Some of the assaults in progress that you come across in Cyberpunk 2077 will require you to find evidence after dealing with the bad guys situated around the location. Most of the time this evidence can be found inside of storage containers that are clearly marked, however, other instances might be a bit trickier to locate, making it hard to complete the world event.

Use your scanner to locate the containers or bodies with the evidence tied to them.

If you’re struggling to find the evidence, then try checking any storage containers or even bodies around the area. Many times the evidence you need to find can be found in the pockets of the enemies that you’ve killed, and can also include data shards that you need to read in order to complete the objective. Because of this, we recommend reading any data shards you come across during these open world events, just to remove the possibility of not picking up the evidence that you need to complete the crime.

Now that you understand the crime system a bit more and know how to find evidence, you can check out our guide on bounty hunting and even our article breaking down how to make money for those out there looking to pad their wallets.
