What to do with an active chimera core in Cyberpunk 2077

When the President tells you to find a potentially unstable power source for a giant military prototype, you should probably do it without thinking. You will find the Chimera Active Core after destroying the Chimera prototype in the mission “Lucretia, My Reflection” in  Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty  . You’ll know when you click on it because it’s not easy to forget. Good news! It can be safely stored in your pocket indefinitely. The Active Chimera Core’s description says it still radiates power, so you should definitely put it in your pants.


However, while an active Chimera Core won’t damage anything in your inventory, you can put it to good use. Basically, you can do two things with it.

The first is to display it in V’s (main) apartment. So it will be useful to collect dust, and… That’s all.

However, a more functional use of the core is to create weapon modifications. You can do this at any time by opening your inventory, going to the crafting section and going to the mods tab. There are four possible mods you can create. They are:

  • Powerful Weapon Mod – Fireworks:  Fires explosive projectiles.
  • Weapon tech mod – Wallpuncher:  allows you to charge weapons up to 200% capacity without increasing the charging time. +100% armor penetration. No penalties for breaking into cover.
  • Smart weapon mod – Hackatomy  : +5% chance to apply a quick hack effect. The effect depends on the affected part of the body.
  • Melee Weapon Mod – Severance  : When an enemy is below 50% health, each hit to the head or limbs has a 20% chance of dismembering and instantly killing.

It’s also worth noting that these mods can be removed from weapons. However, you should also keep in mind that the Chimera Active Core can only be used once. Choose wisely.
