Main Quests or Main Jobs are quests that follow the main story in Cyberpunk 2077 and Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty. The quests are ordered by act, and then by the order in which they are normally started within the act, but can be sorted alphabetically for searching.

Each quest will only appear in the act in which it starts, even if the job persists through more than one single act. To see a job walkthrough, click on the job name.


The prologue takes place in 2076 and establishes V's background, consisting of a several basic tasks which also act as tutorials for a number of gameplay elements. The first three prologue jobs listed below are mutually exclusive, and the one which you play will depend on which lifepath that was chosen during character customization. All three prologues introduce V to the Night City Mercenary named Jackie Welles.

Act 3[]

Act 3 begins after ending Tapeworm. You are now able to visit Hanako Arasaka at Embers during Nocturne Op55N1. This quest contains the Point of No Return for the main story. Once you use the elevator to enter Embers, any other quests in the journal will be marked as failed, and you will no longer be able to free-roam Night City. The jobs that follow are determined by dialogue option choices.

  • During early development of Cyberpunk 2077, it was decided to name the quests after songs, choosing which name was best depending on the quest's motif. Not only this, but the chosen songs were music Johnny Silverhand would've liked. This is why the earliest quests in the game, before meeting Johnny, have generic names instead of song ones.[1]
