In Cyberpunk 2077 deciding the best life path sounds stressful. You have to choose the life path between Street Kid, Nomad, and Corpo and it looks like it defines your playthrough before you start playing the game. Each of them has separate origins, opening missions, and dialogue options. But don’t worry in this guide, we will tell you about each Street Kid, Nomad, and Corpo options.
There will be mild spoilers in this guide for the first hour of the game, everyone will get the same game, mission, and options with just a different background to kick things off. So just pick the one you like the most.
What Is The Best Cyberpunk 2077 Lifepath?
You will have to choose a life path from Street Kid, Nomad, and Corpo in Cyberpunk 2077 at the start of the game. Each of the characters has a different backstory – who they are and where they come from. The only difference that you will see by selecting any one of the characters is a different opening story mission. Once you go through the opening mission, each character will end up in the same room, with access to the same clothes, weapons, and so on. Each of the characters has a different life path dialogue options occasionally, these mainly add colors. Now let’s take a look at the opening missions for each character.
Cyberpunk 2077 Nomad lifepath
If you start playing as Nomad the story will start you out in Badlands, you left your nomad clan and want to go it alone. At the start of the story, you will be getting your car repaired after it broke down, before being run out of town by the sheriff. Then you meet with a client looking for help to smuggle something into Night City. You cross the border with your client but things don’t go well and it ends up with you living in Night City. The nomad option is the only one that has a unique mission. Later in the game, you can recover your car from the opening mission and add it to your available vehicles.
Cyberpunk 2077 Corpo lifepath
If you start playing as Corpo your game will start in Arasaka Tower, you will later discover that it is an important location. The boss calls you in his office, where he’s watching a meeting with the European Space Council. You will be given a special task by him, and then you to meet a friend at a nightclub to mull things over. You get followed by someone things get bad for you. After six months you have left Arasaka Crop, and you are in your apartment in Mega building H10 ready to take on Night City as a mercenary.
Cyberpunk 2077 Street Kid lifepath
If you choose the Street Kid lifepath, it means that you are a child of Night City. You are born and raised in Watson. Everyone knows you in the area, but for a couple of years you have been away trying to make a life elsewhere but you failed. When you get back to Night City, many of the local fixers know your name and many others are pleased to see you back. You are known to be a reliable and local merc, so the barman in your local having some trouble comes to you for help. The barman owes some debt to Kirk, who is quite well known for being a troublemaker. You will visit Kirk and offer him to do a job in return for clearing the debt of the barman. Kirk gives you a job but it is not quite easy to do that job. But you do make a fast friend while doing the job and kick off your return to Night City in Style.
