As Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty’s story draws to a close, you’ll be given the choice of whether you should help Songbird escape to the moon or let Solomon Reed take her. There are three different outcomes to this scenario, each of which I have discussed below. It goes without saying that these are spoilers for the Phantom Liberty storyline.
Fight Reed or surrender to Songbird – The Killing Moon Quest Cyberpunk Phantom Liberty
When your shuttle reaches the launch platform, you will have two options. You can either pick up Songbird from his seat or call Reed to turn him in (first image). If you take Songbird and take her to the spaceship, you will encounter Reed already waiting for you there.
When interacting with Reed, you will again receive various dialogue options that will determine the outcome, including the option to hand over the Songbird to the FIA. It all comes down to three choices, which you can see in the image above:
- Gun Holster | Deal
- Weapon in holster | She’s yours, but I don’t want anything in return.
- Get your weapon | So Mi is not yours.
1. Make a deal with Reed and give him the Songbird
If you make a deal with Reed, he will take Songbird to NUSA and assure you that she will be taken care of. In exchange, you will be promised a cure for your illness using the Relic of Johnny Silverhand. This choice will lead you to a new ending in which you will remain in a coma for two years. When you return to Night City in 2079, everything will change, including your ability to install any kind of cyberware. Since you are no longer the mercenary you were, the story of Cyberpunk 2077 will end.
2. Give Songbird to Reed with no strings attached.
Let Reed take Songbird and make her answer for her crimes against the country. This works the same as the previous option, but you do not receive any treatment. You will be returned to modern Night City and can continue completing the remaining quests in Phantom Liberty and the main game.
3. Fight Reed
If you draw your weapon, you will have a chance to shoot Solomon Reed in the head. Don’t expect a major boss fight, as he will immediately fall to the ground dead. You can then put Songbird on a spaceship, which will take him to the Moon for treatment. On the way back, don’t forget to grab Reed’s Pariah pistol. After the credits roll, you’ll be back in Night City, just like in the last iteration.
