Killing In The Name Choices and Best Choice

Call To Nancy

This choice of reply when you call Nancy at the end of the mission will affect what reward you will be receiving.

Not exactly... If you choose this response, you will tell Nancy everything you've found out and will receive the eddies and experience.
That's right. No new information. If you choose this response, you won't tell Nancy anything and you won't be given the reward. You'll only gain experience points.

Best Choice

Not exactly... is the best choice for it rewards you with eddies as well as experience points.

Tips and Strategy

Use Fast Travel Points

Since this side quest takes place in three different districts, it will be useful to find travel points closest to the objective markers. Using vehicles or running will just take too much of your time.

Sandstorm in the Badlands

In the Badlands area where you locate the 2nd router, there's a chance that you will enter that area during a sandstorm. Visibility will be low making fighting there a little more difficult than usual. You can choose to wait this out if you are uncomfortable fighting in such conditions. It disappears fairly quickly.
