Practically, you get a lot to do in Cyberpunk 2077, well the game was worth waiting for 9 years though. One of the most interesting things you can do is to steal or hack a car. Yes, you heard that right. However, stealing a car in Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t a cakewalk.
The reason behind this is a security software called SID. It seems like you’re quite interested in this, so here is a detailed guide on how you can hack and steal cars in the game. Let’s get started with stealing cars.
About SID and Car Theft
In Cyberpunk 2077, almost all the electronic devices are protected with security software, called SID. The access to laptops, phones, cars, hotel rooms, doors, smart guns, and many more are being secured with the security system: Subcutaneous Identification Device. The SID is a smart chip technology comprising of a small circuit board. A SID chip is mounted on each person. It is implanted in the thumb bone of the dominant hand.
However, in spite of this tough SID chip (also called Seed), you can hack a car. Only those who have access to a personal link can do this. For hacking a car you need a specialized illegal hacking program.
There are various brands and classes of cars: the lower class, the middle class, and the upper class. A car of a higher class is difficult to hack compared to other cars of lower brand and class. There is an access port in every vehicle right next to the fuel tank intake. A hacker needs to access this port of the car and to connect to it through a personal link.
Once the connection is established, you can then break open the malware and install it on the vehicle’s computers. The bottom line is that you can hack a car in Cyberpunk 2077 in addition to buying them.
How to Hack and Steal Cars in Cyberpunk 2077?
Before you set to hack a car, get your Body skills and Hacking skills upgraded. For this upgrade, you need to earn a certain amount. Therefore you cannot hack a car as a new player. (unlike in games like GTA V etc.). The upgrade will enable you to go and hack a car from some parking and make it your own.
If you, however, want a car for a smaller duration of time, then you can just simply hijack a car from the roads. You need a high Body Skill level for this. Go to a car on the road, rip the driver out of the car and take it. This car is not your own, like the one you hack. You cannot keep it in your garage.
The stealing will be useful while you are running away from something. A car that you buy will be always available at your disposal, unlike a stolen car.
