After the car ride, speak with Jackie and decide your next move to finish the quest. You'll still get both jobs regardless of what you choose to do first during your conversation with Jackie.

The Ride Choices and Best Choice

Maelstrom or Evelyn Parker?

At the end of The Ride, you'll be given the choice to either visit the Maelstrom gang or the client for the heist, Evelyn Parker.

The fact of the matter is, you'll have to visit both of them either way. When you visit Maelstrom (and optionally visit Meredith Stout before), you'll start The Pickup. When you visit Meredith Stout, you'll start The Information. Both of these Main Quests are required to complete to begin The Heist, so there's little difference between the two options.

Best Choice: Visit Evelyn Parker First

Although either path is fine, it's slightly better to visit Elizabeth Parker and complete The Information first. Because The Information is a non-violent quest, you'll have the opportunity to pick up some gear and level up a bit with no risk. This will leave you in a better position to complete The Pickup, which is much more action-oriented and challenging.

Tips and Strategies

You Can Skip the Ride

After the conversation is over you can go ahead and skip the rest of the ride to save time.

    • In the crafting screen, would love to see a comparison between what I'm currently equipped with vs what I've selected to craft. In the Inventory screen, I have no idea where any extra weight is without going into each category (weapons, clothes, etc). Please add some sort of weight indicator next to each category so I know exactly where I seem to be overloaded. In the Map, please mark completed items (assault in progress, access points), grey out the icons or something similar?

      Ran into the same problem with Iris not wanting to get in the van (in v1.31) but coerced her into doing it by backing the van up into her. She'll jump out of the way if you try to ram her, but backing up and bumping her teleports her to the side of the van, where she'll get in.
