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.

      You don't just have to have the correct intelligence to get the shard, if you spare the doc & wait for about 30 seconds he'll offer it to you, you'll proably still be looting at this time anyway

        Imagine getting upset about being forced to fight hyper-corrupt cops, I don't think you guys quite understand the setting of the game.

          I don`t know what a problem many people have with shooting cops in game, just use non lethal mod for your eye implant. It works for all your weapons and you can switch it on/off any time.

            Lmao@ all the losers who refuse to kill cops xD Killing the cops was the best part. I then punched the hospital worker in the face for concealing the truth about the virus.

            Be sure not to grab the hospital worker. Wait for the dialogue.

              Kinda obvs, but you CAN kill the hospital employee after you have the shard that removes the virus. It may seem like the wrong thing to do, but he did lie even after getting confronted and killing all the cops. It was only if you're smart enough that you get the truth out of him.

              • While I didn't like the cop-killing aspect of this mission, I was glad that you didn't ultimately need the high-intel in order to choose a dialogue tree that ended with the doctor giving you the means to remove the virus from the implant.

                  Mission is next to impossible with quickhack build because currently can't quickhack police at all and they can one shot kill you from any view distance through most walls

                  There is a wall of concrete near the road, go to the highest point of it and they only just can't hit you while you shoot at them. Every time you kill one, drive away and save the game. Once you've cleared out the ones out front of the gate, you need to run up and throw a grenade or two until you manage to bait another one to come out of the gate to fight you.

                  Eventually you can kill them but its such a ridiculous mission these cops are harder than any boss in the game.

                    Quest bugged out on me. When I went up to the contact after the cop fight, I got the F grab option at the same time as the talk option. I tried to pick a dialogue option and snapped his neck on accident. Didn't even hear about the virus. Really pissed I got the bad ending for no reason.

                      I also ran and jumped fence. Didn’t wana kill cops if I don’t have to.. but quest marker stays locked and tracker says “Kill Cops”.. So you have to.
                      Makes sense afterwards, because if you don’t.. you wouldn’t know it was loaded with malware.
                      What I want to know is the outcomes of killing the doctor or letting him live.
                      I popped his ass.. was going to let him live, til he lied about the virus the first time you ask.
                      At that point, cops are dead, so why lie? He’s a POS.

                        Also if you go back to check out on the cops and try to think a way to deal with them, they have no problem spotting you hundreds of meters away and shoot through walls.

                          This quest is in pretty bad shape currently. You can not escape the combat with the cops. Even if it's trivial to get away and jump over the fence when leaving the hospital, the combat mode stays on even if you go kilometers away.

                          I have no interest in killing the cops for no reason, so i'm fucked.
