Cyberpunk 2077 speedrunners find a bunny exploit

Cyberpunk 2077 speedrunners find a bunny exploit

 If you have fond memories of overusing the physics of jumping from video games using bunny hopping (aka bunny hop or literally "rabbit jumping") at absurd speeds through Quake, Thief, or Half-Life (until it was fixed), you get the pleasure of seeing him return in a slightly different form in Cyberpunk 2077 .

User Max Dakka demonstrates this technique in the video above. To try it yourself, you need to install cyberimplants. Get the maneuvering system upgrade that allows you to dodge in the air, and you'll probably need reinforced tendons for that nice double jump as well. The secret to increasing your movement speed is to dodge just before landing after jumping. Every time you do this, you get a boost, and chaining up the boosts will soon make you move faster than cars.

In Max Dakka's running on the ring road, you can see that cars sometimes disappear when V approaches, as this is clearly a higher speed than the game developers expected.

The same exploit was documented on Reddit by Hank_Jenkins and Strikielol, which also combined it with a katana and a bunch of enemies to turn Cyberpunk 2077 into a Ghostrunner.

I personally don't mind if CD Projekt Red doesn't fix this. I watch with pleasure as speedrunners compete for the best time, waving their arms around Knight City.
