The best weapons in Phantom Liberty make a superb expansion even better, giving players brand new fire power to take on the many threats around Dogtown and beyond. Now, assigning the ‘best’ label to a gun or blade is tricky business because some weapons suit certain builds better than others, and of course there’s the important question of personal preference.

Throwing caution to the wind, we’ve pulled together a list of the best weapons in Phantom Liberty we’ve come across so far. We’ve tried to include all weapon types to give you options and we’ll explain how to get each one if you’re tempted.

For more help as you make your way through Dogtown, check out the best Cyberpunk 2077 builds, the best Cyberpunk 2077 starting attributes, all the Phantom Liberty tarot card locations, and all the Dogtown Data Terminal locations should need a few extra Relic Points.


  • Type: Tech Revolver
  • Modifiers: +150% heatshot multiplier, +50 armor penetration, 0.75 sec charge time.
  • Special ability: Fire in full auto when fully charged. Each successful hit has a chance to upload a random quick hack to the attacked enemy.
  • Location: Slasher’s hideout in Dogtown.

Getting the GRIS-GRIS is a bit of a hassle, requires a keycard, and is also missable. During the Treating Symptoms gig, you’ll infiltrate a Voodoo Boys base near the Luxor High Wellness Spa terminal in northeast Dogtown. The base is only accessible during and while the quest is still active in your journal so you won’t be able to explore the building afterwards. Make sure you grab the keycard during the job.

Make your way through the base until you come to a large hall with a glass ceiling. You’ll know you’re in the right place when you see a stack of servers on top of a bunch of plants at the centre of the room. As you go down the stairs into the hall, you’ll see a glass door on your left. Inside you’ll find Slider’s hideout storage room key. That’s the first piece of the puzzle.

The next step is to head to Slider’s hideout (complete The Damned main job to get access), which is just right and down the road from the Luxor High Wellness Spa. Enter the building until you hit the room with the server pillar at the center. Jump up to the second floor, and open the door with a skeleton wearing a suit on the front. The GRIS-GRIS is in a case on the desk.
