In the history of video games, there are still few titles that have had such an eventful existence as Cyberpunk 2077. After an excessive hype, a catastrophic launch and numerous patches to correct the situation, Cyberpunk 2077 is at the height of its popularity today, almost two years after its release.

Edgerunners, Cyberpunk 2077’s second chance?

Before discovering in detail the build of David, we will still make a small presentation of Edgerunners for those who have not seen it, without spoiler, of course. Thereby, the anime takes the form of ten episodes during which we follow the adventures of David Martinez, a street kid who decides to become a mercenary.

As for the chronology within the universe, the events of the anime take place before those of the game, since the action takes place in 2076 and that of the game… well in 2077, huh, it’s in the title, you can’t be wrong. Despite the fact that they do not take place at the same time, the anime multiple references to the game, precisely to make viewers want to launch it or relaunch it. This involves small details, such as the sound effects of electronic objects which are the same as in the game, or even characters like Adam Smasher, true legend of Night City that we find both in the game and in the series. Moreover, to accompany the release of the anime, the game was entitled to a small update to integrate elements seen in the show, and this is precisely what will interest us today.

What if V became David Martinez?

If you have seen the series, you know that one of David’s main increases is none other than Sandevistan which allows him to do things that are humanly impossible. To go into detail, it is a type of cyberware, that is to say an operating system, which allows to accelerate the capacities of its user to the point that the latter perceives time in slow motion. . As a reminder, in Cyberpunk, there are different types of cyberware other than Sandevistan which have different uses to adapt according to the style of each player.

For example, if you played the game, you might have chosen the Berserk implants instead, which, as the name suggests, increase its damage, both in melee and ranged, but also to cause a shock wave on the ground after a high jump. Finally, the third type of cyberware that we find are Cyberdecks which allow you to have Netrunner capabilities to hack its opponents much more easily and quickly. Besides, this is a good opportunity to remind you that in Cyberpunk 2077, the hacks that act like magic are very powerful and are particularly fun to play with.

Most to come back to our dear David, the latter therefore uses Sandevistan-type cyberware which, in game, is practical for using hand-to-hand weapons, but also for infiltration sequences. And since there are about ten modules of this type in Cyberpunk 2077 with an additional eight modifiers, it is quite easy to find one by going to any charcudoc. However, if you want to play almost constantly under the effect of speed, like David Martinez, then you will have to get a very specific model.

To benefit from powers similar to those of David, you will have to get your hands on the Qiant Sandevistan MK4 model which allows you to slow down time by 25% for 12 seconds and which increases damage and the chance of critical hits by 15%. However, the problem is that it is only possible to obtain it after a certain point in the game, more precisely, after having completed the mission The Space in Between which is part of the arc of Evelyn Parker. As a reminder, this is the moment when V is looking for the young woman and we are led to go to the office of a strange and quite disgusting charcudoc named Fingers who mistreats the prostitutes who come to see him. to be repaired.

Where the situation poses a problem is that the mission pushes us to manhandle him given his despicable behavior with his patients and unfortunately, if we do that, we can no longer trade with him when he has this particular implant. efficient. Nevertheless, all is not lost since we find in several places in the game cyberware with quite similar effects, although they won’t be able to reduce idle time as much as the Qiant Sandevistan MK4. For example, you can go see Viktor, the first charcudoc we meet in the adventure, who sells the Dynalar Sandevistan MK4 which also slows down time by 25% but for 16 seconds, with a rest time of 30 seconds.

To correct this defect, there are many other implants that will allow you to reduce the rest time. First you can get your hands on a Bioconductor which is placed in the blood system and which makes it possible to reduce the rest time of all other cyber material by 30%. If you want to get the legendary version of this implant, turn to the charcudoc of the Aldeclados which you will discover while progressing in the arc of Hellman. Finally, another essential module, the heat sink can reduce the rest time by up to four seconds depending on its rarity, and since you can place several per implant, it can quickly become interesting. To find the manufacturing plan of this module, nothing could be simpler, you have to go to the Santo Diego charcudoc which is located right next to the fast travel point. If you follow all these tips, normally, you will have enough to use your Sandevistan in an optimized way.

Now that we’ve told you how to get Sandevistan, we suggest you complete the build so that your V really plays like David in the anime. First of all, you will have noticed that David fights primarily in melee in Edgerunners, so you will have to get your hands on some gorilla arms, something that can be found everywhere in Night City. But hey, if you’re a perfectionist, know that you can find a copy of legendary rarity at Charcudoc Downtown or in Heywood, in Wellsprings to be precise.

As for the other implants, if it is difficult to know what David has integrated into his body, we can still try to get closer by seeing what he is capable of in the anime. Regarding the defensive aspect, we recommend the subcutaneous armor which reinforces resistance and immunizes against shockthe biomonitor and restorative death which restores your life points when you are in a bad situation, or even the auxiliary heart which allows you to revive.

For the fights, we rather go with a micro-vibration generator which allows to do more damage in melee, microrotors which increase the speed of melee attacks and a mechatronic core to be more effective. against robots. Finally, we end with an auxiliary implant which turns out to be very practical, the reinforced tendons, which allow you to do double jumpsan essential thing to enjoy Night City properly.

To complete the kit, you obviously need David’s iconic jacket which will ask you to complete a little quest to get your hands on it. Thus, you will first have to go to the H4 Megabuilding in Santo Domingo, where David resides, and walk around the building until you come across large yellow pipes that run along the wall. In a trash can, you will find a Sensory Dance which is simply the introduction of Edegerunners and you will have to send a message to Reyes, the fix from Santo Domingo, so that he can find you information on David.

Twenty-four hours later, he will contact you again to meet you somewhere and get his hands on a box containing David’s jacket, and voila, you’re done! Well, if it can be fun to play as David, it must be recognized that the melee combat is not the most successful part of Cyberpunk 2077, so it’s up to you to see if you only want to play like that. If you want to play with guns, we can recommend that you get Guts, Rebecca’s shotgun. To retrieve it, you simply have to go to the Arasaka Tower in the city center, reach Corpo Plaza and on the last level where the gardens are located and you will find that the shotgun is hiding in a bush, where monks pray.

After a long crossing of the desert, Cyberpunk 2077 has finally regained a good image with players, thanks in large part to Edgerunners who pushed them to give the game a second chance. However, the news around the title of CD Projekt n is not dead, as we should have news in the coming months about Phantom Liberty, the first narrative additional content. In the meantime, to follow all the news around Cyberpunk 2077, do not hesitate to stay connected on JV.
