Cyberpunk 2077 has been mired in controversies since launch, but a brand-new Nexus Mod aims to bring some much-needed levity to the experience by giving PC players the ability to change their in-game hairstyle whenever and however many times as they want.
The mod, created by user woodbricks, grants players access to all the hairstyles available in Cyberpunk 2077. Once installed, players can swap between the 39 haircuts for both male and female characters. However, those who’ve customized their V with a totally bald cut cannot change it to any of the other 38. Additionally, while the mod is compatible with both genders, hairstyles won’t neatly swap between the two due to head shape and character model.
There are specific instructions for changing V’s hairstyle with this Nexus Mod. PC players will have to locate their save file, download and install a Hex editing program like this one, edit the file in question by changing V’s hair to the corresponding Hex code of their choosing, and save. Relaunching the game after completing the steps is not necessary; players can simply load their save file and continuing playing Cyberpunk 2077 with their freshly cut V.
The absence of hair customization is curious since Night City is rife with other establishments that reflect real-world activities and places, including clothing stores and restaurants. That developer CD Projekt Red didn’t set up hair salons is puzzling, so this mod is a welcomed inclusion.
Cyberpunk 2077 has caught a lot of heat since its December 10 launch. Employees at the studio have asked its board and publisher CD Projekt pointed questions about the game’s development and marketing, and the publisher could face a class-action lawsuit for it. Though the studio is offering refunds for both PlayStation and Xbox users, CD Projekt Red has rolled out a new PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One patch that addresses a myriad of bugs.
