Cyberpunk 2077‘s finales
Let’s discuss everything you need to know about Cyberpunk 2077‘s endings and epilogues.
The point of no return
After completing several main quests in Cyberpunk 2077, you’ll eventually get a mission called “Nocturne OP55N1.” This tasks you with going to the Embers bar to meet Hanako Arasaka. It’s also the game’s “point of no return.”
Make sure you have a save file before you enter Embers. Once you go inside, you’re locked out of all sidequests until you complete the main objectives for a particular ending branch you’d select.
Your romance partner
V will have a chance to call the character you romanced during Cyberpunk 2077‘s campaign. It’s just a short lovey-dovey moment that tells you what’s at stake.
The character you romanced will also play a role in certain epilogues. Likewise, they might have a special message for you during the end credits.
The main choices
You’ll be chatting with Hanako Arasaka and Johnny Silverhand will be reacting. Then, V’s relic goes haywire and she ends up in Vic the Ripperdoc’s joint. From here, Misty will escort you to the rooftop and she’ll ask you to sit with her.
It’s imperative that you save your game (using a different slot, of course) before you sit down with Misty.
Sitting down with her leads to some dialogue and, eventually, Johnny will tell you to make a decision on how to finish Cyberpunk 2077‘s storyline:
- “Think trusting Arasaka’s risky but worth it” – This option is always available since it leads to the default ending branch. It has you trusting Hanako Arasaka and her plan.
- “Gonna ask Panam for help” – This will only be available if you completed Panam Palmer’s sidequests. You don’t need to have successfully romanced her. Anyway, you’ll be completing the finale with the help of the Nomads.
- “Think you and Rogue should go” – This will only be available if you completed Rogue Amendiares’ sidequests. You’ll finish Cyberpunk 2077 with the help of Rogue.
- “Could also just put it all to rest” – This will appear once you click any of the three options since it implies V’s having a change of mind. This leads to a depressing end for V.
- “Let’s hear this plan” – This will only appear if you have a 70% relationship rating with Johnny and you stay idle for roughly five minutes. This leads to Cyberpunk 2077‘s secret ending.
Note: If you select a particular reply, there may be another dialogue option that lets you change your mind. For instance, if you select “Gonna ask Panam for help,” you’re presented with “Call Panam” or “Call Hanako.” Choose Panam to proceed with the ending branch where she helps you out since calling Hanako leads to the default ending path.
Important decisions, key differences, and end credits
All of Cyberpunk 2077‘s finales play out differently. Furthermore, barring the “bad ending,” there will be another important decision to make towards the end of the mission. This will lead to a particular epilogue, capping off V’s and Johnny’s storylines.
Depending on the ending and epilogue you get, the characters you’ve met throughout your journey would have unique messages for V during the end credits. Also, try to pay attention to Misty’s tarot readings once you head down from the rooftop and during the end credits. Although the scenes and conversations with other characters tell you of V’s fate, her tarot cards also offer some insight.
Note: Assuming you saved Goro Takemura and you decided to side with Panam or Rogue (and not Hanako), his end credits message will be his “death poem.”
Anyway, let’s talk about the rewards you’ll get from Cyberpunk 2077‘s endings.
