On this page of the Cyberpunk 2077 guide, you will find a walkthrough of The Corpo-Rat main quest. This is an introductory quest to the campaign for V with the Corp life path.
The consequences of choosing the main character's past are described in more detail on the page Character origin - does it matter?. The introductions for the Nomad and Streetkid life paths are on separate pages of our walkthrough.
- Talk to Jackie Welles
- Go to Jenkins' office
- Sit down and talk to Jenkins
- Read the report on your personal terminal
- Get to the AV garage
- Go into Lizzie's Bar
Talk to Jackie Welles
You start playing in the Arasaka Tower in the Corpo Plaza district of City Center – your character is vomiting in a public toilet.
You will receive information about a call from Jackie Welles. Press the answer button to pick up the phone.
Go to Jenkins' office
Get out of the bathroom and head towards Jenkins' office, V's superior. Get in the elevator. Jenkins will call you – press the answer button.
During this call, you have your first chance to select a time-limited dialogue option. If you don't choose that answer, V won't respond – this won't affect the further course of the quest.
After leaving the elevator, you can either have an optional conversation or head to the office immediately and pass through a scanner on the way.
Sit down and talk to Jenkins
When you get to Jenkins' office, sit in the chair, and wait for the meeting to end. During the conversation, you will learn about the problem you will have to solve.
Get the datashard from Jenkins. It contains all information about the target – Susan Abernathy. You also have to take the cash.
Read the report on your personal terminal
In addition to the new main objectives, you will also receive an optional goal to visit V's office. Go through the scanner again to return to the public office area. Carter will talk to you on the way – you can react however you want. Listen to another conversation with Jackie.
Go into V's office and sit down. You can:
- Look in the drawer, examine the Trauma Team Card and take a booster.
- Turn on the computer by touching the screen. Your objective is to check the file (Files tab). You can also read messages from your inbox.
Additionally, you can talk to Harry and give him advise.
Get to the AV garage
You have to go now to the aircraft garage. Enter Jenkins' flying machine – it will start moving to The Lizzie's Bar.
During the flight, you can check messages, have a drink, and talk with a Life Coach.
After landing, you will be stopped by a group of thugs. You have a small choice here - you can ignore them and not react with aggression or press the button to beat some of them in melee combat (this is done automatically). This is not an important decision and will not affect the further course of the quest.
Go into Lizzie's Bar
Head towards the entrance to the bar from the roof side. After talking to the bodyguard, you will be let in. Get to Jackie. Give him the datashard. You can optionally drink alcohol.
The final part of this task is linear. Arasaki agents will appear. You are fired from the corporation, and you will be deprived of all the cyberware and credits that you had in your account. Fortunately, none of the dialog options will lead to a fight. The quest will soon be over. After watching the cutscene, a new main mission - The Rescue will begin.
