        Is there anyone else that sells the Epic version after the update? Yeah, I punched Fingers. I swear it was just a love tap! That's all! He barely bled!

            Honestly, the epic jump height isn't even close to the rare version, it's like a baby mode ledge-grabber if you have trouble with that sort of this. It really is so obviously a downgrade (slow-moving, short af) that I'm not even going to try testing this combat liability, save your money and/or quit tripping that you charged story mode before you googled where your dream(nightmare) gear is.

              Compared with launch, the current (1.5) hover feels like it covers more distance. However, the rare version has a much greater jump height. Also, the epic version automatically jumps once you have enough charge which I personally found more intuitive. The rare version requires the jump key to be manually released to jump and I had trouble grabbing onto ledges with it.

                I get the whole consequence's mechanic if I punch a guy and I can no longer buy the items from him. Then now have to only find them by RNG random drop, I get that. But If you do something without knowing the consequences of something only come to find out that the ONLY specific item behind the ONLY guy who sells it gets completely gated to the point of cheating it in or creating a new game. Then that's complete sh**, this is a trash game that the DEVS only put 20% brain power into the coding of the game. I haven't even mentioned the amount of bugs and glitches this game shouldn't have but it sadly does.... If you notice, I am a year ahead in time of all these comments and this is still a BIG problem...

                  Should at least be able to loot the epic ankles out of Fingers' shop by taking some sort of key off his dead body to open, same price for installation at any other ripperdoc. And yes, I say dead body because let's be honest, if you find out he's the only guy with them giving him his just dinner of fist to face, he gets his just desserts, too.

                    Beating the **** out of Fingers is still more satisfying than the hover. the all-important high jump function is there in the rare version anyway.

                      The guy who installs faulty cyberware is the exclusive source of some high-tier implants. What. Why can I not just buy non-faulty cyberware from someone else? This isn't a matter of "consquences", it's a matter of shitty setting.

                        I shouldn't be punished for hitting the man, I mean I had no idea the punch would kill him, I just wanted to put him in his place

                          Kind of fucking dumb that the only ripperdoc in the entire game that sells you certain high level mods, is also the only one in the entire game that you fuck over as part of the main quest line.
                          Like, legit did nobody at CDPR think about this at all?

                            I cant get them to work consistently, they will occasionally but they seem buggy as hell to the point where they just dont work at most of the time

                              Epic version auto jumps after a half second or so. Can also be used mid fall with the same half second charge

                                Such a bad design choice to lock the epic rarity out if you punch fingers

                                but fuck it, i'd punch fingers again
                                actually, i'm gonna create a new save and go do that right now
