How to holster your weapon in Cyberpunk 2077

To holster your weapon in Cyberpunk 2077 you’ll need to hold down the ALT key to bring up the quick-select menu. From here, you can select the red gun icon.

Why holster your weapon?

Having a weapon drawn in Cyberpunk 2077 can make characters around you slightly nervous. There’s no real downside to this, except you might get some obscenities thrown your way now and again. I mostly put weapons away to free up the screen a bit, making it easier to see loot and conversation options.

That’s how to put your weapons away in Cyberpunk 2077. For more on the game be sure to check out our full soundtrack breakdown. Elsewhere there’s our look at the characters that you can romance.
