How to holster your weapon in Cyberpunk 2077

Having a weapon drawn in Cyberpunk 2077 can make characters around you slightly nervous. There’s no real downside to this, except you might get some obscenities thrown your way now and again. I mostly put weapons away to free up the screen a bit, making it easier to see loot and conversation options.
