Cyberpunk 2077 Bunnyhopping Is Faster Than Any Car You Can Find
Bunnyhopping is letting players propel V at ridiculous speeds across the game, and it's already being heavily used by speedrunners.
Cyberpunk 2077 launched in rough shape, and even though developer CD Projekt Red has addressed some issues with various hotfix patches the reality is that the open-world RPG still has numerous issues. One such issue allows you to propel yourself across the highways faster than any vehicle, and it's already being put to good use.
Bunnyhopping shouldn't be unfamiliar to you if you've watch a speedrun or two. With careful input and care for momentum conservation, players can turn a simple forward hop into a cascade of acceleration that sometimes never hits a ceiling. Cyberpunk 2077 doesn't go that far, but it's clear from some videos (via Rock Paper Shotgun) that you can build up a ridiculous amount of speed on foot as V.
In a city filled with cybernetic limbs, having characters move this fast doesn't seem as out of the ordinary as it might in other games. Yet it's clearly not a method of movement the game was designed for. Despite that, it's become a big part of the blossoming speedrunning scene the game has already fostered, with improvements allowing for the technique to be used without any special augmentations required.
It's unclear if this is a bug CD Projekt Red will eventually address but considering it's both challenging to pull off and not entirely detrimental to most player's experiences it's unlikely that it'll be looked at soon. Players are enjoying picking apart the developer's latest title, with a recent mod even allowing you to play in third-person. We don't recommend it if you're looking to avoid additional potential issues while making your way through Night City.
