Knockin' On Heaven's Door Choices and Best Choice

Option 1 - Cross the Bridge

This option will put you on the path to getting the Sun Ending and Trophy, returning you to the real world

Option 2 - Return to V's Body

This option will put you on the path to getting the Temperance Ending and Trophy, having Johnny take V's body so he can live on in their place.

Best Choice

Either option is fine depending on how you feel about it. If you're looking to get all the Trophies, you'll end up having to view both anyways.

How to Beat Adam Smasher

Use Hacks

Adam Smasher will start out at 80% HP in this route and you'll have Weyland along as well. He hits hard and his HP doesn't go down super quickly so if you have strong Eletrical quickhacks make use of them to take him down faster. At around 50% HP some snipers will appear in the upper areas of the room so take them out and keep after Smasher. As he gets weaker his movements will get slower but he'll start launching missiles at you. Once he falls over you can easily get in a few shots that can finish him for good.
