Which Lifepath Should You Choose in Cyberpunk 2077? - Answered

Choosing your character’s whole history and background is quite a big decision. How will choosing different lifepaths impact your gameplay and story?

Despite what many believe, lifepaths in Cyberpunk 2077 don’t make a game-breaking difference to the story. That level of depth and size of the story is quite frankly impossible.

Having three separate storylines is a big job, development-wise. Also, would you rather have three small stories or one enormous one?

Why Should You Bother Choosing a Lifepath in Cyberpunk 2077?

Well, there are some differences, after all. For example, each character has a unique background and story, meaning you should choose a lifepath that resonates with you or you like.

In addition to that, the starting missions, interactions, and the story are different for each character. For those who haven’t yet started playing and who are unaware, there are three life paths to choose from:

  • Nomad – Rough background and history. Part of a clan before this life.
  • Corpo – From a slightly more sophisticated background but with much experience in corruption and business.
  • Street Kid – Known for your life in the streets and your failures to leave the streets and start a life elsewhere.

Which Lifepath to Choose?

It ultimately comes down to preference and personal choice. Other than that, you will start at the same place after the starting mission, with the same clothes, weapons, and interactions available.

I failed to mention that some interactions worldwide in Cyberpunk will differ based on the lifepath you have chosen.

At this moment, all lifepaths have the same side gigs and hustles. It is yet unclear whether there are unique ones to each category.

If you are struggling with your character choice, I suggest this: Look at it from a success story perspective. Choose the character you want to see most succeed in this god-forsaken place!

Furthermore, the appearance might play a role for some people, but it shouldn’t. After all, you can always customize your character in Cyberpunk 2077!
