Your investigation involves V, right up to Pacifica’s mysterious online gamer gang: Voodoo boy. Now that you have attracted their attention, they have offered you a job Cyberpunk 2077’s “I Walk the Line” Mission.
After the first meeting with Voodoo Boy’s burly Lieutenant Placide, leave Barty’s hotel-just like you, admire Rutger Hauer’s role as Roger Barty in Blade Runner.
Your task is to take out the Netwatch agents stationed in the Grand Empire Mall and teach them not to trample on Voodoo’s territory so boldly.
Cyberpunk 2077 I’m off line mission
From the Voodoo Boys surveillance station across the road, take stock of the Grand Imperial Mall and plan the route to enter. Netwatch has invited the help of animals (a group of “fitness” bodybuilders) to grab GIM (more like a gym, isn’t it?).
It is easiest to follow the signs to reach the back door. There are four animals outside, you can go out or sneak into the back door. They deserve a lot of credibility on the street, so if you have a quick trick to do this quietly, it’s worth it.
At the corner, there are two more animals, and three on the other side of the back door, but when you pass through the loading door, these three animals are easier to slip through.
Inside the GIM, climb to the upper level and look at the gate on the right. Be careful not to warn security guards and cameras in the corridor to the left of the gate.
Now, you have a big choice: speak loudly, or stay invisible. It really doesn’t matter whether you go all out, other than feeling sneaky and cool.
It’s tough, but it’s much easier to have 10 techniques. If you choose to shoot, Placide will be very frustrated, but you can skip the boss fight in the back.
To take the path of invisibility, use Technical Ability 10 and you can pass through the front door, otherwise, you must stroll down the corridor with the guards. If you can, when you open the door, a vortex will appear on the left side of your room, but either way, this path will lead to some stairs leading to the next level of GIM and to the escalator.
Look to the left and rush to a nearby guard, laying the ground.
You need to slip away two more guards in the area. Trying to go straight down the escalator is much easier than holding them down, because their partners know the trick to look at your body magically and growl at you.
Crouch walked to the escalator and went straight to the task mark. You will be behind the animal, but you can’t see it.
Look to the left at the bottom of the escalator and pass through the food kiosk. Moving on, please stick it carefully behind the lid.
Once you approach the van, the markings will change.
To do this, you need to use the scanner to deactivate the turret on the right and slip around the three guardrails next to the truck.
This is not as difficult as you might expect to get around the other side of the undiscovered van. Take a step towards the far wall of the shopping center, give the truck a wide berth, and go around to its blind side. There, you can follow Placide’s instructions.
At this point, when the Netwatch agent tries to talk to you, you will hear a misguided path in this task.
After that, he will close the way forward and you will have to climb the scaffold up to the right.
Be careful, because animals will gather in this area. In order to avoid detection, you may have to quickly crack some animals in the path, but when the method is clear, you only need to take a break directly from the top of the scaffolding.
Wait for the opening moment or surreptitiously chop off the animals, then enter the cinema. Through these doors, you will see Matilda AKA Sasquatch, the owner of the area.
Hiding around the corner, scan her and throw an advantage with a brazen quickhack. If you keep your distance near that corner and keep her away, she can easily take it out.
Approaching the location of the cinema at the far end of the display room, Placide will open the shutters.
Should you support Netwatch or Placide?
Go to the screening room and put a leather case on the weapon. If you have a gunshot, he will attack, so if you want to hear his voice, please put it in your pants.
When he surrendered, the Netwatch agent told you that the company had frozen Brigitte, the leader of Voodoo Boys, in cyberspace, and you had been sent there to break through.
He tells you to run the system diagnostics to see if Voodoo Boys has added a virus to you and is setting up your virus.
If you continue to listen, he will say that if you allow him to process the data, he will release Brigitte.
So this gives you a difficult choice: Should you use Netwatch, or stick to Voodoo Boys?
Without spoiling the spoiler, what the Netwatch agent said is technically correct, but will not negatively affect the story. As Johnny said, Corpus is not the most cautious character, and you should probably not be proud of their promise.
Obviously, if you support Netwatch, Voodoo Boys will not be happy, and if you want, you must complete an additional boss battle. If you do not support Netwatch, you can choose whether to engage in a boss fight.
Whichever way you choose, the story basically reaches the same point in the same way. However, in my opinion, if you stick to the original agreement with Placide, your troubles will be reduced.
After the cutscenes, go outside and hitchhike back to Batty’s to talk to Placide.
He is either surprised or angry to see you, but Brigitte will step in soon. Talk to her and you can learn more about Relic biochips.
Asked her for help, she agreed.
This started a short new task: transfer.
Follow Brigitte into the basement and continue the conversation. When you arrive at the ice bath, please jump in and prepare to travel.
This part of the content is very simple, if I spell it out, it may be very troublesome. Follow the task markers and talk to the relevant characters until the dialogue runs out.
There are no permanent choices within the network, so you can do what you want.
Nearly the end, you will find whether you are standing with the support of Netwatch or Voodoo Boys, and get new clues for investigating holy objects.
When you wake up, you will talk to Brigitte again or have to answer Placide.
If you are confused about Voodoo Boys, you can take revenge here because it provides you with the virus first and can fight for your own way out as needed.
Either way, return to the seaside streets of Pacifica and the exploration will end.
