Cyberpunk 2077 Cyberware Implants Guide Ripperdoc 1

For lack of a better term, you’re living the life of a cyborg in Cyberpunk 2077. Indeed, practically everyone in the world has an implant. Here’s our guide to help you with Cyberware implants and items from the Ripperdoc. One of those items happens to be the Tabula E-Rasa which is extremely valuable.

Note: For more information, check out our Cyberpunk 2077 guides and features hub.

 

Cyberpunk 2077: Installing your Cyberware implants from the Ripperdoc

Fairly early on in Cyberpunk 2077‘s campaign, you’ll meet a Ripperdoc NPC. This character will give you the rundown when it comes to Cyberware implants.

Note: Your first meeting with a Ripperdoc has a lot of cinematic hoo-hahs (including getting your eye drilled). However, subsequent visits to that NPC (or to others) become a simple buy/sell/equip affair. Just remember that, while you can view and add mods to Cyberware via your inventory screen, the actual installation/equipping of implants can only be done by Night City’s Ripperdocs.

Anyway, for your first visit, you’ll likely have just a couple of Cyberware items in your inventory. If you click on a specific body part/slot, you can equip these to obtain a boost.

Now, if you click on other body parts/slots, you’ll see more options. These are the ones you’ve yet to obtain since they’d cost gold. Some would even require higher street cred or attribute level before they can be purchased.

Note: If you don’t have the Eurodollars to spare, you can pray to spot Cyberware items as loot drops or create them via Cyberpunk 2077‘s crafting system.

Anyway, here are some examples of Cyberware implants you’ll find in Cyberpunk 2077. Please be reminded that I only cited the street cred or attribute requirements, not the actual costs.

Note: The arms and legs Cyberware implants tend to be game-changers since they offer you new combat abilities or means of traversal.

Cp2 Cbwr Rpd 2The Tabula E-Rasa

Last but not least, if you check the “Trade” instead of the “Cyberware” hub, you’ll see the goods being sold by the Ripperdoc. One of these items happens to be the Tabula E-Rasa. I’d have to say that this is one of the most expensive items in Cyberpunk 2077, and one of the most highly sought-after as well since it costs 100,000 Eurodollars or “eddies.”

Why so expensive? Well, that’s because the Tabula E-Rasa is currently the only known means of resetting your skill points in the game. As such, it boils down to a choice: make the correct picks when it comes to your skills/perks, or spend a lot of cash just to reset.
