Cyberpunk 2077 is full of amusing bugs – here are our favorites
Buckle up, there’s a bunch of them.
We’ve been waiting for Cyberpunk 2077, the sprawling open-world RPG from CDPR, to release for many years. Well, it’s finally here, with all the beauty and grit that Night City can offer. It also comes with a huge list of bugs and glitches, that we’ll likely amuse ourselves with before the developer fixes them in a future patch.
I mean, we kinda expect frame rate issues or other minor glitches with any major launch nowadays, and the usual Day 1 patch. Some of the glitches seem to be driver issues, as updated drivers make them go away. We scoured Twitter to find our favorite glitches and gameplay bugs, so read on for a light-hearted look at the current state of the game.
Here are some of our favorite glitches in Cyberpunk 2077
From random trees to disembodied heads, it’s all here.
When you really, really get ahead of yourself…

Trees, trees everywhere. Pretty sure that even your cyber eyes aren’t supposed to be able to see through walls at all times

And more tiny trees. If you see this, go update your Nvidia graphics driver, that should fix it.
I knew Cyberpunk 2077 was going to be glitchy but I did not expect my entire game to be covered with tiny trees pic.twitter.com/YGpHYUTUTS

Or not… for a cyberpunk future where resources are scarce, there sure are a fuckton of trees
This is my cyberpunk experience so far. Started the game and this bug follows me around the whole area. Years in development with constant delays. This game still needs a lot of work! #Cyberpunk2077pic.twitter.com/4EkWDFFFdQ

Did… CDPR build Cyberpunk 2077 on top of the glitchy engine from The Witcher 2?
It seems that the texture bug from Witcher 2 and 3 is also happening in cyberpunk pic.twitter.com/eG8BNTiEeN

Not sure how this was actually supposed to work, maybe they’re missing the rickshaw? Either way, it’s nice to have a buddy to carry you through sticky situations.

I guess this might be a feature? Giddy-up!
I don't mind bugs in games if they're not horrible. I don't even know if this was a bug in #Cyberpunk2077. Maybe they just like piggy back rides and I came in being all judgmental. pic.twitter.com/myvg8ipzf5

Yep, those burgers look almost sentient

In the future, we don’t need to open doors

Oh, Uber’s flying taxis finally exist

Apparently, chairs are difficult in the future

I think maybe some character animations were modeled on Assassin’s Creed Unity

Computer, enhance. No wait, don’t do that

Blink and you miss him… not great when you have to kill then pilfer through his pockets
So this is one of the bugs i ran into on #Cyberpunk2077… i eventually killed him but then I needed to search his body to progress in the mission but there was no action to do so… pic.twitter.com/Mn2rLfQRS5

Is this what they meant by “Ghost in the Machine”?

Okay, we’ve had enough laughing at CDPR for Cyberpunk 2077. They’ve got a good track record of fixing bugs after release so we’ll just wait until then. I mean, anyone remember how bad some of the Witcher 3 bugs were?

Anyway, for any open-world RPG of this level of scope, we’d be surprised if there were zero bugs on release. Seriously, there’s a point when you need to just ship the game, and fix issues afterward. CDPR has a good track record for not abandoning games after release and fixing issues and even adding free DLC. I can’t see Cyberpunk 2077 being any different, so maybe just wait for the fixes to be in if you don’t have FOMO to play it right now.
Whatever bugs there are, the world of Cyberpunk 2077 is the new benchmark for what open-world game design can aspire to. The sheer amount of things to do and see in the sprawling Night City is staggering, and I’m only a few hours into my first playthrough. We’ll have a review up in due time, but until then, cya chooms.
