The world of Cyberpunk 2077 is filled to the brim with various gangs that are responsible for the crime and criminal enterprises of Night City.
These gangs have become so popular that a board game called Gangs of Night City, which allows you to roleplay and act as these gangs, has also been released and gained massive popularity.
If you are interested in learning more about all gangs in Cyberpunk 2077, you have come to the right place.
Cyberpunk 2077 gangs tier list (from least to most powerful)
You are going to cross paths with a lot of gang members while exploring Night City. Your encounters are not always going to be friendly. Hence, it would be wise to know beforehand which gangs to stay away from.
We have ranked all gangs in Cyberpunk 2077 from least to most powerful, with lore details about them and what makes them so dangerous.
8. The Mox
Located primarily in Watson and Westbrook, the Mox is the smallest and newest gang in Night City. Formed just 11 years before the activities of Cyberpunk 2077, the Mox rose in power after the murder of their leader Lizzie. They operate out of and are based primarily in Lizzie’s Bar which is located in Kabuki, a subdistrict of Watson.
What makes The Mox a fan favorite is the fact that they are mainly a pacifist group and rely on violence only when threatened and that they provide a haven to sex workers and prostitutes.
The reason that Lizzie was killed by Tyger Claws (a gang mentioned later down the list) is that she took out three of their members with an axe after they tortured and killed one of her employees.
The gang is made up of around 250 sex workers, punks, anarchists, and sexual minorities, who don’t usually engage in any criminal activities besides prostitution and rely mainly on melee-type weapons for their defense. Ultimately, this gang carries a low-level threat in Cyberpunk 2077.
The Animals, a fierce gang that is made up of extremely strong and aggressive individuals, is situated mainly around South Pacifica, but with members spread throughout Night City.
This gang is full of individuals who rely on supplements, and a special drug they call Juice to become as strong as possible. They have little regard for cyberware, with only a few cybernetic strength enhancements being used by them.
Members of the Animals like the street fighting and combat lifestyle, and their stature makes them extremely feared. The gang has over 2,500 members that roam around in hundreds of small packs, and a lot of its members work as bouncers and security for the clubs owned by other gangs.
They are also extremely proficient in the world of black-market drug dealing. They also rely on using Melee weapons, but if they do choose other forms, they opt for the best and strongest.
The leader is the one who is the strongest and fastest among them, and the current one is a female by the name of Sasquatch. The Animals are a gang that carries a high-level threat within Cyberpunk 2077.
The scavengers, a group of extremely greedy and violent individuals, have their members present throughout Night City, but mainly around Pacifica and Heywood.
Members of the Scavengers gang are extremely ruthless in Cyberpunk 2077, and instead of partaking in organized crime, they usually attack weak and innocent individuals.
The motivation behind these attacks, as mentioned before, is their greed. They target individuals that have flashy cyberware and once abducted, they operate on them and harvest them of all they have to offer. Their activities have led to them becoming filthy rich, which is in part due to the rising costs of cyberware.
The scavengers are also known to have ties to the Soviet Union, with many of their members being fluent in Russian and also partaking in Russian culture. You can find them by identifying Russian graffiti around you, and they pose a medium-level threat in Night City.
5. Voodoo Boys
The Voodoo Boys are a sadistic and nihilistic gang that takes part in cult-like traditions and activities in Cyberpunk 2077.
Located in the Pacifica district, the Voodoo Boys gang is comprised mainly of Haitian and Dominican Republic refugees, and one of their aims is to protect the interests of these people.
While they are extremely well-versed in the world of non-synthetic drugs, the Voodoo boys are known as the kings of the Net.
A lot of their members are Net runners, who plant viruses on the Net and freeze Neural networks to take down their targets.
Most of their money comes from hacking into databases and accounts and stealing money from them, with the main targets being big Corporations.
Another one of their goals is to breach the Blackwall, a virtual wall that protects against free AI.
Their leader goes by the name Bridgette and is a deadly Net runner herself, and her second in command is Placide. While their threat level in Night City is low, they are extremely dangerous on the Net.
The Valentinos are an unusual gang. Made up of mostly Latinos and holding traditional values such as justice, honor, and brotherhood in high esteem, what makes this gang so odd in Cyberpunk 2077 is that their primary motive is to seduce women. The more prestigious they are the better.
Of course, if they have boyfriends, that does not stop the Valentinos, who prefer assaulting and beating up the boyfriends of women they like. It is also one of the largest gangs in Night City, having around 6000 members.
They are open to whoever joins their gang and are extremely territorial. They also own a lot of legitimate businesses, which brings in quite a bit of money, although not all of it, since they also take part in gun smuggling, theft, trafficking, and hit jobs. They carry a mid to high-level threat within Night City.
3. 6th Street
Comprising of military vets who fought in the 4th Corporate War, 6th Street was started as a gang to rid the street of Night City of crime.
These individuals, who were disillusioned with the NCPD, are armed with military-grade weapons and combat experience.
They are located around Santo Domingo and Heywood and although started with noble intentions, soon strayed from them and are now actively involved in criminal activities.
These include robberies, smuggling, forcing others to pay for protection, and their specialty is modifying cars and selling them. This gang poses a mid to high-level threat in Night City as well.
2. Tyger Claws
Centered primarily in Westbrook and Watson, the Tyger Claws is one of the largest gangs in the Night City. It has around 5500 members and has the backing of the mega-corporation Arasaka.
Members of the Tyger Claws do not rely too much on cyberware, choosing instead to trust their martial arts, reflexes, and traditional weapons such as Katanas. They are also extremely defensive and territorial.
In addition to earning income through the side jobs and tasks given to them by Arasaka, the Tyger Claws own the most legitimate businesses out of all the gangs, such as bars, casinos, brothels…and the list goes on.
That, however, does not stop them from pursuing crime as they are huge participants in human trafficking, prostitution, drugs, and money laundering. This gang carries a high level of threat within Night City.
At the top of our tier list is Maelstromas the most powerful and dangerous gang in Cyberpunk 2077.
Maelstrom came into being after some smaller gangs including the Metal Warriors came together because they were being targeted and destroyed by a gang called the Inquisitors. Naturally, the Inquisitors are also their primary enemy.
This gang is situated in an abandoned warehouse near the Docks, and what makes them eerie and especially dangerous is their degree of obsession with cyberware.
Maelstrom has around 1300 members, and it specializes in illegal medicines and drugs, which is also their primary source of income.
They also own one of the most popular clubs in Night City- The Totentanz. The club has an organizational structure and does not shy away from killing.
The members, who as mentioned before are obsessed with cyberware, are highly susceptible to becoming cyberpsychos with 1/3 being so and another 1/3 on the borderline. Ultimately, this is the most dangerous gang in the Night City and poses an extreme level of threat.
