Starting Location: The Ride
Talk to Jackie
This mission starts right after Viktor finishes installing your cyberware. Go back upstairs and meet back up with Jackie.
Meet with Dex
Jackie informs you that Dex is waiting for you, and you head out on your own to meet him. When you exit the shop Regina will call you, and inform you about Cyberpsycho attacks, giving you the Psychokiller Side Job.
Get into Dex’s limo
When you reach the marked location, go to the back door of the car where the man is standing, and he lets you in.
Talk to Dex
The car ride with Dex is basically filling you in on the upcoming missions you will be doing. Choices don’t matter, you are required to get through all the important dialogue to progress.
- How they remember you- that’s all that counts. > All three options have the same outcome
- Mr. Nobodies don’t survive in Night City.
- This some sorta test?
- The job – tell me more.
- Why meet me? Why the show? > Optional
- Not at all. > Both options have the same outcome
- That’s a death sentence.
- Maelstorm – what’s the issue? > Both Maelstorm and Client options are gone through to continue the story, so doesn’t matter which you pick first.
- [Take shard]
- Who’s the woman?
- Royce guy – who is he? > Optional
- Client – tell me about her.
- Know all I need, thanks.
- [Get out] > End conversation
Call Jackie / Talk to Jackie
Jackie calls you right after you leave Dex’s car.
- He was out to work me over. > Both options have the same outcome
- Wants to check us out, see if we got what it takes.
- Then there’s the other thing.
- Royce – know anything about him? > Optional
- Visit Maelstrom first. > Next mission is marked as The Pickup
- Gonna start with the client. > Next mission is marked as The Information
Your choice in the last dialogue with Jackie only determines which of the two missions is tracked next as your objective, you still gain both Jobs regardless and can switch and do the other first if you want to.
