Cyberpunk 2077 fan returns Rebecca’s gun to her apartment
The player traveled over 4 km through Night City to return the weapon to its rightful owner.
Cyberpunk 2077’s resurgence is largely due to the success of its animated spin-off, Edgerunners. Fans old and new have fallen in love with the Netflix show’s cast of characters, so much so that many are once again heading to Night City just to hunt down all the references added to them in the latest update. And now a fan is taking that adoration to a new level.
A Cyberpunk 2077 player dragged a mounted weapon through the entirety of Night City, all in a touching tribute to fan-favorite Edgerunner Rebecca. Reddit user SpaceKnightLife transported Rebecca’s machine gun from where they found it in Pacifica, to her apartment in Watson. Even better, they did it entirely on foot, manually walking about 4.7 km across the map, so the weapon could find its rightful owner.
To really get a sense of the effort that went into this feat, I tried it myself. First, to get the gun in the first place, you need to bait a guard from a melee gun shop in the South Pacific for a fight. Once hostile, it will hunt the bad guy and attack. However, you must be sure not to kill him on the inside the store, as this will only make the weapon disappear. Once he’s down, equip the machine gun, and it’s all yours – sort of.
Because it’s a heavy weapon, you can’t store it just anywhere. All you can do is wear it temporarily and drop it when you switch to another weapon. Oh, and you also can’t run while you’re dragging it, so you’re brought back to V’s walking speed. So that’s exactly what SpaceKnightLife did – transport it, on foot, from side to side the other from the map.
It’s worth noting that the gun didn’t disappear for me when I traveled fast, so it’s still an option if you don’t like long backpacking. However, I guess it just shows SpaceKnightLife’s dedication to the character, giving his weapon a procession around town before bringing it home.
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is available to watch on Netflix now.
