Best Mods for Gorilla Arms

When selecting the best mods that complement your Gorilla Arms in Cyperpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, they include Animal Knuckles, Rin3u battery, and black-market battery.

The Animal Knuckles mod significantly increases the damage you can afflict by equipping Gorilla Arms. This causes internal bleeding to your enemies that can severely affect them in combat situations, putting you at a great advantage. Animal Knuckles can be obtained for 5000 Eddies at Charter Hill’s Ripperdoc area.

The Rin3u battery is best known for its ability to recharge your stamina to the fullest. This can be achieved provided you kill an opponent by equipping Gorilla Arms. The Rin3u battery costs you 5000 Eddies and can be obtained at Kabuki’s Ripperdoc.

Its ability can significantly help when you engage multiple opponents, leading to frequent exhaustion of stamina.

If you want to do more damage with your Gorilla Arms, the Black-Market battery is the mod for you in Cyberpunk 2077. Equipping this mod alongside Gorilla Arms will get you a 100 percent damage increase every time you engage in combat.

This will make things very easy for you and can be used to knock out stronger opponents that take more time due to their large health pool. Black-Market Battery is found at Charter Hill’s Ripperdoc.

Mantis Blades vs. Gorilla Arms

The Gorilla Arms stand out for their dominance in close-range encounters and the massive chunk of damage they afflict compared to Mantis Blades in Cyberpunk 2077. Furthermore, they also force your opponent to get shoved into the ground.

Mantis blades get outclassed by any other bladed weapon as well. Gorilla Arms also gets you the blunt perks and stands out in missions like Beat on the Brat and Cyberpsycho Missions. They also help more when engaging turrets and robots and can help blast your way through some doors if you find bypassing the locks tedious.

The Gorilla Arms also outperforms Mantis Blades in Critical Chance and Bleeding Chance stats. However, Mantis Blades are more aesthetically appealing and add gruesome animations when killing opponents.

Furthermore, they grant you some Blade perks. Mantis Blades can help you leap at your opponents. This can change the tide in your situation as it can help you take out your opponent by surprise.

Mantis Blades emerge when you engage low-threat targets as you can handle them effectively due to unlimited light attacks. They don’t exhaust your stamina much compared to other melee weapons when you perform a heavy attack.

Do Gorilla Arms Increase Katana Damage?

The Gorilla Arms Cyberware in Cyberpunk 2077 can significantly increase Katana Damage, helping you to take out your opponent quickly. Gorilla Arms increase blunt weapon damage by 30-50 percent.
