Cyberpunk 2077 has interesting cyberware implants worth checking out, such as the Kerenzikov. The Kerenzikov cyberware implant allows players to slow down time while in the air to execute some fancy takedowns. Previously, the cyberware implants could be used with all kinds of weapons, but that is no longer the case after the release of the Phantom Liberty DLC.
The Kerenzikov cyberware implant has been reworked and can only be used with ranged weapons now. Keeping this in mind, many players no longer know how to use the Kerenzikov. Fortunately, this guide will illustrate how to use the Kerenzikov in Cyberpunk 2077 along with other useful information.
How to Use the Kerenzikov after the Cyberpunk 2077 Update
As mentioned above, the Kerenzikov can only be used with ranged weapons henceforth. To activate the cyberware implant, players must ADS while performing a dodge, slide, or dash. Once the Kerenzikov has been activated, players will have a few seconds to take aim and fire before the effect goes on cool down.
Players should use the Kerenzikov with the Alternative or Dynamic system active. Still, the former is the best option since it is difficult to slide with the Dynamic system.
It can take some time to get the hang of the cyberware implant and how it works, but once players get the hang of it, they can use it to eliminate multiple enemies without breaking a sweat.
For best results, players should pair the Kerenzikov with the Reflexes Attribute. The Reflexes Attribute can be found under the Headhunter skill tree, increasing Crit Chance by 0.5% for every attribute point owned. It also offers Weapon Handling and Reload Speed, making it an excellent upgrade for players who enjoy challenging gunfights.
Best Kerenzikov Mods
While the Kerenzikov has been nerfed after the update, players can restore it to its former glory using a mod. The Better Kerenzikov mod allows players to use the cyberware implant with shotguns and melee weapons, too. In fact, the mod shares several mechanics with the Sandevistan cyberware implant, such as no slow-mo and movement speed. Players can also use the mod to increase active duration, eliminate time restrictions, and adjust cooldown as they see fit.
The Kerenzikov is worth looking into, but many players have reported bugs while using the cyberware implant. To fix this issue, players can either restart the game, update their game, or load a recent save file.
