Freedom of the Press is a Gig in Cyberpunk 2077. Freedom of the Press can be acquired from Regina Jones. Completing Gigs in Cyberpunk 2077 earns you experience points and may reward you with some items.


Night City doesn't like people that like to kick the hornet's nest, and Max Jones... well he kicked a bunch of 'em at the same time. Kicked them so hard, in fact, that someone put a hit out on him. Thing is, personally, I'd rather he stayed alive.

Max Jones is an old friend from my muckraking days. We co-wrote a podcast about independent farmer who were put out of biz by Biotechnica drones. Those were the days.

Nowadays, Max doesn't even take my calls. He's as stubborn as they come, but now I'm worried he's really lost touch with reality. He probably thinks he can manage perfectly fine on his own, but that's what all young, gonk men think - that they're invincible. Bring him to reason, will ya?

Sending you the coords to his hideout. If I managed to track him down, it's only a matter of time until the others do too.

Freedom of the Press Gig Walkthrough Cyberpunk 2077

  • When confronting max is "No, I'm not" or Max will kill himself and you will fail the mission.
  • Escort Max outside. You can lead him through the other door in his room which will take you through a previously locked door, or if you disarmed all the traps you can take him the way you came in.
  • Doing a non-fatal takedown when he stands up will allow you to stuff him in the car trunk outside and still pass the mission.

      after completing the quest, i followed the car. after some minutes, in westbrook japantown, it was an underpass, i think.
      6 scavs spawned and tried to gun down the car. not V. they were aiming at the car. killed the scavs, obviously. still currently following the car. maybe track down if the car will stop somewhere - Mister Robotto

        I accidently got a interesting outcome to this quest. While talking to max I somehow grappled him by mistake, and non leathally took him down. When I did so I got a conversation with Johnny about how I was almost as bad with media as he is.
