List of all main missions of Cyberpunk 2077’s core storyline.

Cyberpunk 2077 is a dystopian sci-fi RPG set in the near future. Developed by CD Projekt Red, it features a massive and deep storyline like those of the developer’s previous titles. Furthermore, while the story may not be as large as CDPR’s previous game, one can argue that it is packed with more content and tighter moment-to-moment pacing.

The story is split up into 5 Acts, including the prologue and the epilogue, containing a total of 33 main missions, an Interlude, and another similar half-mission.

If you focus solely on the main story missions, the game will take you 15-25 hours to complete. However, this is not recommended, as Cyberpunk is a massive game with a lot of side content. And the game’s best moments are arguably during those hours you spend exploring the depths of Night City.

That said, if you solely want to focus on Cyberpunk’s core storyline, this guide is for you.


Cyberpunk 2077 Main Story Explained

The story focuses on V (your controlled character), a hired gun in Night City, the most violent metropolis of the corporate universe where the game takes place.

At the beginning of the game, you can select one of three lifepaths for V: Nomad, Corpo, or Streetkid. This decision will alter your story’s starting point, prologue, dialogue choices, the characters you’ll meet, etc.

Whatever Lifepath you choose, the game starts with V starting a new life in Night City and Jackie Welles, another hired gun. V and Jackie are contracted by the local fixer, Dexter Deshawn, to steal a piece of technology known as the Chip of Immortality from the Arasaka Corporation. Although the pair manage to infiltrate Arasaka, the plan goes wrong.

Still, V manages to steal the chip. However, after meeting with Dexter, V is betrayed and left to die but manages to survive thanks to the chip and is haunted by Johnny Silverhand, the iconic Rocker played by Keanu Reeves.

Afterward, V finds out that their memory is being replaced with those of Johnny’s and goes on a mission to remove Johnny and survive. This mission will take you on a journey in a society where the lines of humanity and technology are blurred in a world of gangs, drugs, violence, sex, and opulence.
