Update: Cyberpunk 2077 isn't the only game from a big developer to suffer a recent botched launch as the new GTA remasters haven't gone down well

The above Cyberpunk 2077 bug needs a little context, but once you figure it out, you'll know how weird it gets. That screenshot came from my gameplay, and my character has a full, well-coiffed head of hair, but it often disappears. Why? Because I decided to wear a balaclava. 

Yes, Cyberpunk 2077 is so broken that it shaves you bald if you deign to wear something on your head. But that's just the beginning, really. So, I went hunting online for the best Cyberpunk 2077 bugs. Here, I've collected everything from footage of a broken window that acts like a jetpack to the weird glitch that ruined the emotional impact of a major moment.

And as you peruse these glitches, you'll likely experience one of two sensations. If you haven't bought the game yet, I'm thinking you'll say "phew, I'm glad I didn't pre-order." But some folks, the kind who want to watch the world burn, will think "this looks funny, I should get this game." 

So if you're in the latter group, you can get it for $10 off right now, but I bet it will fall further before the bugs are patched, so you can revel in all the Cyberpunk 2077 bugs without feeling ripped off.

Spoiler alert: this Cyberpunk 2077 bug ruins an important scene

This is the bug that's most emblematic of Cyberpunk 2077's flaws. Right smack-dab in the middle of an emotional moment, something breaks and you're completely taken out of the scene.
