If you're looking to shoot your way through most of your time in Night City and the surrounding Badlands, getting the best Cyberpunk 2077 submachine gun is a definite must.
What is the Best Cyberpunk 2077 Submachine Gun?
When it comes to submachine guns in Cyberpunk 2077, you have two options.
The first is the Fenrir, which is an "Iconic" variant of the M221 Saratoga. The second is the DS1 Pulsar, which is a "Legendary" submachine gun that can be bought from a shop in the "Watson" district for nearly 48 thousand eddies.
We're inclined to go with the former for two reasons: it's "Iconic" and it's available early on in the game.
Another thing that makes Fenrir so good is that it does thermal damage. This is perfect for long drawn out fights, which is very common in Cyberpunk 2077. Not to mention, it has three attachment slots available as well.
How to Get the Best Cyberpunk 2077 Submachine Gun
Although you can always come back for the gun later in the game, it's best to pick it as soon as you can.
The Fenrir is available during the "Sacrum Profanum" side job during Act 1 of the game.
To activate the quest, all you have to do is to talk to the monk that can be found near the fast travel spot near the Docks. Then, all you have to do next is to finish the quest and rescue the hostage.
You'll find the Fenrir sitting beside the captive monk.
