Cyberpunk 2077 Speedrunner Uses Cyberware To Outrun Vehicles

YouTuber Max Dakka has found a brand new technique that adds an edge to the speedrunning of Cyberpunk 2077, combining the maneuvering system and reinforced tendons cyberware to simulate a bunnyhopping-like technique that lets players outrun the cars of Night City.

Bunnyhopping is a staple of gaming, whether it was the good ol’ times in Half-Life where you could shoot past the enemies faster than their bullets could leave their guns, or get to the point in Counter-Strike before the enemy had a chance to leave spawn. Naturally, it’s something people yearn to recreate in other FPS’, so it was bound to pop up in Cyberpunk.

Using the cyberware upgrades, Max Dakka was able to dodge just before landing a jump which allowed for him to get a boost which he could then, in turn, chain, allowing for him to speed past the vehicles on the street. If it’s faster than driving from A to B, then it’s a must for a speedrunner to shave off those precious few seconds.

Whether this is a bug or a by-product of the cyberware instalments is up in the air given Cyberpunk 2077’s less-than-stellar launch, but hopefully, with how much players love to bunnyhop, it sticks around for a little while longer.

Naturally, some of the cars just pop into thin air given that Max is moving so fast. The game has to fight hard to keep up. That’s a good sign that a speedrunner is doing something right since it shows that the developers haven’t quite accounted for someone going that speed which means that, in all likelihood, it probably is a bug.

It’s not quite the Demon’s Souls glitch that let players beat the game in 17 minutes, but it’ll be interesting to see how the community uses it nonetheless. The current world record, without loads, is 3 hours, 3 minutes, and 50 seconds. Swapping out a car for some bunnyhops might add up and, who knows, perhaps it’ll result in a sub-3-hours time.
