In-Game Description

Panam is a nomad - although, maybe "ex-nomad" rings truer these days. She locked horns with the family's leader, Saul, left Aldecaldo nation and moved to Night City to try her luck as a merc. Panam's life is at a crossroads - on one hand she knows her life needs a change, it's now or never. On the other hand, burning bridges with the nomad family where all her friends are might have been a bit drastic, On top of that, Night City doesn't take too kindly to nomads or have patience for people like Panam who are internally conflicted and dream of a brighter future.

As you two relax and get cozy, you have the option to make a move on her by touching her thigh. She'll reject you for now, but this is to be able to romance her later on.
With A Little Help From My Friends
Tell Her "I Missed You"
When you talk with her by the window after slotting the punch card in, you can start the conversation off by telling her you missed her.
Touch Her Hand and Tell Her To Try Following Her Impulses
After telling her you missed her, she'll talk about how she's impulsive, except when with you. You can encourage her to follow that impulse. She references this down the line, so this may be pivotal.
Scooch Up To Her By The Fire
Once you finish the conversation in the tower, you'll head down to find a fire started by the nomads. After telling Panam you'll get some shut-eye, you can choose to scooch closer and put your arm around her as you watch the stars.
Queen Of The Highway
Say The Basilisk is Cozy
Once you enter the Basilisk, you can say one of three things. Make sure to mention that it's cozy.
Let Panam Touch Your Thigh
When you finish taking shooting the wrecks with the Basilisk, Panam will hook in, referencing what you should've said about impulses in With A Little Help From My Friends. There will then be the dialogue option to let her touch your thigh. This will initiate the romance scene between you and her.
Kiss Her Goodbye Before leaving, you can kiss Panam goodbye and tell her thanks for everything. This is the last romantic action you can take with Panam.

Does Panam Affect the Ending?

Yes, but Romance not required

The Star Ending.jpg

The player's relationship with Panam has a siginificant impact on the ending of the game if the player wants to achieve The Star Ending.

During the conversation with Johnny in Nocturne OP55N1, if the player has completed all the Panam Side Quests, they can select the Gonna ask Panam for help option, which is necessary for The Star Ending.

It's not required to romance Panam to achieve it, so characters of both genders simply need to complete Panam's Side Quests to achieve this ending.

    • In the crafting screen, would love to see a comparison between what I'm currently equipped with vs what I've selected to craft. In the Inventory screen, I have no idea where any extra weight is without going into each category (weapons, clothes, etc). Please add some sort of weight indicator next to each category so I know exactly where I seem to be overloaded. In the Map, please mark completed items (assault in progress, access points), grey out the icons or something similar?

    • >>[1021 I experienced the same bug on pc with patch 1.3. Iris would follow the van everywhere but never get in. Finally I tried driving the van into the junk yard in front of the building where you first find her. Got out of the van walked to the garage where it was previously parked, then walked back to the van. This time when I entered the van driver side, she entered on the passenger side. Was able to complete the the gig.
