Now not all system faults in Cyberpunk 2077 are as immersion-breaking as gamers’ butts or unmentionables putting and flopping out. Some will also be helpful — particularly to speedrunners.
The glitch in query comes to modding up V with Maneuvering Device, a work of cyberware that we could the participant execute a dodge mid-air. (In finding stated cyberware in Santo Domingo’s Arroyo sub-district.) As Redditor Strikielol discovered (by means of Eurogamer), it additionally permits gamers to sprint mid-air. When a mid-air sprint is correctly timed, it provides V super-speed.
The trick is to hit sprint proper ahead of V lands; this principally confuses the sport into merging each the sprint and the leap ahead, and with it, V builds up momentum and pace way past what CD Projekt Purple builders meant.

(The present world-record holder, LMW, extensively utilized the “pace cripple” trick to set their 14:24 time on Dec. 17.)
Cyberpunk 2077’s any% mark is considerably longer — 3:03:50, set via ColdCypher on Dec. 31. In fact, the sport best introduced on Dec. 10. Perhaps the invention of this glitch will likely be useful in cracking the 3-hour barrier in few minutes.
