Scrolls Before Swine in Cyberpunk 2077 is a side job that you can do for Aaron, and you can get a choice at the end between handing over the recordings or blackmailing Aaron. If you do go for the latter, you’ll have a second choice, in which you can either end up with more money or become several bullets heavier. Make a wrong move, and you might make Regina mad on top of everything. To help you navigate this maze, we’ve put together our Cyberpunk Scrolls Before Swine guide.
Give Recordings or Blackmail Aaron in Cyberpunk Scrolls Before Swine
In the Cyberpunk 2077 Scrolls Before Swine thievery job, at the very end, you’ll have the choice of whether you just give Aaron the recordings, or blackmail him. You’ll only get this second option if you examine the computer that the recording is on, and watch the video. Here’s what happens in each scenario, depending on what you choose.
If you just give the recording to Aaron, he’ll give you the money you agreed upon, and that’s it, the job is over. If, on the other hand, you mention that you saw the video, Aaron will double your pay, which is pretty neat. However, the quest can go two ways from here, too.
Specifically, if you antagonize Aaron in Scrolls Before Swine, and tell him that you want him to go to prison, he’ll immediately attack you. The problem is that, if you kill him, Regina will be very angry. So, if you go down this road, make sure you have some non-lethal weapons or mods to incapacitate him instead of killing him. Also, you won’t get the money, so keep that in mind, too.
How to Defeat Aaron Non-Lethally in Cyberpunk 2077 Scrolls Before Swine Thievery Job
There are several ways that you can defeat Aaron non-lethally in the Scrolls Before Swine Cyberpunk job. You can use blunt weapons, such as bats, Gorilla Arms, and the like. Alternatively, you can use a weapon that has a non-lethal mode of fire, like Skippy, or a weapon that you have installed a non-lethal mod on.
Really, at this point in the game, you probably have a good grasp on how non-lethal combat works in the game, and you can handle this relatively okay. Or just waste the guy, Regina and her agenda be damned. Or blackmail him for extra money. Whatever your moral compass points toward.
