose it or if you just want to try something expensive that you don’t have money for, stealing cars is what will help you.
It is possible to steal cars parked and in use, but the method for doing so is different.
If you want to steal a parked car, you need a certain level of Technical Ability, associated with the value of the car. The more car the car is, the higher the level of Technical Ability you will need to steal it.
Stealing cars that are being used requires stealing the car when the driver is stopped at a traffic light or blocking his route with a vehicle or obstacle.
In addition, you will need a certain level in the Body attribute to get the driver out of the car and again, this depends on the value of the car that drives around Night City.
You can kill the driver by shooting through the window and in the case of bulletproof cars, the driver may be scared and get out of the car, even though it is a bulletproof vehicle.
You will probably attract the police during the robbery, but get in the car and accelerate to escape. Good luck and stay safe in Night City!
