Lucyna Kushinada, or Lucy, is an infamous netrunner from the Cyberpunk: Edgerunners anime. She makes her debut in the first few episodes and becomes well-known throughout the show for her signature netrunner and Monowire skills. You know, the super thin yet deadly whip-like weapon. If you want to recreate Lucy’s build in Cyberpunk 2077, we’ll show you precisely what you need and where to get it.
The Lucy Build in Cyberpunk 2077
- Cyberdeck: Netwatch Netdriver MK.5
- Arms: Monowire
To replicate Lucy’s build, we’ll be using the Monowire arms and Netwatch Netdriver MK.5 Cyberdeck. The Monowire is currently the strongest melee weapon in Cyberpunk 2077, and it now scales with Reflexes. Its long range and high damage make for a fun playthrough, and we’ll explain how to get more out of it by getting the right perks and attributes.
In earlier episodes of Edgerunners, Lucy also easily evades people and camouflages herself. You can pick up the Optical Camo Cyberware for 28,000 eddies from the Ripperdoc in Rancho Coronado, Santo Domingo. He sells rare and legendary versions of the Optical Camo.
You can improve the base build using the Kerenzikov (aim and shoot while sliding and dodging) and the Maneuvering System (perform dodges in mid-air). Both are available from the Ripperdoc in Arroyo, Santo Domingo. Other Cyberware from the Ripperdoc in Pacifica, like the Ex-Disk (more RAM), Visual Cortex Support (more crit damage), and Heal On Kill, also complement the build.
As for stats, you already know we’re focusing on Reflexes, Intelligence, and Body. See below for the full build.
Important Blades perks include Deathbolt for more movement speed and health regeneration and Fiery Blast for increased damage to enemies missing health.
Intelligence: Breach Protocol
An important Breach Protocol perk is Mass Vulnerability to reduce enemy resistance and increase quickhack damage.
Important Quickhacking perks are Subliminal Message, Critical Error, and Bloodware for more hacking damage.
Important Ninjutsu perks are Crouching Tiger and Ghost.
Cool: Cold Blood
Important Cold Blood perks are Cold Blood, Blood Brawl, and Predator.

The Monowire can be purchased from the Ripperdoc in the City Center, Downtown region of Night City, for around 35,000 eddies.
The version mentioned above is the legendary variant of the Monowire, and requires 35 Street Cred. However, there’s also the rare Monowire, which can be purchased from the Ripperdoc in Kabuki, Watson, for only 13,000 eddies.
Where to Get the Netwatch Netdriver MK.5 in Cyberpunk 2077
The Netwatch Netdriver MK.5 can be purchased from the Ripperdoc in Wellsprings, Heywood, for about 30,000 eddies.
The version above is the legendary variant, which requires 50 Street Cred. Lower-level players can pick this up from the Ripperdoc in the Kabuki, Watson. As a bonus, this Ripperdoc also sells the legendary Raven Microcyber MK.4, another great Cyberdeck.
