There are lots of decisions to be made in Cyberpunk 2077, some of them with far-reaching consequences. To properly discuss this one, we need to cover a spoiler warning first. There will actually be two layers to the spoilers.

The first are mild spoilers, the second are mega spoilers. We will break them into their own little categories, so if you really want to know what to do, read on, but prepare to stop reading.

Mild Spoilers

Evelyn and Dex are working on the same job, but Ev isn’t loyal. She doesn’t see the point of Dex being involved and is happy to cut you out. The mild spoiler here is that this choice even happens, Ev will ask you to cut out Dex, and you can either say you will think about it, or that Dex trusts you, and you are not willing to do him like that.

Saying you will think about it will lead Ev to tell you about all the money involved, and how you could basically retire off the job. But leaves the option on the table for later. Tell her you won’t do it means she will give you her number, and say you should ring her if you change your mind.

Should you tell Dex (Mild Spoiler)

You will have a meeting with Dex about the job and will have the option to tell him about Ev moving against him. If you do, he will increase your cut.

Does any of this matter?

Nope. Read on for mega-spoliers as to why.

Mega Spoilers, read on at your peril

None of this matters because this is all just story stuff, and strictly about the type of character you are playing as for your own sake. Dex is not long for this world, so he can’t pay you anyway. Ev will skip town in the aftermath and will come back into the game later on.
