Cyberpunk 2077 Dev Opens Up About the Overabundance of Dildos in Night City
What's the deal with dildos?
There are many questions gamers have had about Cyberpunk 2077 since its messy launch last week. Questions regarding the game’s many issues like, “who approved this for console release?” and “can I get a refund?” circled people’s minds. However, those who are able to look past the bugs, or have a beefy enough PC rig, started asking, “what’s up with all the dildos?”
When exploring Night City, players have found copious amounts of sex toys scattered in every nook and cranny of the massively open-world. Cyberpunk 2077 is obviously set in a world where these sorts of taboo things are more commonplace, however, people are finding dildos in places where they don’t make sense. Behind dumpsters, inside office file cabinets, even in grimy warehouses, the dildos are everywhere. Luckily for those wondering, a representative from CD Project Red cleared things up.
CDPR explained to Business Insider that dildos, like all of the other “junk” items in the game, are distributed randomly throughout the world. For example, in one playthrough you might find a deck of cards on a table, but in a different playthrough, there might be a dildo in that same spot instead of the cards.
Apparently I'm playing Cyberpunk wrong because my friend already has 4 dildos and I have 0???
Where the dongs at?

When talking to Business Insider, CDPR said, “We were still tweaking those settings, so especially during the early reviews, the amount of dildos in the game world was pretty high.” They went on to say, “We wanted Night City to be pretty open sexually, where something by today’s standards might be taboo or kinky is very normal and commonplace by 2077 standards.”
At the end of the day, the disproportionate amount of dildos isn’t one of the many bugs people have been sharing from Cyberpunk 2077, but it definitely wasn’t an intentional feature.
