Players have a lot of freedom when it comes to their preferred build in Cyberpunk 2077. These broken builds will make quick work of enemies.

Apart from being one of the best examples of Raytracing in a video game, Cyberpunk 2077 also excels in its gameplay department. As an RPG, it presents players with a vast selection of gameplay styles. It can even rival Elder Scrolls games when it comes to build variety. The beauty in games that have such a gameplay structure is that it allows players to create some breathtaking builds.

Cyberpunk 2077is no stranger to overpowered builds because of what the developers allowed and what the players could tinker with. So regardless of how many playthroughs they have had, players will find strength in these builds necessary to take on a megacorporation like Arasaka.

Contagion, or poison hackers, were all the rage before update 1.5 due to their effortless killing prowess. Fans of the old build will be pleased to know, however, that Contagion is still overpowered. It just went from a scale of 11 to 10 because of the balance changes in patch 1.5. The gameplay is still the same.

Players start with Breach Protocol, then Ping, and then Contagion against squads of enemies. After that, it's time to sit back and then watch their health get drained collectively. Against single-targets, Short Circuit or Suicide works well. Cameras are also great here as they let players stay hidden.

For the premier stealth build in Cyberpunk 2077, players need not look any further than this one. It functions like a hitman who shoots enemies at the back of their heads using silenced pistols or revolvers. This does require some tactical skill, positioning, and a bit of patience, but it's slick and savvy.

To make sneaking more smooth, players can take advantage of the Big Sleep daemon, which shuts down all cameras in an area. After that, it's a matter of picking off enemies one by one. Make sure to land headshots all the time.

For those looking for a more straightforward mode of gameplay, then this build — which combines three bloodthirsty words, will more than satisfy anyone's bloodlust. The idea is simple; players just walk up to enemy groups and rip out a fat and healthy volley of shotgun pellets.

All the passive and triggered effects from the Annihilation perk tree will ensure that players either tank hits well or move so fast that the enemies don't have time to respond. It also just so happens that shotgun damage increases based on movement speed in the Annihilation perks.

This build is the perfect compromise for those who still want to shoot enemies and hack but don't want their overall damage output getting neutered. It's all thanks to the Short Circuit quickhack. The Legendary version of this quickhack deals massive damage.

It deals even more damage if the enemies get hit with a Crit attack. Paired with weapons that shoot fast and shoot many rounds (such as Smart weapons), then the Short Circuit will make short work of any enemy.

For a melee build that's not just about cutting enemies to ribbons with a katana, then this performs admirably. First off, players start by throwing any knife at their enemies' heads before switching to a katana. Throwing the knife not only poisons the enemies but also triggers a large Ninjutsu damage buff for six seconds.

To make the most out of this buff, players can use the Sandevistan to slow down time, while they'll move faster from all the passives they took. It's a shame players can't view their actions in real-time; because a juiced-up samurai zipping through enemies at lightning speed ought to make Cyberpsychos look meek.

Cyberpunk 2077 is available on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, PC, and Stadia.
