Yesterday, a short clip was posted on the Cyberpunk 2077 subreddit of what some kids are up to. This led to several threads in which players discussed how horrible it was to be a kid in Night City. Some noted with regret that even children in the game do not “work” as intended by the developers.
The video shows very expensive apartments. Mommy floor, good furniture, plants. However, the children sit on the floor in front of their mother. One child plays with an empty can of soda, another with a gun.
It’s hard to say if this is a bug, because in one of the screenshots of Cyberpunk 2077 there was a child wearing a VR helmet and holding a toy gun. But this clip creates an image that parents do not care about children so much that they can freely play with garbage and weapons. Moreover, there are other animations of children with weapons in the game.
What else do children do in Knight City:
- Sitting alone in the alleys
- Examining a corpse in a random alley
- Carry weapons
- Disappeared if you switch to photo mode
- Survive after being hit by a car
As some point out, the kids in Knight City do have real weapons. However, like most NPCs. One gamer said that if you shoot at the ground or the sky near a child, the child will drop the gun and you can pick it up (the gun).
Other gamers say there is nothing surprising about these scenes. Just look at the mother of these two children in the video. An empty gaze directed somewhere to the horizon. This is closer to reality than it seems.
