Encumbrance

 

In most cases, encumbrance isn't a big problem for a Cyberpunk character - he's going to keep the majority of his gear in his apartment or his car. A Cyberpunk character can carry around as much in kilograms as the number of points invested in his Body Type stat, multiplied by 10. He can deadlift 40 times his Body Type stat.

Example: I have spent 6 points to get an Average Body Type. I con carry up to 60 kilograms; roughly 132 Ibs. I can deadlift 240 kg - about 528 Ibs.

Rather than list exact weights of everything you could possibly want to carry, we have arranged a simpler system of classification. The following weight groups are more useful to the Referee who must make a general determination of how much a player can carry.
