The latest Cyberpunk 2077 update has sneaked in an interesting bit of code that could hint at the ability to hide a player’s outfit in the near future. Formally known as “transmog” in the gaming community, the feature would allow players to change their character’s appearance while preserving their gear’s stats. If so, players no longer have to choose between looking cool and protecting themselves – a sacrifice many fans of the game developer CDPR have been asking to solve.
How to transmog in Cyberpunk 2077
Unfortunately, the transmog feature has not yet been fully implemented in Cyberpunk 2077. As reported by XFireHowever, Reddit user and Cyberpunk 2077 modder DJ_Kovrik found code in the game’s files that reference a transmog system currently in the works. In particular, the new code appeared in the latest 1.5 patch that was released along with the game’s PS5 upgrade. While it’s disabled for now, the modder found that players could enable the head and face slots feature. Going further, DJ_Kovrik was also able to create their own mod that enabled the feature for all outfit slots.
It’s a remarkable development, as fans of the game have been asking for the feature since the game’s launch. As they progressed through the game, players often found themselves at a crossroads: should you keep wearing that nice jacket you like, or opt for the hideous rainbow vest that gave you better defense stats? Given Cyberpunk 2077’s focus on style, many players found the choice a hard pill to swallow.
That said, the feature in its current form technically is not a transmog. Rather, it’s the ability to hide outfits you don’t want to see on your character. Transmogging also comes in the base game in the form of wearable special outfits, but they are rare and only come in full body pieces. However, since CDPR specifically calls it “transmog” in the game’s code, it’s still something to look forward to.
