Kill or Spare Oda Guide for Cyberpunk 2077

During the Search and Destroy mission in Cyberpunk 2077 you will encounter a boss named Oda as you are about to unplug the netrunner. This boss is an elite soldier under the employ of the Arasaka company. When you fight Oda you will be presented with a choice at the end of the fight. If you wish to learn what happens for both decisions you’ve come to the right place. Consult our kill or spare Oda guide below to learn the outcomes of both choices.

What Happens if You Kill Oda?

The first choice is to kill Oda. Once you’ve whittled his health down you can simply finish him off as he lays on the ground before you. This choice is simple and easy and results in nothing special happening later in the game. Once Oda is gone, he’s gone for good.

What Happens if Your Spare Oda?

The alternative choice to killing Oda is to let him live. This choice is the one you should make as it leads to an interesting appearance in the Hanako’s Offer ending. When you arrive in the Arasaka Tower: Jungle area Oda will be with the security detail there. There is a brief exchange between him and V. After the exchange and the boardroom meeting Oda will help you battle the attackers that appear. This makes the segment slightly easier than if you go it alone.

That’s all you need to know about the outcome of your choice with Oda. Sparring this NPC is a no brainer as it is a fun little appearance in one of the game’s endings. It also helps you out in the combat segment you need to complete to return to the elevator. Be a pal and spare Oda’s life.
