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.

  2. G

  3. K

    Not there for me – none of these ‘free legendary spots’ are there for me.

    1. J

      They are they just don’t show up in the box content. Try going to the ripper doc and check

    They are there for me 13 Dec, every time I load they’re there. Only thing is when I pick them up, they aren’t in my inventory. Everything else out of the box is. What a weird and frustrating bug…

      They are not in your weapons inventory. They should be in your Backpack, under Cyberware tab or when you visit a ripperdoc under Arms, ready for installation.

    Sandeveistan: TygerPaw was in the box for me.

    I found mantis blade just where you showed on the screen. 🙂 Running on 1.04 PC so 99% it’s anything but patched out

  7. J

    Just tried it on 1.04 on XSX, they weren’t there the first time so I reloaded a save from about a minute before and they showed up! I can’t believe this worked lol. Make sure you go to a ripperdoc to put them on they didn’t show up in my available cyberware in the menu until I went to one

    I did not find mantis blades there, sadly.

    This quest triggered for me in the indicated location. If you manage to get the quest to trigger, you MUST loot the blades if you plan on finishing the quest. Once the quest is completed, all bodies and lootable containers will disappear, and be replaced with an NCPD crime scene. I found out the hard way, thinking I would leave them for a higher level. I did not figure out the cyberware weapons scale with level, until I no longer had a save point to go back to, screwing me out of free blades. Still hoping the container comes back at some point, but it looks like any special container/loot that is tied to a specific special encounter will disappear upon completion.

    Can confirm it too!
