Cyberpunk 2077 is getting a lot of flak for how many bugs it has. In this case, the bugs work in favor of the player, allowing you to earn an unlimited amount of free money and items.
The release of Cyberpunk 2077 was unfortunately clouded by the number of bugs present within an otherwise brilliant single-player game. Not all of the bugs work against you, though.
Since the game came out, several players have discovered infinite money exploits that are incredibly easy to perform. The most popular exploit has to do with selling the map you receive from a mission over and over again.
If you don’t already know about this exploit, you can take a look at it here. This new duplication glitch is an evolution of this system.
The original infinite money glitch
We’ll briefly touch on the original infinite money glitch in case you don’t know about it.
The exploit starts by completing the ‘Space Oddity’ mission. As a reward for completing the mission, the player receives a map that’s worth 4,000 Euro Dollars. You can find the mission located on the map shown below.
From there, all you need to do is sell the map to a vendor terminal, back out, and repurchase it for $5. This single item offered players an unlimited source of money, but it’s gotten even better.
The new duplication glitch
YouTuber TagBackTV, one of the first people to publicize the original exploit, found another step in the process that allows you to duplicate the map and any other item in your inventory.
This means that you can unlock an unlimited number of crafting materials, rare items, and the $4,000 Eddie map from the original exploit.
To do this, you complete the same process as before but put the map and anything else you want to duplicate into the terminal. From there, you will hit the “sell” and “menu” buttons at the same time. This is escape and R on keyboard, and select and Y on Xbox.
You may have to try this a few times to get it right, but you’re looking for a “sell” screen with a transparent background. When we tried this, we found it much easier to complete on a controller rather than on a keyboard, for some reason.
Once you hit the right screen, you can buy all of the items you put into the terminal an unlimited number of times. You can mash F, A, or X (depending on your input) to get as many maps as your heart desires.
We play on PC, so we were able to macro F and spam it for two minutes, granting us over 6,000 maps. This equates to $24 million eddies – enough to buy everything in the game three times over.
This method will undoubtedly get patched sooner or later, but CD Projekt Red have some bigger issues on their plate. It’s there if you want to do it. If not, then you can just ignore it.
Does this exploit ruin the enjoyment of the game? In our opinion, it doesn’t. If anything, being able to buy all of the cool cars, cyberware, and everything else only adds to the enjoyment.
Money doesn’t make you invincible, and we’re doing all of the missions because we want to experience the content, not because we want to make money.
As we said, this exploit won’t be in the game forever, so it’s worth taking advantage of while it’s here. Now, you can buy all of those fancy cars the Fixers keep contacting you about.
CDPR confirm Cyberpunk 2077 update is set for huge setback because of “cyber attack”
CD Projekt Red has confirmed that the Cyberpunk 2077 February 1.2 update has been affected by the recent cyber attack.
The Cyberpunk 2077 1.2 update previously announced for February will not be going ahead as planned due to lasting effects caused by the recent ransomware attack on CD Projekt Red.
Cyberpunk 2077 continues to suffer issues and setbacks as it bids to recover from its difficult launch. It was over a month ago that CDPR co-founder Marcin Iwinski addressed the public to discuss the game’s tumultuous launch. During this video, he discussed why the game had not lived up to expectations on console and made assurances about their plans to fix the game.
This included two substantial updates that were being worked on – the 1.1 and 1.2 patches. However, CD Projekt Red was the victim of a cyber attack a month ago that compromised the company, and as a result, the February update has been postponed.
The three-part Tweet discussed the impact of the ransomware attack saying: “The recent cyber attack on the studio’s IT infrastructure and extensive scope of the update mean this, unfortunately, will not happen — we’ll need some additional time.”
This will come as a hammer blow to buyers of the game that have been patiently waiting for Cyberpunk 2077’s issues to be mended. The Tweet continues on saying: “We’ve been working on numerous overall quality improvements and fixes, and we still have work to do to make sure that’s what you get.”
The official CDPR Tweet confirms that the massive 1.2 patch is now being touted for “release in the second half of March.”
It’s not an ideal situation for the company as they have already endured a lot of criticism for the game’s release with consumers slamming the devs for knowing it wasn’t ready.
Given the nature of the delay, it would be fair to say that players shouldn’t necessarily expect the new release date to be concrete either.
If internal problems continue to cause this level of disruption inside CDPR, then the 1.2 update could be delayed even further.

CD Projekt Red releases mod tools for Cyberpunk 2077
CD Projekt Red has released mod tools for Cyberpunk 2077, shortly after the release of patch 1.1. It’s only a matter of time before we see Cyberpunk mods.
CD Projekt Red has finally released mod tools to the public for Cyberpunk 2077.
Today, January 26, 2021, CD Projekt Red has released mod tools for PC owners of Cyberpunk 2077, days after their first major patch for the game. This is the first step of their long-planned journey to fix the game and add more content.
In addition to the tools, CD Projekt Red has also promised continued updates to the mod tools as more patches are released for the game.
As of now, only basic mod tools have been released, and the capabilities of the tools will remain unknown until modders begin to experiment with the technology.
The tools available are as follows:
- ArchiveDump – A utility for listing contents of game data archives
- TweakDump – A utility for listing contents of game Tweak DB (game settings) binaries
With these tools, there is also a separate Metadata download. You can download the tools for yourself here, but we only recommend doing so if you have experience with modding games or programming.
With the release of the mod tools, it’s only a matter of time until the true capabilities of the modding scene are realized.
Perhaps, players can fix bugs themselves, or even overhaul the buggy AI. With fixes for the game potentially trailing well into 2022, it isn’t outside of the realm of possibility that players beat CD Projekt Red to the punch with bug fixes.
We’ll be sure to update if any additional mod tools are released.
Cyberpunk 2077 players reportedly getting refunds and keeping the game
Players are starting to see refunds for their Cyberpunk 2077 purchases, CD Projekt Red have yet to request that they return physical copies.
Players are now starting to see refunds for their physical purchases of Cyberpunk 2077, but aren’t being asked to return their game copies.
The launch of Cyberpunk 2077 has been nothing short of a disaster for gamers and developers at CD Projekt Red, especially on consoles.
Due to the horrible console launch, CD Projekt Red offered refunds to players who purchased physical copies of the game before December 21, 2020, and refunds are now being sent out to players via multiple methods of payment, including PayPal.
In an interview with Vice, an owner of the $250 collectors edition of the game reported that he received his refund, but hasn’t received any instructions from publisher CD Projekt Red on how to return the game and collectibles.
The refund he received (pictured below) was $271.10 USD which also included the estimated sales tax of the game.
It’s quite surprising that CD Projekt Red are the ones handling physical copy refunds, as traditionally it would be up to big-box retailers to issue refunds. Unfortunately, with the Cyberpunk 2077 issue, some retailers would offer refunds, while others did not.
As a result of the confusion, CD Projekt Red stepped in to offer refunds to customers who did not get the option to receive one.
For digital owners of the game, the Xbox and PlayStation store offered owners refunds, except in rare cases where users purchased digital codes from retailers. In these case-specific situations, CD Projekt Red are also keeping their word and issuing refunds to players who requested one.
As it stands, CD Projekt Red seems to be keeping its promise to refund all unsatisfied customers of the game. While they have not requested returns for the physical copies of the game, they may in the future.
If you’re a customer who has received a refund with no instructions on what to do with your copy, we recommend keeping the game stored in a safe place just in case the publisher asks for the copy back.
If they never do, then you can count yourself lucky. You’ll be able to play the game for free once the developers iron out all of the bugs, which is expected to happen over the course of the next few months.
