CD Projekt Red introduced the 1.52 Patch for Cyberpunk 2077 on Wednesday 23rd March 2022, and a new Ballistic Armour has been introduced as part of the new update.
The 1.52 patch was mainly introduced to address a ton of bug fixes into the game, but CDPR decided to add a new legendary piece of gear, namely the aforementioned Ballistic Armour.
Players will be able to find the new piece of gear for their version of V if they know exactly where they need to look in Night City.
Here’s everything you need to know about the new Ballistic Armour that has been introduced as part of Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.52.
Cyberpunk 2077 Ballistic Armour
Players will first need to head to the area indicated on the map below. You might recognise this as near to where the parade mission took place in the story. Once you’re here, head down to ground level and keep circling the block until you’re able to find an alley.
If you’re able to see the Tiger Claws logo as seen in the image below, then you know that you’re in the right place.
Look out for the garage as seen in the image below.
Head left from there and it will look like you’re going onto a balcony. You’ll then see a package on the ground and this contains the Laminate-Armor Media Ballistic Vest. You’ll also find a shard with it that gives more information.

The Ballistic Armour vest comes with two mod slots, one of which has a 17% explosion reduction in damage, which is a built-in legendary mod.
This addition of the new legendary mod is welcome, as some of the mods introduced during recent updates have been fairly low in quality in comparison to this new legendary mod.
Patch 1.5 and Beyond
The 1.5 Patch for the game did not include any new Legendary gear, mainly because that patch was more quality of life focused than anything else.
Hopefully, the upcoming expansion for the game will be introducing a ton of new clothing, armour and weaponry into the CDPR title.
