How to beat Shoot to Thrill in Cyberpunk 2077

Shoot to kill in Shoot to Thrill.

When Cyberpunk 2077's V isn't running earth shattering heists, there are plenty of gigs and side jobs to keep their attention. Money makes the world go round, and V is nothing if not a hustler. One such job is Shoot to Thrill, a marksmanship contest at Wilson's shooting range. Wanna prove your V is Night City's ultimate sharpshooter? Let us help you hit the mark.

During Act 2, you'll get a call from your old buddy Wilson (you may remember him from Act 1 mission The Gun), which will start the Shoot to Thrill side mission. Head over to 2nd Amendment gun store to check out the shooting range. 

The objective of Shoot to Thrill is to rack up as high a score out of 100 as possible within the time limit. If you score below 40, you're going to fail, but don't worry, there's a simple trick to this mission. Your shooting is judged based on how many times you hit targets, rather than how many targets you hit in general. This means it is imperative that you bring a gun with a sizeable clip if you want to win. We recommend any of the tech revolvers since they have 20 bullets per clip. The Dying Night and Lizzie gun are both great options as well. Shoot each target multiple times before they retract so you can rack up points as efficiently as possible.

Your reward for this mission is, perhaps a little lackluster for all the effort. Rudy gives you a special pistol, but its damage stat is nothing to write home about. It does have full customization slots though, so it may be a solid option with a few upgrades.
