Clothing and Armor have been reworked in Update 2.0 of Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty. Check out our guide to learn more about the major changes for clothing and armor in the latest patch!
|Summary of the 2.0 Crafting Changes|
After Update 2.0, the only clothing items that retained practical functions are those that make sense for the setting. Bulletproof vests will offer bonus armor, tactical vests will give you quicker reloads, and Netrunner visors offer faster quickhack upload times.
Visit one of the many Ripperdoc clinics in Night City to get implants and upgrade any you have equipped to get more armor at higher cyberware tiers. Do note that the amount of implants you can receive will be dictated by your Cyberware Capacity Limit.
Since clothing items are now primarily cosmetic in nature, it follows that CDPR also patched them out from the updated crafting system. As of Update 2.0, clothing and clothing mods can no longer be crafted. Schematics you own or that were previously sold by vendors have also been removed from the game.
In the earlier versions of the game, battles against multiple opponents tended to devolve into a confusing mess of frantic looting once the dust settled. To prevent this from becoming an immersion-breaking issue, CDPR has nerfed the economy in Update 2.0.
Post-patch, NPCs will no longer drop clothing, reducing the amount of items you need to loot after drawn-out combat sequences. Now, the only way to get clothing items will be via the clothing vendors or chests found throughout Night City.
Since clothing items no longer offer utility in Update 2.0, their prices have been adjusted accordingly. Now, all clothing prices and clothing sell values have been significantly lowered.
On the flipside, CDPR also shipped some quality-of-life changes for the Wardrobe. Since clothing vendors will now be one of your primary sources for transmogs, the Wardrobe feature will also be accessible as one of their dialogue options.
