Cyberpunk 2077 Mod Lets Players Play as Lucy From Edgerunners
A mod lets players roleplay as Lucy from Cyberpunk: Edgerunners in Cyberpunk 2077. When CD Projekt Red’s latest open-world RPG initially launched in 2020, it was panned by both critics and fans for containing many bugs and not performing well on the older gen consoles. However, two years later, Cyberpunk 2077 has seen a huge resurgence, with the Steam player count record for the game being broken consistently following the release of update 1.6. CD Projekt Red’s consistent improvements to the game have brought a lot of players back and attracted new ones, but that isn’t the only reason people are venturing through Night City again.
One of the most popular characters from Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is Lucy, whose real name is Lucyna Kushinada. Now, thanks to modder onesieninja over on the Nexus, players can continue Lucy’s story following the end of the anime. While the Lucy’s Beginning Custom Start mod requires a few other mods to load and needs players to pick the Nomad and female options when making their character, for those who want to imagine where her story goes, it may be worth it to experience onesieninja’s headcanon of how the netrunner fits into Cyberpunk 2077.
In her own custom beginning, Lucy returns to Night City in the Cyberpunk 2077 mod and joins a Nomad clan. There, she assumes the pseudonym of V and meets Jackie Welles. While the mod might cause some confusion considering how it messes with the timeline of the anime and game, the main attraction here is being able to play as one of Edgerunners’ most popular characters. Also, the build given to the player in the Lucy’s Beginning mod appears to be incredibly strong, starting at level 20 with 38 perks and a full netrunning outfit.
Alongside her outfit and abilities, onesieninja’s mod also gives players access to Lucy’s pistol from Cyberpunk: Egderunners, something that has already been introduced to Cyberpunk 2077 in a prior mod. Officially, CD Projekt Red has added another character’s weapon from Cyberpunk: Edgerunners in the form of Rebecca’s shotgun, but with the success of the anime, many are hoping more pieces of gear and references will make their way into the game soon.
Cyberpunk 2077 is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
