One of many side jobs in Night City is called Shoot to Thrill. Though it seems relatively easy at first, it can be frustrating to win the exhibition. Here, Wilson’s set up a shooting tournament, and he wants you to participate. If you want the Lexington Iconic Pistol as the grand prize, you may be looking for a little help. Here’s how to win and place first in Shoot to Thrill in Cyberpunk 2077.

How to Win and Place First in Shoot to Thrill in Cyberpunk 2077

You’ll have to bring your own gun and ammo for Shoot to Thrill, but remember that only pistols are allowed. Wilson will disqualify you if you try to use a different gun.

After you start Act 2 and finish the quest Playing for Time, Wilson will contact you and invite you to participate in a shooting tournament he’s setting up. The tournament takes place at a shooting range in Megabuilding H10 instead of his normal gun shop, which you might recognize as the location of your apartment.

How to Win: Placement Requirements

If you come in second place, you’ll only earn Street Cred. So, you’ll want to hit targets a total of 100 times within the 60-second limit. While this sounds like a lot, the key to winning first place is the knowledge that you can hit the same target multiple times, and those hits count toward the 100 you need.

If you’re quick enough, you can hit each target up to 10 times. Because of this, it’s useful to use a pistol that has a decent magazine capacity, as reloading will cut into the time you have to fire at the targets in the range.

And that’s how to win and place first in Shoot to Thrill in Cyberpunk 2077. After you complete your round at the shooting range, speak with Wilson again to claim your Lexington Iconic Pistol.
