The Cyberpunk 2077 Easter Egg You Missed In Dying Light 2

Players have been eager to jump into "Dying Light 2: Stay Human" ever since learning Techland was working on the zombie-infested sequel. Now that the game is finally out, players aren't wasting any time diving into the new open-world apocalypse head-first. Alongside the various gameplay improvements and updates the new title has made from the first game, Techland spared no shortage of effort filling out the zombie adventure with easter eggs and callbacks to the studio's previous projects, like the nearly forgotten "Dead Island" series.


Along with a bounty of easter eggs for games like "Resident Evil" and some references to the original "Dying Light," players might be able to find a relic that offers a nod to CD Projekt RED's "Cyberpunk 2077." It's not an easy secret to find, and it'll definitely take some work from the player, but this particular treasure is well worth the trouble. Here's how to find the easily missed "Cyberpunk 2077" easter egg in "Dying Light 2: Stay Human."

How To Get The Cyberhands 2177 Knuckledusters

If players want to track down the "Cyberpunk 2077" easter egg item, they'll first want to find the tallest building in the game (per Gamespot). While the VNC Tower can't be climbed by traditional means in the open world — regardless of a player's stamina level — players can reach the top of the lofty structure after completing the "Broadcast" story mission. After completing the mission, players can return to the VNC Tower and enter through the ground floor level to take an elevator to the top.


Once at the highest point in the game, players will want to climb the green structure to the left and then glide over to the next building that has an antenna atop it. From here, players can grab Military Tech cache and then head off, gliding to the next closest building. On the left side of this building's roof, players can encounter an NPC who makes some vague references that indicate he's formerly from Night City. After the character takes his leave, players will find the blueprint for the Cyberhands 2177 Knuckledusters.

What's The Significance Of The Cyberpunk 2077 Easter Egg In Dying Light 2: Stay Human?

While players may be ready to craft their Cyberhands 2177 Knuckledusters and get into some zombie action, it's worth knowing the relevance of the easter egg. For one, both Techland and CD Project RED are Polish developers famous for crafting large, open world RPGs, so there's little chance the two studios aren't aware of each other. While "Cyberpunk 2077" hasn't maintained the best reputation after its release, this is a nice way for Techland to acknowledge its compatriots without potentially taking a stance on the infamous game itself.


The Cyberhands 2177 Knuckledusters themselves are more than the brass knuckles one might expect, as they feature fold-out blades very similar to the iconic Mantis Blades from "Cyberpunk 2077."

Whether added as some kind of a shout out to fellow Polish developers, or as a sign that the team at Techland really did enjoy "Cyberpunk 2077" in spite of its flaws, players can reap the rewards in "Dying Light 2: Stay Human" by adding this awesome weapon to their arsenal. From there, they should definitely track down those awesome finger guns.
