Cyberpunk 2077 Best Quickhacks

Quickhacks are enabled with your selected perks in the game and your cyberware.

You will get quickhacks pre-installed with cyberdeck and that is why you can use some of the quickhacks in each situation.

Now, these quickhacks will require some RAM to run the process and that is why you need to have the necessary RAM to activate the quickhack. This RAM requirement varies with the quickhack and your progress level.

You can choose quickhacks of your choice in your cyberdeck that you might have crafted, looted, or earned.

  • Stealth Quickhacks are all about infiltrating any enemy area by controlling cameras and robots.
  • Control Quickhacks are about controlling your enemies during combat by halting their movements and disabling their cyberware.

Now, these quickhacks are tiered up like other perks into different degrees and the degree of rarity also determines the effect of a quickhack.
