At the end of Cyberpunk 2077’s first act, you’ll be tasked with deciding where to send Jackie. There are two different options here, both of which lead to totally different outcomes. It’s a big decision that you have to make on the spot with no real idea of what either choice will mean in the long run – personally, I was just staring at the screen for ages trying to pick one.
If you’re here because you want to know how each choice affects the story, then you’ve come to the right place. If you’re struggling to figure out where to send Jackie in Cyberpunk 2077, check out our guide for details on all of the possible outcomes depending on the choice you make now.
There are spoilers for the Cyberpunk 2077 prologue in the guide below.
Cyberpunk 2077 – Where To Send Jackie
After pulling off the heist at the end of the Cyberpunk 2077 prologue, Jackie will get shot. He’ll still accompany you out of the building and help you fight off Arasaka, although when you eventually reach Delamain’s cab, Jackie will be in a pretty bad way.
You’ll be able to talk to Jackie as he’s dying in the car. Ultimately, the choices you make here don’t make any difference as to how the story plays out, because, unfortunately, Jackie dies no matter what.
After Jackie dies and Delamain stops the cab, you’ll need to make an important choice: what to do with Jackie’s remains. There are two different options here, both of which have long-term effects. You can send Jackie’s remains to his family to allow them to mourn, or send them to Vik’s ripperdoc clinic to prevent his mother from seeing him like this.
Cyberpunk 2077 – What To Do With Jackie’s Remains
Here’s what happens for each of the two possible decisions you can make in relation to Jackie’s remains in Cyberpunk 2077:
- Send Jackie’s remains to his family: This unlocks a side job later in the game that cannot be unlocked otherwise. It’s worth noting that telling Delamain to wait until you come back will also trigger this outcome, so both of those decisions are essentially the same.
- Send Jackie’s remains to Viktor’s clinic: This doesn’t unlock any side job, but it does offer you extra dialogue in a later main story quest, Totalimmortal. There will also be extra cutscenes in said quest.
It’s worth noting that you will receive Jackie’s bike from Mama Welles regardless of the decision you make, as noted in our Cyberpunk 2077 best cars and bikes guide.
If you want to know more about the quest you unlock if you send Jackie’s remains to his family, or the dialogue you unlock if you choose Viktor’s clinic, check out our spoiler-heavy Cyberpunk 2077 endings guide. The side quest from sending his remains to his family is completely missable, and, in my opinion, more worthwhile than the cutscenes that play in Totalimmortal.
