One of my favorite components of Cyberpunk 2077 is the opening part with Jackie Welles. His companionship all the time made missions really feel extra participating, and his bromance with my male V helped me purchase into the ‘Street Kids versus the World’ narrative I used to be taking part in out in Chapter 1 – a real choom. You do meet many fascinating characters after he leaves, however none of them fairly really feel like a correct companion. If you are feeling the identical, a brand new companion mod at the moment within the works would possibly enchantment.

The method it really works is easy. Once you obtain it, you may merely stroll over to any NPC, they usually’ll observe you round with the press of a button. They can struggle, too, and you may corral as lots of them as you please. It can look a tad unwieldy at occasions.

Creator Catmino explains on Nexus Mods that they obtained the mod to work by spawning within the flathead and modifying its follower function to use to no matter NPC you fancy. It’s value mentioning straight off the bat, although, that this mod is a piece in progress. Catmino explains that the cyberpunk game can change into unplayable in the event you flip a boss right into a companion – whoops. Some NPCs can even disappear in the event you depart the realm, and their harm output varies as some don’t come with a weapon.

All these points are being ironed out, but it surely’s additionally value noting that making an attempt to show a companion again into an NPC could trigger the sport to “flatline”, too. As ever, mod at your discretion. If you wish to attempt this mod out for your self, although, you’ll find the obtain directions over on Nexus Mods (linked above).
