Are you on the hunt for a new close-range melee weapon in Cyberpunk 2077? If you are, we recommend looking for the Blue Fang Knife. This combat knife is a Tier 5 weapon with multiple effects and perks that make it a very useful one. Interested? Well, you are in luck because this article is going to be your guide on how to get this knife and what you can do with it in Cyberpunk 2077’s sprawling open world.
Cyberpunk 2077 features an excellent choice of weapon classes, their uses, and overall character builds. In most instances, you can use the same weapons and firearms regardless of how you build your character. The Blue Fang Knife, in particular, fits well into this role. Cyberpunk 2077’s open world full of bikes, cars, and other collectibles is full of enemies you need to defeat, and you will eventually need a melee weapon when dealing with them. So, getting this knife is a good choice.
Cyberpunk 2077 Blue Fang Knife: How to get & find?
Luckily, it is not hard to get this knife in the game. Once you have some reputation and some money, you can wander into the Jackson Plains area of the game (the Badlands). This area is an arid wasteland with little to no people, apart from some settlements. Here, you can find a vendor that sells melee weapons. You will have to visit this vendor in particular because only that NPC will sell you the knife.
How to get there?
The closest reliable landmark to this location is the Autowreks Fast Travel Point in the game. It is a slight jog or drive to the vendor from here. You will need to head towards a cliff in the Savannah from here, where you should be able to see a little knife icon in your minimap. Go to the knife icon, and you will find the weapon vendor. Since this is in the middle of the Badlands area, it might be a little difficult to spot, so we recommend getting a car and circling around the area in search of the vendor. Once you find the vendor, interact with them, and you will be able to purchase the knife.
Why this Knife?
This knife has multiple effects and statuses that can affect enemies. It is simply the iconic version of the neurotoxin knife. It can also vary in tier based on your level when you buy the knife. The knife has excellent stats and stuns enemies when they are hit (3 seconds when hit on the body and 1 second when hit on the head). It also has insane headshot multiplier damage (+150%) and is a reliable weapon for close-range stealth encounters in the game. In addition to this, it has the chance to inflict bleed or poison (50% for poison and 20% for bleed), making it excellent for dealing damage over time as well. A stealth-built character can make the most use of this weapon, but it works well with other build types as well.
You can reliably get close to an enemy, stun them with this weapon, and then shootgun them to their face to get quick kills if that is something you really want to do. Additionally, this is an iconic weapon, so it will look good in your collection of weapons and outfits. Be prepared to pay a hefty price, though, because this weapon costs a lot. Its iconic status makes it more expensive. If you get a lower-tier knife, you can always upgrade it to a higher-tier knife with the right materials. That being said, it will still be more expensive than other offerings in the same tier.
Anyway, this is all we have on getting the Blue Fang Knife in Cyberpunk 2077. If you found this article helpful and would like to read more, visit Android Gram daily.
