Machine Gun is a Side Job in Cyberpunk 2077 (CP77). This walkthrough will guide you through all steps of the Machine Gun Side Quest.
Quest Giver: Skippy
Requirement: Complete Main Job Playing For Time
Reward: €$7420, 570XP, Street Cred
Mission Info: So, what, you’re giving away Skippy to Regina? Too bad. Not every day you find a gun you can share your deepest and darkest with. And have it reciprocate, that is. On the other hand, I get you… Already got enough voices in your head, amirite?
- Take Skippy to Regina Jones
- Talk to Regina
- Set Skippy Down
- Talk to Regina
Starting Location: Machine Gun
This side job has an unusual structure. There are several steps to complete before the job will show up in your Journal, so you might be working on the job for a while before you even know it. First of all, head to the alley at the side job waypoint and you’ll find a body lying near a gun in a padded case, emblazoned with the improbable name “Skippy”.
Upon picking it up, you’ll discover that the smart pistol is a little smarter than advertised. Featuring an AI “Skippy” prompts you on your first interaction to select either “Stone Cold Killer” (lethal), or “Puppy Loving Pacifist” (non-lethal) mode.
A short time after killing/not-killing 50 enemies with Skippy, when you are out of combat it will inform you that it has gathered enough data and will now flip over to the other mode that you didn’t choose initially. This mode will then lock, permanently setting to this other option. If you initially chose the non-lethal option however, you will have the option of telling Skippy that “killing is wrong” and it will stay in “Puppy Loving Pacifist” mode.
After 48 hours in-game time have passed, eventually Skippy will inform you that it has recovered the identity of its previous owner, none other than your friendly neighborhood fixer, Regina Jones.
Only after Skippy asks you to return it to Regina will Machine Gun actually register as a new job in your Journal, and come up with your first actual objective.
Take Skippy to Regina Jones
Technically you could just keep Skippy, but to complete the job you need to take it back to Regina. Follow the waypoint to Regina’s apartment and you’ll find her waiting inside.
Talk to Regina
Ask Regina about Skippy and she’ll be very happy to get him back, so it sounds like it might be worth some eddies.
Prompt Regina for your payout, and you’ll get a fairly hefty sum of €$7420 for your troubles.
This finishes Machine Gun side quest job in Cyberpunk 2077 (CP77).
