How to Unlock Killing In The Name

Multiple times during the course of the game, you will be receiving seemingly random messages from Bartmoss Collective. It will continue to do so until you receive an email accessible via your computer in your apartment.

Once the email is read, the mission will update. But, for it to progress, you need to accomplish the following missions:

Once these missions are complete, the rest of the mission will unlock after a call to Nancy Bartley.

If you fail any of the aforementioned missions or make choices that will not unlock the next quest in the mission chain, this mission will not progress as well.

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

The first choice is the most obvious choice of course as it rewards you with eddies as well as experience points.

Tips and Strategy

Use Fast Travel Points

Cyberpunk 2077 Killing In The Name 12.pngEnlarge

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

Cyberpunk 2077 Killing In The Name 11.pngEnlarge

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.

    • In the crafting screen, would love to see a comparison between what I'm currently equipped with vs what I've selected to craft. In the Inventory screen, I have no idea where any extra weight is without going into each category (weapons, clothes, etc). Please add some sort of weight indicator next to each category so I know exactly where I seem to be overloaded. In the Map, please mark completed items (assault in progress, access points), grey out the icons or something similar?

    • If I fail or cancel out of an access point, the mini-game will not load up, you'll just get the jack in/Jack out animations but the mini-game will no longer appear.
