Here is all you need to know if you’re in confusion about which life path you should choose in Cyberpunk 2077.

Cyberpunk 2077 is CD Projekt Red’s take on an epic action RPG. The story of Cyberpunk 2077 is set in the fictional city known as Night City.

You play as a cyberpunk mercenary named V, who is wrapped up in a do-or-die fight for survival. The decisions you take as V and the paths you choose shape the story of the game. However, the game lets you choose a path at the very beginning of the story itself as well.

You can pick between three profiles at the start of the game. And the choice of a life path and its impact on the story is woven deeply into the game as it will influence your dialogue options, missions, and other things in your adventures in Night City.

So, if you are wondering about which lifepath is best to start off the game, then you’re in the right place.

As mentioned above, you get to choose between three lifepaths. The Street Kid, a Corpo, and a Nomad. While what you do further down the road is almost identical in all lifepaths, the three lifepaths start you off from very different places.

Cyberpunk 2077 Corpo life path

In my opinion, starting off as a Corpo will give you an experience unlike any other. Here, you start off towards the upper end of the Arasaka Corporation, where influence and money aren’t a big issue to you, unlike the other two life paths.

But here’s the twist: you soon fall from grace and then begin your journey by being surrounded by the people you used to look down upon.

The advantage here is that even after falling from grace, you pretty much know the ins and outs of how the big corporation runs, and you still have connections.

Additionally, you get dialogue options that help you read between the lines and make better business deals down the road, come across better opportunities, and get better deals on certain materials and upgrades.

Also, your friendship with Jackie kicks off from the get-go and is already established as lifelong. Moreover, the Corpo path doubles down on the plot as Arasaka taking everything from V gives V a more solid reason to get revenge on Arasaka.

So overall, the Corpo lifepath is probably the lifepath that you will enjoy the most because of how it starts off and the perks it provides.
