If you’ve fond memories of abusing the physics of video game jumping at absurd speeds through Quake or Thief or Half-Life to bunny hop (until it was patched and they took the fun away from us) you’ll get a kick out of it when You see it return in a slightly different shape Cyberpunk 2077.
YouTuber Max Dakka demonstrates the technique in the video above. To try it yourself, you need to install cyberware. Get the upgrade on the maneuvering system that allows you to dodge in the air and you will likely need the reinforced tendons for that sweet double jump too. The secret to increasing your speed of movement is to dodge a jump just before landing. You get a boost every time you do this, and if you chain the boosts together you’ll soon become faster than vehicles.
You can see in Max Dakka’s run around the bypass that cars sometimes jump out of existence when V approaches, as it’s clearly a faster speed than the game’s developers expected you to do.
The same exploit has been documented on Reddit Hank_Jenkins and Strikielolwho also has combined it with a katana and a bunch of unsuspecting enemies Turn Cyberpunk 2077 into Ghostrunner.
Personally, I don’t mind if CD Projekt Red doesn’t fix this problem. I’d love to watch speed runners battle for the best of times when they wave in Night City.
