A lot of players have started playing Cyberpunk 2077 after the release of the Cyberpunk Edgerunners anime and they want to play the game as their favorite characters. Cyberpunk 2077 is very flexible when it comes to builds and character creations, so you can create a V that is the same as Kiwi. We have already covered a Lucy build. In this Cyberpunk 2077 guide, we go over how you can make a Kiwi build for your V.


How To Make A Cyberpunk Edgerunners Kiwi Build In Cyberpunk 2077

Kiwi is a master Netrunner and while her character is mysterious and we do not know too much about her, I have tried my best to make a Cyberpunk 2077 build that best reflects her abilities.

Life Path

The life path does not make much of an impact on the build but it does give you a cool start and potential dialogue options. Corpo or Streetkid both work for Kiwi. So you can pick whichever one you like the most. The game remains the same once you have completed the opening mission. So you can select the life path that you have not selected is you are a returning player and trying out a new game.


In terms of Cyberware, the Frontal Cortex part of your cyberdeck is going to be the most important. The following are the different components that I can recommend for this Cyberpunk 2077 Edgerunners Kisi build.

  • Tetratronic Rippler – This is one of the best cyberdecks that you can get since it decreases Quickhack Upload times by 75 and also reduces Quickhack cooldown times. You can get it from Viktor. If you do not have Tetratronic Rippler then you can get Netwatch, which is a decent alternative that the damage and spread of Quickhacks.
  • Visual Cortex – Increases Crit damage by 30%
  • Bioconductor – Critical hit chance on Quickhacks but lowers total RAM.
    Ex-Disk – Boosting RAM and Quickhack speed. Can be bought from Viktor’s place in Watson for 40,000 Eurodollars.
  • Optical Camo – You can get started by getting one from Ripper Doc in East Santa Domingo. Once you progress the game you can find better options.
  • Memory Boost – One of the most important pieces of Cyberware you can get. Increasing your RAM and regenerates RAM on kills.


The whole idea of playing as Kiwi is to spread Cyber Psychosis, Grenade Detonations, Weapon Glitches, and have enemies suicide. If you still want to use weapons then you are free to do so. The following are the weapons that we recommend for this Cyberpunk 2077 Edgerunners Kiwi build.

  • Raiju SMG – This is a tech SMG that has a great rate of fire, and you are able to hit headshots from a fair distance away. You can get it from one of the increased criminal activity events in Dogtown (Phantom Liberty).
  • Rosco Power Revolver – You can get the ROSCO power revolver from one of Fingers’ gigs called Waiting For Dodger. You will need to kill Dodger and loot the weapon from his body to get it. The power revolver does decent headshot damage and comes with armor penetration as well.

Attributes And Perks

Since Kiwi is a master Netrunner and you will rely heavily on Quickhacks, you will want to max out Intelligence as soon as possible. You should also spend some points on Cool for crit damage and stealth perks. You can also invest in Technical Ability for more armor and increased cyberwar capacity.

The following are some of the best perks that we can recommend for this Cyberpunk 2077 Edgerunners Kiwi build.
