Falco is a character from the Cyberpunk 2077 universe, originally appearing in the anime Cyberpunk Edgerunners. He’s an ex-Nomad wheelman and a dependable mercenary known for his ties with Maine’s and David’s crew.

Falco plays a minor yet pivotal role in the side mission “Over the Edge,” helping V locate David’s jacket. Characterized by his strength, mental toughness, and signature weapon – the Techtronika RT-46 Burya, Falco embodies the survivalist spirit of the Cyberpunk world. 

What Is Falco’s Role

Falco does a small cameo role in the side mission, Over the Edge. The cameo relates to sending a message to V in the side job. It happened when V tried to contact the local fixer Muamar Reyes, and he, in turn, messaged Falco for help. Soon after, Falco messaged V personally, telling him not to look for his crew. However, through messages I discovered while playing, Falco gave V David’s jacket whereabouts. Nevertheless, both never got in touch with each other physically.

Falco’s Relationship With David

Falco didn’t play a significant role like the rest of Maine’s initial squad, but he was still an important character who worked as a reliable driver for David to aid him on dangerous missions. When Maine’s initial crew divided, David picked up the pieces that let Falco join forces with him and genuinely show his potential and skill.

Once Falco and David were united, they shared an easy-going brotherly relationship. David and Falco knew they could rely on each other for their needs. David believed Falco could help him and Rebecca in their dangerous endeavors as a driver. 

David also believed that Falco was ultimately the one who could bring Lucy to safety. He was a Nomad wheelman, a skilled driver, and an accurate shooter. However, when David died, Falco became isolated.

Falco has a stylish cowboy appearance, courtesy of his robust voice and orthodox cowboy-like attire. Although his mustache looks charming and mighty, his power is something his enemies fear. He has excellent strength to handle his foes’ bullets and powerful punches. In my opinion, he has a mentally tough personality with a strong physical appearance that deserves recognition.

Falco’s relationship with his weapon, the Techtronika RT-46 Burya, is almost symbiotic in nature; in the same way, many Edgerunners develop a bond with their preferred tech. The Burya isn’t just a weapon for Falco; it’s an extension of his being, an unwavering symbol of his resilience, strength, and ruthless efficiency.

The Burya is a powerhouse, a quad-barrel, double-action revolver capable of instantly firing charged rounds. It’s a weapon that demands respect, not only from its wielder but from those on the receiving end of its barrels. A perfect match for Falco, a hardened mercenary and ex-Nomad wheelman with the physical strength and mental toughness to handle the weapon’s demanding requirements.

The Burya also represents Falco’s role within the Edgerunner crew. Like the Burya, Falco is a reliable and robust force, a protector, and a deterrent. He’s the backbone of the crew, just as the Burya is often the last line of defense in a fight.

What Happens To Falco After The End Of Cyberpunk Edgerunners

Only two mercenary company associates return alive at the end of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. These two are Lucy and Falco. Lucy went to the moon, but Falco’s whereabouts remain unknown. He might have gone to the moon, but no one can confirm it.

Falco is a character not to miss. An ex-Nomad wheelman, he’s strong, tough, and armed with his trusted weapon, the Techtronika RT-46 Burya. Although he only appears in a side mission, ‘Over the Edge’, his role is vital. He helps players locate David’s jacket and stands as a trusted part of David’s crew.

What I Think About Falco

My hours of Cyberpunk 2077 (Steam ID: LIONT4MER)

Being an avid anime watcher and a general fan of Cyberpunk 2077, with over 100+ hours in the latest Phantom Liberty DLC, Falco is a character I wished I got to meet in-game despite having seen his events unfold in the Netflix anime. If you ask me, it would’ve made the natural crossover of both the anime and game seem much cooler had Falco given V David’s Jacket in person at a discreet location.

Despite his minor role, he makes a significant impact, leaving his mark in the game and on players. Falco’s whereabouts after the game, however, remain a mystery.
