Area: Westbrook (Japantown)
Quest Giver: Brendan
Requirement: Complete Main Job “Playing for Time”
Reward: XP / Street Cred XP
Mission Info: All right, so I’m feeling like a sucker for this story. Do you really think Brendan is just spitting out the sentences it was programmed for? The stuff some marketing guru thinks customers want to hear? That’d be pretty fucked even by Night City standards. In any case, we won’t know until you find him.

Starting Location: Coin Operated Boy
I can see clearly now
Brendan is a seemingly sentient vending machine, that can be found directly to the right of the steps of Megabuilding H8 in Japantown.
He has a few different events that you can engage in when there’s a Side Job marker on the map. In the first one where you directly interact with him, he asks you to push a trash bin out from in front of him so he can see the road better. You need 4 BODY attribute to move it.
If you want to trigger the next event with Brendan now, you can fast travel away using the nearby terminal, skip time forward 24 hours, then fast travel back.
Ask about Theo
Next time you come back, Brendan will be talking with a girl named Theo. After she leaves speak to Brendan.
The third time you come back, there will be a person vandalizing Brendan. You can wait for them to talk to you and scare them off, or just grab them immediately and knock them out, then speak to Brendan again.
Talk to Theo
The fourth time you come back, Brendan will be gone and you will find Theo standing in his spot crying. Ask her where he went, and she’ll let you know about the service location he was apparently taken to.
Go to the service point
The service point will be marked on your map in a location in the Glen.
Talk to the clerk [Optional]
At the service location go inside, and you can speak to the clerk and ask about Brendan.
You can bribe the clerk or show him you know what you’re doing with 15 TECHNICAL ABILITY, or force your way through the door to the right. If you force your way through the door, you need to deal with a turret.
Talk to Brendan
In the next room, respond to Brendan how you want. There isn’t a way to stop him from being updated.
Talk to Theo
After you are finished talking to Brendan and he gets updated, go back to Megabuilding H8 and let Theo know what happened to him to complete this job.
This finishes Coin Operated Boy side quest job in Cyberpunk 2077 (CP77).
