All Completion Routes

Best Completion Route

Route Rating
Deactivating Security Systems ★★★★★
Hacking and Avoiding the Security Systems ★★★★

The best way to get into the farm is by deactivating the security system in the farm in the house nearby.

Farm Routes

There are two methods to get into the farm. One is to just sneak or hack through the defense systems. Another way is to deactivate the security systems in the house.

Deactivating Security Systems

You will need to first get into the house to deactivate the security. There are two turrets in the front. You can avoid them or deactivate/destroy them to make it easier. You can get in through shutters that require Technical 5 on the right side of the house or through a door on the left. The security controls are in a secret room in the bedroom on the second floor. The switch to open it is under the desk.

After deactivating you can run to the ladder on the left side of the barn.

Hack or Sneak Past Security

There are two turrets in front of the house and two turrets in front of the farm. These are the primary obstacles you will have to worry about. You can hack and deactivate or destroy them and then only worry about the mines. Have your scanner open to making it easier to see the mines and head to the ladder on the left side of the barn.

Tips and Strategies

Entering The Lab

Open A Door With Technical Skill

There's a door at the side of the building that requires 12 Technical Points to open.

Climb To The Back

The Hunt How To Enter The Lab
You can climb to the back of the building by jumping atop the dumpster and the food truck in the picture above, which are found on the side of the building. Next, climb up the ladder next to the closed shutter labeled NCPD. You should find an accessible window on the second floor.

Surviving Edgewood Barn

Deactivate at least one of the turrets with a QuickHack so that you have an opening to sneak past into the house. If possible, deactivate both turrets guarding the house.

Romance Guide - River

Always Side With River

During the conversation with Dr. Packard be sure to take River's side when she goes off on him, so choose the following dialogue options when they appear:
Hasn't let me down yet.
I wanna see for myself.
These are timed choices so be sure to pick fast. You will have one more choice later with Johnny that affects this, saying River's all right.

Hit Me With a Beer

During the car, ride choose Sign me up for that beer. when River mentions it.


When you view the braindance, scan all of the clues. Finding all of the clues will have River drive directly to the farm, but in the chance that you don't, choose Edgewood when prompted or you won't be able to move onto the final quest.

Does anyone know if I can enter the farm after the mission? I've forgot about the tinker bell.

4 Anonymousover 3 years

If you don’t disable the turrets on the farm when you first arrive with river he won’t follow you and you can’t press the button to open secret room. I had to re-load it again for it to work.
