In Cyberpunk 2077, you will find many unique iconic weapons as you explore Night City. It’s possible to buy some iconic weapons from certain vendors, and you can get some from completing both main missions and side quests. Characters in Cyberpunk 2077 carry iconic weapons, and you can only get their guns if you take them out of the game.
If you want to get your hands on all the iconic weapons you can find in Cyberpunk 2077, you have come to the right place. I will share their locations and how you can get them in this guide.
How Are Iconic Weapons Special?
Icon Weapons are special in their way. As you will notice, these weapons can shred enemies to pieces. The list goes on and on about their unique abilities, which can produce devastating results.
However, these are not easy to procure, and you will come to learn that what makes these special is the fact that they are one of a kind. Moreover, these are better-looking weapons and can be crafted after you get one in Cyberpunk 2077.
Since they are created with a specific weapon image in mind, you can always use them later during your playthrough. Securing any of the Iconic weapons in Cyberpunk 2077 will take some time and effort.
