More and more people were asking for a 3rd person option for the Cyberpunk even before it came out and announced that it was a 1st person game. Now, he finally has a 3rd person mod and here’s a complete guide on how to use it.
The first thing you wanna do is go to this link: https://www.nexusmods.com/cyberpunk2077/mods/669?tab=description, this is where you can download the mod for the 3rd person. Just find the “JB – TPP MOD WIP THIRD PERSON” mod, then head to files and download the files you need for the character you have.
Just extract the files you downloaded to the same folder that contains your Cyberpunk 2077 game. Then launch the game.
Once you launch the game you just need to press B in order to change camera angles and switch to 3rd person. The first press will get to a traditional 3rd person view where the camera angle is a few meters apart from your character.
Then the next press will give you a front view of your character just in case you want to see how your character looks.
The next press is closer, on the shoulder view, not too far from your character but not too close as well.
As much as we are all excited with 3rd person view, this mod isn’t perfect. It simply pulls the camera back so you can see the character that was there but hidden out of view. You can even notice that in the front view the character is bald and lacks armor placed on the head. Even if you take out your weapon your character’s body starts to distort and the character’s animation doesn’t seem realistic in 3rd person’s view.
Since the game originally works in 1st person view expect bugs in using another view on this game. But yes we finally have a way to play a 3rd person and even though the mod is a work in progress, it works and it still worth to give it a try.
