Dialogue Options and Icons Guide

Dialogue Options.jpg

This is a guide to choosing between different dialogue options in Cyberpunk 2077. Learn what each of the different icons means in conversations, and which option you should choose for each case.

Dialogue Option Types

Dialogues in Cyberpunk 2077 are split between Yellow and Blue dialogue choices.

Yellow Options Blue Options

When you make a Yellow choice, the conversation will continue, and you won't be able to go back.

On the other hand, Blue choices simply provide extra information for the player's context. They have no effect on what happens and there is no objective merit to selecting them – they only serve to contribute to the worldbuilding.

As a result, all major choices in Cyberpunk 2077 will be decisions between multiple Yellow options.

Dialogue Icon Types

Sometimes, specific Icons will appear during a conversation next to one of the Dialogue Options.

Bonus Option Icons

These indicate that the option has a special bonus related to it, whether it be exclusive to a specific Lifepath, or will yield a special type of result.

Corpo Lifepath.jpgLifepath (Corpo) Indicates that this option is specific to your Lifepath. It can lead to conversation results not available to other Lifepaths, but is not necessarily always the best choice.
Get Item.jpgItem Indicates that you will receive an item.
Hacking Icon.jpgHack Indicates that you will complete a Hacking-related task.
Engineering Icon.jpgBuild Indicates that you will complete a task related to engineering or building.

Attribute Requirement Icons

These icons indicate that the player must have enough Points in one of the five Attributes to either give a specific answer in a dialogue, or complete a task in the world like opening a door, defusing a mine, etc.

Sufficient Attribute.jpgSufficient Attribute Indicates that you have enough Points in the related Attribute to complete a specific task.
Insufficient Attribute.jpgInsufficient Attribute Indicates that you do not have enough Points in the related Attribute to complete the task.

please show each of the conversation check icons. the ones for strength, cool, and tech are clear enough, but the others are vague.

There "Insufficient Attribute" appears at least once in the game inverted, where you can choose a specific option (sth. alike "I'm not good with tech") only if you have LESS than 5 points in the associated attribute; while there is a matching option for more than 5 point
