When diving into the neon-lit streets of Night City in Cyberpunk 2077 version 2.0, you’re introduced to a revamped system for acquiring vehicles, managed by a character named El Capitan.
This system, called Autofixer, is introduced early on in the game’s prologue, where players receive a quick communication from El Capitan via email or text message, marking the start of your vehicular journey in the dystopian city.
Purchasing Vehicles in Cyberpunk 2077 (2.0)
Got your eyes on a glossy ride? Dive into the purchasing intricacies. Some rides aren’t just up for grabs. They demand a certain Street Cred level or other prerequisites before you claim ownership.
Once you’ve decided on a vehicle, ensure your virtual wallet is heavy with ‘eddies’. After the trade, your new ride takes its rightful place in your garage, awaiting your call to hit the streets. Cyberpunk 2.0’s expansion has also dabbled in warfare on wheels. So, if you notice symbols of ammo or missiles next to some cars, you’re in for a combat-ready ride.
But what if I told you, not every vehicle carries a price tag? That’s right, Cyberpunk 2.0 has sprinkled opportunities for the keen player to get their hands on free rides. From the classic Hella EC-D 1360 to the fierce Quadra Type-66 “Hoon”, your choices are abundant.
To bag these gratis wheels, stay alert for quests like “Heroes” or “Life During Wartime”. Some are side gigs, but the rewards are hefty.
Street Cred and Its Importance
You might ask, why the fuss about Street Cred? Think of it as your key to the city, unlocking a world of vehicles. Not just about being popular, it reflects your standing as a respected mercenary in Night City.
The more challenges you overcome, like quests, gigs, or even wiping out some notorious criminals, the higher your Cred soars. If you’re ever in doubt, your scanner becomes your best friend, letting you gauge the potential Street Cred from any mission or individual.
Courier Missions and Special AutoFixer Stock
For the players who’ve ventured into the Phantom Liberty expansion, a new horizon opens. Meet Muamar “El Capitan” Reyes, your gateway to Courier Missions. These missions revolve around transporting specific vehicles to Reyes’ garages.
Dedication has its rewards. As you stack up these missions, not only do you earn discounts, but the Autofixer inventory expands, showcasing weaponized variants and more. Just a hint: Look out for a bullet symbol, it’s a nod to weaponized vehicles. As the mission tally rises, new vehicle categories roll out for you to pick from.
