During the “I Walk The Line” mission in Cyberpunk 2077, you will need to decide between the Voodoo Boys and NetWatch. After making your way through an abandoned mall and probably getting dumpstered by Sasquatch at least once, you will come face to face with the Netrunner who has been causing the Voodoo Boys problems.

They want him out of the picture, but he has another option for you. If you are happy to let him leave with the data he has acquired, he will get rid of the virus the Voodoo Boys installed in your firmware and release the Voodoo Boys leaders that he has on ice. Here’s what you need to know about if you should side with NetWatch or The Voodoo Boys during the I Walk The Line mission in Cyberpunk 2077.

If you go with the NetWatch for this choice, they let you know that the Voodoo Boys had always planned to burn you at the end of this mission. However, the NetWatch holds up their end of the deal in your Cyberpunk 2077 playthrough, and they give Bridgette and Ti back to the Voodoo Boys. Because they get what they want, you’ll have the chance to walk out of the GIM with no trouble, even if Placide will be angry at you for your decision. You can feel however you want to about this, but he was planning to burn you, which makes not siding with him an easier choice.

Bridgette knows who you are, and what you have in your head, and is willing to help you as long as you let her examine the chip. That’s a good, bonus for you during your Cyberpunk 2077 playthrough.

If you punch out the Agent and jack into him while he is on the ground, Placide uses you as a relay to burn all the agents, happily trying to kill you in the process. When you get back to the mall, Bridgette is awake. Both options lead you to the same place in a Cyberpunk 2077 playthrough, but you can read on for some spoilers impact what will happen in the next missions.

What’s The Best Option in I Walk the Line for Cyberpunk 2077?

Transmission is the next step in the quest and involves some general story movement. Towards the end, if you side with NetWatch, they will get a bunch of Voodoo Boy guards killed. We don’t want to go into why because it would be a major story spoiler. You will need to sneak or fight your way out at the end of the mission.

If you side with the Voodoo Boys, you can leave peacefully instead. We opted to side with Netwatch for our overall Cyberpunk 2077 playthrough, as nobody likes working with backstabbers. It’s a better option in general for you to go with in almost every regard. You can always try to save before you make this decision to see how it all plays out, but other than seeing what happens, it’s really not worth siding with the Voodoo Boys in I Walk The Line.
