The Cyberpunk 2077 Brigitte choice about whether to give access to the chip in the mission I Walk The Line isn't as impactful as you might think - because it's not so much a choice as a delaying tactic, the next flag in the quest chain being to hand over that chip, and things can't progress until you do. Choosing not to hand over access simply lets you go back out into the world of Cyberpunk 2077 until you're ready to move on with the main questline - but we get ahead of ourselves. Here's everything you need to know about what happens when you give Brigitte access to the Chip in Cyberpunk 2077.

Give Brigitte access to the chip or not in I Walk The Line

After returning to Placide and meeting Brigitte when you've dealt with the NetWatch Agent – no matter which option you picked for that part of the mission – you'll have the choice of giving Brigitte access to the chip, or "checking out your other options first". In this case, checking out your other options simply pauses the mission until you come back.

If you select the option to walk away then you'll leave Brigitte, saying you're not that desperate yet. The I Walk The Line mission will be complete and the Transmission objective will start, which is the next mission with Brigitte in the main story. It's basically a way of breaking the mission progress to go do other things, with the main objective to "return to Brigitte to accept her offer." The talk of 'other options' ultimately doesn't go anywhere - you just get the chance to do something else before you accept Brigitte's proposal and head into the crypt with her.

Give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
