Cyberpunk 2077: How to play as Edgerunners Maine

Recently, the Netflix anime series Cyberpunk: Edgerunners has garnered a lot of attention, largely because of its superb storyline and flawless atmosphere, which perfectly capture the spirit of CD PROJEKT RED's open-world action role-playing game. The program has a ton of allusions, Easter eggs, and even a few nods to Mike Pondsmith's original tabletop role-playing game. The most lauded feature of Edgerunners is its narrative, which some fans even think is better than the game itself.

With powers, skills, cybernetic modifications, and weaponry straight out of Cyberpunk 2077, Edgerunners' numerous entertaining and engaging characters give the plot an immersive and exciting vibe. Since most show characters make use of the same resources and abilities found in the game, it is rather simple to recreate them in Cyberpunk 2077, resulting in some incredibly original and entertaining builds. Maine, a former soldier turned merciless mercenary who is seeking to make it big in Night City, is one of the most entertaining characters to base a build on.

One of the most potent characters in the series, Maine is a merciless murderer. The guy has a ton of cybernetic implants that increase his strength, and he isn't afraid to show off his raw power to anyone who challenges him. Maine has a much more durable build than the show's protagonist David and his friend Lucyna, who both rely heavily on cybernetic weaponry like Gorilla Arms and the Monowire. Maine's build places a lot of emphasis on damage resistance, immunity to passive affinities, and high health regeneration for quick recovery from damage. Maine is the only character in the show who always uses the same kind of weapons, like the projectile launcher and his go-to shotgun, which he later replaces with two smart shotguns.

Cyberwares necessary for the Maine build in Cyberpunk 2077

The following cybernetic enhancements are required for the Maine build in Cyberpunk 2077:


  • Projectile Launch System


  • Kerenzikov
  • Bionic Joints
  • Titanium Plating

The cyberwares selected for the construction are specifically needed to add more protection from all types of damage. The Bionic Joints allow for reduced recoil on weapons, which is important for the heavy shotguns utilized in this build, the Kerenzikov offers better reflexes and the ability to slow time during combat, and Titanium Plating is required for an increase in protection.

The L-69 ZHUO smart shotgun, which packs a lot of damage and allows for more precise firing thanks to the reduced recoil augmentation, is the best early choice for weapons. The BA XING CHONG smart shotgun is another option. It has been updated to be more powerful, but it has a lot more recoil than its lower-tier counterpart.

Attributes required for the Maine build in Cyberpunk 2077

The David Martinez and Rebecca builds are combined with the Maine build's talents. Players can use stronger weaponry like Rebecca while also wielding some seriously wicked cybernetic powers like David thanks to the mix of Body and Reflexes. The distribution of the attributes is as follows:

  • Body: 18
  • Reflexes: 15
  • Technical Competence: 18
  • Cool: 16

Cold Blood's "Coldest Blood" and "Cold and Calculating" skills are the two that should be taken into consideration when designing the build. Players will be able to deal massive amounts of damage with each shotgun round they fire at the opposition thanks to these two talents. Players should also stack points into reflexes and body abilities to improve their defensive stats and Projectile Launch System base damage. Due in part to its excessive dependence on sheer strength and heavy weaponry, while maintaining a high level of defense, the Maine build is without a doubt the most enjoyable to use in combat in Cyberpunk 2077. All of this lets players fight each other without ever having to hide.
