Cyberpunk 2077: How to Quick-Scan The Environment (& What it’s For)



Quick-scan the environment in Cyberpunk 2077 to get an idea of any useful items in V’s vicinity. They’ll stay tagged and can be picked up later.

Cyberpunk 2077  is an infinite realm of open-world possibilities. With an array of different areas to explore, Cyberpunk’s quick-scan mechanic will make looting easier. Players will be able to learn more information about the objects and people surrounding them. From locked doors to NPCs, Cyberbunk’s  quick scan mechanic is convenient.

There’s a certain degree of difficulty when it comes to exploration in Open World RPGs. There comes the point when players become annoyed by looking under every rock and opening every drawer. Especially when that action has its own animation tied to it. Ghost of Tsushima did a great job of streamlining the resource gathering mechanic. So did Assassin’s: Creed Valhalla. Cyberpunk allows players to use their bio-tech to mark any POIs in the surrounding area quickly. Here’s how to use the quick-scan in Cyberpunk and how players can use it most effectively.

How To Quick-Scan In Cyberpunk 2077

On PlayStation, holding L1 will pull up V’s bio-tech eye and allow them to hack and scan the environment. While looking around in scan mode, items of interest will mark themselves. V will be able to tag enemies, hack tech, and tag loot-able containers. Players can quick-scan the environment by simply clicking L1 to see any items they can pick up. This works similarly to Eivor’s Oden Sight in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. However, in Cyberpunk 2077, the items will tag and stay tagged. Players on Xbox and PC will have to tap whatever button they’d normally hold to pull up their scanner.

Players can use the quick-scan to familiarize themselves with the current area and return to the items they’d like to grab after dealing with any threats. The quick-scan makes looting much faster, as V won’t be wasting time opening random drawers and containers. Quick-scan will also let players keep track of any hackable tech that V may use to their advantage. Hacking is a huge component of Cyberpunk 2077 and should not be overlooked for brute strength and firepower. Not to mention Hacking can earn you Street Cred, Cyberpunk’s most important leveling feature.

Players will reveal far more information if they hold down the scanner and look around. Since V can walk and scan simultaneously, as long as they’re in cover, there’s no reason not to get a more accurate picture. Players will feel as if they’re harnessing their inner Terminator as they scan people, doors, and tech.

Not having to meticulously inspect and search every nook and cranny of the world makes any Open World RPG more accessible. Players can focus more on combat, driving, and exploration than wasting time watching their character open a drawer to find nothing but rubbish. Players can only hope their Cyberpunk experience continues to grow as bugs continue to be found and rumors of multiplayer surface.

Cyberpunk 2077 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Next-Gen.
