In Cyberpunk 2077, fixers are smugglers, information brokers, and other well-connected professionals who run their trade on Night City’s black market. V can interact with some famous fixers, however, not all of them continue to play an important role in the story.
Redditor BigBadBam started the discussion with a post that featured headshots of six of the top fixers in the game, including Dexter DeShawn. In the accompanying text, he stated that it would be great if every fixer in the game ended up with a big mission for the player. One fixer already fits this pattern: Dex, who becomes the main antagonist after V’s work goes one place. This would be a good way for Cyberpunk 2077’s story updates to focus on existing characters rather than adding new ones.
One user added that it would be nice to see each fixer get a proper view of the player before they start issuing missions. This would make a lot of sense, especially since the fallout from Dex’s failed work is actively hurting V’s reputation and career in the game’s narrative. For example, Bestia Amendiares, who is considered the best fixer in Night City, should not recommend V to her clients until he improves his reputation. Giving each of the game’s other fixers more time to get to know V, draw their own conclusions, and decide to recommend V to their clients would help make V’s rise more believable.
A second user commented that it’s strange that killing members of a fixer’s gang doesn’t affect V’s relationship with that fixer. They argue that it would make more sense – and add a new form of tension to the game – if killing the members of the Tiger Claw gang made it impossible for the player to work with Wakako Okada. However, this is likely due to the game’s lack of a clear faction system.
