Cyberpunk 2077 Guide: How to get the fabled Mantis Blades for free in Cyberpunk 2077? The Mantis Blades, introduced in the first Cyberpunk 2077 trailer, have become a fascination for players. Here is a guide on how to unlock the Mantis Blades for free & where you can find them.
The Mantis Blades are surely the most sought after melee weapons in Cyberpunk 2077. Especially for those who love using blades, these knives will be a delight. The Mantis Blades are a pair dual-blades which are fixed on your characters forearms. Much like Assassins Creed, these blades remain hidden until you use them.
However, before you embed your custom Mantis Blades on V’s body, you first need to be able to unlock them or at least find them. Purchasing them can be quite tiresome as they are expensive. They cost 16,000 eddies & you also need a minimum of 20 street creds to unlock them.
However, recently, players have discovered a way to get them early in the game & even for free. So, here are the steps you need to follow to get your hands on the Mantis Blades in Cyberpunk 2077. Check out the video by JorRaptor as he gets his hands on the Mantis Blades.
You can get legendary mantis blades for free & very early in Cyberpunk 2077!

How to get Mantis Blades free in Cyberpunk 2077?
- Travel to the Corpo Plaza in the City Centre District.
- Make note of the side job marker on the map, in the upper-left-hand area outside of the large traffic circle.
- Make your way to the side job location.
- Save your game before entering the side job area (sometimes, the Mantis Blades may not spawn. If this happens you can re-load your last save and try again).
- Enter the side job area and look for a chest on the right-hand wall, just past a body on the ground
- Loot the chest, and you should see the Mantis Blades available. If the blades do not appear, re-load your last save and repeat the process until they do.
- At this point, you can either exit the area and avoid fighting the side job’s boss.
- Go to a ripperdoc (Ideally Viktor) to install the Mantis Blades.
The Mantis Blades are a powerful cyber-enhancement in the game. They also deal heavy damage in hand-to-hand combat and they will surely assist you in taking down stronger opponents. You can also mod them to have special effects.
