Free Legendary Mantis Blades Weapons Location
After seeing how level restricted and expensive Mantis Blades you can imagine may surprise when I found ones to loot for free. Here’s a quick disclaimer: these showed up consistently in my save. I tried loading early and late save and they were always in the same chest. IF it does not show up in your game it means the game randomizes loot per character created and that would be insane. IF you don’t find them at the same spot I still think there’s a high chance you’ll find them in similar gigs.

I found mine in the Cyberpsycho encounter Phantom of Night City. The best part is you don’t need to fight the Cyberpsycho mini boss. There’s a chest at his location that contains the Mantis Blades. Run in and then loot them and run out. The earliest I managed to loot them was at level 8, just after the Heist main quest. They had a whopping 400DPS at such a low level and would one kill an enemy with heavy attacks. You can mod them to get better performance.
