The Cyberpunk 2077 interrogate Woodman objective at the end of Automatic love can be done peacefully by threatening to go to the media - any other choice will result in conflict and combat with Woodman, forcing you to kill or be killed. Waiting at the end of the Clouds brothel with all the "Dolls", Woodman needs to have the information gotten out of him, one way or another - and you can interrogate him via non-violent dialogue if you're smart about your dialogue choices and understand how he thinks. Get it wrong, and you'll have to fight and kill him - but we can show you how to interrogate Woodman properly in Cyberpunk 2077.

If you gave up on stealth and murdered your way to Woodman's office he'll have shut the door and, after a brief chat through it, open it all guns blazing. If you stealthed it and arrived unseen you'll be able to talk to him (go through the blue door as the glass one won't open) although almost all the conversation options will still end in a fight. As you left all your weapons in a locker on the way in this can be tricky if you haven't picked up any guns along the way, or have Mantis Blades literally up your sleeves. 

If you do fight him the moment you meet him, or later, you can get the info you need off the computer that will direct you to a ripperdoc called Fingers. You can also offer to upgrade the computer system with an intelligence of 7 or higher and get access to the info that way.

You'll also be able to loot a decent gun from Woodman once he's downed. You can't actually kill him here, no matter what you do and he'll be back later in the game. 

Let's assume you're here to talk it out though. These are your initial dialogue options: 

  • You look like a reasonable man - let's make a deal. 
  • You don't understand what's at stake here. 
  • Tell me where Evelyn is. 

If you pick the option to make a deal you'll open up a second choice. 

  • I'll pay for info. 
  • Sorry I'm done being nice. 

If you're done being nice, you'll start combat and have to kill him so offer to pay for info. He'll refuse but it will open these options and continue the conversation. 

  • You look worse than that. 
  • Just want to make a donation. 
  • Sorry done being nice. 

If you say he 'looks worse than that' or that you're done being nice, again, you'll have to fight him. So say you want to make a donation and you'll get the final options.

  • I'll tell the media everything.
  • Your bosses should know how you treat customers
  • Could end you with my bare hands.
  • Let's not make this any harder than it has to be. 

The option to pick here is to threaten to go to the media. Do that and Woodman will give you what you need peacefully and let you out the back way via an elevator. Don't worry about letting him go though as you'll will get to kill him later if you keep talking to Judy.

Any other option will eventually lead to combat. You might chat for a but eventually he'll say he's getting tired and pull a gun. Johnny can also interject and suggest threatening to expose embezzlement, which is a guess on his part and brushed off by Woodman. Basically keep him chill until you the media option comes up and you'll get what you want without any hassle.
