How To Get Optical Camo In Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty

Obtain cyberware that helps you sneak around in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty.


Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty has several items, armaments, and implants for you to try out. One equipment in particular helps you plan a stealthy approach. Our guide discusses how to get the Optical Camo in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, which is quite important if you want to make the most out of certain abilities in the game.

How to get the Optical Camo in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty

The Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty Optical Camo is a cyberware implant that's sold by certain Ripperdocs. In our case, we were able to find these among vendor wares in the following shop locations:

  • Santo Domingo: Rancho Coronado East/Woodhaven Street
  • Pacifica: West Wind Apartments
  • Dogtown (Phantom Liberty expansion only): Longshore Stacks and EBM Petrochem Stadium

In case you don't see the item being sold, you may need to open your menu and select the Skip Time option. You'll want to wait for a full 24 hours in-game, which may cause the vendor to restock their wares. Once you see that it's available, you can then purchase it. The cost increases depending on the rarity, but we suggest purchasing the tier 5 option for around 51,000 credits.

Optical Camo usage and effects

The Optical Camo must first be installed into an Integumentary System slot via a Ripperdoc NPC. You'll then be able to select it by going to your inventory and adding it to a Quick Access slot in the bottom-left corner. It can be activated depending on which slot it's equipped (i.e. pressing the middle mouse button or RB/R1).

By default, the tier 5 version has the following effects:

  • -90% visibility to enemies for seven seconds
  • Makes you very hard to detect outside of combat and harder to hit when in combat.

However, those who also own the Phantom Liberty expansion can unlock new Relic abilities, such as Emergency Cloaking. This causes enemies to lose track of you when you activate Optical Camo during combat, essentially presenting a means of escape if you're outnumbered. Certain iconic weapons like Her Majesty also make use of Optical Camo to gain additional effects.

Most enemies won't spot you even if you're right in front of them.

In any case, that's everything you need to know about how to get the Optical Camo in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty. The related ability, Emergency Cloaking, is just one of several skills that you can obtain, but you do need to look for Relic point terminals if you want to unlock others.
