Cyberpunk 2077’s Phantom Liberty DLC offers players the chance to see how athletes train in Night City. In talent academy, AV is asked to infiltrate a sports training center as an undercover agent to obtain classified information. This concert can be solved completely without weapons involved and will have different endings depending on your choices.

In this guide, I will teach you how to get the best result for the Talent Academy concert in the best possible way and the rewards obtained upon completion.

Talent Academy Tutorial

You must complete the Phantom Liberty DLC story mission, The condemned, before you can start Talent Academy. The Service can be found on the green icon. east of Terra Cognita. Once on site, Mr. Hands will contact you to find a sports academy to extract data for his client.

Meet with Mr. Hands’ contact. It is at the end of the sports academy building next to the elevator. He will give you the details about the job, including his undercover personality. Once you’ve been cleared, head to the elevator and take it to the exhibition hall.

Talk to the receptionist on the left side and Johnny will appear and tell you to go to the bar. Go down the stairs and sit on the chair behind the bar. The bartender will approach you and ask which team you are recruiting for. It is important to respond with “None of your businesses”after ordering your drink. If you tell the waiter that you are looking for San Diego Shredders, a guest named Caden will listen and ask you questions that could lead to your identity being exposed. Very soon a distraction will occur on the exhibition stage that will allow you to sneak away.

Open the door on the left side of the bar that says “Staff Only.” Go into the next room and stand behind the boxes on the right. There are two guards in this area and a camera. Disable the camera with quick tricks and wait for one of the guards to enter the bathroom before knocking out the other. Enter the bathroom and knock out the remaining guard so they don’t discover the body.

There is a metal window that you can open and jump through, opposite the entrance you came from. There’s a guard there that you can take out silently. Access the computer from that room and use the “Local Network” to open the doors and disable the cameras. Then go to the next hallway and eliminate the guard there.

Go down the stairs and continue straight. At the end of the hallway, there is a door that you can force open with at least 15 body Statistics. There is some good equipment you can take there. Take out the two guards in the next room across the hall. Quickly hack the computer to distract one guard before knocking out the other. Then take out that guard yourself. Access the room’s computer and turn off the surveillance cameras.

Head to the right hallway and enter the double sliding doors. Stealth towards the door on the left. Knock out the lone guard guarding the next room. Go back to the hallway and knock out the two guards. Enter the dormitory and you will find an optional meeting with one of the athletes in training who you can speak to to learn more about the sports facilities.

At the end of the bedroom hallway, enter the door on the left. Go right and you will reach Fionna’s office. Talk to Tommie and comfort him to find his own team. After interacting with the computer on the desktop, unfortunately, Fiona will always catch V before she can finish downloading the data.

This is where you have to make a decision. Fiona offers V a controlled leak of the information her client is seeking. This still achieves the goal. However, V can choose to carry out the job to the letter and steal all the data. Once he makes his choice, he leaves the facility and you are done with Talent Academy.

Should you accept Fiona’s offer?

When V confronts Fiona in her office, she gives him the option of conducting a controlled escape. Unfortunately, not everyone will leave happy. Having all your client data will close the sports facilities and your choices could lead to the different results below:

Accept Fiona’s offer

V hears what Fiona has in mind when she catches them in her office. To obtain this result, choose the following dialog options:

  • “I need access to your computer.”
  • “It’s about taxes.”
  • “Start talking.”
  • “Are you using Tommie as a bargaining chip?”
  • “We will do the filtration.”

V accepts Fiona’s offer to stage a controlled escape. Johnny is disappointed by your choice, but everyone else turns out fine. Troubled kids have the chance to bet everything on the chance to get out of Dogtown or risk being left with nothing but more debts to pay.

Put Tommie on a team

V shows concern for Tommie and asks him what his chances of getting a contract are. To obtain this result, she must select the following dialog options:

  • “I need access to your computer.”
  • “It’s about taxes.”
  • “Start talking.”
  • “Are you using Tommie as a bargaining chip?”
  • “What are Tommie’s chances of getting a contract?”
  • “We’ll do the leak, but they hire Tommie.”

V accepts Fiona’s offer and has Tommie join a European team. You can then find Tommie later at the Petrochem Stadium Market clothing store. His father owns the store and thanks you for helping him.

Reject Fiona’s offer

V shows nothing but disgust at what Fiona and her sports facilities are doing. These are the dialog options to obtain this result:

  • “I need access to your computer.”
  • “It’s about taxes.”
  • “Start talking.”
  • “Are you using Tommie as a bargaining chip?”
  • “Fuck your offer.”

Fiona grants V unconditional access to the data. Go back to the computer terminal and get the data. Fiona threatens V that she will regret it. You can also choose to eliminate Fiona, which makes Johnny happy. Anyway, his guards will ambush you when you leave the facility. Take care of them and the job will be done.

listen to johnny

Sports facilities have been abusing and taking advantage of children. This upsets Johnny, who suggests that V should burn the place down. Choose these dialogue options so you can get this ending:

  • “I need access to your computer.”
  • “It’s about taxes.”
  • “Start talking.”
  • “Are you using Tommie as a bargaining chip?”
  • “What are Tommie’s chances of getting a contract?”
  • “We’ll do the leak, but they hire Tommie.”

Then take out your gun and shoot Fiona. Johnny will be happy. He comes back and eliminates all the staff as well. This is possibly the best ending to the Talent Academy concert, as they can’t take advantage of any more kids and Tommie signs with a team.

Reading Fiona’s emails reveals that those who are not chosen for a contract after three years at their facility must cover the costs of maintaining their cyberware, something most families in Dogtown are unable to do. While there are a few who are successful, most cannot reach such heights. Make no mistake: these people are not altruistic businessmen who take care of poor children.
