1. Reply to Ashlay's Message

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty - Reply to Ashlay

Check your phone and reply to Ashlay. You'll learn that he's a netrunner contracted by Charon Exotics, the same company who owns the tracking station transceivers you messed up during Birds With Broken Wings and the car used by the Cassel twins during I've Seen That Face Before.

Ashlay will ask you to wipe all the data in the car and will let you keep it if you help him.

2. Head to the Elevator

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty - Head to the Elevator

Follow the map marker leading inside the stadium and make your way to a corridor on the right. You'll find a room with an elevator and a camera.

If you brush off Ashlay during your initial chat, the map marker will not appear, but he will contact you again if you come across the elevator.

3. Read Ashlay's Message

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty - Ashlay

Once you're near the elevator, Ashlay will hack the camera and contact you again. Read and wait for his texts for further instructions.

4. Prepare for Stealth

Ashlay will tell you will be sneaking around in the garage to reach the car. He will also mention that he will hack the elevator so no one will be able to use it while you're inside.

You will have no way out until you finish this side quest, so prepare all the things you need to be stealthy, like equipping an Optical Camo or attaching silencers to your weapons.

When you're ready, head inside the elevator and go down.

5. Head to the Garage

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty - Head to the Garage

Step out of the elevator and head into the storage area. Ashlay will hack all surveillance cameras, so you'll only have to sneak your way through the BARGHEST soldiers patrolling the room.

Sneak your way towards the garage door located at the other side of the area. Eliminate the guards by either sneaking up on them and hiding their bodies inside containers or use a silenced gun or a throwing knife to kill them.

6. Climb Behind the Truck

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty - Climb Behind the Truck

Open the door and head inside the garage. Ashlay will message you to ride the incoming truck, which you should follow since it will take you near the vehicle.

Hide behind the bigger parked truck and wait for the smaller track to pass by. It will then be stopped by the guards, which is your chance to scurry towards it, climb behind, and hide.

Simply wait for the truck to reach its destination. Do make sure to crouch while you're hiding, as you will be detected if you are standing up.

7. Wipe the Car's Data

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty - Wipe the Data

Wait for the truck to stop, then jump down and approach the Charon parked behind the truck. Sneak your way towards the car as you can still get detected here.

Go inside the car and wait for Ashlay's text and follow his instructions to wipe the car's data logs.

8. Drive Outside the Stadium

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty - Drive Outside the Stadium

After deleting the car's data, all you need to do is head out of the stadium with the Charon.

Head towards the gate where the truck entered. Along the way, you will be stopped by a guard. Simply wait for him to finish checking the car; he will find nothing and will let you pass.

Once the guard leaves, make a right and follow the road leading outside the stadium. You'll then clear the side quest and keep the Charon as a reward!

Tips and Strategies for Moving Heat

Avoid Combat

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty - Avoid Combat

It is a lot better to approach this side quest stealthily even if it is optional, as you'll fight every BARGHEST soldier in the garage if you get detected.

2.0 Best Assassin Build (Stealth Build)

Equip Optical Camo

Using an Optical Camo will help you easily hide and sneak away from enemies during this side quest. Head to a ripperdoc and equip this cyberware before taking the elevator down to the garage.

Use Stealth Weapons

If you need to eliminate an enemy from far away, make sure to use silenced weapons or throwing knives to avoid entering combat.

You will likely only use your weapons to neutralize the guards in the storage area. Once you're in the garage, you won't have to even bring out a weapon as you'll be hiding inside the truck.
