Objective Icon.pngMeet with Panam.
Go to the Aldecaldos' camp and talk to Panam. Follow her over to the car and go over the plan to handle the Raffens. Take the shard from Mitch and survey the camp.
Objective Icon.pngObserve the camp perimeter.→Head to the Raffen Shiv Camp.
Scan the tire tracks then the truck when prompted then disconnect after you see everything. Get in the car with Panam and drive to the camp. Going with her will push you towards her romance option if you're playing as male V.
3 Riders On The Storm Free SaulEnlarge
Objective Icon.pngGet inside the camp.
Head over to the camp and take out the enemies in any way you'd like. Saul is in the cellar so head into the main building when you can and go downstairs. Take down whoever else gets in your way and free Saul.
Objective Icon.pngLeave the building.
With Saul good to go, you need to get out back to Panam. If you have 9 points in Technical Ability you can open the gate to the quick exit, otherwise you need to go back the way you came. If you took out everyone before coming to get Saul then either choice is safe. Go to the van and get inside.

When you arrive at your destination, go inside the building with Panam and Saul to escape the storm. Go into the backroom and repair the breaker to get the power back on. Head around the back of the house and interact with the fusebox to fix the heat, then go back inside. Side with Panam in the conversation if you're trying to romance her.
6 Riders On The Storm Talk To PanamEnlarge

All Completion Routes

Best Completion Route

Route Rating
Ground Floor
Use Technical on the ventilation system ★★★★★
Electrical substation ★★★★
Green container ★★★
Guns Blazing ★★

The best route to take in this Side Job is through the ventilation system, given that you have enough Tech attribute. Taking this route will let you rescue Saul without running into a single enemy.

Stealth Route Guides - Ground Floor

There are three stealthy approaches to this mission.

Use Technical on the Ventilation System

From the main entrance of the camp, go right until you find a ventilation system on the side. If you have sufficient Tech ability, open it to find a tunnel that will lead you to the room where Saul is. After rescuing Saul, retrace your steps and wait for Panam to complete the objective.

Electrical Substation

You can also find an electrical substation on the right side of the camp, just before you reach the ventilation system. Once inside, enter the building on your left and climb the stairs. You will run into a guard on the footbridge so wait for the right moment to take him down.

Inside the main building, go right and around it to find the stairs to the cellar where you should defeat three more guards before rescuing Saul.

Green Container

Taking this route is risky as the snipers atop of the buildings, as well as the roaming guards, can spot you if you moved at the wrong moment. From the main entrance, head left and enter the camp through a green container. Avoid the patrols and the snipers while making your way to the side of the main building where there are stairs in.

Once at the top of the building, go around the walkway until you reach the cellar where Saul is.

Guns Blazing Route Guide

Taking this route means taking on the entire camp by yourself. Make sure to take out the snipers atop of the buildings before barging in. Storm the front gates and loot the Problem Solver Iconic Weapon from one of the guards at the entrance then mow your way down to the cellar to rescue Saul.

Obtainable Items

This list contains only rare Items and those which have a high chance of appearing.

Item How to Get
Currently UnavailableProblem Solver Wielded by one of the guards at the entrance of the Raffen Shiv camp.

Tips and Strategies

Hack Hack Hack

There are a lot of enemies in the camp, so unless you want to go in guns blazing, take advantage of cameras that will allow you to remotely quickhack and down enemies out of view. This will make getting to Saul much smoother.

Romance Guide - Panam

If you're trying to romance Panam as a male V, you must do two things to be able to get her down the line.

Side With Her During Her Argument With Saul

When she and Saul talk about selling out, make sure to side with her, she'll thank you for this the next day.

Touch Her Thigh When Prompted

Riders On The Storm Touch Panam
As you two relax and get cozy, you have the option to make a move on her by touching her thigh. She'll reject you for now, but this is to be able to romance her later on.

The Problem Solver

This SMG can be found by a large enemy guarding the front entrance of the compound.

    • 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 https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/cyberpunk-2077-walkthrough-main-story-quest-list-main-missions-order-5077 except with everything, not just the Main ones)

    • Johnny is not spawning in during the pyramid song quest when you have to talk to him.
