Cyberpunk 2077 update may contain clues to upcoming transmog system

The new Cyberpunk 2077 1.5 patch may contain clues to future game updates, with one player apparently discovering a reference to a transmog system.

The recent 1.5 update for Cyberpunk 2077 seems to contain the beginnings of a transmogrification system. Developer CD Projekt Red released this futuristic RPG in late 2020, but the game got off to a rocky start with numerous glitches and bugs, especially on the console versions. Shortly after the release of Cyberpunk 2077, Sony pulled it from the PlayStation Store following a flood of user complaints. It has since been added back to the store after several updates and fixes. A little over a year later and it seems Cyberpunk 2077 is finally well on its way to becoming what players have been hoping for.

The list of fixes includes new weapons, additional apartments to purchase, a hair mirror, and an overall rebalancing of gameplay, economy, and loot systems. There are also several updates aimed at the latest gaming hardware, like ray-traced local shadows, improved crowd reactions, and one in particular for PS5 controller functionality, DualSense.

As reported by Gamer on PCReddit user djkovrik discovered a feature in Cyberpunk 2077the 1.5 patch called “transmogrify“, potentially suggesting that a transmogrification system is on the way. The post on Reddit reads:

Patch 1.5 brought some sort of gear hiding system which is disabled for now and internally called ‘transmog’, you can enable it with the console command Game.EnableTransmog() for head slots and or using my Hide Your Gear mod to extend it for all slot machines (get an alternative version).

It looks like CDPR is planning to introduce a full transmog system in the future, but in the meantime, this feature only allows players to “hide” parts in their face and head gear slots. With Djkovrik’s workaround, this functionality can at least extend to the rest of a player’s gear slots, as long as they’re playing on PC and not consoles.


Transmog, or “tmog” as many in the gaming community refer to it, is the ability to change the overall appearance of a character’s gear or individual pieces while retaining stats, buffs, or perks of their currently equipped equipment. Transmog is available in games like AC Valhalla, and is a fan-favorite feature for RPG players. Many RPGs use a feature like this because if players love adventure or combat, there’s perhaps nothing more liberating than customizing a character’s appearance without having to leave behind him his favorite or most powerful pieces of equipment.

Despite a difficult start when it was launched, Cyberpunk 2077 had a lot of positive feedback from players regarding the story, characters, and quests. Adding a new feature like transmogrification might not solve all the game’s problems, but it might attract more people. With many players trying the game for the first time with Cyberpunk 2077It is clear that CDPR’s efforts over the past year have had an impact. Perhaps those who avoided the game during its eventful release feel more inclined to watch how Cyberpunk 2077 has since improved.
