Adam Smasher is the secondary antagonist and the final boss of the 2020 video game Cyberpunk 2077. He is employed by Arasaka, serving as their head of security. Smasher is a full-borg Solo and rival of Morgan Blackhand, and Johnny Silverhand.
Adam Smasher was born in New York. When he grew up, in the time of The Collapse, he became the leader of his own gang, getting into conflict with the reparations. Soon, however, the army broke up his gang and he was the only survivor who enlisted in the army. After years of service, many in the navy in which he learned, fired for insubordination. Then he returned to his hometown, where he become a mercenary.
Smasher was doing well - his bold and sadistic personality attracted attention, along with a well-paid job that kept him full of weapons, drugs and womens. However, a work has come that surpassed his skills. Smasher and several other professionals were hired by the corporation to operate to steal a prototype gizmo from the competition. Adam never revealed his name or the name of the corporation he worked for, although today it is known that it was an Arasaka representative.
Mission was a failure when Smasher was shot down by rocket launcher. The rest of the solo dumped the remains of Adam's body into a backpack and took him back. Smasher flattened himself for eight minutes before stabilizing him. Everyone could communicate with him (or rather his brain in the tank) only through the interface, although in the absence of his organism, it was irretrievably damaged in the explosion. The Corp who originally hired him said it was very bad luck for a mercenary. He liked Smasher's demeanor, past, and skills, and offered him a full body conversion in exchange for a fifteen-year contract. The mercenary knew that the refusal was associated with a final death.
Working for Arasaka
Over the years that followed, Smasher not only learned to live as a full borg, but became a worshiper. He had accomplished many things that he could not even dream of as "Soft," as he used to call non-Borgs now. Among other things, the use of sports motorcycles as a melee weapon, fighting three black belts at a time with one unscrewed, and surviving a grenade blast from less than half a meter and falling from the eighth floor onto a garbage truck.
Smasher was usually used in offensive operations against competition, but was sometimes sent on program missions. During one of them, burglars stole important corporate files. He flattened two of them early, but after the third he had to chase to the center of the share. Instead of the arm, there was a Tsunami Arms Helix shotgun installed, loaded with a tape from a backpack. In the past, he would have had to take a heavy minigun with him, which probably would not catch up with the thief. When he chased her downtown, he lost sight of her in the crowd, knowing that the girl couldn't get far, opened fire on innocent shoppers. Having cleared the corridor, he scanned the floor strewn with bodies, took the floppy disks from the girl's massacred body and escaped. The entire action was described by Smasher as the essence of "the beauty of being a borgo". Nobody could associate Adam with this massacre, because he did not take any dyes for external actions and he always exchanged his face plate.
During their career, Adam Smasher and Morgan Blackhand began to quietly compete with each other. The opponent was a threat to the ideology of the Borg that "metal is better than meat." Smasher tried to challenge Blackhand to a duel, but he always ignored him, which only increased Adam's fury.
