Phantom Liberty Endings Turning Points

During the whole DLC, players interact with three important NPCs in this game, and decisions regarding them, affect the Endings. These Npcs are Songbird, Solomon Reed, and President Rosalind Myers. Players have to decide where their allegiances are in order to reach different endings.

The first turning point comes during Firestarter, when both V and Songbird are interacting with the matrix. Players have to decide between Helping Songbird, or Helping Reed capture Songbird. Depending on the decision, some endings will be locked out.

  • By deciding to help Songbird, The Killing Moon main mission unlocks. Players will be able to reach the King of Wands and King of Swords endings, which awards those two trophies when reached. The latter will help you reach The Tower
  • By choosing to help Solomon Reed, Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos main mission unlocks players will be able to reach the King of Cups and King of Pentacles endings, which awards those two trophies when reached. 

During The Killing Moon and Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos, players will also have to choose between two options, that will eventually determine which ending they will get.

The Killing Moon

When players have to wake Songbird they can decide between:

  1. Don't give Songbird to Solomon Reed, leading you to a confrontation with him. This leads to the King of Wands ending.
  2. Strike a deal with Solomon Reed, and give Songbird to him. This leads to the King of Swords ending, and may lead to The Tower.
Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos

When interacting with Songbird in the core, players have to decide between:

  • Fulfil Songbird's wish and killing her. This leads to the King of Cups ending
  • Deny Songbird's wish and do not kill her. This leads to the King of Pentacles ending.

Can I get all the endings in one playthrough in Phantom Liberty?

Players won't be able to get all the four endings in a single playthrough, but they can manage to watch all of them using manual saves. 

  • The first point in which players should make a manual save, is during Firestarter, before deciding what to do while interacting with the matrix.
  • The second point in which players should make a manual save is, if you are playing The Killing Moon, before deciding to deliver Songbird or not. On the other hand, if you are playing Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos, the manual save should be done before deciding to kill Songbird or don't fulfil her wish.

King of Cups

As you reach the core, interact with Songbird. She will ask you to be killed, for she doesn't want to return to the FIA. Do it by selecting the "Kill So Mi | Ok, I'll Do it" option. Solomon Reed arrives, and laments being late. 

Afterwards, boh Solomon and you take Songbird's body to a meeting point. Leave her on a stretcher and she is taken out. The President Rosalind Myers arrives and talks briefly with you. Stating how you made the wrong decision, and since you breached your part of the deal (Bringing Songbird alive), she doesn't have to fulfil hers, leaving you with  Johnny Silverhand and the Relic still in your head. She, however, transfers 5000 eurodollars to you.

Solomon Reed and you sit on the ground and talk about the situation and Songbird's passing. On the next scene, you are in your aparment and have a final conversation with Johnny Silverhand

King of Wands

As you take Songbird to the shuttle, Solomon Reed will cross paths with you. Start a conversation with him. Select the first option ("Lay Songbird down | Easy now"), then select "Can't let you take her" and "Draw Weapon | I'm sorry man".  Kill Solomon Reed, you can loot his Iconic Tech Pistol called Pariah. Take Songbird to the shuttle, and prepare her to head to the moon.

Watch her launch into space, as Johnny Silverhand strikes conversation. 

King of Swords

During the conversation with Solomon Reed, he will ask your price for Songbird. Respond with the following options "Wanna live on", "Deal". Then pick her up, and as Solomon emerges from the shuttle, select "Lay Songbird down | Song's a traitor". Solomon will take her to a new shuttle that emerges and finally tell him "Take good care of her".  

King of Pentacles

king of pentacles endings phantom liberty wiki guide 300px 



As you reach the core, interact with Songbird. She will ask you to be killed, for she doesn't want to return to the FIA. Try to convince her by stating ""Ain't over yet", "That's not a solution!" and finally "Won't do it". Solomon Reed arrives and the next scene you are both driving her to a meeting point. As you arrive to the meeting point, pick her up from the car, and leave her on the stretcher. Meanwhile, a new shuttle will arrive, with President Rosalind Myers inside. 

