One of the most infuriating things about Cyberpunk is the keyboard keybinds. While PCs have great functionality for mapping actions, the ability to rebind some actions is still missing.

This mod Adds options to the key bindings menu for Dodge (Disables double tap), Slow Walk, Primary Action, Secondary Action, A bunch of UI Navigation Buttons, Allows the arrow keys to be used in UI.

Config Overhaul for Cyberpunk 2077
Cyberpunk 2077 is one of those games that offer players the ability to almost customize every graphical setting in the game. Even though it looks like every graphical setting is available to players to customize, developers still hid some settings from players that can be disabled in order to increase FPS.
Config Overhaul by derplayer is a tool that allows players to configure hidden settings in the game and squeeze out more FPS. According to derplayer, the tool works by generating configuration files that will enable players to edit the hidden settings. The tool will not modify any executables so it is less risky than using a Hex editor or other methods.
