Best Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 Sniper Headhunter build

Hit that Headshot!

Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 and Phantom Liberty bring a lot of new things to the table, including some treats for sniper players. Many want to create the best Sniper build, so to help you, I created a build that employs Snipers, grenades, health items, and Handguns. Below is everything you need to know on how you can create the best Sniper build in Cyberpunk 2.0.

Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 Sniper build guide

The Sniper build is a mix of the Cool, Technical ability, and Reflexes trees. Using them, you'll enhance your capabilities with Sniper, grenades, health items, and Handguns. The main ability for this build is Deadeye, which slows time down for you to snipe; Technical ability and Reflexes tree brings versatility with grenades, health items, and movement. You won't always be able to stay at long range; these will help you wipe enemies when things get dicey.

Best perks for Technical Ability tree - Cyberpunk 2077 2.0

For the Technical Ability tree, we have gone with perks like All Things Cyber and Health Freak to support the build with some cyberware, health items, and grenades. You will be able to use grenades when entering into combat to take on multiple enemies at once, and recharge them along with health items much faster.

Best weapons for a Sniper build in Cyberpunk 2077 2.0

You will need two different weapons for the ideal sniper build in Cyberpunk 2077 2.0: Sniper and Handgun or Revolver. I recommend the ones below, but you can use the best ones you have. 

  • NDI Osprey: This is an amazing sniper rifle since it gives you the ability to fire a few shots in quick succession, which is rare with snipers in this game. You can get this sniper from the selection of weapons at Alex's safehouse during the Birds with Broken Wings or Get it Together job.
  • Rosco: My favorite revolver in the game, you can bang some really nice headshots with it. You loot it from Dodger's body in the Waiting For Dodger gig.

Best Cyberware for a Sniper build in Cyberpunk 2077 2.0

Below is the recommended cyberware to make the Sniper build even more powerful in Cyberpunk 2077 2.0. 

  • Second Heart: With this Cyberware, V heals to 100% after dying. This is available at various Ripperdocs in Nightcity, with an increased chance at West Wind Estate Ripperdoc. 
  • Biomonitor: It will heal you automatically with the health item whenever your health goes below 35%. To get this, you can go to any Ripperdoc, and he will likely have it. 
  • Kerenzikov: This will slow down time when you aim while sliding, dashing, or vaulting, making it easier for you to run and hit headshots. Get it from Arroyo Ripperdoc.
