I'm one of those people who started playing CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 late in 2020, around its release, but got so bugged-out by the experience that I gave up and, despite best intentions, I've never gone back. But to its credit, the game and its developers have issued a steady series of updates and patches, making Cyberpunk 2077 a more satisfying, significantly less-glitch-added open-worlder.
And in a recent update, it seems the devs have had a little fun, too. As posted to reddit, it would appear that the team has added a special message for any player who successfully 'breaks' one of the game's missions, 'Gimme Danger'. It's a pretty long and complicated part of the game, but there's a shortcut that some players have managed to find, using a hover-car to climb up to a safe platform, far away from a street-level shoot out that you're supposed to battle through. (At least, that's what I'm assuming - like I said, I dropped well off this one.)
Remind yourself of some of Cyberpunk 2077's bugs on launch with the video below...
The reddit post reads, "When the game developers tell you 'well done' for trying to break their encounter," and honestly, I'm very here for lil snarky notes like this, making their way into games when players push against the margins to find new ways around obstacles. It's a reward, really, isn't it? We see what you've done, and you weren't meant to, but fair enough, here's your congratulations.
The same platform can be seen outside of mission action in this YouTube video, showing that it only activates when the player character is really close to it - which is to say, close to a piece of environment that they're not supposed to be beside. Just to bring this matter to a close, CDPR's own acting lead quest designer on Cyberpunk 2077, Philipp Weber, tweeted that yep, t'was he who put these words where they appear, and he did so to kind of say well done for making the most of a bug that hasn't yet been squashed.