The president congratules you for your service and awards you a medal, stating that she may need again someday in the future. Then boards the shuttle again and leaves. You have a small conversation with Solomon Reed about Songbird, and he promises to get in touch 

Finnally, a conversation with Johnny Silverhand takes place in your apartment after you leave Solomon. 

The Tower

the tower ending phantom liberty wiki guide 300px 



  • During Firestarter select the Help Songbird, leading you to The Killing Moon
  • During The Killing Moon select the following dialogue options: Call Reed > Wanna live on > Deal > Pick up Songbird > Lay Songbird Down > Take Good Care of Her
  • Complete Through Pain to Heaven amd Who Wants to Live Forever

When you reach Misty's Esoterica's roof, Johnny will start a conversation. Johnny will realize that he will be wiped out, something that he wasn't hoping to happen. Get in touch with Solomon Reed, he will tell you that the rehab after perfoming the procedure could take several weeks. He also informs you that you should message all your close friends that you will be out of town. 

FIA agents arrive, enter the AV. After another conversation with Johnny Silverhand, the procedure takes place. Solomon Reed wakes you after the procedure and tells you that your nervous system can't take anymore chrome, so your life as a merc is gone. It also tells you that you were out for two years.  V decides to call his friends to learn about their current situation. Leave the clinic to meet Viktor, who is the only one available to finally meet you.

A Delamain car will take you there. Viktor is working now for Zetatech. He scans you but there is nothing to do about your problem with Cyberware. As you leave the clinic, you are assaulted. Misty finds you on the ground after the beating. During the conversation with her, you realize you can become a fixer, or do something else. Simply start anew, this time without Johnny Silverhand in your head

She gets on a car and leaves Night City, and as the camera shot opens, V gets lost in the crowd, ready to start a new life.

Important Notes

Most choices throughout Cyberpunk 2077 do not have an impact on the ending the player can receive; however, like The Witcher 3, some endings are locked behind the player character's relationship with key NPCs, in this case Johnny Silverhand, Rogue and Panam Palmer. Also, your chosen Life Path and the gender of V will not pose an impact on the ending.

Since we just mentioned that the dialogue options you choose during your playthrough only implies a small impact, there are just two things that you want to look out for so that you can unlock additional dialogue options during the final job, which will allow you to open up additional endings. We will be listing those important sequences on this page.

end credits one more gig option endings cyberpunk 2077 wiki guide

Additionally, if you want to save a lot of time from going through the whole game again and you just want to start off at the last checkpoint you've saved (most likely before the final job), you can do so. Players can either create a manual save before Misty takes you to the balcony where you speak to Johnny. Or just load the game and pick up where you left off at the last checkpoint. Once you've finished the game and after the credits roll, a "Thank You For Playing" message will appear, simply just choose the 'Sure, just one more gig' option so that you can reload the last saved checkpoint.

Important NPCs

As mentioned, there are two sequences or NPCs in the game that we recommend that you spend your time in completing their line of Side Jobs, and these NPCs are Panam Palmer and Rogue.


rogue npc cyberpunk 2077 wiki guide

  • In order for you to unlock a dialogue option that leads to the "Path of Glory" epilogue, you need to create an alliance with Rogue, and by doing that, you have to complete her Side Jobs. Completing the last job related to Rogue will also result in a Romance, click here to learn more about it.
  • Rogue only has two Side Jobs. Chippin' In is automatically unlocked through story progression and Blistering Love becomes available after completing Chippin' In and if you call her to take her out on a date.

Panam Palmer

panam palmer npc cyberpunk 2077 wiki guide

  • If you want to obtain the choice of the possibility of acquiring the "All Along the Watchtower" and/or "New Dawn Fades" epilogue, you need to forge an alliance with Panam Palmer. Creating an alliance with Panam also results in an alliance with the Aldecaldos gang. You can find a guide on how to forge an alliance with her and end up with a Romance sequence by clicking here, or by checking out the Romance page.


