Welcome to this friendly guide on how to hack vehicles in Cyberpunk 2077! In the latest update, version 2.0, new options and abilities have been introduced that allow you to take control of vehicles and perform some exciting stunts. Whether you're a seasoned player or new to the game, this guide will provide you with all the information you need to become an expert vehicle hacker. Let's dive right into it!
Step 1: Acquiring the necessary perk
To begin hacking vehicles, you'll need to acquire a specific perk from the skill tree. Open up your Character menu and select the Intelligence attribute. Unlock the Carhacker skill using one Perk Point. If you don't see the perk unlocked, make sure your Intelligence attribute is leveled up to at least level 4 using Attribute Points.
Step 2: Utilizing your netrunner abilities
Once you have the Carhacker perk unlocked, it's time to put your netrunner abilities into action. Remember, you can only hack vehicles that are in working condition. Open up your scanner and look for four quickhack options: Self-Destruct, Take Control, Floor It, and Emergency Brakes.
Step 3: Hacking options explained
Thanks to the updated Reflexes attribute in Cyberpunk 2077 2.0, you now have even more freedom when it comes to performing daring stunts with vehicles. By unlocking the Stuntjock perk from the Reflexes attribute, you gain the ability to jump out or slide out of a moving vehicle, which was not possible before this update.
Now, not only can you hack vehicles, but you can also perform incredible stunts while doing so. Imagine jumping out of a speeding car and watching it crash into your enemies, or sliding out of a vehicle and seamlessly transitioning into a gunfight. The possibilities are endless!
