One of the most popular builds in Cyberpunk 2077 involves the use of a Sandevistan OS. This type of Cyberware slows time on command and can be combined with a melee build to create a devastatingly overpowered character. The Sandevistan, like any other Cyberware that must be manually activated, has a cooldown period. Installing Heatsinks is the most effective way to drastically reduce this cooldown period.
Items of Legendary rarity are extremely rare in Cyberpunk 2077, and they’ve become even rarer since patch 1.5 randomized all available loot. The Legendary variant of the Sandevistan Heatsink is not available for purchase. Obtaining one via random loot can be a tedious process. This is why we have you covered on how to acquire this rare item in this article.
Every Sandevistan build is going to be different. Some will focus on the slowdown effect and others on how frequently the ability can be used. Although this guide is intended for the former type of build, it can be useful to all Sandevistan users in the game. The Netflix series Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, in particular, has inspired many players to emulate David Martinez’s build. In the show, David can be seen using his Sandevistan ability on demand, without waiting for a cooldown.
While this is not technically possible in Cyberpunk 2077, you can drastically reduce the cooldown period to make the transition appear seamless. This is where the Legendary Heatsink Cyberware Mod comes in. Each installed Heatsink shortens the cooldown period by 4 seconds. When combined with the Legendary Bioconductor and a Qiant Sandevistan Mk.4, it can be reduced to just 2 seconds.
Where to find Sandevistan Heatsink Crafting Spec in Cyberpunk 2077
Unfortunately, no Ripperdoc in the game sells the Legendary Sandevistan Heatsink. The only vendor of a Heatsink is the Kabuki Slums Ripperdoc, and he exclusively offers the Uncommon variant. What you can get instead is the Crafting Spec for this Cyberware Mod from the Arroyo Ripperdoc. Here’s a video from MoveOverInc to help you figure out the location of his clinic.
You can buy the Crafting Spec for the Sandevistan Heatsink from this vendor for a mere €$1125. After obtaining it, you can craft one of these items from the Cyberware section of the Crafting menu.
How to craft a Legendary Sandevistan Heatsink in Cyberpunk 2077
The minimum rarity of the created Cyberware Mod will vary depending on the Crafting skill progression. You need a Crafting skill of 9 for unlocking Rare Crafting Specs, whereas Iconic rarity opens up on level 18. What this means is that you can only craft a Legendary Sandevistan Heatsink when your Crafting skill has reached level 18.
You also need to allot attribute points to Engineering and reach level 18. This is because every skill tree is limited to the level of its governing attribute. For example, if your Engineering attribute is at level 12, then you can’t progress beyond level 12 in your Crafting skill tree.
