Looking for the best Cyberpunk 2077 mods? You're not alone. Nearly two years after its contentious and troublesome launch, players are suddenly flocking back to Cyberpunk 2077 in record numbers (opens in new tab), and sales (opens in new tab) of CD Projekt's first-person RPG are on the rise, too. There are some good reasons for that. 

First, Cyberpunk 2077 has undergone some serious changes and improvements over the past 18 months, fixing lots of bugs and adding long-requested features like transmog (opens in new tab) to the RPG. Providing another big boost is Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, the Netflix anime series that's getting people back in the mood to either revisit Night City (opens in new tab) or to try the game for the very first time.

Whether you're a first time player or a veteran, you'll be interested to know there are lots of great mods to download and install, featuring everything from flying cars to improved motorcycles, and even mods inspired by the anime series that you can bring to life in your own game. Below, you'll find our picks for the best mods for Cyberpunk 2077.

Let There Be Flight

We all know the future promised us flying cars, and there actually are some airborne vehicles in a few scenes in Cyberpunk 2077. But when you're playing the game itself, the only cars you can pilot remain firmly on the ground. It doesn't seem fair!

Luckily, modder jackhumbert had the same thought. Finally, you can take your ride to the skies with the Let There Be Flight mod. The mod includes several different control schemes, plus custom sounds and visual effects. At last, Night City really does feel like the future.

Enhanced Police

CD Projekt has said it's planning a big police overhaul (opens in new tab) in the future, to finally make the cops a bit more realistic when they show up to fight crime. Currently, it's a bit unsatisfying: they just teleport to your location. That feels like cheating.

The Enhanced Police mod (opens in new tab) by mandruis7 makes the arrival of cops more reasonable. With a one-star warrant level, cops will arrive on foot, but at higher levels they'll show up on bikes and in police cars and actually pursue you. That feels much more appropriate.

Bike Overhaul

There are some sweet motorcycles in Cyberpunk 2077, but they've never really felt all that great to drive. The Bike Overhaul mod (opens in new tab) by Suprt132 addresses a lot of the issues with bikes, making them faster and more satisfying to operate. Now when you're speeding around the city, V will lean with the bike when making turns and the top speed of each bike has greatly increased.

Drone Companions

Cyberpunk 2077 is a singleplayer game, but that doesn't mean you need to take on the world all by yourself. If you want to feel the possibilities of the future, the Drone Companions mod (opens in new tab) by modder Scissors123454321 lets you craft and customize some robotic buddies. And they're not just around to be your pals, they'll fight alongside you.

The mod adds a new operating system called Techdeck, which lets you build androids, drones, and mechs. Each can be upgraded and customized, and will help you take down any enemies you target. The gangs of Night City won't know what hit 'em.

Arasaka Cyberarms

There's no question that your cyberarms are cool, but are they cool enough? The Arasaka Cyberarms mod (opens in new tab) by Aanderz gives you a whole bunch of replacement skins for your arms, an entire library for you to choose from. Your arms can look like Iron Man, you can having glowing Mantis blades of several colors, and choose from lots of different decals. The world of Cyberpunk is all about style, so don't settle for arms that look like you bought them off the shelf. Customize them!

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners mods

Like I said earlier, the Cyberpunk: Edgerunners anime series on Netflix has done a lot to bring old and new players back to Night City. The modding scene is positively bursting with mods based on the anime, and everything from weapons to haircuts to facial presets are being modded into Cyberpunk 2077. There's even a modded radio station that adds music from the show into the game. Check out our article on all the different Edgerunners mods (opens in new tab) already out there, keeping in mind more being added every day.

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
