There are many different iconic weapons to find in and around Night City, and this part of IGN’s Cyberpunk 2077 guide will show you where to find Panam’s Overwatch Sniper Rifle. This weapon is a rare iconic Power Sniper Rifle that’s given to you by Panam after completing the Riders on the Storm side job.

How to Get Panam’s Overwatch Sniper Rifle

Following the Life During Wartime mission, you’ll get a call from Panam saying she needs your help. Head to the Aldecaldo’s camp in the Badlands to meet up with her.

She’ll explain that Saul has been taken by Wraiths, so follow her to learn more about the plan. Mitch will join the two of you and give you a shard so you can survey the camp before you head out.

Then, hop in the van with Panam and start making your way over to the camp. She’ll point out that a storm is headed your way as well, so time is of the essence. Once you get there, take out the enemies however you’d like and head into the main building’s security room.

Once you’ve reached the security room, check the monitor in the middle of the room. Head over to the “Local Network” tab and down to “Remote Takeover.” This will bring you to the security feed and show you exactly where Saul is located.

Then, start making your way down to him (it’ll be marked on your screen.) Once you’ve found Saul, head back upstairs to Panam. She’ll pull the van around to the front of the building for you.


The storm’s really picking up now, and you’ll have some guys on your tail as you’re leaving. Take them out, and once you reach the next building, head inside to escape the storm. You’ll have to repair the breaker in the back room to get the power on and fix the fusebox outside to get the heat working, then head back inside.

The next morning, talk with Panam again outside. Walk with her to the motorcycles and she’ll give you the Overwatch Sniper Rifle as a thank you for helping her.

Both this weapon and the Widow Maker, which is also found while with Panam, are references to Overwatch’s Widowmaker as well! It’s one of many cool little Easter eggs you can find hidden throughout Cyberpunk 2077. For more information, and details on other references, head to the Easter Eggs and References page.
