Cyberpunk 2077 is full of customizations and cyberwares that let you enhance your body to a whole new level, giving you massive strength, the ability to use projectile weapons, and hack electronic devices from a distance. While you traverse the open world of Night City as your playground, you have to fight enemies, strong bosses, and even people with cyberpsychosis, which develops when the character loses empathy, has impulsive outbursts, or causes extreme violence.
We can also see this in the anime series Cyberpunk Edgerunners on Netflix. Although we don’t get to explore the cyberpsychosis concept in the main game, you can do it using the mod Wannabe Edgerunner, which lets you explore the lore behind this characteristic. A humanity system comes with the mod. When you add more cyberware to your body, commit murders or use special attacks, your humanity stat will keep dropping, and you will develop the chances of reaching the cyberpsychosis stage. Transforming grants you a tremendous speed, agility, and strength
boost. The mod was created by Djkovrik, as spotted by amesRadar.
There are a few humanity thresholds that will affect the character. At first, there will be Glitches that will cause light visual distortion and add critical damage debuff. Sleeping in this stage will bring humanity level to “normal”.
Then there is the pre-psychosis stage which causes visual glitches, along with critical chance debuff, with some probability of turning into cyberpsychosis.
Then finally, the stage of cyberpsychosis creates the heaviest visual glitches, but it buffs movement speed, armor value, and health regeneration. Police will also spawn in the area if you commit crimes and kill people.
The show’s recent release on Netflix has skyrocketed the player count of Cyberpunk 2077, as the developers confirmed that more than 1 million players have recently been active in the game. In addition, the show has also foreshadowed this release of the Wannabe Edgerunner mod, which lets the players explore the cyberpsychosis which had a direct correlation with the Netflix series.
