A Cysty-Dance with Death is one of the Side Quests in The Outer Worlds. Side Quests are optional quests that players can chose to complete in order to obtain special rewards, XP, or reputation.
Clive Lumbergh, owner of the C&P Factory, has made a counter offer to the price SubLight's Catherine Malin put on his life. If you betray her, he'll reward you.

A Cysty-Dance with Death Walkthrough
The easiest way to kill Catherine is to Sneak Attack her from behind and hide in corner until the guards are no longer alert. Killing her will net you 12000 XP. However, if you do this you will Botch the Slaughterhouse Clive quest, and you cannot complete both of these quests. Additionally, all SubLight personnel in Monarch will become hostile to you and you gain massive negative Reputation with SubLight Salvage & Shipping.
You can take the cans of Boarst off the table in the next room and speak to Clive about them to gain 625 Bit Cartridges.
