While the corporations run the downtown and corporate zones of Night City, the Combat Zone is the domain of the booster gangs. These gangs are at constant war with each other for control of the zone. Most are heavily armed, with access to various levels of cybernetics. Many also “enhance” themselves through the use of illegal combat drugs. Some gangs form partnerships with corporations. They do the corporation’s dirty work in exchange for access to better weaponry and cybernetics. Such deals rarely end well, however, as the corporations have no problem using the gangs as sacrifice pawns.
