Get your bounties after hunting down the evildoers of Night City.

CD PROJEKT RED‘s Cyberpunk 2077 offers an expansive and immersive dystopian RPG experience, ensuring long-lasting entertainment. In addition to that, the game introduces cutting-edge technology, updated character aesthetics, and new cosmetic options.

Cyberpunk introduces players with a large-scale Bounty System to earn additional eddies, apart from the multiple in-game quests. It is one of the easiest side-activity to do, to blow off some steam.

This article will discuss Bounty Hunting, how to find criminals, and how to claim them.



First, you need to find the criminals, so to do that, you need to scan the suspicious-looking criminals using a Scanner. If they have bounties on their head, that means they are a wanted man. Moreover, the Scanner will display further details about their bounty, including the Reward and Threat level.

How to Acquire the Scanner?

You can obtain the Scanner by completing the Ripperdoc quest. The Scanner will be available for use afterward.

Once you scan a person of interest, you can eliminate your target to claim your bounty reward.

Remember: Incapacitating them without killing them will not reward you.

Where to Find Bounties

Here are all the places you can find bounties in Cyberpunk 2077.

Back Alleys and Streets

An individual with a bounty on their head usually means that they are traditionally gang members, and they are commonly found in back alleys of overpopulated districts or quieter areas on the street.

Back Alleys and Streets

Driving Around Night City

Crimes around Night City are happening on every block, and so while taking a cruise, you will encounter crimes in progress. Once you are in close vicinity, a light blue star icon will appear on your minimap.

These events are similar to Assaults, except there are no key items to loot.

NCPD Scanner Hustles

Taking on NCPD Scanner hustles is the quickest way to look for bounties. You find these jobs on maps, which are relatively easy to complete.

Gun For Hire Gigs

This yields you more high-profile criminals, so the bounty is more. Some examples of Gun for Hire gigs with bounties are Monster Hunt, Eye for an Eye, and The Union Strikes Back.

If you find yourself exploring the Night City, don’t be afraid to help clean up the streets a little bit.