Cyberpunk 2077 Endings



  • Choose the dialogue option: “Think trusting Arasaka’s risky but worth it”.
  • Take the Omega-Blockers (Pills).
  • Finish Where Is My Mind?.
  • Choose between joining the program or rejecting the offer.

For this epilogue, there are two sub-endings that you can achieve depending on the choice you make when you're near the end. So first off, during the final Main Job, Nocturne Op55N1, when Misty takes you to the rooftop balcony and you talk to Johnny Silverhand, choose the dialogue option “Think trusting Arasaka’s risky but worth it” and then [Take Omega-Blockers]. This will result in completing the following missions that will lead to this ending: Last Caress, Totalimmortal, and Where Is My Mind?.

During the Where Is My Mind? job, V will end up at a space station where doctors have done procedures on him/her. Now, as you continue your progression, at some point, Takemura or Hellman checks up on you and gives V a contract, this is where you will have to choose V's fate. First, if you choose “[Sign Contract] I want to live”, V joins the Secure Your Soul program and Arasaka basically creates an engram of V's mind and puts it in "storage" until they find a compatible body. And if you select “[Refuse to Sign] I’m going back to Earth”, V prepares his journey back to Earth. Either way, V still dies, he either loses his consciousness not knowing if he will ever find a compatible body or he dies normally back on Earth from his injuries - these two sub-endings just presents two different scenes that are worth experiencing.




  • Complete Panam's Side Jobs.
  • Choose Dialogue Option: “Gonna ask Panam for help”.
  • Take the Omega-Blockers (Pills).
  • Inside Mikoshi, enter the well to return to V's body.
  • Finish All Along the Watchtower.

For this epilogue, the important sequence you must complete in order for the dialogue option to become available is to complete Panam's Side Jobs. Click here, or check out the Romance page to learn more about her side jobs and how to forge an alliance with her/the Aldecaldos. During the final Main JobNocturne Op55N1, when Misty takes you to the rooftop balcony and you talk to Johnny Silverhand, choose the dialogue option “Gonna ask Panam for help” and then [Take Omega-Blockers]. This will result in completing the following missions that will lead to this ending: We Gotta Live Together, Forward to DeathBelly of the Beast, and All Along the Watchtower.

During the Belly of the Beast job, after you've defeated Adam Smasher, you'll enter Mikoshi where Alt and Johnny talk to V. When you get to choose a dialogue option, select “Wanna live out whatever life I got left“, approach the well, and then choose [Enter well and return to body]. This triggers the epilogue for All Along the Watchtower. Basically, Johnny will remain in cyberspace, and V leaves Night City with Panam with the rest of the Nomads.

NOTE - if you want extra romance scenes with your romance of choice, make sure you have called that person in previous Mission Nocturne Op55N1 when you get a chance to call before deciding to reach out to Panam for help. If you do not call the person you romanced, they will not appear in the epilogue.




  • Complete Panam or Rogue's Side Jobs.
  • Choose Dialogue Option: “Gonna ask Panam for help” or “Think you and Rogue should go”.
  • Take the Omega-Blockers (Panam route) or pseudoendotrizine (Rogue route)
  • Inside Mikoshi, cross the bridge as V (Panam route) or enter the well as Johnny (Rogue route).
  • Finish New Dawn Fades.

For this epilogue, it doesn't matter if you complete Panam or Rogue's Side Jobs, what's important is the choice you make when you're inside Mikoshi depending on your chosen route or the cyberspace where you'll find Alt and Johnny. To obtain this ending, when you're inside Mikoshi, if you chose Panam then choose the dialogue option “Body’s Johnny’s. I’ll go“ and then just cross the bridge but, if you chose Rogue you need to complete For Whom The Bell Tolls and Knockin' On Heaven's Door, then enter the well as Johnny. This triggers the New Dawn Fades epilogue mission. This epilogue results in Johnny taking over V's body, while V remains in cyberspace.




