Key Features

  • Humanity is a new stat that is affected by installed cyberware, Berserk/Sandevistan use, and committed killings.
  • Several Humanity thresholds, each with its own set of effects and images.
  • When humanity reaches a critical mass, there is a risk of cyberpsychosis.
  • Cyberware The cost of humanity is determined by the kind and quality of implants.
  • New injector that should aid you with Humanity management.
  • New widgets for keeping track of your current Humanity value
  • Menu of Modifications


Humanity is a new stat that is affected by installed cyberware, Berserk/Sandevistan use, and committed killings. Each implant permanently reduces your Humanity when implanted, however cyberware use and enemy kills temporarily reduce it so you may recover it after having the “Rested” effect (simply go to sleep to receive it) or other apartment events like Energized or Refreshed. You may check your current Humanity value via the Cyberware menu screen or a new widget that will appear above the player’s HP meter.

There are a few Humanity thresholds that influence your personality:

  • Glitches: causes minor visual glitches and adds a critical damage debuff; it is best to sleep at this point.
  • Pre-Psychosis: causes additional visual glitches and adds a critical chance debuff; it may potentially cause Cyberpsychosis (configurable).
  • Cyberpsychosis: initiates the most severe visual glitches, but improves your movement speed, armor value, and life regeneration, and if your character is not in an interior or hazardous place, it also activates police spawn. When the Cyberpsychosis effect wears off, you will be transferred to one of the 20+ predetermined places if the corresponding option is activated.

Neuroblockers may be used to avoid any low Humanity penalties.

Humanity Cost

Each implant now has its own Humanity Cost that is determined by the equipment slot and quality. For example, by default, Humanity Cost 10 will be assigned to Common quality implants for Frontal Cortex slots since the basic cost for Frontal Cortex is 5 and the Common quality multiplier is 2.0.


Neuroblockers is a new injector which removes low Humanity side-effects and freezes Humanity points loss while active. You can by it at some Ripperdocs, plus Neuroblockers crafting recipe was added to a few medical shops.

  • Common Neuroblockers: Instant Implants, Cassius, Bucks’ Clinic
  • Uncommon Neuroblockers: Fingers M.D., Octavio’s Clinic
  • Rare Neuroblockers: Kraviz’s Clinic, Viktor’s Clinic
