Johnny Silverhand is one of the biggest characters in Cyberpunk 2077, being an influential figure with a legendary status in the game. There’s a lot that you can learn from the resident rocker boy but you should probably read this before agreeing to each and every decision that comes from Johnny Silverhand.
Who Is Johnny Silverhand in Cyberpunk 2077
Johnny Silverhand is an NPC in Cyberpunk 2077, whom you meet just after the prologue of the game. He used to be the lead singer of the band Samurai and was one of the key figures during the 4th Corporate War. Johnny Silverhand was eventually killed by Adam Smasher but survives on a microchip.
During the ending of the prologue, V and Jackie are sent to steal a microchip from Arsaka Industries. During this mission, things go south, and to preserve the microchip, V has to insert it into his head. This merges SIlverhand’s and V’s personalities together while sharing the same body.
Once Johnny Silverhand gains access to V’s mind, he starts to influence all the decisions and thoughts of V whenever he seems fit. Johnny has a motive of his own and will use you to get things done his way by using one method or the other.
Players will have the option to befriend or make Johnny Silverhand their enemy, which solely depends on what they do during the missions. Johnny Silverhand can be a friend or a foe, it all depends on what the players choose.
While Johnny Silver is on a task to find his lost girlfriend Alt Cunningham, his actions can often lead to a lot of destruction and chaos along the way. Alt Cunningham has been captured by Arasaka Industries and nothing will stop our rockerboy from bringing her back.
As V, you will need to find a balance between listening to Johnny Silverhand and not being influenced completely by him. He’s not all good, but neither is he as bad as what he seems to be, Silverhand is an enigma in his own right and you will have to carve out a path for your own.
You should pay attention to what Johnny Silverhand has to say, as he often will alert you of danger and will advise you to get out of a sticky situation, whether you listen to him or not is completely on you.
