Should you destroy, merge, or reset Delamain’s core – Don’t Lose Your Mind – Cyberpunk 2077

It’s a tough one.

Cyberpunk 2077

At the end of the Don’t Lose Your Mind mission in Cyberpunk 2077, you have three choices to pick from. You can decide to destroy the AI core that houses Delamain, reboot the AI core, or if your hacking skills are good enough you can merge all the AIs together into a single being.

Below we will run through what can happen depending on which you choose, but you will always get a car for your collection.

Destroy the AI Core

If you destroy the AI core, all the other AIs will be free. This will destroy the original Delamain that you have been working with. After all the AIs leave the building, one car will remain. This is the Excelsior, the original car from the Heist mission, and it will be added to your collection. As for the other AIs, they will go back to enjoying their lives in Night City from before you rounded them all up.

Reboot the AI Core

Rebooting the core will reset Delamain, and he will no longer remember you. All the other AIs will be destroyed. The new Delamain will only know that you effectively saved the AI, and will gift you a car. This is a shame, as he won’t remember any of the interesting conversations that you had, the jobs you did, or the fact that he learned a lot from speaking to you.

Interestingly, as you drive the car around, Delamain will speak you, asking you about life and human nature, and the conversations will echo the ones you had with the original Delamain.

Merge the AIs

Merging all the AIs will pretty much cause Delamain to evolve. He will say he has to leave and will give you a present, a car with a Delamain Jr AI in it. No matter what you do, you will get a car from the mission, and the original Delamain will be gone, so the choice is up to you.