  • Complete Rogue's Side Jobs.
  • Choose Dialogue Option: “Think you and Rogue should go”.
  • Take pseudoendotrizine (Pills).
  • Inside Mikoshi, cross the bridge as Johnny.
  • Finish Path of Glory.

For the Path of Glory epilogue, the important sequence you must complete in order for the dialogue option to become available is to complete Rogue's Side Jobs. Click here, or check out the Romance page to learn more about her side jobs and how to forge an alliance with her. During the final Main JobNocturne Op55N1, when Misty takes you to the rooftop balcony and you talk to Johnny Silverhand, choose the dialogue option “Think you and Rogue should go”.

During the Knockin' On Heaven's Door job, you'll (again) find yourself in Mikoshi (Cyberspace) only this time, as Johnny. Basically, when you're given the dialogue options, you have to make it sound like you're not agreeing to V being stuck in Cyberspace. At some point, you have to choose the dialogue "Goin' with Alt, you live on." and just cross the bridge. V tries to stop Johnny and beats him, just go through and cross the bridge. This will result in V returning back to his body and Johnny remains in Cyberspace. V then awakens and you just need to complete the Path of Glory epilogue job to acquire this ending.


The Easy Way Out

easy way out ending cyberpunk 2077 wiki guide



  • Choose the first dialogue option available when Johnny lays out a plan, either ask for Panam's help, trust Arasaka, or ask him and Rogue to finish the job.
  • When Johnny asks if you're sure about it, choose the dialogue “Could also just put all this to rest”.
  • Followed by "[Toss pills] I know exactly what we're gonna do."

As the title says, "The Easy Way Out", it literally is the easiest way to end the game. During the final Main JobNocturne Op55N1, when Misty takes you to the rooftop balcony and you talk to Johnny Silverhand, choose the dialogue option that is available on how you proceed, either ask for Panam's help, trust Arasaka, or ask him and Rogue to finish the job. It doesn't matter here, just choose one.

When Johnny asks you if you're sure about the decision you picked, choose the dialogue “Could also just put all this to rest” and then "[Toss pills] I know exactly what we're gonna do.". You'll end up with an epilogue with Johnny telling V that it was a pleasure working with him/her. And as you know it, V commits suicide by shooting himself as the scene shifts over to the view of Night City.


(Don't Fear) The Reaper




  • Complete Tapeworm, a series of quests related to specific conversations you have with Johnny when following the main questline.
  • Choose the correct dialogue options when talking to Johnny at his "grave" during Chippin' In.
  • When talking to Johnny atop the roof during Nocturne Op55N1, do not proceed with any available options for storming Arasaka or suicide and wait silently for about 5 minutes instead. Johnny will takes V's silence into consideration and offer one more option.
  • Hear out Johnny's suicide run/plan.

Johnny will empathize with V not wanting to put more loved ones in harms way for their sake and says they should just grab their "hottest iron" , walk right in the front door of Arasaka tower, and carve their own path to Mikoshi. If  V agrees, the game will immediately cut to V entering Araska tower's front door where they are confronted by security, Johnny declares "Let's party like it's 2023" and the player will then engage in a gauntlet match of the toughest enemies Arasaka has to offer, including Adam Smasher. It is highly recommended the player prepares plenty of healing items, ammunition, best armor, and their highest damaging weapons as this is the toughest battle in the game and only two save points are offered despite dying resulting in a credit roll.

Once the player has successfully uploaded Alt and connected to Mikoshi, the ending of the game will proceed as it does in other endings where Alt tells V and Johnny only one can stay in V's body but the player will control V during this decision. Choosing Johnny results in the New Dawn Fades ending where as choosing V will result in the Path of Glory ending.

(Don't Fear) The Reaper is a secret ending of the game. But in order for this option to become available, you need to choose the following dialogue lines to answer Johnny at the oil fields during Chippin' In:

  • [Inscribe Johnny's initials]. Let's do something about that.
  • The Guy who Saved My Life.
  • Nah. ****** that up too.
  • What do you want from me?
  • OK. But as second chances go, this is your last.
  • You were a real **** in the beginning.
  • When you said you let down your friends...
  • Smasher biz really got to her.
  • Yeah. I'll call Rogue.

