Playing Cyberpunk 2077 In Third-Person Is Pure Nightmare Fuel

There’s a way you can play Cyberpunk 2077 from a third-person perspective, but we have to warn you: it’s extremely cursed.

Last month, a mod creator uploaded to Youtube a demo of the game working in third-person mode. This week, a different modder has released their playable mod online so everyone can try it out for themselves.

The mod, JB – TPP MOD WIP third person, is available now on Nexusmods and seems to have a pretty easy and straightforward installation process. The description for the mod says in all caps “WORK IN PROGRESS,” which is something you should definitely know going in, because it’s wild.

Cyberpunk 2077 has a hard enough time as it is doing the things it’s supposed to do, so you can imagine what happens when you try to make the game do something it is NOT supposed to do. While things may look fine at a quick glance, once you start moving around, all bets are off.

This Reddit post shows the mod off in all its glory. There’s a lot of bizarre things that can happen, for example, your legs and torso can bounce around as you walk while your head and shoulders stay perfectly level.

Crouching and jumping also have some pretty hysterical effects. You can imagine that the character models were never meant to be seen this way, so they do a lot of things that the human body definitely can’t do, not even with mods.

If you’re willing to play without a head, then this is the mod for you. Like most Cyberpunk 2077 bugs, the Cronenbergian character models aren’t totally out of place in the game. Sometimes your character will twist itself up like a pretzel or the camera will get stuck looking at the inside of your own head, but I’ve definitely seen way worse in this game.

A Redditor also stumbled upon some kind of cult meeting at a club, and of course, who could forget the naked T-pose while driving your car. If I’m being honest, I don’t want CDPR to fix ALL of the bugs.
