A Day in the Life is a Side Job in Cyberpunk 2077 (CP77). This walkthrough will guide you through all steps of the A Day in the Life Side Quest.
Area: Santo Domingo (Arroyo)
Quest Giver: Darrell
Requirement: Completed Main Job “Playing for Time”
Reward: Unlocks Darrell as a food vendor (if you fail the quest he dies)
Mission Info: Gonna sound like my gramps for a sec, but you know, in my time, being a punk meant something different. People fought against the system whatever way they could, frying the biggest fish they could catch, tearing down palaces brick by brick. Now every random gonk-brain fool thinks they’re a hero for flatlining an unarmed normie. This isn’t your beef, I get it… But are you sure don’t wanna teach those worms a lesson?
- Talk to the thugs
Starting Location: A Day in the Life
Approach the quest marker in Santo Domingo (Arroyo) and talk to the food vendor. Some thugs are about to steal his bike – choose dialogue “Sure, I’ll help” (if you pick the other dialogue it will fail the quest and Darrell dies).
Talk to the thugs
Walk with Darrell over to the thugs in the corner of the market square. If you are at least Street Level 21 you can get a peaceful outcome because the thugs will know you from the streets and be afraid of you. Pick these dialogues to succeed the quest:
- Leave him alone
- I’ll blow your brains out
If your Street Cred is below Level 21 there can only be a violent outcome here and they attack you.
If you pick the other dialogues that it’s none of your business, they will stab Darrell and he dies, which makes him unavailable as a food vendor.
This finishes A Day in the Life side quest job in Cyberpunk 2077 (CP77).
