Cyberpunk 2077 is here, and as you've probably heard it's a bit of a bug-riddled mess. But let's face it—even if the game was flawless, modders gonna mod. That's just what they do.
Cyberpunk 2077 mods have begun appearing already to address bugs and glitches on PC, and fix a few oversights like limited keybindings and the lack of character customization tools once you've started playing. (There are also Cyberpunk 2077 cheats, if you're interested in really going wild in Night City).
There aren't any particularly massive mods out yet, since Cyberpunk 2077 hasn't been out all that long, but in the meantime here are a few mods that can help tweak your experience on PC.
The best Cyberpunk 2077 mods (so far)
Important! Keep in mind that mods aren't supported by CD Projekt, that we don't know what modding Cyberpunk 2077 might do to your games files and saved games, and that Cyberpunk 2077 is bound to be updated repeatedly to fix bugs, which might play havoc with your modded game. Mod Cyberpunk 2077 at your own risk!
I would also highly recommend reading the comments that users of the mods have posted on each mod's page. You can get an idea of how reliable each mod is and what potential issues you can expect before installing it. And you'll probably want to install Cyberengine Tweaks, as a number of the mods below are reliant upon it to work.
PC gamers love having options, and they love it when those options have even more options. There's already an FOV slider in Cyberpunk 2077, but this mod moves the goalposts a bit, with a new minimum FOV of 30 and a new maximum FOV of 150.
Cyberpunk 2077 does have key remapping, except for a few keys it oddly chose not to give players control over. Weird. This mod lets you change the interact key from the default F, lets you bind a key for walking so V doesn't run around like a goof all the time, and makes other rebinding options available.
It's still bizarre that in a game about changing everything about yourself, you can't change anything about yourself after you've completed character creation, not even your nail polish color. This mod adds what should already be in the game, the option to change your character's looks once you've started playing.
Driving is a bit... sluggish, I guess. Cars and bikes just don't feel all that responsive when you're driving through Night City, and at the same time they'll slide for years when you're taking a tight corner at high speeds. This mod makes some tweaks to the driving so it'll feel a bit more satisfying when you're behind the wheel.
Has this happened to you? You're driving through Night City, following the dotted line on your minimap, and it suddenly indicates a sharp right turn. But before you can make that turn yourself you go sailing off a bridge and into the river? That's because the minimap is zoomed in way too close (and the brakes on all the vehicles are complete trash) and you can't adjust it. This mod fixes that, giving you several choices of zoom level. No more missing those sharp turns, choomba.
This modder made the useful same utility for The Witcher 3. It backs up your saved games, which is already a great idea, but it also organizes your saves between different user profiles, so you'll quickly be able to tell which save belongs to which user. It should work both for Steam and GoG versions of Cyberpunk 2077.
Naturally, this isn't how Cyberpunk 2077 is meant to be played, and even if it was perfectly you'd still lose much of the impact of looking through V's eyes. Also, it doesn't work perfectly: using this third person camera mod is mostly just straight up goofy as V's legs wobble and swivel around. But it's still fun to play around with, at least. You might want to avoid swimming with it, though.
