This should be the most obvious way to make money, but before you get too distracted exploring everything that Cyberpunk 2077 has to offer, make sure to complete Act 1 as soon as possible.

Act 2 opens up a lot of side quests where you will be able to earn a lot of credits. Don’t forget to do events around you. Tracking the cyberpsychos, stopping street crime, and NCPD quests will pay you heftily.

Loot Everything

Don’t leave anything out when you are looting. Your opponents will drop different types of items, and while you may find some junk items, then throw them away. You can sell them to junk shops, and you will be able to earn a good sum of money from them.

Craft & Sell

Crafting components won’t cost you money, just materials, and you can sell them for a good amount. You will have to invest in crafting skills if you want to craft items that sell for the most price.

If you are worried about getting the materials, then an easy way is to go to the nearest vendor to buy all of their mats and then use the ‘Time Skip’ feature 24 hours ahead. The vendors will replenish all of their goods when you do this. And don’t worry, the materials don’t cost that much.

These are the best ways you can earn easy cash in Night City. There are also other options like hacking systems, but for that, you will need much more investment in the skill tree and progress further in the game.
