How To Get Cyberpunk 2077’s Secret, Best Ending, 2022 Edition

As I think about what guides worth revisiting During what is essentially a second release of Cyberpunk 2077, I came across something in my own game that I had forgotten about for almost two years.

The secret ending of Cyberpunk 2077.

Cyberpunk 2077 has many different endings that revolve around Arasaka, Johnny, or the Mayors, or some combination of all of them. But though getting to certain endings is pretty obvious, ie. you can’t call Panam for help, you’ve never played his side stories, there’s an ending that absolutely, 100% can be classified as a secret, and it’s absurdly easy to miss because of how it was inserted into the game. And for some, it could be said that it is the better end, besides that.

CDPR hid this ending, in which Johnny volunteers to assault Arasaka alone, essentially behind a very, very specific conversation with him. This conversation is required to reach 70% synergy with Johnny, which you can track on the main character screen. Screw up this conversation and you’ll be stuck at 60%, which is how my first game went. There is no going back to fix it.

It doesn’t matter if you agree with Johnny every turn for the rest of the game, it’s all about this scene in a mission, starting with “Chippin’ In”, where Johnny takes over V and makes contact with the road. . which will eventually lead him to learn where Johnny’s body was dumped in the oil fields decades earlier.

Once you get to the Oil Fields, this is where this odd conversation starts to trigger the ending. The ending won’t start after this, there might still be a dozen or two hours left in your game, it just requires you to understand this part well for it to be an option later on.

Here are the exact conversation options you need to choose during this part:

  • [Inscribe Johnny’s Initials] “Let’s do something about it.”
  • “The guy who saved my life.”
  • “Nah, that fucked up too.”
  • “What do you want of me?”
  • “Okay. But when it comes to second chances, this is the last one.”
  • “You were a real jerk at first.”
  • “When you said you let your friends down…”
  • “The Smasher business really got her.”
  • “Yeah, I’ll call Rogue.”

So, you have to be nice, but don’t flatter him. also a lot, and yeah, I have no idea how anyone first found this out.

You’ll also need to finish the rest of what this questline leads to, which will eventually lead you to a Samurai reunion show that will reunite Johnny with his former bandmates and bring them closer to him and V. There’s really nothing special to do. you need to do here aside from doing the quest and playing the show, and after that you should be 70% and ready to meet Hanako in Embers.

Here is a final and complicated stage. Once you reach the Vic clinic rooftop above, where he is brainstorming his final plan, you must first choose the ending that allows Johnny to go with Rogue. So when there is an option to “put this to sleep” you need to do…nothing. You just have to sit there and wait a minute or two, and eventually Johnny will come up with the suicide execution mission himself. Y that is how do you activate it

Why is it the best ending? Well, it’s the only one where you won’t take extra kills from people coming with you, plus it has the most intense combat, which some may say makes it the best final option. Finally, it is not only hard, but if you die at any point, there is no replay, the game ends and you will get credits. So make sure you do a quick save before this all starts.

It’s a downright absurd process to get to this ending, incredibly easy to bypass, but that’s why this guide is here. I have managed to do it in my third play without messing anything up, so it’s been good, after two years of losing it.
