When you arrive at the power plant, jack into the gun and take down the drones. Get out of the car when prompted and interact with each terminal to overcharge them. Get back in the car to get out of there.

When the car stops, jack into the drone and scan the area. Once done get out of the car and head to the crash site to take out the turret and the Kang Tao operatives. The control panel for the turrets is on the right side of the AV.

With the turrets deactivated, Panam will come to join you. Open up the AV and deal with Mitch who has been taken hostage by the pilot. Talk to Panam and Mitch to complete the quest.

Tips and Strategies

Use Electrical Damage On the Kang Tao Operatives

Cyberpunk 2077 - Use Electrical Damage
The Kang Tao operatives are robots so they have a weakness to electrical damage. Any weapons or Quickhacks that deal electrical damage can take them out super quick.

Getting Hellman's Location

You can get Hellman's location right away by interrogating the man holding Mitch hostage. Simply say I just want Hellman, then tell him I'm losing my patience.

Romance Guide - Panam

This is the beginning of opportunites to romance Panam.

Offer to Share One Room

    • 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.
