Cyberpunk 2077 has a ton of awesome weapons. Depending on your build or personal preference, you might be fond of handguns. If you’ve been playing for a while, you’re likely aware that there are a handful of different weapons to choose from. So in this guide, we will show you where to find our picks for the best pistol Night City has to offer.
What is the Best Pistol in Cyberpunk 2077?
There are a couple of really good pistols in Night City, but only a few are among the best. Below are our top three picks for the best pistol in Cyberpunk 2077:
How to Get the Lizzie Pistol
One of the best pistols is the Lizzie, and you can get it fairly early on. For the mission, “Automic Love,” you will head to Lizzie’s Bar in Watson that is run by one of the city’s least dangerous gangs, the Moxes.
Go downstairs to meet the lovely Judy and once you are in the basement of her office, turn to the left to see a table with a shiny gun. Now you have Lizzie. Since it is a tech weapon, that means you can charge it for a powerful shot that can go through cover to hit enemies who think they are safe behind something.
Lizzie goes beyond being a normal tech pistol as it does 17-21 thermal damage, 1.96 charge multiplier, 13 percent burning damage, and 1.20 headshot damage multiplier. It also has an empty mod slot, so use something special for this pink gun.

How to Get Johnny Silverhand’s Pistol
Following the long series of quests that connect to your relationship with Johnny Silverhand will lead you to “Chippin’ In.” Towards the end of this quest, you will have a choice to spare or kill Grayson. It does not matter what you choose — you will be rewarded with the all-powerful Malorian Arms 3516 aka the Johnny Silverhand Pistol. It has 84-102 thermal damage along with four empty mod slots.
While it still packs a punch, enough to be one of the best pistols in the game, it will not feel as strong as the flashbacks where you are in Johnny’s shoes. If you need more help, be sure to check out our Johnny Silverhand weapon guide.
How to Get the Skippy Talking Gun
If you are around College St. Metro Station in Heywood, then you can find the goofiest gun in the game that will give some serious Borderlands vibes. Head down to a nearby quest marker to find a cardboard obstacle to climb up. Turn to your left to find a dead body and Skippy’s Talking Gun.
This smart pistol will have two mod slots along with the gun’s personality. Be prepared to listen to this gun talk to you constantly as you use it. If you need more help, here’s a detailed guide on how to get Skippy.
Now that you know our picks for the best pistol in Cyberpunk 2077, you have plenty to choose from when taking people out in Night City.
