Danger lurks around every corner in Night City, and if you're not careful, you could find yourself on the wrong side of an enemy's barrel. Or a whole gang. At these times, your best bet is to avoid going buckling. Instead, you should use stealth and the technical environment to your advantage.

How to tag enemies

Marking enemies in Cyberpunk 2077 will depend on your control setup. For PC, hold the Tab key to use your scanner, then point your cursor at an enemy and press your mouse scroll wheel. For PS4, hold L1, aim at an enemy and press the right analog stick, R3. For Xbox, hold LB and press the right analog stick, RS.

Make sure you are well hidden behind a wall or barrier when tagging enemies in Cyberpunk 2077. If an enemy's eye gauge fills up, it means they have a vision of you. If their gauge fills up completely, they'll know where you are and alert all of their friends, forcing you into battle.

However, the marking mechanic will allow you to see the outlines of any enemy, even if you're hidden behind a wall. This is especially useful for helping you plan your next move well in advance, or even use hacking skills without getting caught.

This is a fundamental stealth mechanic in Cyberpunk 2077 that you should learn early in the game, as you always need to be aware of the enemy's layout. In all situations where you can't be aggressive, marking off the area first by marking enemies will help you succeed in situations.
