What you need to know
- Cyberpunk 2077 devs confirmed that they will be working to decrease the number of dildos that spawn in-game.
- The dildos appeared en masse throughout the map as a collectible, but quest designer Philipp Weber noted that the number is going to be adjusted in future updates.
- Weber also hints that a hotfix might've addressed that issue already.
It's no secret that Cyberpunk 2077 is a game about sex. Sure, it attempts to tackle other ideas as well, but it revels in its sexuality. The world of Night City is filled with sex shops, different kinds of sex workers, and different ways to get off. It's also filled with dildos. Maybe... too many dildos?
Many people — including some of us who played the game pre-launch or immediately after — noted the sheer amount of dildos that appeared to spawn around the map. This is a world where people's standards for what can be considered taboo are much lower, according to senior quest designer Philipp Weber in a Kotaku interview, but that doesn't explain why there are just so many in the trash. Dildos can be expensive, you don't just throw those out, especially if you get something like the Pilomancer 3000, which in-game looks to be at least two feet long.
However, many (including me) noticed that the number spawning just on the side of the street has decreased since launch. Weber said that a recent hotfix "may" have adjusted that number. He also confirmed to Kotaku that the team will continue to adjust the rate at which they spawn, admitting that the original number might have been too high. Since they can spawn as random loot, they can appear anywhere random loot might show up.
"They can spawn as random loot, and we were still tweaking those settings, so especially during the early reviews, the amount of dildos in the game world was pretty high," he said. "We're going to adjust them so that the dildos don't appear too out of place/context and distracting and more where they should be by design."
However, there's plenty of sexual imagery to go around, whether you want to visit one of the numerous sex shops or swing around Sir John Phallustiff, a one-handed melee weapon that looks just a bit suggestive.
Enter Night City
An open world in more ways than one
Cyberpunk 2077 is the latest project from CD Projekt Red, the developers behind the Witcher 3. It has some performance issues on consoles, but it's ambitious, visually impressive, and might just be what you're looking for.

I can honestly say that's a headline I never anticipated reading on this site....
same here... lol wtf...
Whatever. There's a bunch of dildos spawning all over in real life too!
I'm sure people have collected every one they could find and dropped them all over their apartment.
My biggest regret was getting the perk that automatically scrapped junk items upon collection so I can't run around with an inventory full of dildos. That being said, I am surprised this is getting reduced, given the fact the game is set in a dystopian, bleak, future, I feel like dildo's are probably the only thing keeping people sane.
Honestly, I am pretty sure a discount was the FIRST piece of junk I picked up. Maybe there are too many in the game. 🤪
There goes all my Eurodollars for selling all the dildos
Dan is going to love the seo for this one. *opens duo. checks weedmaps on one screen and Google analytics on the other to see windows central and Dildos in the same link * ...🤔😳 Wtf ...
Dildos = BAD
Shooting people = ok Go figure.
I think that paradox sums up American culture nicely
Except it's not just American culture.
Kudos on the puns. Personally I never thought I'd see this kind of headline.
The devs took the premise of the game in a completely wrong direction. Nothing like many people expected from what was shown in the trailer that came out seven years ago. What a waste. CD Project Red should have just given the idea to Rockstar and we could have actually had plausible storylines and gameplay meant for adults instead of teens that just reached puberty.
