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.

    • I'd really like to see a flowchart with all the Main Quests, Side Quests, and Gigs that exist so we can easily see what you need to do before unlocking XYZ quest (kind of like they did here except with everything, not just the Main ones)

    • Random damage ramp in enemies/damage reduction for the player. Randomly, I would be one shot by low level enemies while only dishing out double digits. A save roll back and reload fixed the issue, but randomly I would fall into same situation leading to all damage becoming one shot kill, even with 400+ HP and a bunch of armor.
