- Elon Musk’s audacious demand for a cameo in Cyberpunk 2077, armed with a 200-year-old gun, is detailed in Walter Isaacson’s new biography.

- The biography is a mosaic of Musk s achievements, eccentricities, and unpredictable endeavors.
In the recently released biography of Elon Musk by Walter Isaacson, readers are taken on an exciting adventure that explains Musk’s demand for a cameo in Cyberpunk 2077.
It’s odd that there was no formal request or official route used to make this demand. Instead, it materialized when Musk unexpectedly walked into a recording studio where Grimes—the mother of three of his children and his ex-partner—was recording voice lines for the game. Alongside Musk? A gun that was 200 years old.
Tension inevitably arose with Musk’s sudden entry brandishing the antique rifle, as Grimes remembered. She said, “The guys in the studio were sweating a lot.”
Clad with trademark Musk arrogance, he announced himself to be “armed but not dangerous.” The firearm appears to have been the imitation flintlock handgun that Musk has a history of keeping by his bedside. Readers find that these spectacular incidents are typical of Musk’s unorthodox and daring outlook on life and business.
Grimes provides the voice of bioengineered pop singer Lizzy Wizzy in Cyberpunk 2077. An unexpected surprise occurs when players that stick to a specific plot line become involved in a mission where Lizzy Wizzy hires them to spy on her lover. A mystery surrounding her boyfriend’s motivations emerges, involving altered personalities and computerized duplicates. This storyline ends with Wizzy making a shocking revelation and a momentous choice.
The widely held belief is that Musk’s cameo is symbolized by a modest figure who appears early in the early stages of the Corpo lifepath. It’s not a perfect match, but it’s a very near similarity. In Cyberpunk 2077, you’ll come across a character in a business restroom that looks a lot like Elon Musk. This inconspicuous-looking creature might be the result of Musk’s armed studio visit.
Both the game and Musk’s cameo have a striking resemblance to his real-life pursuits. Characters in Cyberpunk 2077 have the option to obtain cybernetic implants, which give them the ability to boost physical prowess, hack computers, and even see through solid walls. Neuralink, Musk’s startup, appears to be a less advanced version of these futuristic gadgets.
The business has been actively working on brain-computer interfaces for years, and Pong games played by monkeys have shown how practical the technology may be.
The biography by Isaacson provides a detailed account of Musk’s fascination for science fiction. Tesla Cybertruck inventor Elon Musk took influence from Cyberpunk 2077, Blade Runner, and even Halo when he was designing the vehicle. He is presented as someone who is working to create futuristic ideas rather than just being influenced by them.
Despite all of Musk’s ground-breaking endeavors and bold goals, there are times when his judgment is called into doubt. The biography clarifies additional oddities, such as Musk revealing personal images without permission and trying to wrestle a sumo champion, in addition to the game’s cameo.
It’s a brilliantly bizarre balancing act. Using his riches and connections to spearhead technical advancements or using them to make a brief appearance in video games, Elon Musk continues to be a significant and volatile force in the modern world, for better or ill.
In relation to Cyberpunk 2077, Phantom Liberty, the game’s sole paid expansion, will launch on September 26. However, on September 21, the game’s biggest update will be given away for free.
