Mission Info: Gig type: Thievery
Objective: Steal documents incriminating Matheus Stove
Location: Kendachi Factory, El Camino Rd
Your mom ever tell you saying “two wrongs don’t make a right”? Yeah, well we’re the third one. Kendachi’s about to select a new director of some shit department or other – that part doesn’t matter. What’s important is it’s two candidates dor one gig Know where this is going right? Bingo – one of ’em is my client and he wants dirt on his new arch-nemesis Matheus Stove.
Main problem is that Stove’s the human equivalent of unseasoned, boiled scop. He’s bland, he’s boring. No bodies in his backyard, no dates with minors, nothing. But there’s no way a guy in his position in a place like Night City is 100% dire-free. I mean there’s no fuckin’ way.
Couple contracts of mine say Steve has a few strings teid to the Valentinos. You need to slip into his office and slip a few files off his computer. If we’re lucky, we get something to back up the rumors, costing Mr. Squeaky-clean Stove his shot at the promotion.

Starting Location: Race To The Top
Gig: Race to the Top starts in Santa Domingo (Arroyo).
Get Onto Kendachi Factory Area
From the location above, there are two main ways to get into the factory. You can either disable the security at the front or go around the left side of the area and force the gate open if you have 12 Body Ability Points.
Get Inside The Kendachi Factory
If you had to enter the area through the front, make your way around the right side of the compound, avoiding the enemies, disabling the security cameras, and sneaking behind the cars and vans.
At the back of this area you can force open the shutters if you have 16 Body Ability points. Otherwise, continue behind the factory to a ladder, which will be on your left. Climb up it and enter the factory through the door if you have 8 Technical Ability Points. Watch out for the enemy patrolling up here though.
Now, if you opened the gate, disable the security camera and take a left to find a ladder which you can climb, leading you to a door inside the factory, which requires 8 Technical Ability Points. Be careful of an enemy patrolling up here.
If neither of the options above are available to you, you will need to sneak through the front entrance by distracting guards and using the cover to quickly dive inside.
Get Inside Matheus’ Office
If you came in through the walkway, you can easily find the office just after you turn the corner. Otherwise, if you came through the front door, stick to the left side of the are and distract enemies using machines opposite you, so that they face away from you.
Do the same for the final enemy who is opposite the ladder and conveniently next to a machine. Then, climb the ladder, which will be directly on your left to the office.
Find Incriminating Data On Matheus
Interact with the computer in this office to find the data and steal it.
Leave The Kendachi Factory Area
Exit the factory through the door which required Technical Ability Points (any build can open it from the inside) and make your way back around the factory compound the same way you came in, avoiding the enemies and cameras if they are still activated.
Once outside the Gig will be complete.
