While most Cyberpunk 2077 players are eagerly reading about the Phantom Liberty Expansion’s highly anticipated arrival, some are still hanging out in Night City while they wait.

For the veteran players who’ve already shot their way through all of the gigs in their quest log, scoured the underbelly of CDPR’s metropolis to unearth all of its hidden secrets and taken in the stunningly-rendered vistas of the game’s Ray Tracing Overdrive Mode, things might be getting a little stale.

If you’re in need of something fresh to persuade your version of V to stop sitting around watching TV and are a fan of getting things done stealthily, a new mod might be worth adding to your load order.

Feel like seeing your next battle in Cyberpunk 2077 from a completely different (and quite green) perspective?

The mod in question is called ‘Kiroshi Optics Night Vision Mod’ and is the work of prolific modder NexusGuy999, also known as KeanuWheeze. Some of their previous projects have helped bring interactive smart windows to Night City’s apartments and given V the ability to sit down for a rest anywhere they please.

This time, they’ve added a new cyberware modification to the game that’ll allow you to toggle your Kiroshi optics in and out of a special night vision mode that makes it much easier to see in dark areas.

Purchasable from select ripperdocs throughout Night City, this ability is perfect for those who prefer to take out their targets under cover of darkness or hunt for hidden back entrances to hideouts that inevitably involve crawling through shadowy tunnels and narrow nooks.

Or, I suppose you could just flick it on before heading into The Afterlife or Maelstrom’s nightclub and see if the green hue helps make raving under the neon lights even more disconcerting than usual.

You’ll no doubt be glad to hear that, in either case, you’ll be able to set up a custom keybind to instantly turn your new gadget on and off, ensuring you know exactly what to press if someone suddenly turns the lights up and you suddenly go from a cool Captain Price cosplayer to a blind fall-risk.

If you’ve not been put off by the idea of accidentally seeing more green than is contained within Fallout 3, you’ll first need to grab Awpsoleet’s ‘Cyber Engine Tweaks’, Psiberx’s ‘Codeware’ and NexusGuy999’s own ‘Native Settings UI’, in order to get things working as intended.

Regardless of whether you’re now out shopping for some killer tactical gear to match your sweet new ability, be sure to follow us for more interesting Cyberpunk 2077 mods! We've got some awesome guides on how to romance Johnny Silverhand, and perhaps most importantly, how to pet your cat.
