Get One Of Cyberpunk 2077's Best Melee Weapons For Free


You can find many armaments in Cyberpunk 2077. One, in particular, is an iconic weapon that has deadly modifiers and perks that turn you into a whirling dervish in melee. Our guide discusses how you can get the Errata Thermal Katana in Cyberpunk 2077 for free just by exploring Night City.

How to get the Errata Thermal Katana in Cyberpunk 2077

There are a couple of ways to obtain the Cyberpunk 2077 Errata Thermal Katana:

  • If you own the Phantom Liberty expansion and have a lot of cash, you can just purchase it from the Black Market Vendor in the EBM Petrochem Stadium. However, this costs 110,638 credits.
  • Alternatively, those who only own the base game, as well as players that want to save up on a lot of cash, might want to grab it for free. You can see its relative location on the map below:
Use the Republic East fast travel point in Santo Domingo.

Errata Thermal Katana location

To get a free Errata Thermal Katana in Cyberpunk 2077, check the district of Santo Domingo in the eastern portion of the map. There's a fast travel point called Republic East, and you should go there. Once you spawn, you'll see a large building owned by the Electric Corporation just across the street. Head to the side and mantle over the gate to reach the yard (you'll also spot the Justice Tarot Card nearby).

Once inside the facility, take note of the cameras. You can disable these via quickhacks, or by interacting with the terminals that power them. Also, as far as we can tell, there are no enemies in the area (though we also didn't get spotted by the defenses and cameras).

As you head deeper into the facility, you'll notice that something's amiss: It seems that the building is being used as a front for illicit and depraved braindance activities, and numerous netrunner corpses litter the hallways. Here's what you need to do next:

  • Head downstairs past the wall sign that says Sector 0.
  • Continue further down to the lower levels, where you'll see the "Keep Donors Sedated" graffiti above a doorway. You can open it by using your Technical Ability 20 stat.
  • In the next chamber, you'll see a furnace with several corpses scattered around. You can pick up the Errata from the furnace.

Errata Thermal Katana features

The Errata iconic weapon has the following features:

  • Modifiers: +25% armor penetration; +30% burn chance.
  • Perks: Allows you to leap toward enemies; attacking burning enemies guarantees crit damage.
Fittingly enough, you'll find the Errata Thermal Katana inside a furnace.

As you can see, the Cyberpunk 2077 Errata Thermal Katana is certainly a viable melee weapon due to the burn debuff application. Moreover, you can use it effectively by selecting certain perks/skills and Relic abilities that complement close-quarters combat. Lastly, this Thermal Katana is just one of many iconic weapons that you can acquire while exploring Night City and Dogtown in Phantom Liberty.
