Cyberpunk 2077 Pisces – Accept Or Refuse Maiko’s Payment

Pisces is a major side job in Cyberpunk 2077 that has a huge impact on how your relationship with Judy Alvarez shapes up going forward. If you’re planning to romance Judy, this quest plays a huge part in forwarding that goal – make the wrong decision here and she’ll hate you for the rest of the game.

This side job is also related to the quests Talkin’ ‘Bout A Revolution and Pyramid Song, so we’ll be touching on those as we go along as well. The main choice in Pisces is whether to accept or refuse Maiko’s payment, as well as whether you stick to the plan or veer away from it.

Here’s a guide to every outcome in Cyberpunk 2077 Pisces, as well as which decisions to make if you want to romance Judy and unlock the rest of her quests.

Cyberpunk 2077 Pisces – Accept Or Refuse Maiko’s Payment

Pisces kicks off after you finish one of Judy’s other side jobs, Talkin’ ‘Bout A Revolution. You need to wait six in-game hours after completing that quest for Judy to text you. After another six hours pass, you can get started on Pisces, but only if you told Judy and the others that you would help them – if you refused their request, you’ll already have locked off the entirety of this questline and will be unable to proceed with Judy’s story.

Fortunately, you can still change your mind at this point – if you refused to help Judy, give her a call and tell her that you’ve changed your mind, which should give you access to the next quest in her arc.

Once you start Pisces, you’ll need to meet Judy at the H8 Megabuilding at around 4pm – it should be highlighted by a quest marker. Once you arrive, you’ll officially start your raid. Head down on the elevator and take out the three guards using stealth attacks. Speak to Judy and take another elevator up to the rooftop, progressing the quest to your next objective.

Vault across to the other roof beside you – as indicated by the trajectory on your minimap – and head down the ladder on the other side of it. While you can avoid combat by slipping into the penthouse through the shutters instead of walking through the door and having to deal with guards, it might be worthwhile to take out as many enemies as possible now, depending on which decision you want to make later. If you want to veer away from Maiko’s plan, definitely take the time to clear as many foes as possible now.

If you went through the shutters, you’ll basically be at Hiromi’s office already, which is where you need to talk to Maiko. Otherwise, you’ll need to pass through a bar area with two Tyger Claws. Take them down using stealth attacks and press onward, taking out the lone guard just outside Hiromi’s office before finally heading in to talk to Maiko.

Once you get to Hiromi’s office, there are three different options to choose from. Pay careful attention, as this can determine whether or not you need to fight, as well as whether or not you will be able to finish Judy’s questline and potentially pursue a romantic relationship with her.

Cyberpunk 2077 Pisces – Accept Maiko’s Payment And Go Ahead With The Plan

This option will lead to the follow outcomes:

  • Judy will hate you and you will not be able to romance her or have access to the Pyramid Song side job.
  • Maiko will become the boss of Clouds.
  • You will not have to fight the Tyger Claws.

Cyberpunk 2077 Pisces – Refuse Maiko’s Payment And Go Ahead With The Plan

This option will lead to the follow outcomes:

  • Judy will be happy – you have access to Pyramid Song and can romance her provided you meet the right prerequisites.
  • Maiko will become the boss of Clouds.
  • You will not have to fight the Tyger Claws.

Cyberpunk 2077 Pisces – Ignore All Payment Options And Go Against The Plan

This option will lead to the follow outcomes:

  • Judy will be happy – you have access to Pyramid Song and can romance her provided you meet the right prerequisites.
  • Maiko will not become the boss of Clouds, and you will have to decide whether to kill or spare her – this doesn’t have a huge impact on anything, but Judy will not be impressed if you kill Maiko (although you can still romance her and complete her quests).
  • You will have to fight the Tyger Claws.

If you didn’t piss Judy off, you will have access to the Pyramid Song side job after 24 in-game hours pass, at which point Judy will send you a text message inviting you to go diving together.

Cyberpunk 2077 Pyramid Song Clues

Judy will message you exactly 24 hours after you complete Pisces, provided you got at ending in which she still likes and trusts you. You need to accept her invitation to Laguna Bend lake and head there at dawn – around 6:30am. If you don’t accept right away, you can choose to do this quest at another time by calling Judy using your in-game phone and saying you have changed your mind, and that you’re ready to meet up now.

When you arrive at the lake, take the wetsuit Judy offers you and go diving with her – it’s fairly self-explanatory, just do what it says on the screen. After this, you’ll head to a diner, where you can scan four different items: a camera, a hockey stick, a sign, and a picture frame. They’re all located on the left hand side of the street, between Judy’s old house and the front of the diner itself. If you scan the camera, you can actually pick it up and present it to Judy as a gift – remember, she loves tinkering with old tech, as evidenced by the machinery in her braindance editing studio earlier in the game. Once you’ve scanned everything, tell Judy you’re ready to keep going, at which point she will bring you to the next area in the quest.

Here, you can scan a doll, an umbrella, and an old car across the road, just outside of the gas station. Again, tell Judy you’re finished once you’re ready to keep moving. At this point, she’ll bring you to an old church, which you’ll need to enter via a passage on the right hand side of the main entrance.

At this point, you’ll be able to commit to Judy’s romance provided you make all of the right decisions and meet the correct prerequisites.

Cyberpunk 2077 Judy Romance Guide

First of all, there are certain conditions V needs to meet in order to romance Judy. They must have both a feminine voice and body type, and they must have finished Pisces with one of the outcomes listed above in which Judy does not hate you.

Once you meet these requirements, you can romance Judy by choosing the following prompts and actions:

  • In Pyramid Song, accept Judy’s response to go diving. If you refuse, you can call her and do it later.
  • Accept her response to spend the night together in the bungalow. If you refuse, this will lock out the romance for good.
  • Kiss Judy when the prompt arises in the bathroom after turning on the generator. If you lean away and then refuse to hug her, you will prevent the romance from happening and Judy will leave Night City the following day.
  • In the morning, tell her the day you spent together was “the beginning of something amazing.” If you tell her it was “a pleasant distraction,” Judy will leave Night City for good and you will not gain access to her apartment or be able to start a romantic relationship whatsoever.
  • This cements the relationship and gives Judy a chance of appearing in the Cyberpunk 2077 ending you get.

If you start a romantic relationship with Judy by following the above instructions, you will now have access to a personal stash in her apartment. It’s worth noting that the majority of this quest can still be completed if you don’t have both a feminine voice and body type, but Judy will insist on staying friends – you still get access to her apartment, though.

That’s all you need to know about Judy’s whole questline, including what decision to make at the end of Pisces and how to romance her in Pyramid Song.
