Cyberpunk 2077 transmog: How to change your clothes' appearance with the new transmog wardrobe feature

How does the new Cyberpunk 2077 transmog feature work?

Want to know how the new Cyberpunk 2077 transmog feature works? Transmog in games is the ability to change the visual look of your clothes without actually changing the clothes themselves. In the context of Cyberpunk 2077, it means making your clothes look different while keeping their stat bonuses and armor values.

This is particularly important in Cyberpunk 2077, because as you may have noticed, constantly picking the highest-stat clothing for V almost always ends up making them look completely ridiculous, and just about as far from "cool" as possible.

But with Patch 1.6, CD Projekt Red have added transmog to Cyberpunk 2077, allowing you to keep the stat bonuses of your best weapons while simultaneously displaying your favourite outfits to the inhabitants of Night City. Read on to find out how the new transmog feature works, and how to use it.

How does transmog work in Cyberpunk 2077?

To use transmog in Cyberpunk 2077, you need to go to your Apartment and interact with your wardrobe. As of Patch 1.6, you can create and save up to 6 outfits from within your wardrobe, mixing and matching whatever clothing you want in order to make your ideal look for V.

When you first open up your wardrobe after Patch 1.6, a tutorial panel will appear explaining how transmog works. Click past this panel and you can start creating outfits out of the clothes you currently have in your inventory. Once you've saved an outfit in your wardrobe, you can go into your inventory at any time and click on the Outfit panel on the right-hand side of your screen. Now select the outfit you want V to wear.

Once an outfit is selected, you can go back into your main inventory and swap out your clothes for those items with the best armour ratings and stats. But V will still look like they're wearing the outfit you chose for them. Transmog is a wonderful thing.
