Fortunate Son Walkthrough
Bob and Emily's Favor
- Speak to Bob and Emily first in their tents at the Aldecaldos' camp. You'll learn that Jake needs an implant and that Dakota has set up a meeting with a hospital employee to arrange a pickup for the implant. After talking to Bob, head over to Little China and meet with the hospital employee.
- Be prepared here because as soon as you collect the goods, you'll be attacked by NCPD forces. It's also good that you have at least a high level of Intelligence that you'll use later on.
- Defeat all the NCPD officers and confront the hospital employee. Make sure you let him live or use the unique Intelligence dialogue line. This way, you'll learn that the implant has a virus and you can tell Bob about it when you return to the Aldecaldos. This will result in saving Jake who will make an appearance in the All Along the Watchtower ending.
- If you kill the hospital employee, then you won't find out about the implant being tampered and this will result in the death of Jake. Regardless of your decision, you will still obtain EXP and Street Cred as a reward.
- After learning about the implant, return to the Aldecaldos' camp and give Bob the implant. All that's left for you to do is wait for the surgery to finish which is after 8 hours in-game.
- You'll receive a message then from Bob after 8 hours, asking you to return to the camp. Either way, if he survives or dies, this will complete the job.
