Cyberpunk 2077

It’s been a whole year since Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red’s open-world RPG came out and has seen a number of bug fixes, and general improvements. It’s still far away from what was advertised and seems to have disappeared from all conversation. Despite everything, the PC version has been the most stable, with more people warming up to the title after the negative reception. The modding community has played a vital role in improving the game, and at times completely overhauling various systems in-game. If you want to install the Cyberpunk 2077 Zoomable Scopes Mod, here is how you can do that.

We have covered plenty of Cyberpunk 2077 mods around launch, and you can check out our guides that include mods that can help in changing your hairstyle, customizing, or unlocking vehicles.

Cyberpunk 2077 Zoomable Scopes Mod

Mods for the game have come a long way, and some of the most useful ones are that add quality of life features. This mod allows you to zoom in while you are in scoped mode. It’s still a bit surprising that long-ranged weapons don’t let you do this, as this is something fairly common in many other titles with first-person gunplay.

Here is the mod in action shown in GIF provided by the mod author.

    • global.ini
    • version.dll
  • Note: Please ensure that all application overlays (like Rivatuner, Fraps, Afterburner, Discord, Steam, Gog, Windows 10 Game Bar, Geforce Experience) are disabled, as the Mod overlay might not show up.
