The samurai jacket is one of the most sought out bits of gear in Cyberpunk 2077.
It’s not overpowered or broken at all, but is mainly used for acquiring more street cred which can be a taxing thing to grind out.
This guide will show you how to get the samurai jacket in Cyberpunk 2077.
Progress Through the Main Storyline
To get the samurai jacket, you will first need to progress through the main storyline first until you meet up with the Voodoo Boys gang.
After finishing the M’ap Taan Pelen main job, you will be able to unlock a side job called “Chippin’ In”. This will lead you back to Rogue, assuming you have met her already in the bar.
You will talk to Johnny after and you will allow Johnny Silverhand to take over after taking the pills.
You’ll now play as Johnny Silverhand for a second time, after using him previously during the main storyline.
To avoid more spoilers, just keep progressing through the objectives, and eventually, you will end up with Rogue taking you somewhere. You will find the samurai jacket inside the trunk once Rogue takes you to this location.
Once you find it, you will be able to pick up the samurai jacket, but then you will still have to finish Rogue’s task to complete the side job.
Benefits of Using the Samurai Jacket
As you may already know, getting street cred is extremely taxing to do. Sometimes, you just want to grow a bit faster to gain access to more perks. The samurai jacket gives you a 5% street cred bonus to every street cred reward.
You will want to increase your street cred all the way to 50 to gain more access to more Cyberware from Ripperdocs, weapons from vendors, weapon mods and attachments to your guns, and more clothing options in stores. You can even unlock a few legendary weapons from vendors in the long run.
Not only this, it also just looks cool.
What to Do Next?
To get the samurai jacket in Cyberpunk 2077, work through the main storyline until you have the option of completing the Chippin’ In side job. You’ll find the jacket at the start of this job, but you’ll need to complete the whole mission.
The samurai jacket is one of the most sought out gear just because of the street cred bonus it gives. It allows players to efficiently gain more street cred while doing everything Night City has to offer.
Getting this as fast as possible is high on the priority list, so you will be able to unlock more things quicker and reach the max street cred level before the end of the main storyline.
