A great treasure can turn out to be a great curse. Remember that, V.
One of the fences in my territory, Leah Gladen, came into possession of some highly valuable equipment – a lockbreak device capable of jailbreaking corp cyberware (some call it a CorpCracker). This tech open doors for suits who want out but don’t want to lose function of cop-issued chrome or are looking to make an extra eddie by selling secondhand.
Leah wasn’t born yesterday. She knows what the tech is worth. She and I went back and forth, long price negotiations. We were close to reaching a deal when all contact was lost.
Your job is to find out what happened to Leah – but more importantly to get that skeleton key for me. Don’t bother reporting back until you have it. Don’t waste time.

Starting Location: Greed Never Pays
Gig: Greed Never Pays starts in Westbrook (Japantown).
Go To Leah Gladen’s Apartment
From the location above, you will have four different entrances to the apartment building you can take. The first is the least obvious. You can climb up the scaffolding to the side of the building to enter the apartment by opening the shutters.
Otherwise, you can hack the elevator in the lobby, reboot the optics of the receptionist and steal the access card to the apartment from the desk, or head upstairs to the apartment and open the door, providing you have 5 Technical Ability points.
Search Leah Gladen’s Apartment
Once in Leah’s apartment, look next to the mirror for a button and press it. This will open a secret door behind the vending machines in the other room.
Search The Hidden Room
Head into the other room and look on the computer in the secret room, which is now open. Read both the Skeleton Key emails.
Go To The Braindance Club Wired Head
Head back outside and travel to the Braindance Club, following the waypoint. You can either take the stairs down to the club or the elevator. Personally, the stairs allow you to take out the enemy up here and then carry his body down out of the way.
Once downstairs distract the enemy on your right with the machine and incapacitate them from behind.
Make your way to the opposite end of the corridor to enter the club.
Search Wired Head
The area you want to get to is in the back right corner. If you have the Technical Ability points required (5) you can open the door on your left. Otherwise, you will need to sneak past enemies taking them out one by one or go loud and kill everyone. There are a good half dozen enemies down here.
Once you do get to the back right corner of the club, go past the booths and into the final room.
Take Leah Gladen’s Equipment
You can find the equipment on the desk in the control room here.
Get Out Of Wired Head
Make your way out of the club the way you came in.
Deposit The Equipment At The Drop Point
Once you exit the club go back up to street level and make your way to the nearest drop point completing the gig.
This finishes Greed Never Pays gig in Cyberpunk 2077 (CP77).
