Olive Branch is a side quest in Cyberpunk 2077. It’s the one where a suspicious Russian asks you to bring a car to the Tyger Claws as a gift, in order to appease them. During the ride, the car will start talking – turns out there’s a guy in the trunk. His name is Alex something, he’s a biotech engineer, and he would like out of the trunk. You’re faced with a choice then – to release him, or take him to the meet as agreed. If you’re wondering what to pick, our Cyberpunk 2077 Olive Branch guide will show you the consequences of choosing to let Alex out or close the trunk.
Let Alex out
If you decide to release Alex, he’ll pay you double what you were promised. He’ll run along and Wakako will give you a spiel about betraying your clientele. So you’ll get more money, and the satisfaction of knowing you’ve tricked a bunch of crooks.
Close trunk – deliver Alex to Tyger Claws
If you close the trunk on Alex and drive him to the Tyger Claws diner, the rude gangsters will send you away as soon as you drop off the car. Don’t overstay your welcome, or they might attack you. You’ll get the agreed upon sum, and Wakako will commend your professionalism.
Keep in mind that after you drive into the parking lot, there’s no changing your mind. Once you park the car behind the diner, you’ll lose the ability to open the trunk, or enter the car. In other words, don’t postpone making the decision.
It won’t make any difference in the long run – it’s not like this choice will derail the plot of the entire game or something. It’s pretty much a morality choice, with some extra cash if you make the right decision.
