Mantis Blades were first showcased in the first trailer of “Cyberpunk 2077” in 2013 and have since then become an icon of the ARPG title. The game officially launched on Dec. 10 allowing players to get their hands on the legendary weapon. The Mantis Blades are one of the most iconic weapons in Cyberpunk 2077. Whether you’re going for a full melee build using the blades or you just want to supplement your firefights with the occasional melee takedown, they’re a perfect fit for any Cyberpunk player.
You won’t be able to get them until you increase your Street Cred to a certain level and they’re quite expensive to boot. However, there is a way to obtain Mantis Blades for free and without the need to fire a single shot.
How To Get Free Legendary Mantis Blades
In Act 2, you can access all parts of the game. Go to City Center, Corpo Plaza, and check the northwest corner to receive the quest “Cyberpsycho Sighting: Phantom of Night City” from a fixer call.
You must save the game before entering the side job area. This is because there are times when the Mantis Blades would not spawn. If this happens, it is easier for them to reload the game, start the latest game progress and try again.
Enter the alley and look for a loot chest on the right — the chest is marked with a “!” so it’s easy to spot. Grab the Mantis Blades and get out of there. If it is not available, just reload the last save and repeat the process until the legendary weapon appears in the chest.
Go to any Ripperdoc to install the Mantis Blades for free. Now you can look just like that blade-armed lady from the original trailer!
