Cyberpunk 2077: How to Get The Yasha Sniper Rifle?
There’s no doubt that Twitch Drops are a fantastic way for a game to pull in players and get them hyped. That’s what Cyberpunk 2077 is doing; the game is making Twitch Drops to promote the Phantom Liberty DLC release.
While most drop campaigns in the past have rewarded players just for watching, the campaign for Cyberpunk 2077 is unique as it rewards viewers for supporting the participating channels rather than just viewing them. Among the possible rewards, players can unlock a Yasha sniper. We’re going to help you find out how to unlock the Yasha rifle and if it’s even worth your time
How to Unlock the Yasha Sniper Rifle in Cyberpunk 2077?
The Yasha Sniper Rifle is only available for people who participate in the Cyberpunk 2077 Twitch Drop event, which starts at 1 PM CEST on 25th September and ends at 11:59 CEST on 21st October. Participating streamers will be involved in the event as the new expansion goes live.
In order to unlock Yasha Sniper Rifle, viewers have to gift two subs to any streamer in the Support a Streamer Event. There are multiple streamers participating in the event; you can check them out here.
After purchasing the subs, players will get a code that they must redeem at the Cyberpunk Redemption Page. After you’ve redeemed the code, you can find your new gun stashed in your vehicle or apartment.
Is The Yasha Sniper Rifle in Cyberpunk 2077 Actually Any Good?
Unfortunately, the answer is no. The Yasha Sniper Rifle is an iconic sniper, allowing you to one-shot anyone, but it requires a smartlink, and the range is not that good.
If you’re aiming for a Sniper build, there are better options, as Yasha Sniper Rifle requires you be up close to your targets. Other snipers can also outfire it and deal incredible damage with headshots. If you are an intelligence-focused character and smart weapon perks unlocked, Yasha Sniper can be a viable option for you.
How to Link Your Twitch Account?
In order to participate in the Drop campaign, gift subs, and receive your rewards, you need to link your GOG and Twitch accounts.
Link your GOG account on Cyberpunk Twitch Drops page. If you don’t have one, you need to create one. After you complete the sign-up process, you will be eligible to receive Yasha Sniper Rifle in Cyberpunk 2077.
After linking your GOG account, head to Twitch. You can now view your progress to all Cyberpunk 2077 drops. You can do this by clicking on your icon on the top right of the screen. Choose Drops and Rewards, and now you’ll be able to see your progress for each new drop.
Xbox and PlayStation players can also link their platform accounts to GOG and Twitch to be eligible for free drops.
