Useful Information (What you can/can't do with Johnny)

  • You will not be able to take out Johnny's weapon in safe locations, such as your house.
  • You can sleep in your apartment, and doing so will cause a headless copy of V to appear and sleep in your bed. Once he wakes, he will continue to stand in the location of your bed.
  • The weather system is enabled for heavy rain throughout the city that seemingly doesn't end.
  • Teleporting in world can be accomplished by using the latest build of Yamashi's CyberEngineTweaks console (
    • Teleport to V's apartment

    • tp = Game.GetTeleportationFacility()
    • tp:Teleport(Game.GetPlayer(),,1278,124,1),,0,0))
