Cyberpunk 2077: Best Ripperdoc Upgrades to Get First

Cyberpunk 2077 is the latest open-world RPG from CD Projekt Red, the developing studio best known for their work on the Witcher trilogy. This game serves as their take on the dystopian sci-fi genre and takes place in a bustling metropolis called Night City. Players take control of a mercenary named V, and will get to install all sorts of cybernetic implants to enhance his physical abilities. Here’s a list of the best Ripperdoc upgrades to get first in Cyberpunk 2077.

Best Ripperdoc Upgrades in Cyberpunk 2077

Ripperdoc upgrades are extremely expensive in Cyberpunk 2077, which means that it’ll probably take a while for you to get them all. That being said, we’ve put together a short list of the best ones that we think you should prioritize.

We’ve categorized them by type, as listed below.

Frontal Cortex

Camillo RAM ManagerWhen your Cyberdeck RAM reaches 2, instantly free 30% of it. 4-minute cooldown.16 Intelligence14,000West Wind Estate, Pacifica
Heal-on-KillInstantaly restore 10% health after defeating an enemy.18 Reflexes35,000Northside, Watson
Mechatronic CoreIncreases damage to drones, mechs, and robots by 50%.16 Technical Ability21,000West Wind Estate, Pacifica

The Camillo RAM Manager is pretty crucial, especially if you’re using a build that relies heavily on RAM management and quickhacks. Kill-on-Heal is easily one of the best Ripperdoc upgrades in the game no matter what build you’re working towards, as you’ll essentially never have to worry about health again, especially if you’re stocked up on healing items.

Circulatory System

Adrenaline BoosterInstantly restores 50% stamina when you defeat an enemy.18 Body28,000Kabuki, Watson
BioconductorReduces all cyberware cooldowns by 30%.18 Body14,000Badlands, Night City Outskirts
BiomonitorInstantly restores 100% health when health drops to 15%, 120-second cooldown.18 Body42,000Badlands, Night City Outskirts
Blood PumpActivate to instantly restore 90% of max health, 180-second cooldown

The Circulatory System upgrades are primarily focused on health and stamina regeneration, and because of that, you’ll need to make sure that your Body stat is high enough. That being said, these upgrades will likely make the game extremely easy, as you won’t need to worry about health management if you also got the Frontal Cortex upgrades.

Nervous System

KerenzikovAllows you to aim and shoot while dodging. Slows time by 90% for 3.5 seconds when blocking, aiming, or attacking during a slide or dodge. 5-second cooldown.18 Reflexes35,000Arroyo, Santo Domingo

Synaptic AcceleratorSlows time by 50% for 4 seconds when you are detected by enemies. 60-second cooldown.20 Reflexes35,000Japantown, Westbrook

The Nervous System upgrades we’ve picked out are focused on slowing down time and essentially giving you ample opportunity to react accordingly when you’ve been spotted by an enemy, or when you need an edge in a gunfight.


Bionic LungsIncreases stamina by 60%.18 Body14,000Charter Hill, Westbrook
Synaptic Signal OptimizerIncreases health by 60%.20 Body28,000Charter Hill, Westbrook

Both upgrades here are just stat increases for your health and stamina, which are always useful in any situation.

Immune System

CataresistIncreases all resistances by 35%.15 Cool14,000Japantown, Westbrook
Pain EditorReduces all incoming damage by 10%.16 Cool28,000Japantown, Westbrook

The Immune System Ripperdoc upgrades are meant to mitigate all incoming damage, drastically increasing V’s chances of survival when caught in a fight.

Projectile Launch SystemUnleashes powerful projectiles that vary in damage, cause explosions and status effects.45 Street Cred100,250Wellsprings, Heywood

The Gorilla Arms and the Mantis Blades upgrades will help with raw damage output, and you should definitely try to get either of those as soon as you can. The Projectile Launch System is also available as an arm enhancement, though your mileage may vary with that one, depending on your build type.
