The new Vehicle Combat mod now allows Cyberpunk 2077 players to use weapons while driving and also improves the game’s sought after system.
Thanks to a new mod, Cyberpunk 2077Futuristic vehicle combat and police chases have improved. Developer CD Projekt Red’s action-adventure RPG was virtually unplayable when it was first released in 2020. In fact, Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.2 fixed over 500 errors, with the high number serving as a very visceral demonstration of everything that was wrong with the game in its original version. Now, a new mod adds to the enhanced gameplay experience by adding vehicular combat and making enemy NPCs harder in vehicle chases.
One of the most common complaints about the game upon release was its NPC police force. Players commented that interactions with the Night City Police Department seem incomplete, at odds with the rest of the video game. NPC cops would apparently materialize in the general area where a player is committing a crime and quickly drop their pursuit. As more details about CD Projekt Red’s development of the game came out, it was found that Cyberpunk 2077 Police system was added only in the last stages of development. The last minute addition of the Grand Theft Auto-esque Wanted System explains why encounters with the police feel unfinished at best.
As reported by Gamer on PCthe new Vehicle Combat mod created by the user Scissors on Nexus Mods leave now Cyberpunk 2077 players use weapons while driving and improves the wanted system of the game. Scissors mentions that the game code has some features that allow the player to use weapons while driving vehicles, but it seems that this aspect of the game has been disabled. However, with a few workarounds, Scissors was able to essentially restore that aspect of the game and allow players to aim and fire weapons while driving. The Vehicle Combat mod also fixes relatively uncommitted player pursuit by Cyberpunk 2077 police and other enemy NPCs. Various Night City gangs and factions, police scanner missions, and gigs can now call in reinforcements and pursue the player if the wanted level is high enough.
Despite the bugs that originally plagued Cyberpunk 2077 when it first came out, many dedicated fans were still playing it. Although CD Projekt Red released several official patches for the game to fix some bugs, these patches focused on improving stability and performance on all platforms. Two years after its initial launch, the RPG is in a better place, but many fans agree that several game features still need attention. The modding community has taken the initiative to improve the overall gaming experience by creating mods that have helped improve several aspects of the game. Like the Vehicle Combat mod, these Cyberpunk 2077 the mods give players a more enjoyable experience while playing the sci-fi title.
Over time, CD Projekt Red will no doubt work on implementing other features planned for Cyberpunk 2077. Until then, it looks like the fan base will continue to rely on the modding community to produce further improvements.
