Cyberpunk 2077: 8 Best Plot Twists, Ranked

Did you expect these things to happen? Night City is full of excitement, violence, heartbreak, and total chaos. If chaos could ever be a physical group, Night City would be what it would look like in the real world. In Cyberpunk 2077, the player goes on a journey through the eyes of V, a mercenary from a background that the player picks. V’s life is hard in every way, especially since she met Johnny Silverhand, a famous rock star.

In true sci-fi style, Cyberpunk 2077 is full of mind-blowing themes about a cybernetic future and game-changing plot twists that will leave you staring at your screen.

Now that the game is much better, you should give it as much time as you can. The plot of this game by CD Projekt Red is a masterful example of the old “bait-and-switch” technique.

Saburo Arasaka’s faithful and loyal bodyguard is, in fact, a very important part of this whole situation. Takemura comes to find out what happened after V saw Takemura’s boss die, put the relic biochip in his own head, and died a horrible death at the hands of the gangster Dexter DeShawn.

As V starts to wake up in the trash dump where DeShawn left him and the biochip starts to restore his brain functions, he sees Takemura blow air into Deshawn’s head before taking V on a scary ride to get away from Arasaka’s killers. Takemura, who is probably an enemy because of what V did, teams up with V to get revenge for his old boss, who must have been more to Takemura than just his boss.

Before Cyberpunk 2077 came out, everyone knew that Keanu Reeves would play a rock star named Johnny Silverhand in the game. We didn’t know that Johnny wasn’t just a musician who didn’t like the way things were done. In fact, he was thought to be a domestic terrorist.

In fact, one of his terrorist acts was to set off a tactical nuclear weapon in the middle of the city. He had something against Arasaka. They took Alt Cunningham, his lover and the person who made the Soulkiller program, and made her the first person to go through the digital prison. Johnny wanted to get her to wake up, and he would do anything to make it happen. Even if a bomb that did a lot of damage also hurt the city and possibly innocent people.

We find out quickly that Silverhand, played by Keanu Reeves, has been dead for a long time. Since the 1960s, worms have been eating his body. Adam Smasher caught him during one of Johnny’s attacks on Arasaka. The violent head of Arasaka security killed him, and Soulkiller put his consciousness into an engram biochip.

During a heist planned by Dexter DeShawn, V is supposed to steal this biochip, which is a piece of history. At the time of the heist, neither V nor you, the player, know what’s on that biochip. After V gets shot in the head and survives because of the chip, Johnny starts to show up in his head. At first, V’s relationship with Johnny is mostly negative, and the former rock star tries to get V to do something. It comes as a shock to find out that Johnny will be with us the whole time on this trip.

The only people who saw the murder were V and Jackie. It’s a pretty shocking moment, given how important Saburo is in Night City. Because of his cybernetic changes, he looks like he is 158 years old. Yes, he was a fighter pilot during World War II. After Soulkiller was made, he got into a fight with Johnny Silverhand. But in the first part of the game, his own son gets rid of him.

Johnny Silverhand is a rebel at heart, and Alt Cunningham is the spark that keeps him going. In fact, she is the main reason he became an activist and went so far as to blow up a nuclear bomb in the city of Arasaka to get his point across. Alt was a well-known netrunner in Night City in the past. She later made Soulkiller, and Arasaka put her in prison until she made it again for them.

Then, they used Soulkiller on Alt to kill her as a jab at Johnny Silverhand for trying to free his lover and being a pain in their side. Her mind turned into an engram and ran away into the net. Over time, her mind stopped acting like a person and started acting like what it really is: an AI. Alt Cunningham died, and her mind was used to create a powerful artificial intelligence in cyberspace.

From the start, V has to fight to stay alive. After the biochip brought V back to life, they found out that Johnny’s engram is slowly taking over. In a few weeks, V will be gone. Throughout Cyberpunk 2077 game, V’s main goal is to find a way to separate Johnny from their mind so that V can keep living.

In the end, though, we find out that V’s outlook isn’t very good. Even though there are many ways to get Johnny’s engram out of V’s brain, the biochip has caused a lot of damage. In fact, it has done so much that V doesn’t have much time left before the end of the game. That is, if V wants to keep living for the rest of the time they have. This makes it hard to predict what will happen next in a growing series.

Jackie Dies

The beginning of Cyberpunk 2077 has a lot going on. In fact, you’ll probably need a few hours to finish it. You’ll probably blink in disbelief when it’s over and the Cyberpunk 2077 title appears on the screen, signaling the start of the main part of the Cyberpunk 2077 game. That means there’s a lot of time to get to know Jackie Welles, even though he only lives a short time compared to the rest of Slope Game.

V trusts and talks to Jackie Welles. The two end up making a living in Night City the best way they know how, which is by taking part in some of the city’s more shady activities. But no matter what, they are friends and look out for each other. That makes it even sadder that Jackie dies from a wound she got while running away at Arasaka. V looks into his friend’s dead eyes right after his friend gives him the relic. It’s sad and shocking.

Dexter DeSahwn Shoots And Kills V

Dexter DeSahwn Shoots And Kills V

This is likely the most shocking part of the whole story. Dexter DeShawn, the gangster with whom V and Jackie planned to steal Arasaka’s relic, doesn’t seem to like the fact that the whole plan failed. Even if the two got the relic, V is now a target for Arasaka’s killers when they come looking for what is theirs.

By putting V down, DeShawn makes sure he won’t talk. From the player’s point of view, it’s hard to believe that DeShawn will actually kill V. In your mind, you’re probably picturing something scary stopping DeShawn from killing V. No dice. DeShawn does pull the trigger, and V does die from a gunshot wound to the head. No one thought that the biochip would fix V’s brain functions and bring him back to life.
