Is this a type of barcode or some other kind of code?

I figure it I may as well post this here since half of this game is deciphering codes. Anyone have any idea what this might be? I can’t figure it out and I’ve tried several universal barcode apps that read barcodes, matrix codes, qr codes, and a bunch of other things I’ve never heard of. They can’t figure it out, either.

It’s a 6 x 43 matrix, if I counted correctly.
I don’t see any repeats, reading sideways.
So I’d assume that it’s 43 alphanumerics encoded on base-6, possibly a cypher.
Or something similar :slight_smile:

Edit:
Ah, there are some repeats, but it can still be a cypher for letters of an alphabet.

Edit 2:
Sorry, not base-6, of course, but binary.
It’s encoded on 6 digits of base-2, so 2^6=64.

Context might help.

It’s not braille, is it? Not checked yet myself (will later), but it could be 2 lines of 2 x 3 “dots”. I know it doesn’t directly fit with 42 lines, but it’s what it made me think of first when I saw it…

Not much context to give. It’s part of the extras in the physical editions of Cyberpunk 2077 in with the maps. The full page is this: https://i.imgur.com/srZkcj1.jpg If it’s meant to be deciphered, then it will almost certainly translate to some phrase in English, a URL, or some set of numbers like coordinates.

Definitely not braille.

I’m wondering if it’s a cut up QR code, minus the alignment squares of course. But I haven’t had any luck reconstructing anything usable from it.
