Cyberpunk 2077 Map Markers
Game: Cyberpunk 2077
Content Type: Gaming Guides


An open-world RPG game or now, Cyberpunk 2077 can certainly be proud of the scale and density of its setting, the Night City. The Night City comes with an impressive map that features anything from interesting encounters on the streets, to interesting venues, to side-quest starters, to vendors and cyberware ripperdocs. There really is a point in ditching the NCART or Delamain cab and just taking a stroll through the city and experiencing all it has to offer.

With so many quests to pursue in your already overwhelmed tracker, it’s often hard to decide which one to pick next. When there is something around every corner (and then more) and you aren’t about to go for a very time-consuming task of 100% completion, what are you to do in order to not miss out on anything fun or important? That’s why we prepared this guide for you! Here we will offer you a detailed survey of what different general POIs on Cyberpunk 2077‘s map are and what each one of them can do to contribute to your rewarding playthrough experience.

Warning: This guide is based on the in-progress information available before the official release of the game. The guide will be updated as more information becomes available.

Cyberpunk 2077 Map Markers Guide Night City Exploration

We will be breaking these map markers into four categories: Quests, Services, Venues, and Activities to help you navigate our list.

Obviously, if you want to concern yourself with action and valuable loot, you can look to the first category for your options. The second category is all about stores, repairs, skill training, and modifications to add special rewards for exploring new areas. We don’t know much about restaurants and other venues just yet, but we are sure they will offer some exciting secrets of their own. Finally, you will encounter a lot of niche activities and discoverables within the Night City, and we will tell you what we know about them so far.

Let’s take a look at what Night City has to offer!

Completing quests is a great way to earn Experience and Street Cred, gain loot, and meet some influential people. This is an essential part of the RPG experience, and this is the best way to level your character and their equipment as you progress your main story and venture into more dangerous locations within the city.

Yet, as soon as you meet Fixers you might get overwhelmed with how quickly the map around you starts to get populated with side quests. If you decide to pursue them all, you are likely to be at it for days before you can go back to the main quest, so it will likely be more enjoyable to pick jobs you enjoy that provide you with most rewards upon completion.

These are your main questline markers. If you are extremely engaged by the main story you can skip a lot of map content around you, but it will likely provide for a less engaging and complex playthrough, so we do not recommend acquiring a tunnel vision when it comes to the main quest, however exciting it might be, and however unperturbed you are by the challenge level increase caused by your low character level.

Yet, if we can’t persuade you to explore some other exciting activities the city has to offer, there is always a lower difficulty option you can pick to be less distracted from the main story.

Benefits: The main storyline lies at the heart of what Cyberpunk 2077 has to offer. The massive diversity of player choice and its consequences, and the cinematic, dramatic, action-packed quests and cutscenes alone will likely be enough to make this game’s experience something truly exciting and memorable.

These are the side quests with more developed storylines than the one-off quests which you can take on and progress alongside your main quests. Some of these will send you to dangerous areas and buildings you would have never visited otherwise.

These are more personal than more quick side jobs you will see below, and they will often involve unusual tasks and complicated situations, with choices that will help you forge powerful friendships and alliances, or make some formidable enemies. If you enjoy Cyberpunk 2077‘s characters and their stories, these will make a wonderful supplement to your main story quests.

Benefits: Not only will you get yourself some rare loot, Experience, Street Cred, and powerful allies, but you can also affect outcomes of some of the quests in the main story. These side quests have a more personal touch and complex progression, and many of them are quite involved and memorable.

We don’t know a lot about the following types of quests yet, but some of their titles should be self-explanatory in explaining what you will need to do if you decide to take these jobs on.

You can expect a little bit of everything here, from helping NCPD to take out some bothersome gang members, raiding enemy buildings, to fairly straightforward retrieval tasks involving valuable items or sensitive data, to tracking down rogue AI taxis.

There is a lot to choose from and more often than not you will be paid for your work quite well.

  • Gun For Hire
  • Search And Recovery
  • Thievery
  • Agent Saboteur
  • SOS
  • Merc Needed
  • Special Delivery
  • Assault In Progress

Benefits: Likely high payout, Street Cred, and rare loot!

These are a series of bounty missions, a kind of mini-bosses outfitted with powerful tech and little sense of morality. How come? Well, these CyberPsychos represent what happens when cyberware modifications go overboard, taking their user past the line drawn between a human and the machine at the cost of their sense of humanity. At this point, there is no reasoning with their barely-human brains, which makes them rather unpleasant to encounter if you are not prepared to do so.

Benefits: You can get plenty of good loot off of these powerful opponents, as well as a hefty payment for their heads should you decide to invest your time in clearing Night City from their dangerous presence.

We will add more information as it becomes available.

These surgeons specialize in selling and installing cyberware implants. While you will be able to perform some simple cyberware modifications by yourself in the field, you will have to visit ripperdocs for installing cyberware into your body.

As you progress through the Night City you will make more connections with powerful groups and people and will meet more exclusive ripperdocs. Of course, some of them will be able to offer you less… legal augmentations. For the right price.

Benefits: Discovering new ripperdocs means discovering new exciting cyberware and unlocking quick access locations for when you need to swap some augmentations.

We will add more information as it becomes available.

Unlike Attributes and Perks, Skills in Cyberpunk 2077 are leveled through direct use. If you want to get better with your gun, the best way is to go out and find some targets. Yet, while you can speed this process up a bit by leveling your Attributes (confirmed) and through some of the Perks (speculative information), you can also speed this process along with some favors and some coin.

Trainers of the Night City are experts in their skills, and if you offer them something in return they can share some of their knowledge with you.

Benefits: Speed along skill leveling, especially in situations when unlocking new levels will help you level them faster by yourself.

This category will be a little empty for the time being, but we can mention a few activities we know will make it into the game.

First is car racing, which will involve a variety of tracks within the Night City, with a climbing difficulty of opponents (matched by higher bets, of course!). For people like Nomads this past-time goes a little beyond just being a hobby — traversing rough terrain on modified vehicles and outrunning undesirable opponents is pretty much their lifestyle and you can expect the task of racing them to be quite challenging.

Then, you can expect some other niche activities like bare-knuckle boxing fights. If brute display of power is your thing, you can expect to find some like-minded individuals on the streets or within gangs like the Animals.

Exploration landmarks, including some unique murals, are hidden all around the Night City. Murals is an important way for the gangs to express themselves and mark their territory, especially for gangs like the Valentinos. Yet, they also recount particularly iconic events in the city’s history and people whose achievements and sacrifices are deeply respected by their peers.

Not all bullets in Cyberpunk 2077 have to target living opponents. Show off your ranged skill and have some fun by challenging some gang members to a shooting range. Gangs like the 6th Street are big fans of all things guns and will gladly watch you try and out-do them on their personal target range. Don’t let your guard down — almost anyone in the Night City can get themselves a gun, but not many can boast of being among the best.
