With enough money and if your body can handle it, you can look however you like and be whatever you like.
Cybernetic enhancements are an indispensable part of everyday life in Cyberpunk 2077.

Some enhancements are just fashion accessories, some are tools for everyday work, and some are medical cyberware.
But, the most advanced cyberware available is elevating human capabilities to unthinkable levels by today's standards.
In Cyberpunk 2077 you'll have a plethora of cybernetic enhancements to choose from. All kinds of implants, upgrades, prosthetics, prostheses, and other additions to your body.
You can use them to enhance your performance in various ways, to arm and protect yourself or to simply look cool.
In Cyberpunk 2077, there are three basic categories of cyberware in terms of gameplay: Active, Triggered, and Passive.
- Active - This type of cyberware players can use in a similar manner as weapons and other usable equipment, by taking an appropriate action in order to activate the cyberware, like launching rockets from your hands or bringing out a Mantis Blade.
- Triggered - This type of cyberware activates itself automatically when conditions for its activations are met.
- Passive - This type of cyberware starts working immediately after installation and it is constantly working in the background, by providing passive benefits or functions.
Just like other items in the game, cyberware can be common, unusual, rare, epic, and legendary.
Those of the highest rarity are very expensive and hard to find but offer unique and high-quality features and benefits.

There are 22 slots available in the player's character (V) body for installing cyberware.
Various cyberware goes into different parts of the body where it provides different functions and benefits.
Some cyberware can occupy more than one slot.
The most complex cybernetic and bioware enhancements installation are performed only in specialist branded clinics, but you can also visit some of the black market clinics, which has its benefits but also come with big risks.
Players can install cyberware by visiting Ripperdocs, who usually operate either illegally or in a grey area, and are offering various improvements depending on their reputation and suppliers. Some of them aren't quite reliable, so you must be careful!

- Immune system (2)
- The peripheral nervous system (2)
- Skin (3)
- Operating system (1)
- Skeletal system (2x Hands, 2x Arms, and 2x Legs)
