Because Cyberpunk 2077 modding is still in its early stages, the ever-useful Vortex Mod Manager does not yet support it. It could be in the future, but not right now. Right now, the only option to install Cyberpunk 2077 modifications is to copy the files to your install folder.
The majority of modifications need you to download files that modify assets or add folders to your install folder. It’s as simple as downloading the files and putting them into your game’s installation directory. You’re most likely in the install folder if you can locate the Cyberpunk2077.exe and version.dll files.
2. You’ll need an unarchiving program to open the zip files the mod is stored in, so make sure you have 7zip, winzip, or winrar on hand.
3. Unzip the mod file’s folder and place it anywhere convenient for you, such as your desktop or downloads folder.
4. IMPORTANT INFORMATION
- FOR STEAM USERS: Locate Cyberpunk 2077 in your game collection, right-click it, go to Properties, Local Files tab, and Browse Local Files.
- FOR GOG USERS: Select the Settings button to the right of the play button on the Cyberpunk 2077 game page in your library, then Manage Installation > Configure.
5. This will open the game’s files and directories, which should contain the game launcher as well as other folders such as “archive” and “r6.”
6. It’s possible that various modifications will need the folder you downloaded to be put in different locations. A cosmetic modifying mod, for example, may need you to put the mod folder into Archive > PC > Patch (and create a patch folder if one does not already there).
7. If the mod page asks you to replace any directories by putting in the mod file, make a backup in case anything goes wrong.
8. Launch Cyberpunk 2077 after pasting the mod files into the appropriate directories to see whether the mod is operating properly.
When switching from one version of the game to another, be cautious. If you’re playing Cyberpunk 2077 on Steam, be sure to switch off auto-updates. Make a backup of your game data and saves before upgrading the game to ensure that you don’t lose everything if anything goes wrong. Updates may often cause previous modifications to misbehave or even cause the game to crash, so be mindful.
