Talking to the PC Gamer portal, CD Projekt informs that it will be possible to finish the long-awaited Cyberpunk 2077 without killing any NPC. Actually, this was not always the case, but it was changed to the satisfaction that fans communicated in surveys issued last year.
It also does not seem that it will be possible to solve each problem with good words and good thoughts (as the cinematic trailer shown in E3 2019 makes clear), so we will have a resort to weapons eventually. The interesting thing that is that almost everything we add to our arsenal has a non-lethal configuration, both in weapons and in gadgets. We also have options like our enemies, suffocate them or forgive the lives of some bosses.
Of course, if you want to make a more or less peaceful tour of Cyberpunk 2077 there will be some weapons that you should avoid, like the rocket launcher. It does not matter how you look at it: if you shoot someone with a rocket, it will explode on impact. There are no half measures.
