Cyberpunk update 1.5 includes the debut of a transmog system

Update 1.5 for Cyberpunk 2077 introduced a host of changes, including the framework for changing your character’s clothing without changing their stats, currently disabled in-game but accessible via console (available for download here.)

DJ_Kovrik explained on Reddit and NexusMods that the ability to hide gear in your face/head inventory slots can be enabled with the “Game.EnableTransmog()” console command. DJ_Kovrik has also extended this utility to other inventory slots through his Hide Your Gear mod.

Hiding equipped items is fine, but the name of the system in console, “transmog”, implies that a more comprehensive appearance modification mechanism may be coming in the future. Cyberpunk could definitely use it: the game maintains a steady stream of gray, blue, green, and purple rarity items that come to you with increasing stats, with any cool cyberpunk look quickly outdated by the next random drop.

I’ve always thought The Witcher 3 had a similar mode issue at launch that was fixed in this game with the Witcher School gear DLCs: powerful and fashionable sets that gained strength and cool factor as you level them up throughout the game. Cyberpunk 2077’s own gear upgrade system, on the other hand, struggles to keep up with the new stuff you find.

It is unknown when CD Projekt will implement the full transmog system. It’ll probably be a while before you see the 1.6 update, but DJ_Kovrik’s utility might help you look good in the meantime.
