God, was he jacked. I had never seen a specimen like him. How much of his original self remained? Hard to say. However, I must admit ... he put the 'sigh' back in cybernetic.
~ She Magazine, July 2111

Cybernetic Modules, or Cyber Modules, are a cybernetic currency in System Shock 2, used to upgrade the main character's rig with improved Stats, additional Psi Powers, Technical Skills, and Weapon Skills.

The Soldier receives these for completing objectives, however there are many more hidden in each deck on the Von Braun and UNN Rickenbacker as well as in the body of The Many.

The Soldier's ability to improve his skills and your physical and mental abilities in a short period of time is made possible by the training devices known as Upgrade Units, in conjunction with the cybernetic modules, which are small data packages containing programmable RNA databases in conjunction with impressionable brainwave patterns.

Locations

The max amount of obtainable cyber modules on easy/normal difficulty is 893 should you choose to take the naturally able O/S upgrade that nets you an additional 8 cyber modules. This upgrade is generally not recommended as you are only allowed 4 O/S upgrades and naturally able amounts to less than a 1% increase in cyber modules. Note that for some objective cyber module rewards, higher difficulties might give you none or less cyber modules. The following contains a list of the locations of all Cyber Modules that are found in game.

Command Deck

By this time reaching the Command Deck, the soldier would be maximizing his most of his skills and now begin to find himself with more Cyber Modules than what he might know what to do with, maxing out on all valued skills and specialties.

Objective Rewards

  • Gained access to main elevator: 20 Cyber Modules
  • Gained access to Von Braun Bridge: 20 Cyber Modules
  • Obtained Operations Override Card: 20 Cyber Modules
  • Activating damaged Shuttle Control Console: 20 Cyber Modules
  • Shuttle Bay 2 contains a body with 10 Cyber Modules but should you go in there, SHODAN ends up confiscating the 10 when you leave so you neither gain nor lose Cyber Modules. However, if you use the below trick to loot Delacroix's body in shuttle bay 2 you can circumvent this if you meet the requirements...
    • If you wish to obtain the 10 Cyber Modules on Delacroix's body without SHODAN confiscating them, spend all your cyber modules so that you have exactly 0 before you enter shuttle bay 2. Once you enter shuttle bay 2, dispose of the enemies and search/open Delacroix's body but DO NOT take the 10 cyber modules. Then exit the room and allow SHODAN's dialogue to end. SHODAN will be unable to remove any cyber modules when you exit the room as cyber module count cannot fall below 0. After the dialogue, you can return to the body and grab the 10 cyber modules without repercussions. Alternatively, if you have invested in the Tier 5 Psi power Instantaneous Quantum Relocation, you can simply teleport out of the room with SHODAN none the wiser.
  • When you are about to leave the Von Braun: 30 Cyber Modules
Total: 120
