As is often the case with cool mods that set the internet alight, this one previously popped up on Nexus Mods. It was originally uploaded by a user called almico, and it has already been downloaded 1,200 times.

Why you might want to think twice before modding your game

This particular mod file has been scanned for viruses and declared 'safe to use' on NexusMods, but still, you might want to think twice before you tinker too much with your copy of Cyberpunk 2077.
