This guide shows you how to get Mantis Blades much earlier and for free in Cyberpunk 2077. You can only buy the popular melee weapons later in the game at Ripperdocs, if you have collected enough Street Cred.
This way requires a lot of game time and a lot of Euro-Dollars since the popular melee weapons are among the more powerful items in the game.
- You can find mantis blades in a side quest
- After you find it, you’ll need to go to a ripperdoc that will complete the installation for you.
- Be careful that the boss opponent doesn’t finish you off
Find legendary mantis blades in side-mission
Needed Time: 10 Minutes.
This is how it works: The corresponding side quest is located near the city center, at Corpo Plaza.
- Get to the right place
Navigate on the map to the following side mission in the city center:
- Save your Savegame
Save your game before starting the mission. The desired items do not always spawn in the box. You can restart at any time with the saved game.
- Start the side mission
The side mission takes you into a boss arena. In this you can kill the boss opponent, but you don’t necessarily have to.
- Open the box;
Just run to the right side of the box, and lo and behold – your new Legendary Mantis blades!
