How to find singing gun Skippy in Cyberpunk 2077

Do you want a gun that will aim solely at the head of your enemies? Then learn how to find Skippy the singing gun in Cyberpunk 2077.

Cyberpunk 2077 is a huge game with so much content that it will probably take people many years to find. A very interesting and useful gun called Skippy has been located that not only sings to V, but provides headshot bonuses too.

The futuristic nature of Night City means that a variety of cool and deadly weapons are available at your disposal. Some can ricochet bullets off of walls and some are smart enough that you don’t even need to be able to see the enemy to hit them.

However, a strange and entertaining gun has been discovered that has two very different, and unique, modes of fire that can destroy your enemies.

Skippy the singing gun location

Cyberpunk 2077 is no stranger to easter eggs and hidden secrets and CD Projekt Red has packed their game full of them.

The bizarre gun in question has been found in The Glen – located in the Heywood district. It identifies on the map as an “Undiscovered location” and can be located in an Alley after hopping over a fence.

This is the spot where you should be able to find Skippy lying in an open briefcase next to a dead person.

Upon picking up and making contact with Skippy, he will be very stubborn almost immediately, even ignoring your request by increasing his own volume to drown you out. He will play a “soothing melody” of constant “bum-de-bums” to make your time together more relaxing.

Shortly after, Skippy’s true purpose becomes clear as he asks you to select one of his two operating modes:

  • Puppy-Loving Pacifist – He will focus primarily on the lower extremities
  • Stone Cold Killer – He will aim exclusively at the head

It’s up to you which option you choose, but the obvious selection is surely Stone Cold Killer mode for the outrageous damage bonuses you will receive.

In the words of Skippy – Happy slaughtering!

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.

Published

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.

The aftermath of Cyberpunk 2077 also resulted in further action such as players getting refunds and the game even being removed from the PlayStation Store.

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.

Published

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.
