The Wild Dog is a Power Light Machine Gun that will add a new experience to your gameplay. It's a new iconic weapon added in the Phantom Liberty DLC, but unfortunately, you won't be able to buy it. This guide will explain how to get the iconic Wild Dog in Cyberpunk 2077.

We managed to get this heavy weapon right at the end of the expansion, during the Firestarter mission. Trick or kill the main antagonist in the new Phantom Liberty DLC to grab the gun. Read more about the final quest and how to get Wild Dog below.

Cyberpunk 2077: How to Get Wild Dog

Wild Dog in Cyberpunk 2077

Firestarter is the 10th primary mission in the Phantom Liberty DLC. In this quest, you will face important decisions, interesting plot twists, and hard battles. It's a very exciting ending to the story, but let's talk about the machine gun. There are two ways to get Wild Dog, so let's break them down:

Get a Weapon in Battle

In the first case, you will have to fight against Kurt Hansen to get the machine gun. To start the fight, assist Reed in catching the Songbird by selecting the "One more second..." option in the dialogue window. This will lead you to a battle with Kurt Hansen. Be prepared for a tough boss fight, as this is the main antagonist of the expansion. Once you have completed the two stages of the boss battle and defeated him, he will drop to his knees, and you can finish him off and take the Wild Dog.

Steal a Weapon

In the second case, you can steal the weapon without starting the boss fight. You'll have the opportunity to do this after you've made an important decision about Songbird. Specifically, you need to help her escape, and then you can steal the Wild Dog and other weapons belonging to Hansen.

When you and Songbird are escaping from the stadium, follow the objective marker until you pass the area with the burning helicopter. Then, instead of following the objective marker, head into the lounge where you spoke to Kurt Hansen earlier. Here, in addition to the Wild Dog, you will also find the iconic Bald Eagle and the Access Datashard for the stadium security. As a bonus, when you exit the stadium, you can kill Murphy and pick up the iconic Murphy's Law. We must repeat that there will be no fight with Hansen under these circumstances.

These are the two ways you can get the iconic Wild Dog during the Firestarter mission. Now let's move on to the review of this Power Light Machine Gun.
