I am wondering if I should get Reinforced Tendons (double jump) or the Fortified Ankles (power jump) and since they both are 45k I want to make an informed decision.

What is their respective benefits / downsides?

I assume the power jump is harder to control than a double jump. But does the power jump actually allow me to jump higher than the double jump? Are there certain regions that can only be accessed with a power or double jump or is it only a tradeoff between total height of the jump and its maneuverability?

For the most part, this is going to come down to taste, and how the separate mechanics feel to you in play. The Power Jump does allow for slightly more altitude and distance, but in terms of accessing areas, I haven't found anything where I'm meaningfully cut off from access yet. Meanwhile, the double jump does offer a bit more control and reactivity - you can time it well to, for example, minimize fall damage, and use it to move around corners a bit more readily as well.

If you're interested in exploring the games... glitchier side, there are some wall-hack style shenanigans and otherwise inaccessible areas that double jump will allow you to reach, but power jump won't, by exploiting the abilities interaction with time-slow cyberware like the Kerenzikov.

Basically, it all comes down to which method you feel more comfortable using. Alternately, money is really pretty plentiful in CP77; buy one, try it out for a while, when you've got some spare cash, buy and try the other, and know you can always switch back and forth at your friendly neighborhood ripperdoc at no further cost.

    Unfortunately you can't use Double-Jump to completely negate falling damage -- if you get into the terminal velocity animation, you lose the ability to trigger your double-jump. But for shorter distances, totally viable! Commented Dec 20, 2020 at 23:23
  • The minimize fall damage ability was the dealmaker for me to opt for the double jump.

  • @ravendreamer indeed. Hence, minimize, and not negate. Commented Dec 23, 2020 at 7:05
