How to Beat Royce in Cyberpunk 2077

You will find Royce when you play the mission called The Pickup. And via the actions you take in the mission there will be a few ways in which you can set up a fight with Royce.

Royce will have a shield and a suit that you need to scan to search for his weak points. You can observe that his weak points would be around his lower back and you can repeatedly try to hit him there. Note – all this while you will have to keep a distance and hide behind objects to avoid the rockets he’ll be bombarding you with. You can use weapons to aim from a distance and try to accurately hit him in the weak spot which should take him out quickly.

After you defeat Royce you will get yourself an Iconic item along with a set of Crafting Specs.

How to Skip Royce Boss Battle

Alternatively, you can skip the fight with Royce altogether by going to the Maelstroms gang without the money chip that you receive from Meredith Stout. There Royce will come to you and make you an offer and ask you to pay double for the bot.

Follow the given dialogues and you can get yourself a quick win:

Expect me to pay twice? > Prepared to offer us a discount? > Draw weapon and kill him right away

After you kill Royce, you can smoothly proceed and will not have to deal with him further. It will be a smart way to skip the Royce Boss Battle.

Cyberpunk released recently to much hype and fanfare. Night City will surely make the gamers immersed in it like none other open-world game before. The intricate details are top-notch. However, after several delays in the launch, some audio-video bugs still remain.
