Choices and Outcomes Guide
There are several moments during quests where you will have to make choices that have future impacts on how the game's story plays out. They often have a resulting Karma or Reputation effect in addition to altering the story. These moments and outcomes are sorted by the Quests they appear in and are as follows:
- The Deserters: During this portion of the quest you will encounter the leader, Boris. A conversation with Boris Ward will occur and a fight will ensue. Once Boris is on the ropes you will be given 3 options: Let him get away, arrest him or eliminate him. Report back to Eliza with the results. If the deserters got away, including Boris, she will not be thrilled and the objective will fail and you will lose reputation with Abundance and the Army, but you will earn 2 Karma. If Boris is arrested rather than killed, she will say the ASC will now have to face an internal investigation. Making her completely happy requires killing everyone. A successful completion will increase your reputation with the Abundance army by 1. If you kill everyone, David Ward will leave you, which will unlock an objective to find him.
- Break the Opposition: Enter the final hallway towards the objective marker to trigger a cutscene with Bulgakov. After your conversation you may opt to keep the bomb and let her go or arrest her. If you take it and let her go you gain 2 karma and 10 rep with The Opposition. If you arrest her, you will fight, and then be given the option to arrest or kill her. Arresting her gets you her gun and you lose 5 rep with the Opposition. Killing her nets her dagger and gun, and you lose 10 rep with the Opposition and 2 Karma.
- Captain Eliza: During this portion you must speak with Eliza as she goes over all the important choices you've made until now. These are the list of questions she asks and the potential results. How you answer may not matter since it's your choices that will stick. The truth always comes out!

This decision will pop back up later when Dandolo is going over your choices. If you attack you will have to face Technomancers. You will earn +3 Rep with Noctis after you get all the clothes.