Once completed, the side quest, Blistering Love, will begin but you do not have to call Rogue or proceed with it as triggering the secret ending is only dependent of which dialogue options you choose at Johnny's grave. From here, you can proceed with your playthrough as you wish until you talk to Hanako again during Noctune Op55N1.

      Screw "Somewhat Damaged". What a shitty joke of an bootleg Alien Isolation in the game where you shoot/hack/slice-n-dice things till they die

        The Tower ending gives the story the best ending in my opinion for V. If you finished everyone's quest, you will get unique dialogue later (just don't expect much if you romanced Panam). While all the endings are...ok, the tower overall gives the game clarity and shows how much the characters have changed over the 2 year coma (I didn't finish Judy quest so don't know much about her dialogue).

        • Anonymous

          Isn't it kinda studip that in most endings V is going to die because "his own immune system considers him an intruder" while there are literally immune system cybernetics in the game? Like, can't he fully swap what remains of his biological immunity for some fully automated solution that would not be trying to kill him? Am I missing something here?

            Path of Glory has a news story playing as you're leaving the air transport. Easy to miss. Really important. It says 'for 700k/month, you can now prevent neuron degradation' or something like that. Basically, you can stop the body from rejecting the brain. Which is a nerdy way of saying 'its gonna cost you, but you can afford it, and you're going to live.' Now if you can just get Judy to come back, or go see her, you have a legendary space casino to rob, and a perfect ending. Not sure where else to drop this important info, but it REALLY needs to be seen, I think

              I unlocked the secret ending without selecting the dialogue "Smasher biz really got to her." That part really doesn't matter.

              • Anonymous

                It seams Path of Glory is slightly different depending if you go with Rogue or alone (she is either there in Afterlife or she is missing).

                    Think I might have found a new ending an ending where you get V's secret mansion no one can get to the way to get that ending is to ask Rogue and Johnny for help and to have Kerry eurodyne as a lover at the end it just spawned me in that mansion with Kerry

                        I'm working now for "All along the Watchtower" and need to finish the rest too.

                          Even with max level, OHKO guns and 5000+ armor (after cold blood, mods etc), you can get flatlined during Don't Fear The Reaper in seconds, especially in the final two rooms. Absolutely go for survival/second chance cyber-ware/perks before starting the ending sequence.

                                  Tbh I was kind of disappointed at the ending. I wish it was kind of like Fallout 4, where you could continue after you beat the game. I believe CDPR could've been a bit more creative. BUT! The ending is hella sad as well, and definitely got a few tears from me at the credits scene. The game was definitely worth playing, and I chose the "Just one more gig." option just so I can really enjoy Cyberpunk 2077 in all it's glory. This is Sdji, and I'll see you later chooms!

                                    We also need to write a clearer definition and solution in case V flatlined (even twice than the V's double heart cybernetics) in the suicide mission with Johnny Silverhand. Is it game over as V has to start over from the lifepath choice? This fact would be really helpful for anyone who wished to do this mission with him.

                                      We need a list of quests that affect the relationship with Johnny Silverhand. I got:

                                      90% Edgerunner
                                      60% You Only Live Once
                                      40% Down to the Wire

                                      Can't unlock the solo Ending. I heard that you need 70% You Only Live Once. But this is where that questlist comes in handy.

                                        It appears you need 50% "relationship" with Johnny to fulfill the Don't Fear the Reaper ending requirement. So Johnny's "Good side" is more of a 50/50.

                                          In the blaze of glory path you get to witness V and your love interest finally rich and at the top. But your love interest breaks up with you and it’s revealed V is still dying. Important left out details. It’s kinda cold and heartbreaking especially when the credits roll and Judy goes yea hope you figure it out. but possible DLC teased.
