Cyberpunk 2077 Where the Bodies Hit the Floor Cyberpsycho Sighting: How To Neutralize the Threat

Cyberpunk 2077 Where The Bodies Hit The Floor Cyberpsycho Sighting is a gig you can complete in Watson, Northside area, where you’ll have to deal with Ellis Carter.

This Cyberpsycho Sighting takes place in the northwestern part of Watson, and Ellis Carter counts as one of the 17 Cyberpunk 2077 Cyberpshychos.

The only requirement for this gig is to complete The Rescue story mission.

Once you do that, if you travel to the location on my map below, Regina calls you regarding the Cyberpsycho you’ll need to neutralize during Where The Bodies Hit The Floor.

How To Start the Where The Bodies Hit The Floor Cyberpsycho Sighting in CP2077

Look for Ellis Carter south of Pershing St fast travel point, as you can see in the screenshot below.

When you arrive at this location, you’ll find a back alley, which, just so you know, is the area where you’ll fight Ellis Carter.

Start by investigating the dead bodies you can see on the ground, but focus on the blood left by Carter’s victims.

If you follow the trail, it will lead you to your target, which is behind a dumpster on the right side of the alley.

Before doing that, though, there is an important shard you’ll have to find and read; otherwise, you won’t be able to progress with this gig.

The said shard is by the container on the right side.

You can see it in my picture below, and behind the same container is Ellis Carter.

You can find the Archived Conversation Hoof And Sanders near some container

So first, pick the Archived Conversation: Hoof And Sanders shard in my screenshot and read it.

Now, it’s time to deal with the threat of the Where The Bodies Hit The Floor Cyberpsycho Sighting.

How To Neutralize The Ellis Carter Cyberpsycho in Where The Bodies Hit The Floor

Unlike Lely Hein, Ellis Carter doesn’t have a firearm, but he has a deadly machete.

The Cyberpsycho has the ability to teleport on small distances and land melee attacks.

When this happens, try to dodge.

Since he can’t hit you from a distance, if you rely on ranged weapons, try to stay as far as possible.

Ellis’s weakness is electricity, just like the previous target we have neutralized.

This means that although you’ll be able to deal a fair amount of damage through other status effects, electricity-based attacks are your best bet.

Dodging and staying mobile is the key to winning this fight.

Cyberpsycho Ellis Carter Loot in Where the Bodies Hit the Floor

Once defeated, Ellis Carter drops a lot of loot (gear, weapons, etc…), but these items are usually random.

What you get also depends on the difficulty you’re playing on. Here are some items this miniboss may drop:

  • Skill Shard: Breach Protocol (Progression Shard) – Epic
  • Machete (Long Blade) – Rare
  • M-10 AF Lexington (Power Pistol) – Rare
  • Ram Jolt (Long-lasting) – Uncommon
  • Archived Conversation: Brick And Ellis (Readable) – Common

One last thing to do after you loot Carter is to read the Archived Conversation: Brick And Ellis shard you collect from the body and reply to Regina’s text.

That’s everything you need to know about Ellis Carter and the CP2077 Cyberpsycho Sighting: Where The Bodies Hit The Floor Gig, so good luck completing it, and when you are done, look for Matt Liaw.

However, there are plenty more Cyberpsychos to neutralize in the Night City. Feel free to visit our Wiki Hub Page for additional help.
