The Highwayman is a Side Job in Cyberpunk 2077 (CP77). This walkthrough will guide you through all steps of The Highwayman Side Quest.
Area: Santo Domingo (Rancho Coronado)
Quest Giver: N/A
Requirement: Complete Main Job “The Ride”
Reward: Nazare “Itsumade” motorcycle
Mission Info: There’s a still of some young guy in the garage – the heartbreaker type. Emails on the computer are from a certain James – don’t have to be a genius to connect the dots. Might be worth looking for our Romeo – especially in Japantown. Got a feeling the still was snapped there. Wouldn’t surprise me – kids go on dates there all the time. Shit… it always starts off so cute, doesn’t it? Rarely ever ends that way.
Josie hid the Tyger boss’s bike somewhere in the city, near the All Foods factory in Maelstrom turf. Said to look for a “ghost horse”. All right then… Think of it like a scavenger hunt, though not the kind fixers in Night City usually pay for.
Josie… Pretty name. Cute girl. Ugly end. This Tyger from the still… better have a word with him, V. Can’t let slide what he did to this poor girl.
Another mystery, another missing person in Night City. Used to be the cops would put out a search for people like her. Today, her fate’s in your hands.
- Interact with the computer
- Find James
- Find out what happened to Josie
- Find James and confront him
- Find the stolen Tyger Claw bike
Starting Location: The Highwayman
Interact with the computer
This Side Job doesn’t actually appear marked on your map at all, you need to go find it. To start, go to the housing area directly below the dam in Rancho Coronado, then on the street looking towards the weapons shop there is the below building with a garage on the lower floor.
Inspect the bike on the right, then interact with the computer on the bench on the left to pick up a photo and officially start this side job.
Your first objective is to find a man named James, the guy in the photo V picked up. To locate him, you can travel to the JAPANTOWN WEST fast travel point, then travel south towards the large intersection, where you can find the area with the blue benches around the large tree on the east side of the road.
Sitting on one of the benches you can find James.
Interact with him to show him the photo, but he won’t really have much information for you about where Josie is.
Find out what happened to Josie
Next, you need to travel to the Glen. You can fast travel to the METRO: GLEN NORTH fast travel point, then go to the drop point directly east of it.
From the drop point look on the ground to find blood you can scan, which leads around the corner down the street.
Go into the alleyway to the left to find a body, which turns out to be Josie. Grab the shard off the ground.
Find James and confront him
You have James’ location marked on your map now, go back there and speak to him.
You can choose how you respond to him here. If you choose the second option he attacks you, and you have to shoot him. If not, he will sit and you can leave.
Find the stolen Tyger Claw bike
You will now need to find the location of the bike Josie had stolen. In Northside, go to the ALL FOODS PLANT fast travel point.
From the fast travel terminal facing the drop point, look to the right to the yard with the shipping containers stacked in it, go to that yard.
Here there is a garage door with a keypad beside it. To open it, you need to enter the code o214 (the date that was on the bench beside James). You enter it on the keypad by aiming the hand cursor and pressing / to select the numbers.
Once you enter the code the door opens, and you are rewarded with the Nazare “Itsumade” bike to keep. A nice reward that makes this quest well worth it.
This finishes The Highwayman side quest job in Cyberpunk 2077 (CP77).
