Gamers excited for a cyberpunk adventure in Cyberpunk 2077 should try its TTRPG source to get that “authentic” immersion. After all, Cyberpunk 2077 implemented many concepts from Cyberpunk 2020 and the upcoming Cyberpunk Red. As such, it makes sense for players to at least try and immerse themselves in the original material.
Unfortunately for new players, many features in Cyberpunk 2020 might seem overwhelming. After all, systems like Dungeons & Dragons just keep everything bundled in a few skills and proficiency. Moreover, players of Cyberpunk 2020 would notice a lot of numbers to track, especially since the Interlock system tries to encapsulate cybernetics, hacking, and fast-paced action in the game. What are some pro tips to get a newcomer’s Cyberpunk game up to speed?
1. Consider Investing In The Luck Stat
Players coming from games like D&D know Attributes define their character’s base characteristics. And thanks to Luck, a player’s Edgerunner might just have an edge with risky choices. As a special mechanic from the Interlock system, players can spend points in their Luck stat to augment checks. Think of it as Edgerunners calling on Lady Luck to tip the scales on their favor.
Since Cyberpunk relies on style, attitude, and “edge,” players are always encouraged to take risks and stay stylish. The usual Luck mechanic needs players to declare how much Luck they’re adding before the roll. This requirement adds an element of risk, as players need to decide if this check is significant enough for a Luck boost. Luck points get replenished before the session ends.
