One of the main missions in Cyberpunk 2077’s Phantom Liberty DLC is ‘The Killing Moon’, and you can get access to it if you have, during Firestarter, helped Songbird escape. You must get through NCX and the Night City International and Translunar Spaceport to complete this mission.
After this, you have a crucial choice: Give Songbird to Reed or not. If you want to know the consequences of both these options to make an informed decision, don’t worry; I have you covered! Keep reading to find out!
Give Songbird to Reed or not?
In the mission, as you get closer to the shuttle, you will find V conversing with Reed. At this point, you must choose from deciding Reed’s fate: Kill him or give him Songbird. Here are both the options discussed in detail:
Choosing to give Songbird to Reed
If you choose to give Songbird to Reed, you will find that he takes her away in his aerial vehicle. My best guess is that this will follow Reed executing the plan discussed in the previous conversation. This marks the end of the Phantom Liberty DLC. However, don’t be disheartened; you will still get access to new missions after the credits. These are:
- Who wants to live forever,
- Through Pain to Heaven, and
- Things Done Changed.
Completing all of these will take you to a newer ending to the game.
Choosing to Kill Reed
However, if you kill Reed, you can load Songbird to the shuttle and send her to the moon. This will mark the end of the DLC. However, if you have chosen this option, you will not have access to the aforementioned missions that are accessible post-credit. Therefore, you won’t see the new ending to the base game.
So, personally, I recommend that you choose to give Songbird to Reed instead of killing Reed so that you can get your hands on that exclusive DLC content.
However, there is a trick to it: you can choose both options if you have a save before the decision and fully live through both experiences without playing the whole story again.
That pretty much sums up all that there is to know about Should you give Songbird to Reed in The Killing Moon, in Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC. Stay tuned for further updates!
