A Cyberpunk 2077 fan perfectly recreates the MaxTac armor from the game


A Cyberpunk 2077 fan has perfectly recreated the armor worn by the game’s trauma team, dystopian gun-toting paramedics, and even a working face mask.

The Props It Yourself costume and prop creator shared a video of the outfit below on his Instagram, showing someone wearing a full trauma team cosplay. The futuristic mask begins to open before folding, sealing and activating the lights as the cosplayer walks forward.

Those who have only played a few hours of Cyberpunk 2077 will recognize the Trauma Team outfit from its appearance in one of the game’s opening missions, The Rescue. Hero V is tasked with rescuing a kidnap victim who turns out to be unresponsive, and Team Trauma, ready to single-handedly kill any threat to the victim, shows up to save him at the end.

Those who remember the part-iconic, part-infamous Cyberpunk 2077 E3 2018 showcase will also recognize the outfit when this mission debuted there. The Trauma Team cosplay proved particularly popular in Cyberpunk 2077 Reddit, where it currently has 28,000 upvotes and hundreds of comments. “This is so damn cool,” one user said. “The way I gasped when I saw the helmet snap on,” said another.

This type of community-generated content is one way fans will be able to interact with Cyberpunk 2077 while waiting for its sequel, codenamed Orion, from developer CD Projekt Red. In May, the studio revealed that it no longer had a dedicated Cyberpunk 2077 team as it was now focusing on future projects.

That doesn’t mean it won’t receive any support in the future, however, as CD Projekt confirmed to IGN that Cyberpunk 2077 will still receive long-promised FidelityFX Super Resolution 3 (FSR3) support at some point.

Work on the game was suspended after the release of the first and only expansion, Phantom Liberty, in September 2023. This release followed the game-changing 2.0 update, which completely overhauled Cyberpunk 2077 with features such as a up-to-date bonus system and improved AI, and was followed by another major update in 2.1, but only minor changes thereafter.

In our September 10 review, IGN stated: “Cyberpunk 2077 throws you into a beautiful, dense cityscape and offers astonishing flexibility in how you choose to use it from there.”
