The Truth About Cyberpunk 2077's Smoking Robots

At this point, is there anything that would surprise you about the wacky mess that is Cyberpunk 2077? With all its bugs and glitches, gamers are coming to suspect that anything unusual in CD Projekt Red's sci-fi action game is some sort of mistake. One example of a perceived glitch recently surfaced on Reddit.


A user by the name of DeconTheGame posted a video where they used a glitch to enter room 1242 of a motel. The post implied that the room was not designed to be a playable part of the game, which begs the question of why the devs would have put any thought into what's going on behind those walls.

Considering the rather adult nature of Cyberpunk 2077, one might suspect something of a more private nature going on in 1242. Instead, what DeconTheGame found were two robots enjoying a nice game of cards while smoking. Operating under the assumption that this was a glitch, one might be wondering why such a specific scene was hidden away in such an obscure area. Was it truly a glitch?

CD Projekt Red has previously apologized for the state of the released game, which has been full of some pretty hilarious bugs. With that in mind, one might humorously surmise that the devs over at CD Projekt Red created an Easter egg in the off-chance that someone were to accidentally clip through the motel wall.


After seeing this footage, it would be easy to wonder whether these robot pals were randomly generated NPCs. A quick dive into the thread, however, reveals that this was no chance pairing. Other players have confirmed that they've found the same pair.

If you dive even deeper, there's a bit of a plot twist that reveals the truth about these cigarette-smoking bots. While the Reddit post was framed as a glitch, some other experienced Cyberpunk 2077 players have reported that this small scene wasn't made in error. One Redditor explained, "you can get into the room without a glitch if your strength is high enough." Another, who "played the game three times," confirmed this claim. It seems that these two smoking bots were always meant to be found, eventually.

Cyberpunk 2077's reputation has reached a point where it's difficult to tell the difference between what's intended and what's glitched. While this may not actually be one of the weirdest locations you can visit in Cyberpunk 2077, it's certainly been a good conversation starter.
