Learn the best methods for getting Eddies fast to fund your lavish purchases in Cyberpunk 2077.

Whether you’re in store for a new ride, need fresh threads, or just want to pay back Vik, there are plenty of ways to spend your hard-earned Eurodollars in Cyberpunk 2077. This guide will explain the best glitch-free methods for getting money fast during your time in Night City.

Collect and Sell Junk

Night City is full of junk just waiting to be salvaged. Selling junk can help load your wallet with some quick cash. You can sell junk and other unwanted items at any Drop Point throughout the city. You should do this regularly to maintain a steady flow of money. When you approach a Drop Point, simply press the “Sell Junk” button listed in the lower right corner to clear the junk items out of your inventory.

Hack Access Points

Access Points are computer terminals or laptops that can be hacked for extra Eurodollars. It’s basically free money, so you’ll want to plug into Access Points whenever possible, provided you have a high enough Intelligence stat. Be sure to scan rooms for hidden Access Points during quests so you don’t miss out on free Eddies.

Once you’ve jacked into an Access Point, you will have to complete a datamining mini-game that involves selecting numbers in a sequence. The more sequences you complete during a breach, the more money you stand to earn. The Advanced Datamining upgrade will increase the amount of Eurodollars you get from Access Points, so it’s worth unlocking if you hack these terminals often.

Resolve NCPD Scanner Hustles

NCPD Scanner Hustles are found all throughout Night City. There are three types of NCPD Scanner Hustles: Assaults in Progress, Reported Crimes, and Suspected Organized Crime Activities. Completing these tasks typically involves neutralizing enemies and collecting loot in the vicinity. You can sell loot for extra cash on top of your reward.

Complete Gigs

Gigs are another great way to make money in Cyberpunk 2077. Your journal will populate with new Gigs from various fixers as you explore the city and complete quests. Along with additional Street Cred and experience, completed Gigs usually offer a monetary reward upon completion. Gigs typically take less time to complete than the average Side Jobs, making them a good means for earning money relatively fast.
