Cyberpunk 2077 Talk to Viktor – How to Fix The Ripperdoc Bug?

To fix The Ripperdoc bug in the Cyberpunk 2077 Talk to Viktor quest, you have to load up the autosave from just before Victor operates on you, after which the Cyberpunk 2077 Talk to Viktor glitch can occur. That seems to fix things fairly consistently. Yes, you can potentially lose some progress, but it’s a reliable method. Another alternative that you can take when you get the “Talk to Victor” prompt is to save the game right then and there, and then load that save. Talk to Viktor should be gone, and the proper quest prompt should appear.

The Cyberpunk 2077 The Ripperdoc glitch when you talk to Victor is a fairly serious problem, and by that, I mean game-breaking. It doesn’t let you proceed with the rest of the missions; you’re forever stuck in the limbo of trying to talk to Victor, even though he doesn’t have much more to say to you. In addition to that, the CP2077 Talk to Viktor glitch happens in a moment that is truly unfortunate. You don’t have the money to pay Victor, but the game notifies you of side quests around that point, and you can easily assume that you have to do a bunch of side quests first. That’s not the case at all; you’re in the hands of the Viktor glitch, and you have to fix it.

And, there you go, that’s how you fix the Cyberpunk 2077 Talk to Viktor bug during The Ripperdoc quest. At least, that’s what we know about it. If you have any solution of your own, let us know in the comments below. You can also check out some of our other guides, like Cyberpunk 2077 Trees Glitch Fix and Cyberpunk 2077 Third Person.

    I got this bug and thought I was going to have to start over. Luckily I was able to fix it by letting an enemy kill me and loading last checkpoint. Playing on PS5.

      GentleDrew’s solution worked for me.. Initially Jackie wasn’t in Misty’s chair, after getting killed my story progressed as normal.

      Just did this and can confirm that it does work. It will progress the quest into a quest called “The Ride”.

      so happy i read this because i went ahead and did side quests thinking this wasn’t a glitch and didn’t want to lose progress on those. thanks!!!

    4. P

      True it did worked for me as well. Thank you very much!

    wanted to confirm Gentledrew’s fix, you just have to get a npc to kill you, then load from last checkpoint does infact fix the glitch. No need to backup and load a old save like the guide says.

    Saving before you sit in chair then reloaded didn’t work for me. Got killed by cops before reaching ripper doc and it didn’t help.
    It is something dev needs to fix. I will try going out and making money but you can’t leave the prolog area. It just send you back.

    Got the glitch too on xbox series x. At least in my case, it got fixed by just manually saving the game, closing the software and loading the save again. Hopefully, there are no other f****g glitches in that game. Already got annoyed by that watch dogs legion save game issue which caused a loss of several hours of progress. Developers should really do their work and not letting us pay for semi finished products. This is what next gen gaming has become…and it makes me sad.

    Also works to just do a manual save and restore. No progress lost.

    I’m so grateful you posted this, because I honestly thought I was going crazy. Thankfully I didn’t get invested in doing side quests. Experience with new releases told me that this was likely a huge problem in need of a bugfix.

  7. P

    So I ended up paying the 21k to Viktor before the operation, but then after I still owe him the 21k.. If that’s the kase.. Why have an option to pay Viktor ahead of time? Glitch? Maybe?

  8. D

    I thought I needed to earn money, did a couple of side missions before reading this. Just saved where I was exited and closed game and reloaded it worked for me on PS5.

    1. E

      I’m not understanding where to save and reload to fix this glitch. Can someone help

  9. B

    I was able to fix it by simply saving and reloading my save.

  10. I

    Manual Save – Than instant reload… Worked perfect moved me along to The Ride

    Thx All this helps a lot of frustration!

  11. R

    I knew this had to be a bug. Thanks for the quick solution.

  12. Z

    I did every side quest in Watson so I don’t have a save before I talked to him, I’m completely stuck and can’t progress without getting the implants (which I can’t get because he is stuck behind a gate)
