Cosplayer NitsVetov channels his inner rebel rockstar and becomes the spitting image of Johnny Silverhand in a stunning Cyberpunk 2077 cosplay.
But Cyberpunk 2077 had a rocky start, the game has since taken off due to a number of major updates and changes. Fans continue to get lost in the neon-drenched cities and dark alleyways of the world, playing out their versions of an epic sci-fi journey.
As an action-RPG, Cyberpunk 2077 is home to a host of amazing characters that players can interact with. Fans adored Judy Alvarez, Panam Palmer and of course Keanu Reeves’ charismatic Johnny Silverhand. It’s largely thanks to these characters that the game’s conflicts have felt high and tangible stakes.
A Cyberpunk 2077 fan was so smitten with the characters in the game that they decided to pay homage to them in the most elegant form possible: cosplay. Decked out in dark leather and tattoos, cosplayer NitsVetov transforms into Cyberpunk Johnny Silverhand.
CYBERPUNK 2077 JOHNNY SILVERHAND COSPLAY BY U/NITSVETOV
A personality as loud and flamboyant as Johnny Silverhand’s can be intimidating to embrace, but cosplayer NitsVetov nailed this cosplay perfectly. Fitting perfectly into the character’s tough exterior (literally – look at that metal arm!), NitsVetov is just as brooding as Johnny.
Moreover, the bright neon glow adds a clear impression of high-tech aesthetics. The photo not only captures the attitude of the character, but also the attitude of the world. It’s an incredibly awesome cosplay that really transports the viewer into the game!
Johnny Silverhand, also known as Robert John Linder, is an influential musician in the world of Cyberpunk 2077. Not only the lead singer of ex-band Samurai, Johnny Silverhand is also a rebel, fighting against authority through musical revolts.
Along with his influence in the gaming world, Johnny Silverhand plays a particularly unique role in the game. Technically dead, his personality lives on in digitized form, sharing V’s body. As players continue through Cyberpunk 2077their decisions impact Johnny Silverhand’s future – whether he manages to find his own body, or stay with V.
Of course, the character has exploded in online communities due to the popularity of Keanu Reeves, the actor playing Johnny Silverhand in the game. As charismatic and tough as his character, Reeves has been praised by critics and fans alike for his performance.
