Cyberpunk modders did something unique, adding cyber psychosis to the game itself. This article will show how it works, how to stop it, how to trigger the actual cyber psychosis, and how the mod generally works.
Once you install the mod, you will see a new scale in your cyberware tab called humanity. This is a Humanity index from the tabletop RPG of Cyberpunk 2020 and Cyberpunk Red, where cyber psychosis plays a considerable role. So, you can see that humanity has a degree between 0 and 180. So each time you add a cybernetic enhancement, there is a corresponding loss of humanity. Besides, you will lose humanity for each committed murder after using Berserk or Sandevistan. Once the bar reaches critical levels, you’ll start noticing all kinds of strange malfunctions and glitches, ranging from affecting your size up to hindering your stats.
Low humanity causes a few stat penalties and can trigger cyber psychosis. So basically, once this value drops to zero, and your humanity goes down, you’re going to go complete cyber psycho.
With this mod, you need to be extra careful about what you do, which cyberware you include in your body, and how you use it during the gameplay. In any case, this mod is lore-friendly to the Cyberpunk universe. If you want something to be more difficult or if you want to make the game a bit easier, you can customize your mod setting in the Edgerunner tab.
This is one of the most fun mods you can find, mainly because it plays such a vital role as you play throughout the game. And if you just started a new game, you will have to remember how many times you used Sandevistan or anything like, for example, the Berserker or how many people you killed throughout the day.
The important thing is to keep a close lookout so that you always have a neuro blocker ready at your disposal. You will need these neuro blockers to control cyber psychosis. There are two ways to get them.
You can buy a neuro blocker at Ripperdoc, but, at the same time, there is a neuro blocker recipe that you can buy in pharmacy stores. After you have the primary crafting component, you need to head to the crafting tab and make a neuro blocker. After that, make sure to equip them so that you can use those pills later. Your humanity will stay at zero point, but your character will stop the actual cyber psychosis, so you can go back and rest and restore your humanity index.
Meanwhile, you can purchase neuro blockers at the few Ripperdoc Locations:
- Victors Clinic
Inside the trade tab, you can buy one neuro blocker for the price of 6.000, and it’s going to keep you well alive for the next 45 minutes.
An Explanation of Cyberpsychosis in Cyberpunk
Essentially characters forget what it’s like to be a human, but there’s more to that.
First, there is the age-old problem of the human body rejecting any replacement. Mostly, doctors get around this issue in the cyberpunk world. But the more cyberware you add to yourself, the more you are psyche, and the more your brain starts to reject what’s happening to you. So the big part of cyber psychosis is the body dysmorphia that comes with having your body parts replaced. Another huge factor for cyber psychosis is any previous mental illnesses. Cyberpsychosis often triggers by PTSD, which is why a lot of soldiers go Cyberpshyco because they have post-traumatic stress disorder, which makes everything worse. The main symptoms of cyber psychosis are:
- Extreme violence
The patient tends to have extreme explosive, violent outbursts with a lack of empathy. They don’t care about the damage they cause.
The player will fall into these visions and hallucinations of things that are not happening.
- Temporarily lose the ability to tell the difference between right and wrong
Players lose complete control over their morality, the internal brain function that tells them what is right and wrong.
So feel free to install this Cyberpunk 2077 mod and fully experience cyber psychosis on your own.
