Should You Pick Anderson or Nika in Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty ‘Dogtown Saints?’

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty has a few new side gigs and missions for players to embark on. They’re something to do when you aren’t tackling the main story found in the DLC. “Dogtown Saints” is one of the better Cyberpunk 2077 side gigs you can find in the new area of Dogtown, since it requires the player to choose between Anderson and Nika to decide the quest’s conclusion.

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty “Dogtown Saints” Choice Explained

Note: Full spoilers lie ahead for the “Dogtown Saints” gig.

This side gig in the Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC area comes from Mr. Hands, who contacts you randomly during the DLC. This usually happens between main story missions where he asks you to go to a clinic in Dogtown and rescue a man named Anderson from a group of scavengers led by the woman Nika.

Here’s a screenshot of the location, to help you out:

It seems like a fairly straightforward rescue quest, until you reach Anderson in his clinic and realize Nika is after him because Anderson has her brother. You now have two choices: side with Anderson and eliminate Nika or side with Nika and let her get her vengeance against the shady ripperdoc.

I recommend a third path, though, for this quest, which is sort of like an in-between ending. You side with Nika initially, but don’t let her kill Anderson. Rather, convince Anderson to give Nika back her brother. This resolves the situation peacefully, as no one has to die. Nika will leave satisfied and you’ll successfully rescue Anderson, as you were told to do.

It also provides you with the best cash reward from Mr. Hands. If you pick one of the other two options, someone will die in the gig and your cash reward will likely be affected by that outcome as a result.

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty is available for the PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
