During Act 1, you will acquire your first apartment in Megabuilding H10. This place acts as your home base in Cyberpunk 2077. On the game’s initial release there wasn’t much you were able to do in here, and the only other apartment you could get was a Luxury Penthouse only accessible during the ‘Path of Glory’ epilogue. Patch 1.5 fixes this, not only adding four new apartment options, but also allowing the initial H10 unit to be customized.
Below we will go over the functions of these apartments, how to customize your initial apartment, and how to unlock four new ones.
Your apartment works like a central hub, and there are a few things you can do in there. The stash inside is your storage, where you can put most of your items. You can sleep in the bed to skip 6 hours. There is also a bathroom, set with a mirror, shower, and a toilet — the mirror can be used to change your appearance.
You will also find a computer, television, radio, and vending machine within your unit.
The computer can be used to check V’s email and browse the Net.
The television allows you to watch various programs.
The radio lets you listen to either the news or music.
The vending machine functions the same as the ones found throughout Night City.
There are two pets you can have in your apartment: a cat named Nibbles, and an Iguana you can hatch from an egg. Finally, you will gain memorabilia decorations after completing certain jobs. Note that the pets and memorabilia are only available in V’s initial apartment.
Getting a New Apartment
If you want to get a new apartment, the first thing you’ll have to do is complete the ‘Playing for Time’ quest. Once that’s done, you can get a new apartment in one of two ways — you can either go to the new apartment you want in-person to rent it, or you can rent one through the computer at your first apartment.
If using a computer, you can find the apartments in the EZEstates site.
From here, you will see a list of the four apartments you can rent:
Something to note: even though it says these apartments are for rent, you will only need to pay a one-time fee to own the new apartment.

Customizing Your First Apartment
