Crafting and Crafting Spec Locations

Cyberpunk 2077 Crafting

Cyberpunk 2077 crafting can be a little confusing and in this guide, we explain how it works.

Although there are a plethora of items that can be looted, players are able to craft specific items if they have learned how to make it from a crafting spec.

Crafting specs can be found throughout the game at vendors and are also dropped by enemies. Once acquired, that spec stays with you so you can create as many of the items as you wish. There are also a few crafting specs that are available right from the start in the crafting interface.

Cyberpunk 2077 Crafting Interface and Requirements

Crafting Screen
Note on this item you require a specific Perk to craft it.

There is a separate interface for crafting which shows the specs available to use on the left which are all the items you can currently craft. On the right side of the interface are all the components you currently have which can be used to make the item you select on the left.

If you do not have the required components to craft the item, the crafting button will read “Blocked”. Assuming you have the right components, you can click the “Craft” button to create the item you selected on the left.

Take note of the requirements you need to create the item because some items may require you have a Perk from the Technical crafting tree assigned such as the Perk “Grease Monkey” which allows you to create Epic items.

A full list of  Cyberpunk 2077 Crafting specific Perks can be found here.

Item Quality

There are various degrees of item quality which are as follows:

  • Common (White)
  • Uncommon (Green)
  • Rare (Blue)
  • Epic (Purple)
  • Legendary (Yellow)

Acquiring Components

The primary way to acquire components from crafting is either looting items laying around the game world or by disassembling weapons you have picked up. This is done via the inventory interface. It’s not the best system and you can accidentally disassemble an item easily if you are not careful because the key needs to be held down. Be vigilant because the next item in the list will jump up one slot and it’s easy to accidentally disassemble that item by accident with the key held down.

Getting Hold of Cyberpunk 2077 Crafting Specs

Click trade to buy Cyberware mods
Click trade to buy Cyberware mods/specs at Ripperdoc.

Cyberpunk 2077 crafting can appear confusing, especially when it comes to mods for Cyberware. This is mainly down to the less than optimal character interfaces. This is especially noticeable when you first start to think about acquiring mods and crafting specs from Ripperdocs.

As soon as you visit a Ripperdoc, you are presented with the skeleton interface and the Cyberware that’s available for purchase. However, the mods and crafting specs you can acquire for your Cyberware are not shown here. To acquire the crafting specs, you need to click the trade button at the top of the screen. This will then show what mods/specs the Ripperdoc has available for sale.

The clothing interface is easier to understand, the vendors will have the specs listed in with their items for sale. Make sure you read the title of the item, it will be labeled Crafting Spec. Unfortunately crafting specs cannot be filtered so you need to look at the item name to make sure it’s a crafting spec.

Equipping Cyberware Mods

While not directly related to the crafting of mods, you do need to know how to equip them. Once you have acquired a spec or mod, it can be applied to the Cyberware via the Inventory screen and clicking the Cyberware button on the bottom left.

You are now presented with the skeleton again with each piece of Cyberware listed on the body. Below the headings, the number of available mods is listed and you need to click the installed Cyberware image to show what mods are available.


Along with crafting weapons, they can also be upgraded within the crafting interface. Upgrading works the same way as crafting a new site. Players will need to meet the requirements to upgrade the weapon which will include components found in the game world or acquired from breaking down existing items.

To upgrade a weapon, click the “Upgrades” tab inside the crafting window.

Where to get Crafting Specs in Night City

Some of the better Cyberpunk 2077 crafting specs can either be found or purchased from a vendor. Below is a list of items you may want to seek out while adventuring in Night City and exactly where to find them.

There are also crafting specs available for iconic weapons that can be found. A list of those can be found on the Iconic weapons section.
