The Best Ending In Cyberpunk 2077 – How To Get It

Deutsch English

The FPS-RPG Cyberpunk 2077 confronts you with various decisions during the entire game time. However, only those in the final story quest are important. We tell you what to do to get the best ending.

Spoiler Warning! Based on the title, you should already have guessed that we will be talking about the end of Cyberpunk 2077 here. Nevertheless, we expressly warn against spoilers!

How to get the best ending in Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 has multiple endings where either Johnny survives in V’s body or V himself. However, most of the courses do not end well for V after the final. Only one of the ends seems to be an open happy ending.

That is the best ending: We are talking about the end that the success “The Star” brings with it. Less than 5% of the players on Steam have this achievement (as of December 23, 2020). In this end you leave Nightcity as V together with the nomads, the Aldecados and head towards Arizona. As a male V you continue your relationship with Panam and as a female V Judy also accompanies you.

You have to do the following things


Before starting the finale, your best bet is to complete the character quests with Panam and Judy and start relationships.

This is how it continues: After you have spoken to Hanako in the Embers and wake up at Vic the Ripper-Doc, you go to the roof of the building with Misty. There she leaves you alone and you start chatting with Johnny Silverhand.


During the course of the conversation, you will make one of three important decisions:

  • Fight the final Quest with Hanako and the help of Arasaka
  • Challenge the final Quest with the help of Panam
  • Leave your body to Johnny and fight the final Quest with Rouge

For the best ending, choose the Panam option and swallow the pill that suppresses Johnny.

Then Panam and the nomads of the Aldecaldos crew will invade the Arasaka Tower together with you, where you will ultimately meet Mikoshi, the prison of the soul with whose help you can free yourself from Johnny.


In the end, when you find yourself in cyberspace and talk to Johnny and Alt, you don’t cross the bridge, but get into the tub. This is how you wake up as V and experience the best ending.

Why is it the best ending in Cyberpunk 2077?

This is how it is: No matter what you decide in the final Quest, V is gone or suffers. All ends are kept open here, but suggest the death of the character. Only in the described end does Panam mention friends who might be able to help you. Together with your loved ones you leave Nightcity and look happily towards the sun.

Here, too, the ending is kept open, but Panam’s statement and the fact that you are not left alone give hope for a happy ending.

  1. I’ve played through all possible endings V DIES IN ALL OF THEM!!!
    Johnny and rogue 2 out comes V dies in both
    Panam 2 out comes V dies in both
    Path of least resistance V and Johnny die
    Don’t fear the reaper hardest ending, 2 out comes V dies
    Arasaka default ending you throw out your Loyalty to Johnny, Jackie, and misty 2 possible endings V dies or V becomes a construct (your body dies)
    This is mass effect 3 all over again. No matter what V does V dies. As far as this article goes the voice mails at the end of every ending is a indication V didn’t make it or V would have answered the call. Because during the play through V always answered a call even in combat. At the beginning Dex even alludes to this. Blaze of glory or boring and forgotten.

  2. I’ve gone through the ending as a street kid, male version of V. Was not too happy with the ending. Currently, I’m on my second playthrough with a female version of V with a corpo path. So far, this has been the most pleasurable playthrough. Not only is it rewarding helping Judy with her missions, but you feel a sense of relief, even though you’re still faced with (possible) doom in the end. Once through, I will attempt to choose the nomad path, with a male V, and then again, as a female V. I will let you know which path was the best for me.
