Author: Yamashi and uploaded by awpsoleet

During its initial days, Cyberpunk 2077 was considerably unplayable for many PC players, especially for those who aren’t using a high-end rig. This mod in particular addresses one of the most important issues the game suffers from, frame rates. Using this mod grants a noticeable FPS boost as seen in the picture above.

Given how many patches CD Projekt Red has released for the game, you may end up not needing this mod. Nevertheless, it doesn’t hurt to have this mod in case you want to have a better experience.

Better Minimap

Author: WillyJL

The minimap mod is a handy tool whose importance comes to action as soon as it’s booted. This newly-made minimap mod replaces the default one with a few useful options such as:

  • Zoom out options
  • Transparent minimap
  • Remove borders
  • Compass only mode
  • and more.

Skip Intro Videos

Author: DJ Kovrik

Nothing much to say about this mod other than the fact that it does exactly what it says in the title. If you’re tired of seeing the same intro video every time you boot the game, this mod will save you.

High-Quality Shortcut Icon

Author: Kostas96b

Upon installing Cyberpunk 2077, you will quickly notice the noticeably blurry game icon. For some, it may not be a big deal. But those who enjoy having everything on their desktop at high quality should check this mod. Not only can you make your icon less blurry, but you can also change it altogether the way you desire.

Appearance Change Unlocker

Author: PotatoOfDoom

It goes without saying that Cyberpunk 2077’s ability to customize your character is worthy of praise. The array of options the game provides is fascinating, and it has certainly pleased RPG enthusiasts today. Prior to this mod, patch 1.5 introduced the ability to customize V’s appearance via the mirror in his apartment. This mod, however, expands upon the former by introducing the ability to customize V’s hair, body and even his voice, opening the door for a more excellent customization experience.

Alternate Crowd Behavior and Other Tweaks

Another handy mod to improve your experience with Cyberpunk 2077. With this mod, players can enhance their surroundings, focusing strongly on the NPC system and their AI behaviour to make the world feel alive. This mod controls the number of pedestrians on the streets, as well as, the parked cars. However, that comes at the cost of performance. The mod has a slew of other tweaks to offer, which you should check via the official download link.

Immersive First Person

Author: Bonaniki

Cyberpunk 2077 is undeniably one of the best immersive FPS games of the era — but what if you were told that you can make the experience slightly better? This mod introduces improvements to the overall body and clothes look, and an additional FreeLook feature which allows the player to rotate the camera without any body movement.

Better Vehicle Handling

Author: RB

Driving in Cyberpunk 2077 is as if you stepped your leg on a soap, inevitably sliding and crashing into someone’s else car only to end up apologizing. With this mod, you can now enhance the steering for all your cars so that they feel tight to handle and more responsive when driving through Night City.

Third-Person View

Author: Jelle Bakker

One of the best features every role-playing game offers is the ability to switch back and forth between first-person and third-person views. Titles such as Skyrim or Fallout 4 grant players that choice, but quite sadly, that isn’t an available option in Cyberpunk 2077. With this work-in-progress, players can play Cyberpunk 2077 in third-person view with the option to choose from 4 different camera angles while in-game. Bear in mind that some bugs may arise if you install this mod such as missing heads or arms.

Metro System

Author: KeanuWheeze

One of the easily overlooked essential parts of Cyberpunk 2077 is its Metro System. With this mod, you can finally use the Metro System to travel through the beautifully made Night City. With 19 explorable stations spread across, and the ability to pick between first-person and third-person mode while inside, you can now appreciate the world of Cyberpunk 2077.

Better Loot Markers

Author: Rodikh

Mostly, it’s hard to tell what loot the player will receive. This mod makes it easy to distinguish items by adding colourful icons on dead bodies. Like that, you can tell what type of items you will obtain from containers or fallen enemies.

Appearance Mods

Virtual Atelier Mod

Author: Pacings

This is essentially a mod for modders that gives them the ability to include virtual stores in-game for their clothes. One of the benefits of this mod is that it allows players to also preview items before purchasing them.

Blade Runner Mod for Cyberpunk 2077

E3 2018 Hairstyle for Female V
