Cyberpunk 2077 mod reveals true horror of V’s sleeping position

Do you sleep sideways on your bed? Like, deliberately? It turns out Cyberpunk 2077 protagonist V does.

Ever since Cyberpunk 2077 came out in December players have wondered about V’s odd sleeping position. From the first-person perspective we see V flop down in such a way as to suggest half their body hangs off the bed – sideways.

This has become something of a meme within the Cyberpunk community, with various sketches from players who imagined what V looks like when asleep going viral.

Redditor jk47_99 used Cyberpunk 2077’s recently-released third-person view mod to see V’s full getting into and out of bed animation – and, yeah, it’s pretty annoying.

Thanks to the 3rd person view mod, the greatest mystery of the game has been solved from r/cyberpunkgame

As a parent of two young children who sometimes wake up in the night, I can relate to anyone who’s forced to sleep half-on, half-off a bed. But V doesn’t have that problem. V has a lovely-looking bed all to themselves and they don’t even bother to get under the covers and lie down straight. Everything needed for a good night’s sleep is right there, V. Why do you have to just flop arseways on your bed – on top of the covers and with your legs hanging off?!

The whole thing gets more head-scratching when you consider V sleeps normally in other beds in the game, for example those used for sex. It’s like there’s something different about the bed in V’s apartment. Something… strange.

Sleeping is, ultimately, an unnecessary part of Cyberpunk 2077. Apart from a few moments where the game’s story forces you to sleep, you never have to. Your apartment, unfortunately, is just as unnecessary. There’s no real need to go there, ever. V doesn’t ever get tired, so there’s no need for her to own a bed. If you prefer to play at a certain time of day, or need to for a certain quest, you can skip time from the options screen with no penalty.

But every now and then I go back to V’s apartment to sleep. I’m not sure why! And ever time I do, I shake my head at how V does it.
