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.

At the end of this mission, Jackie will ask you which objective you'll do first. You can choose to meet with Evelyn Parker first which will lead to The Information quest happening first.
4b The Pickup Walkthrough

At the end of this mission, Jackie will ask you which objective you'll do first. You can choose Maelstrom which will lead to The Pickup quest happening first.

The Ride Choices and Best Choice

Choose Evelyn Parker

If you choose to meet with Evelyn Parker first, you'll be end up doing the The Information quest which is less combat heavy than the alternative quest The Pickup. Keep in mind, either way you'll end up doing both quests as they are both required to complete The Heist main quest.

Choose Maelstrom

If you choose Maelstrom, you'll end up going through The Pickup quest first which is more combat focused. Keep in mind, choosing Maelstrom first does not skip The Information quest, as this quest will activate when you visit Meredith Stout later. Both quests must be completed to access The Heist main quest.

Best Choice: Visit Evelyn Parker First

Although either path is fine, it's slightly better to visit Elizabeth Parker and complete The Information first since it 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.
