Skippy is actually a weapon that appears as part of one of the many open world quests you can come across in Cyberpunk 2077. To find the weapon, you’re going to want to fast travel to the College Street fast travel point in Vista Del Ray. We’ve included a map screenshot below.

You should see an exclamation point near the fast travel point, if you approach it, you’ll find an alleyway with a dead body in it. Skippy the gun is laying on a case. Grab it to boot it up and add it to your inventory. The thing that makes Skippy so unique is the gun’s built-in AI. The gun feels like something out of Borderlands, but it’s actually a lot of fun to make use of throughout the game.

You can upgrade Skippy from the Crafting menu, as the base DPS and stats really aren’t that impressive, but it does scale with the user’s level. By default, Skippy offered the following stats when we picked it up:

  • 152.4 DPS
  • 4.55 Attacks Per Second
  • +21-26 Electrical Damage
  • +37.39% Crit Damage
  • +6% Shock Chance
  • 70 Headshot Damage Multiplier
  • 2 Empty Mod Slots

When upgraded, the rarity of the weapon will increase, and additional mod spots can be unlocked as well, allowing you to make it stronger in other ways, too.
