One of the initial cameo appearances you’ll come across in Cyberpunk 2077 is none other than the popular streamer and YouTuber, Jesse Cox. Jesse’s in-game character can be located in the Little China area of Night City, situated within the Watson district.

This initial interaction serves as the commencement of a side mission aptly named “Burning Desire.”

CohhCarnage, a prominent Twitch streamer, had the privilege of making an appearance in Cyberpunk 2077. Known for his devout dedication to playing RPGs, it’s fitting that he takes on the role of a spiritual figure within the game. Cohh assumes the character of “Garry the Prophet,” a non-playable character (NPC) who can be encountered in an alleyway located just outside Misty’s Esoterica and Chakra Harmonization shop, where Viktor operates his clinic. Here, players have the opportunity to engage with Cohh’s character, listen to his sermons, contribute funds to support his mission, and do a side quest for him called “Prophet’s Song.”
