With the Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 update and Phantom Liberty expansions, you’ll have to consider Cyberware Capacity. No one wants to deal with the mental brutality of Cyberpsychosis like we’ve seen in the game and the anime Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. Therefore, we’ll show you how to increase Cyberware Capacity in Cyberpunk 2077 so you can customize your augments more efficiently.

How to Increase Cyberware Capacity in Cyberpunk 2077

To put a long story short, Cyberware Capacity can be increased by leveling up. The simple and steady gain of experience through jobs and acquiring capacity shards is the gist of it. More specifically, you need to:

  • Invest in the Technical Skill Tree.
  • Collect Cyberware Capacity Shards.
  • Leveling Up Engineer Skills.

Playing around the new skill tree system will allow you to refund and customize allotted points. Feel free to try perks and find what works best for you. All aforementioned methods work together to provide you with close to the maximum capacity by Level 45+. At that point, you’ll probably have each part of your body augmented.

Perks That Increase Cyberware Capacity

Essentially, if you decide to refund perks, you can allocate them as you wish. The best way to focus on Cyberware Capacity is through the Renaissance Punk and Edgerunner perks.

Both are found in the Technical Ability perk tree, and they increase your capacity in various ways.

  • Edgerunner: Requires Attribute Level 20 and allows you to increase capacity at the cost of health.
  • Renaissance Punk: For each Attribute at nine or higher, you’ll get a flat bonus to your capacity.

Lastly, don’t neglect the Engineer skill at Rank 10 and Rank 30, as it will also aid you like the perks. And do not forget about the Chrome Compressor, which is a capacity-boosting operating system cyberware.

Now that you know the basics of increasing your augment options, be sure to aim for 200+ to 300 Cyberware Capacity. This is generally at the end game, as the best Cyberware requires that much. At the end of the day, perform gigs and steadily level up, and your capacity will naturally increase through the course of the game and expansion.

That’s how to increase Cyberware Capacity in Cyberpunk 2077. If you found this guide useful, check out our other Cyberpunk 2077 tips on the base game and the Phantom Liberty expansion, like how to start the Phantom Liberty storyline or the best mods to install.
