Mission Info: There’s this kid – folks call him Joe. Red Joe. Now, this Joe kid has talent, knows his hooks and jabs. I swear he could knock a horse’s teeth out. Point is, kid’s got what it takes to go pro. Problem is, coaches aren’t easy to come by in the Badlands. But lo and behold! Word is a next-gen sparring bot’s landed in a scrapheap there – still in working order. That’s city folk for ya – second a piece of tech glitches, it gets tossed out in the trash. Soft included. Anyway, back to the bot. Find it and download its software before they recycle it into metal straws or whatever it is NC people like. P.S. Oh and one more thing – the guy that runs the landfill? Watch out for him. Real piece of work.
- Find the broken bot
- Go to the broken bot’s location
- Pull the shard from the bot
- Deposit the shard in the Drop Point
Starting Location: Sparring Partner
Gig: Sparring Partner starts in the eastern Badlands.
Find the broken bot
This job can be extremely short if you want to waste a bunch of money or threaten the junk dealer’s life.
Alternately you can sneak into the junkyard and take the shard from the bot covertly. Go past the junk dealer’s trailer and you’ll reach a gate to the restricted area. In the distance you’ll see the van that contains the bot you’re looking for.
Go to the broken bot’s location
To steal the shard, head back to the front gate and turn right, walking along the outside of the wall. You’ll find a line of shipping containers that will give you a elevated vantage point to spot the van.
Make sure there are no guards in the area, then make your way across the junked cars towards the van.
Pull the shard from the bot
Sneak up behind the van and pull the shard, then turn around and go out the same way you came in.
Deposit the shard in the Drop Point
Just down the road is the drop point to drop off the shard and close the gig.
This finishes Sparring Partner gig in Cyberpunk 2077 (CP77).
