The Chinook is an Iconic variant of the Tsunami Kyubi in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty and it is a powerful weapon that you can get for free via Amazon Prime Gaming's drops. We will go over how to get the weapon as a Prime Gaming subscriber. You can also get the weapon in-game without needing a Prime Gaming subscription in case you do not have a subscription. Here's how you can get the Chinook in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty.

What is the Chinook in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty

The Chinook is known as a gentle giant, but what about the Chinook Power Assault Rifle? Giant yes, gentle - not so much. This assault rifle comes with an Iconic mod that grants increased movement speed on kills and dismemberments as well as greater armor penetration. Damage increases the faster you move, and all bonuses remain active as long as you’re swapping between Barghest weapons.

This Barghest themed variant of the Kyubi has an iconic modifier that increases Movement Speed by 4% after successful kills and dismemberment for 6 seconds, stacking up to 5 times for a total of 20% Movement Speed. The higher the user's Movement Speed is, the more damage they will deal (up to 25%). Weapons in the BARGHEST family all receive a 25% bonus to Armor Penetration.

How to Get the Chinook in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty

Using your Prime Gaming subscription is the easiest way to get the Chinook, but it's only available for a limited time. If you're an Amazon Prime member, you can claim the "Chinook (Iconic Kyubi)" reward from the Prime Gaming website until 24th January 2024. Once you've claimed it, the weapon will be automatically added to your stash in Cyberpunk 2077.

The Chinook can also be found in Airdrops throughout Night City. Airdrops are marked on your map with a blue circle, and they can be opened by using the Tech perk "Cyberpunk Master." However, this is a much rarer way to get the Chinook, so you're better off claiming it through Prime Gaming if you can.

Should You Get The Chinook?

The Chinook is a great weapon for players who like to run and gun. It's also a good choice for players who want to build a Barghest weapon build that involves using a bunch of Barghest weapons to buff each other.
