'Cyberpunk 2077' Has Teleporting Cops, Which Seems A Little Unfair

I didn't know that when you joined the police force, you get to learn to teleport. Seems a little OP if you ask me, I would think it's fairer for the cops to chase criminals on foot - give them a little head start, you know? Oh wait, Cyberpunk 2077 isn't a completely accurate representation of real police and the teleportation thing is weird? Ah cool, cool, cool, good to know, don't mind me I'm just burning my Night City police force application now.
If you've been playing Cyberpunk 2077 then you might notice illegal actions get the police in the game to hunt you down - GTA style. The difference with CD Projekt Red's RPG, however, is that the police seem to randomly spawn in, appearing out of thin air to catch you. It's not the worst glitch or problem with the game by far - we've seen a lot worse. But it's rather amusing to see how strange it is that the game works in this way.
One user on Reddit decided to push this mechanism to the limits, finding their way onto a roof of a building up above a busy district. GermanCommentGamer makes sure to show you the roof is completely clear of other life before open firing on pedestrians far down below. Once he has downed a civilian, a pop-up appears telling the player that the NCPD are about the place a bounty on them, but as they turn, the police are already on the roof with the assailant.
Suddenly the roof is a warzone. At least five officers are on the roof with the player, trying to take them down. They just appear like that - almost like the game doesn't really account for where the player is when they're doing illegal stuff.
CDPR's new trelease has been all that games media has been talking about the last week, and GAMINGbible is no different. If you're interested in what we thought of the game, we have a console Cyberpunk 2077 review ready for your enjoyment.
