2. No-Intro Videos

Another great mod you can add to RoboCop: Rogue City is the No-Intro Videos mod, which speeds up game launch times by bypassing startup cutscenes and introduction videos.

Suppose you’re just starting your first playthrough of RoboCop: Rogue City. In that case, we strongly suggest watching all the cutscenes and intro videos since the short cutscenes are essential for the game’s storytelling. The intro videos before missions are also worth watching so you can get the necessary context on the mission at hand.

If you’ve already finished RoboCop: Rogue City once, installing the No-Intro Videos mod will help you greatly speed up your next playthrough and allow you to jump into the action instantly.

3. Robocop Has No Recoil

With the quality-of-life mods out of the way, let’s turn to some gameplay mods. What better way to kick off your Robocop modding spree than with a weapon mod?

As the name suggests, the Robocop Has No Recoil mod removes recoil when firing guns in RoboCop: Rogue City. More specifically, the mod removes the recoil and bullet spread from firing the Auto 9 and AKM, transforming the insane Robocop into an indestructible and infallible killing machine.

Robocop Has No Recoil should make for a very interesting replay. The mod essentially turns RoboCop into the perfect point-and-shoot enforcer of justice. Combined with the Auto 9’s fire rate and firepower, you’ll be raining bullets on those Detroit thugs like nobody’s business.

4. Auto 9 Movie Sound

RoboCop isn’t RoboCop without the Auto 9, and through RoboCop: Rogue City, you finally get to see and feel what it’s like to hold and fire the iconic automatic pistol. But while more casual gamers won’t care, die-hard RoboCop will want to make the Auto 9 sound similar to the movies.

Don’t get us wrong, the Auto 9’s firing sound in RoboCop: Rogue City isn’t bad – it’s perfect. Every shot has a ton of low-end, making each trigger pull feel heavy and impactful. It sounds quite different from Auto 9 in the movies, as the original Auto 9 sounds give out a thinner, more hollow sound.

With that said, if you’re one of those die-hard fans looking to make the Auto 9 sound as you remember it in the movies, a simple mod called the Auto 9 Movie Sound will swap out the default Auto 9 sounds with the movie sounds, so you can wallow in nostalgia while firing the Auto 9.

5. Movie Accurate Auto 9 Twirl and Holstering Sound

Also from Modder JetstreemDan is the Movie Accurate Auto 9 Twirl and Holstering Sound mod. As the mod’s name suggests, this mod replaces the default twirling and holstering sound for the Auto 9 in-game to make it sound closer to the movies.

It’s also worth mentioning how the Twirl and Holstering Sound mod nicely complement the Auto 9 Movie Sound mod, and having both mods installed should give you a more movie-accurate sound experience while playing RoboCop: Rogue City.

Mods for RoboCop: Rogue City not only changes the game’s look and feel but can also bring much-needed performance improvements to help make the game feel smoother.
