Area: Heywood (The Glen)
Quest Giver: Sebastian ‘Padre” Ibarra
Requirement: Street Cred Level 1
Reward: €$3170 + 678 XP + 1524 Street Cred
Mission Info: Gig Type: Thievery
Objective: Steal data on Javier Alvarado’s embezzlement activity
Location: El Pinche Pollo Restaurant
Details: Its election season so everyone’s got a political stick up their ass. Can’t say I like it but it is good for biz.
Young woman came up to me, claims to be the media. She must be a wizard with words because I’ve never seen a mediajock like her burn so much cash.
She’s fishing for dirt on the mayor’s adviser, Javier Alvarado. Says Alvarado is bezzling public money, padding the Valentino’s pockets.
Proof? Apparently found in the office of El Pinche Pollo, some Valentino-run restaurant. Have a look there. This media seemed confident of her sources.
And you know how this rolls. She fronts the eddies, we don’t ask who she “writes” for.
- Enter the restaurant
- Get inside the office
- Find the incriminating evidence on the mayor’s adviser
- Leave the restaurant
Starting Location: Fifth Column
Gig: Fifth Column starts in Heywood (The Glen).
Enter the restaurant
Head to the marker on the map above and you will get a call from Sebastian right outside the restaurant. Walk right inside the restaurant with no weapons out and you won’t get attacked.
Get inside the office
Head to the left side of the room as soon as you walk in and disable the camera straight ahead and distract the guard using quickhacks on the radio to the right:
Once the guard is up head through the door and up the staircase but there will be another camera at the top of the stairs, disable it and head straight through the door under it into the office and hide directly behind the barrels. Poke out and use the radio to distract the guard:
Find the incriminating evidence on the mayor’s advisor
Once the guard is looking at the radio sneak behind him and disable the camera in the office but then immediately seek safety behind the barrels again while the camera is disabling:
Once the camera is disabled the guard will go sit under the camera facing away from you, you can use the television to distract the guard here:
While the guard is distracted head over to the computer and download the evidence.
Leave the restaurant
As soon as the data is done downloading back up back to behind the barrels for safety until the guard is no longer aware of your presence. Once it is safe exit through the door you came in and head back down the stairs. Open the door back to the lobby but do NOT walk out yet or you will be caught. Instead hack the same radio to distract the guard who is once again sitting next to the door to make it out past him without being caught:
Once he is up and walking towards the radio you can walk right out of the restaurant without anyone saying anything. Once outside Sebastian will call you ending the gig.
This finishes Fifth Column gig in Cyberpunk 2077 (CP77).
