All Lifepaths and Best Lifepath to Choose

All Quest Types

Main Quests

These are the primary Quests players will be taking on as part of the story. In order to see how the story of V and Johnny Silverhand unfolds, players will need to progress through Main Quests.

All Main Quest Guides

Side Quests

These Quests are available to V separately from the main story. Side Quests are not required to complete, but will provide bonuses and loot for V should the player choose to accept them. Despite their name, Side Quests are essential to the soul of Cyberpunk 2077, and you'll need to complete these as well to truly finish the game.

All Side Quest Guides


These Jobs are given to V by Fixers in a local area who need a Merc, sometimes to solve a crime... sometimes to commit a new one. Smaller than Side Quests, but still filled with original content for players to enjoy.

All Gig Guides

NCPD Scanner Hustles

These are small missions sent from the Night City Police Department to take down some thugs in exchange for rewards and occasionally rare items.
