Best Cyberware Mods

There are multiple cyberware mods that will be useful depending on your style of play. Here are some of the team's suggestion on the best cyberware you can use.

Sensory Amplifier

Sensory Amplifiers, depending on their effect, can either increase Armor, Health, Crit Chance or Crit Damage. Either way this is one of the most useful mods you can have on your Cyberware.

Knuckles

For those using Gorilla Arms, the Knuckles mod will give Gorilla Arms an added effect. If you are building a Poison-oriented or Burn-oriented approach, then you will need this mod.

Monowire

Similar to Knuckles, you can a special effect to Monowire including Thermal and Shock which could provide an alternate venue of attack.

Mantis Blades

This too can add special effects to Mantis Blades. Depending on your build, it could be useful to change the mod depending on your enemy.

Sandevistan

The Sandevistan mods increase a variety of effects which will increase the potency of your Sandevistan.

Best Mod Combinations

Cyberwares can be combined based on whatever build you are using. But certain mods do have a better effect depending on which mod you combine them with.

Mods Best Build To Use With
Any damage-type modifier for Monowire, Gorilla Arms, or Mantis Blades + Black Market Battery
With the Black Market Battery, the first hit of any of these Arm Cyberwares will most likely be fatal. Plus the damag eeffects of these damage type modifier can be extremely deadly.
Monowire Build
Gorilla Arms Build
Mantis Blades Build
Sandevistan: Overclocked Processor + any Sandevistan that increases damage/armor
With the extension of Sandevistan, this would make you benefit from all the effects of the Cyberware even longer. The addition of the other Sandevistan mods will make it even deadlier.
Blunt Melee Weapons Build
Stealth Build
Blades Build
Gunslinger Build
Assault Rifle Build
Smart Weapons Build
Tech Weapons Build
Cold Blood Build
Monowire Build
Gorilla Arms Build
Mantis Blades Build

    • In the crafting screen, would love to see a comparison between what I'm currently equipped with vs what I've selected to craft. In the Inventory screen, I have no idea where any extra weight is without going into each category (weapons, clothes, etc). Please add some sort of weight indicator next to each category so I know exactly where I seem to be overloaded. In the Map, please mark completed items (assault in progress, access points), grey out the icons or something similar?

      it's fine, I just took an older save before Takemura calls me
