Cyberpunk 2077 Second Conflict choices guide

Denny or Henry?

Cyberpunk 2077 is a sprawling, open world RPG, and much like its predecessor The Witcher 3, it has several side quests with branching, choice-based paths. Second Conflict follows the trend, but be warned--this quest takes your past choices into more account than your current ones. A lot of the outcomes of Second Conflict are related to the choices you made in The Pickup, so it's too late to change things if you've already completed that mission. But if you run another playthrough, keep these choices in mind!

If you saved Brick in The Pickup, this mission will be a lot easier. Brick is in the building, and he's so grateful you saved his life he agrees to help you however he can. This enables you to complete the quest nonviolently. If instead, the remaining Maelstrom members and Brick both didn't make it out of The Pickup, you'll meet a woman named Patricia at the building. Meeting with Patricia guarantees you will have to fight your way out of the building after the meeting ends, so be ready.

The third outcome here is that if you're with Dum Dum and Royce you can get the info you need from Nancy. When it comes to getting out, you can blast your way through, same as the Patricia route, or you can sneak away.  To escape unnoticed, use the window in the bathroom and sneak around the building. You're going to want to stay close to the right hand wall to loop back to the elevator. Keep your eyes peeled for patrolling enemies while you do this. 

Once you've safely escaped the area with Nancy, your next destination will be Denny's mansion. Upon arriving, you'll need to find Denny and Henry. Scan the area to find tire tracks which will lead you behind the house where the two are arguing. The argument in question is about a concert, and it's your call who ultimately ends up going. There aren't any other consequences for this choice, so just choose whoever you want.
