The Best Mods for Cyberpunk 2077

Mods can give games a second life. That's why we've gathered the best mods for Cyberpunk 2077 in this text and we'll constantly update it with new ones.

Improvements and revamps

Time for a handful of mods that improve gameplay and add new features to Cyberpunk 2077. Admittedly, you won't find any new vehicles, guns or quests, but perhaps you'll like your new fully functional cybernetic blades. Moreover, the list below contains some simple, yet fun modifications - including an improved minimap, better car and motorcycle handling, and the ability to disable mission tracking.

Better Minimap - no more turning back

Ladies and gentlemen, here is a rescue from the constant need to turn back caused by the minimap being too zoomed in - Better Minimap. This mod is simply a bigger minimap that zooms out when driving a vehicle (although the final result is up to you because the mod has several versions) - seems simple, but we still remember how many times we've missed the quest marker while driving. One of the most useful mods for Cyberpunk 2077.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

The modification requires CP77Tools to be installed.

  1. Download Better Minimap.
  2. Extract the downloaded archive and run the installer found there.
  3. Start by configuring the new minimap. During the installation process, you will need to point to the path of the CP77Tools tool folder you installed earlier and the location of the game's main folder.

INSTANT CRAFTING

People who spend a lot of time crafting items should check out Instant Crafting, a mod that allows you to adjust the crafting time.

Better Vehicle Handling - different vehicle handling

Where driving is concerned, one should check out Better Vehicle Handling modification. A few changes presented in the mod should make trips around Night City much more enjoyable. Of course, vehicle handling is a subjective issue, so you need to decide for yourself whether to use the mod.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Download Better Vehicle Handling.
  2. Extract the downloaded archive and place its contents in the root folder of Cyberpunk 2077.

CAR PERSONALIZATION

Cyberpunk 2077 lacks any ability to customize or tune vehicles. Fortunately, there is Change Your Favorite Cars, but for now, it's a simple model replacer.

Better Controls Menu - walk instead of run

Dear CD Project, why don't you allow players to take a leisurely stroll and relax and enjoy Night City? We probably won't get the answer, but the problem of constant running can be easily solved by installing the Better Controls Menu mod. In addition to slow walking, you will also find the ability to change the action button or the option to trigger a dodge with a single press of a key.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Download Better Controls Menu.
  2. Extract the downloaded archive and place its contents in the r6\config folder located in the root directory of Cyberpunk 2077.

MORE SETTINGS

Do you find the game settings menu not satisfactory? Then install the Unlock Global Illumination Settings mod as soon as possible.

Arasaka Cyberarms - cybernetic blades

There's no denying that Cyberpunk 2077 doesn't offer many implants that change V's appearance or heavily influence the gameplay. Some NPCs have cybernetic blades, but they are not available to you. You can change that simply by installing the Arasaka Cyberarms mod, which gives you the ability to have the blades seen in the image above.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Download theArasaka Cyberarms mod.
  2. Extract the downloaded archive and place its contents in the archive\pc\patch folder located in the main Cyberpunk 2077 directory.

CYBERNETIC BODY

Cybernetic blades have not sated your appetite? With The CyberBody Shop modification, you can also change other parts of V's body.

Alternate Crowd Behavior - slightly smarter crowds

Well, the world full of characters living their own lives that was announced before the premiere didn't quite live up to expectations. Unless you mean NPCs walking in circles and not being able to get past the simplest obstacle. In any case, theAlternate Crowd Behavior modification improves the behavior of pedestrians. The author removed the immersion-breaking teleportation of the passersby and made movement on the sidewalks more realistic.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Download the Alternate Crowd Behavior modifcation.
  2. Unpack the archive.
  3. Move one chosen .ini file of your choice to the engine\config\platform\pc directory located in the root folder of Cyberpunk 2077.

HACKING PASSERSBYS

Pedestrians again - many players are annoyed by the lack of ability to hack neutral characters. However, all you need to do is install the Hack Everyone mod - and the cyberdecks of the poor residents of Night City are at your disposal.

Untrack Quests - disable task tracking

Another extremely simple mod that adds an option that should exist in the base version of Cyberpunk 2077. The Untrack Quests modification allows you to disable the tracking of the currently active task. We found it very annoying to have to track the mission and have suggested route displayed when we were just exploring Night City without a specific destination.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

The modification requires the Cyber Engine Tweaks tool to be installed.

  1. Download the Untrack Quests mod.
  2. Extract the downloaded archive and place its contents in the game's main folder.

JUDY ROMANCE

Male V's had surely been disappointed with the lack of the ability to romance Judy. Don't worry, you can change that - the Romanceable Judy for male V mod unlocks the Judy Alvarez romance for males.

CITY H4CK - samurai, you have a city to hack

Hacking in Cyberpunk 2077 is another element of the game that doesn't live up to its full potential. This is what the author of the CITY H4CK mod decided to improve. What new options are there? Opening doors remotely, controlling devices or traffic signals, and even hacking vehicles. What's more, the modification allows you to remove the police, which is some solution given the unsatisfactory crime system.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

The modification requires the Cyber Engine Tweaks tool to be installed.

  1. Download the CITY H4CK mod.
  2. Extract the downloaded archive and place its contents in the game's main folder.
