Cyberpunk 2077 Endings Guide – How to Get Them All

How to get the best ending and all the rest.

by Kyle Hanson , Drew Kopp

While the gameplay may sometimes feel more like action-adventure at times, Cyberpunk 2077 is still an RPG through and through. This is made clear when you reach the ending, which can play out in several ways depending on the choices you make throughout the game.

However, your early decisions have less impact than you might think. Although, with multiple endings to see, that might be a good thing since it means you can get them all off one save. And we’re here to show you how. This Cyberpunk 2077 endings guide shows you how to get each ending and what you must do to get it.

Cyberpunk 2077 Endings Guide

Before we break down the specifics of each ending and how to get it, let’s clear up a few questions that might have come up as you played through the game. Most of the choices you make throughout Cyberpunk 2077 don’t impact the ending you get or the fate of most of the characters.

You have quite a lot of agency in this world, but there are limits. So, let’s answer some of the critical questions before diving into spoiler territory. If you want to avoid spoilers, you can keep reading until we explain how to get all the endings in Cyberpunk 2077.

How Many Endings are there in Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 features five total endings, though only four are “official” and give the player a Trophy or Achievement. Some are pretty similar to each other, but there’s a wide variety of outcomes, so you will likely want to get them all at some point. Just be sure to save before the point of no return (see below), and you can return and redo the whole thing.

Does Lifepath Change the Ending

Nope. As crucial as your lifepath seems at the start of the game, it sort of fades into the background by the end. Sure, it changed some stuff along the way, but for the final mission and its outcome, you can choose whatever life path seems best to you and not worry about how it changes things by the end of the main story.

Does Who You Romance Change the Ending

Your choice of romantic partner does impact the ending, but only slightly. The ending isn’t changed based on who you have romanced, but it does change if you haven’t romanced anyone at all. More info is below, but you will want to have romanced someone if you wish to see all endings. You are given a choice of whether it comes into play, so just be sure you have romanced someone in the game before the end begins.

What is the Point of No Return, When to Save and Quit

To see all the endings listed below, a save file must be made before the point of no return. This is a mission called Nocturne Op55N1, with you going to Embers restaurant to meet Hanako. Before you enter the restaurant and continue this mission, you must create a save file and ensure you keep it protected.

There are ways to return here even if you miss this, but better to be safe than sorry. Reloading this will let you explore more, complete more missions, and eventually redo the final mission to get all the endings. So, let’s dive into what those endings are and how to get them all.

How to get all Endings in Cyberpunk 2077

Below are all five endings to Cyberpunk 2077 and the choices and conditions you need to meet to get them. As I said above, you can get all of the endings in Cyberpunk 2077 from the same save file, so be sure you’ve got that save ready before diving into this final mission. We will still try to avoid spoilers by not mentioning specifics if possible, so follow the guide as you play if you need to. The names of the endings are based on the Trophies and Achievements you unlock for getting them.

How to Get “The Devil” Ending

“The Devil” ending has you teaming up with Hanako and siding with Asukaga and Finch. This one doesn’t require much outside of completing the final mission and choosing to work with Hanako, so it’s one of the more accessible endings to get in Cyberpunk 2077. All you need to do is side with A&F for all dialogue during your meeting with Misty and Johnny. After that, continue through the final mission until you reach the end. There, you will be presented with one last choice of whether to return to Earth.

This doesn’t change the ending meaningfully, so pick whichever you prefer, then go back and choose the other if you want to see both finale cutscenes. Here’s a short step-by-step for how to get the Devil Ending in Cyberpunk 2077…

  • Choose to trust Arasaka
  • Take the Omega Blockers
  • Make the final choice about whether to return to Earth

Rewards: Johnny Tanktop and Johnny Aviators

How to Get “The Star” Ending

To get this ending, which has V leaving Night City thanks to the help of Panam, you need to complete her side quests to make it available. Those missions are Riders on the Storm, With a Little Help from my Friends, and Queen of the Highway. Ensure you have finished them before going beyond the point of no return if you wish to get the Star Ending in Cyberpunk 2077.

Once complete, all you need to do during the infinitely consequential discussion with Misty and Johnny is call Panam and ask for help. Later, you will enter the heavenly state and be given another choice. Just choose to go back into your body, and “The Star” ending will finish later. Here’s the step-by-step for how to get the Star Ending in Cyberpunk 2077…

  • Complete ‘Riders on the Storm’ mission
  • Complete ‘With a Little Help from my Friends’ mission
  • Complete ‘Queen of the Highway’ mission
  • Choose to Call Panam
  • Take the Omega Blockers
  • Return to your body

Rewards: Aldecaldos Rally Bolero Jacket

How to Get “The Sun” Ending

This ending is a mixture of happy and sad and requires you to have completed Rogue’s side missions. Those are Chippin’ In and Blistering Love. Ensure you’ve finished these, then head to the point of no return mission, and you’ll be given the choice of who to team up with. Pick Rogue and take the pseudoendotrizine to kick off the rest of the ending. Once you reach Cyberspace, all you need to do is choose to stay there with Alt. Here’s the step-by-step for how to get the Sun Ending in Cyberpunk 2077…

  • Complete ‘Chippin’ In’ mission
  • Complete ‘Blistering Love’ mission
  • Choose the “Think you and Rogue should go” dialogue option
  • Take Pseudoendotrizine
  • Choose to stay in Cyberspace

Rewards: Liberty PRIDE

How to Get the Temperance Ending

This one is a spinoff of the “The Star” ending. You’ll follow a similar path most of the way, but choose to let Johnny take over your body. The choices are all the same leading up to this, so just complete Panam’s missions, call her for help, and take the Omega Blockers, but when given the option to return to your body, choose not to. Here’s how to get the Temperance Ending in Cyberpunk 2077…

  • Complete ‘Riders on the Storm’ mission
  • Complete ‘With a Little Help from my Friends’ mission
  • Complete ‘Queen of the Highway’ mission
  • Choose to Call Panam
  • Take the Omega Blockers
  • Enter Cyberspace forever

Rewards: Nothing but inner peace and tranquility

How to Get the Secret Ending

This is a secret ending since there’s no Trophy or Achievement once you get it. And it’s kind of a downer, which makes a lot of sense for a universe as dark and dystopic as Cyberpunk 2077. In short, this ending sees V killing themself, and not much else happens since you’re dead. To do it, you don’t have to have any side missions completed, head to the point of no-return mission, and instead of taking the pills, toss them away. This will ultimately kill V, ending the game without much to show for it. Here’s how to get the secret (suicide) ending in Cyberpunk 2077…

  • Start ‘Nocturne Op55N1’ mission
  • Choose “Could also just put all this to rest” dialogue option
  • Toss the pills

Rewards: Death

And that’s our Cyberpunk 2077 endings guide showing you how to get them all. Concluding on a bit of a down note, but hopefully, you only choose that final, secret ending after seeing a few others. The rest all give interesting story pieces; even once you’re done with the main story, there’s still more to do.
