What is Cyberware?

As well as standard items that can be equipped, V can also upgrade his/her body through Cyberware augmentations.


  • Active – Must be executed by the player like weapons.
  • Triggered – Activated when a condition is met.
  • Passive – Runs automatically once installed on the body.


Cyberware uses the same quality types as items which are as follow:

  • Ordinary
  • Unusual
  • Rare
  • Epic
  • Legendary
  • Iconic


Each piece of Cyberware takes a minimum of one slot. Some of these items may take more than one slot. Below you can see the final interface for Cyberware in the game.

The table below shows known Cyberware slots and their number per position on V’s body as shown in the screenhots above.
