List of Contents
In the Corpo Lifepath, V starts out as an agent under Arthur Jenkins - the head of Arasaka Counter-Intel in Night City. It can be deduced that you're higher up in the ranks within the Counter-Intelligence Division given Jenkins' trust in you to get the Abernathy job done.
As a corporate agent of Arasaka Counter-Intel, you know all the ins and outs when it comes to how corpos operate in Night City. Naturally, this includes both legal and illegal dealings since Arasaka's black ops division isn't known for shying away from necessary dirty work.
One of the most notable benefits of choosing the Corpo Lifepath is the choice to bypass security during the Gimme Danger main quest in Act 2, allowing you to waltz into the Arasaka warehouse without kicking up a fuss.
Instead of finding a sneaky way into the Arasaka facility, V can simply intimidate one of the guards to let them in, under the guise of performing an unscheduled inspection for Abernathy - Head of Arasaka's Special Operations in Night City.
By playing as a Corpo V, you will have a familiarity with corporate espionage. When faced with other corpo characters like Meredith Stout in The Pickup, you can stand toe-to-toe against her, easily seeing desperation underneath the intimidation.
You can also use these dirty corpo tricks yourself, manipulating or intimidating others to get what you want. While Corpo choices can make your character more antagonistic (like how you deal with the deck attendant in Konpeki Plaza), it does get the job done.
Unlike the other lifepaths, you are already friends with Jackie Welles at the start of the game if you chose the Corpo Lifepath. He will help you plan out your hit against Susan Abernathy before you get cut off from Arasaka at Lizzie's Bar.
Upon starting the game having chosen the Corpo lifepath, you'll find yourself in the Arasaka Corporation building with your unique prologue starting quest being the Corpo-Rat.
The Corpo-Rat Quest Walkthrough
The Corpo lifepath will give you advantages in the missions that take place in corporate and business settings. You'll be able to see the deception and tricks employed by other corporate characters, and will be able to manipulate others using the tricks that you have learned while climbing the corporate ladder.
The opposite holds true though; in the streets and slums of Night City, your character will have less experience and won't have choices that give them an advantage, unlike the other more grounded lifepaths.
Choosing Corpo will give you dirtier and more soulless choices compared to the other lifepaths. Your V has a history of doing whatever it takes to get what they want and not caring about who they hurt, which carries over to the choices of someone playing through the Corpo lifepath.
