While Cyberpunk 2077's launch has been plagued with issues such as bugs and low performance, Night City is still a tempting place to visit. In an early side quest, you might think you can't get your gun from Wilson due to a bug, and even check the new hotfix 1.04 patch notes to see if there's any mention of the quest.

Check out our massive guides on everything Cyberpunk 2077 in one place if you plan on taking a trip to Night City.

Warning: Minor early game spoilers ahead.

How to get your gun from Wilson in Cyberpunk 2077

Straight after you've completed your Lifepath's introductory section, there's a side quest in Cyberpunk 2077 asking you to go and get your gun from an NPC called Wilson.

This quest isn't necessary to continue a gun but with everything being so expensive in Night City, an extra weapon is always nice. 

We were stuck for nearly 15 minutes on this side quest which should take less than one minute if you know how to get your gun from Wilson.

First off, Wilson is the owner of the 2nd Amendment shop (the gun shop) in V's apartment complex. He is on the main floor of your building as you exit the gym area, so you can't really miss him.

What you can miss, however, is your gun called the Dying Night. It is an uncommon pistol with some nice bonus damage to headshot, and definitely something you want to pick up.

The quest simply guides you to talk to Wilson but when you do, your only dialogue option is "Let's see what you have" which opens the shopkeeper's inventory.

This is confusing as there are a lot of weapons and items to purchase with your limited currency. It is where we got stuck, as the game's inventory/shop system doesn't outline quest items such as the gun you need to collect from Wilson.

However, if you look closely, the Dying Night costs absolutely nothing, so you can just select and purchase it without spending any money, effectively "collecting"  your gun from Wilson in Cyberpunk 2077.

Hopefully, this Cyberpunk 2077 guide helped you easily collect your gun from Wilson, and you didn't waste as much time as we did trying to figure it out.
