Payoff is the seventh cutscene that occurs in Entry Point. It takes place on January 1st, 2017.
The Freelancer is sitting on a table in an old shed. Jackdaw opens the door to the shed, with the Freelancer picking up and aiming a gun at him. Jackdaw jokes about their "jumpiness", referring to them as kid. The Freelancer then lowers the gun as Jackdaw walks over to the wall nearest to them. He then talks about their performance and orders the Freelancer to stay in hiding. Finally, Jackdaw ominously speaks about the shadow war almost being over.
[Scene: An isolated shed in an unknown location. Jackdaw walks in through the side door and The Freelancer quickly aims a pistol at him.]
Jackdaw: Getting jumpy, kid? Good. You'll live longer.
[Jackdaw places a bag on the table next to the Freelancer.]
Jackdaw: You're doing good out there.
Keep your head down, stay in hiding. You know what happens if Halcyon catches up to you.
It's over soon. Can you feel it? One way or another, the end is coming.
I can hardly wait.
- This cutscene was previously named "Allegiance" until it was changed to Payoff on November 7th, 2018.
