Hacking the Hacker is a Gig in Cyberpunk 2077. Hacking the Hacker can be acquired from Muamar "El Capitan" Reyes. Completing Gigs in Cyberpunk 2077 earns you experience points and may reward you with some items.


Those boys and girls from 6th Street think they got wicked smarts, that they can jump a Militech transport in my hood without me knowing about it. They think they can crack corpo weapons and tip the balance of power in this city to their favor. It's time they got a rude awakening.

I'll snap you the location of the 6th St hideout and the door code. Job's simple - find a way in, look for the comp they use to jailbreak corpo tech, upload the virus I'll supply to you and voila, their fancy new weapon melts into a sparkly new slagheap.

One more thing. If you happen to find a Lucius Thoran, do me a favor and make his ass disappear, will ya? Thoran's a techie - came up with this gonk plan, which makes him a real thorn in my ass. Pun intended. Stay safe and have fun.

Hacking the Hacker Walkthrough Gig Cyberpunk 2077

This gig is unlocked and given to you by Muamar "El Capitan" Reyes when you reach Street Cred Level 20, in order to trigger the gig, you must be driving or roaming around the Arroyo area in Santo Domingo. Head over to the marked location which is Megabuilding H4 and use the elevator to get to the apartment floor of the megabuilding. Your main objective is to upload a virus onto the computer of the 6th street gang netrunner. You'll also have an optional objective to kill a specific gang member named Lucious.

Once on the floor of the apartments, the 6th street hideout is on the opposite side of the elevator that you got out from, with the only path being the walkway to your right. If you wish to use stealth for a while, you can use go through a window that leads to a room on the right to avoid some enemies. When you reach the stairs, you can proceed in two ways, either on the lower floor or up to the right. Do take note that there will be a turret if you go with the lower floor route. 

If you take the upper way, this path will lead you straight to the room where Lucious and the main objective are located. Once inside, silently take out Lucious, and start uploading the virus into the marked computer. Once done, you can leave the area by using the elevator. Do take note that if you entered combat mode, there will be 6th street gang members waiting for you outside the elevator. Once out of proximity of the Megabuilding, this will mark the end of the gig.
