In Cyberpunk 2077, especially with the new Phantom Liberty expansion, having the right weapon can be the difference between life and death. One such weapon that you should aim to acquire is the Dying Night pistol—a unique and powerful firearm that offers a range of features to give you the upper hand in combat. This guide is designed to walk you through every step you’ll need to take to get your hands on this iconic weapon, from completing specific missions to understanding its stats and features.
How To Get Dying Night
To acquire the Dying Night, you’ll first need to complete a mission called “The Rescue.” This mission serves as an introduction to the game and is one of the first tasks you’ll undertake. Once you’ve successfully completed “The Rescue,” make your way to your apartment building and head to the seventh floor. Here, you’ll find a gun shop known as “The 2nd Amendment,” conveniently situated right across from the elevator. Strike up a conversation with the vendor and browse through the available weapons. You’ll notice that one of the guns is marked with an exclamation point, indicating that it’s free. Select this weapon to add the Dying Night to your arsenal. This action also completes a side quest named “The Gun.”
But that’s not the only way to get the Dying Night. You can also earn it by winning a shooting contest in the “Shoot to Thrill” side mission. To participate, you’ll need to find Wilson, the organizer of the contest. If you manage to outscore your competitors, Wilson will reward you with the Dying Night as a prize.
Weapon Stats and Features
The Dying Night is a Power type pistol, which means its bullets have the ability to ricochet off surfaces. It weighs 4.3 and has a damage range of 89-109. The weapon is particularly effective for headshots, offering a 50% increase in headshot damage. Additionally, it has a reduced reload time, making it a fast and efficient choice for combat.

Crafting and Upgrades
Once you obtain the Dying Night in its uncommon form, you’ll automatically receive the crafting specifications for its Rare, Epic, and Legendary versions. This enables you to upgrade the weapon as you level up and gather more crafting materials.
