In this Dying Light 2 Cheers Quest choice guide, we’ll tell you what happens if you save Julian or Marco and hopefully help you select the best result.

Accept Marco’s Deal or Tell the Truth & Save Julian, Cheers! Poisoned Water Choice Dying Light 2

Dying Light 2 Cheers – Fine, Accept Marco’s Deal Choice Consequence

When you catch up to Marco, he will explain the entire situation, claiming that he accidentally sold the poisoned water to Julian. He will offer to buy you off if you lie and testify against Julian. To do this, in the conversation with Marco, first select the white “But what about Julian?” dialogue option. As you know, the white dialogue options only give you more information, they’re not choices in themselves. The actual choice “Fine.” will appear after that. Select this, and he will reward you with 250 Credits and x5 Flour.

When you go back to Julian, you will get two possible answers. The white choice “What’s in it for me?” will result in Aiden unsuccessfully trying to get more money out of the situation. The yellow “The supplier’s water was clean.” will result in Julian getting hauled away to answer for his alleged crimes. The consequence of accepting Marco’s deal is that Julian is no longer going to be available in the game and Dying Light 2 Cheers quest ends.

Dying Light 2 Julian or Marco – I’ll Tell Them the Truth & Save Julian Choice

If you select the “I’ll tell them the truth.” choice, Marco will be very displeased to hear that you are not willing to help him. In fact, he will be so upset that he will attack you. After killing Marco, go back to Julian. You will have the “What’s in it for me?” white choice and “The water from the supplier was tainted.” yellow choice. Regardless of which one you select, Aiden will explain that Marco was responsible for the poisoned water. Julian has now been found innocent, and he will remain in the game. The consequence is that Marco is now dead. Personally, we’d go with this choice. After all, Marco is responsible for poisoning the water, and it’s not right that an innocent Julian should take the blame for that. Marco doesn’t appear in the game later as a special vendor so his disappearance is of no consequence to the player. Dying Light 2 Cheers side quest is the real representative of what this game is all about. Many of the choices will remove NPCs permanently from your playthrough.

    i think you should mention what the people are in situations like this. saying ‘marco will no longer be in the game’ doesnt mean all that much. add if they are a merchant, or appear in later quests etc. it would be a little more helpful.

    i sided with the guy that accidentally sold the poison water. Hard times man, sometimes ya get drunk and sell poison water. Also he said the other guy was a weasel anyway so i figured he would get out of it. Later that man was hanging from the rafters so I was wrong LMAO
