How to Get First Place in Shoot to Thrill

To win Shoot to Thrill, you first need to get a stable handgun that doesn’t have much recoil. The best gun for Shoot to Thrill is Dying Night. I also recommend getting the Quiet Santa Vista Mark IV cyberwar mod. You can use cyberware cheat codes to get it if you don’t already have it in your inventory.


You can get Dying Night free from the 2nd Amendment gun shop after completing The Rescue main quest.

Before you enter the 2nd Amendment gun shop for Shoot to Thrill, make to craft enough ammo. You don’t want to run out of ammo while you’re trying to get to first place in Shoot to Thrill. Also, play on unlocked frame rates with V-Sync off to reduce latency and turn on DLSS for further improvements in the latency department.

Winning Shoot to Thrill in Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t rocket science. The entire gig is about being fast, and hitting your target as accurately as possible. The Quiet Santa Vista Mark IV mod will help you slow down time while you shoot. It also reduces the cooldown time for it so you can slow down time more frequently.
