Killing in the Name is a heavely bugged quest

This questline is bugged and several steps are important to take during it:

  • If Nancy can't be called, you've to complete Chippin' In.
  • VERY IMPORTANT: BUG: Before going to hack routers, you need to equip a Quickhacks-friendly Operating System at a Ripperdock. Militech Paraline is one of them. This will prevent a bug that doesn't allow you to hack the computers.
  • When you need to talk to Johnny, do NOT skip any of his lines, let them play through all the way, and do not talk to any NPC during this quest.

Killing in the Name Walkthrough

  • In order to trigger this quest, first, complete A Like Supreme. You also want to make sure you have a high level of Intelligence to progress in this job. Later, you'll receive a specific message from a mysterious client called Swedenborg-Riviera. You'll then receive a final message that contains a link to a website.
  • When you receive the link, access any computer and check the domain so that you can get in touch with the journalist who you figure out to be Nancy. After obtaining the coordinates for Nancy's last known location, head to Rancho Coronado and scan the area for clues. You'll want to scan for the fuse box here. You can also follow a sound coming from a device where you will need to head up a metal staircase where you'll discover a pirate router - hack into it to find the source of the signal
  • Take note that Wraiths will appear here and guard the area just as when you're about to track the signal. Luckily, you can sneak past them and follow the power cables that lead to the roof of a nearby trailer. Here, you'll find another router that you can hack into to find the next source.
  • Eventually, you'll arrive at a Biotechnica Farm. Look up and scan the broken railing and then climb up the ladder all the way to the top of the structure to find another router to scan.
  • You'll then arrive at an amusement park in Pacifica. Head to the designated area and interact with the fortuneteller. Speak to Johnny and follow what was instructed to examine another router on the fortuneteller bot. Speak to Johnny again and then decide on what to do with Swedenborg.
  • (1) Leave it as it is so that it continues to spam the net. (2) Disconnect it. (3) If you meet the required Intelligence attribute, you can modify it.
  • Once you've made your decision, you can then call Nancy to tell her the truth or lie to her and tell her you don't have any new information.

  • Can be triggered when you receive a message after completing A Like Supreme.

      I can't even start the quest (despite having received the message and the quest being available to track on my journal), since the Bartmoss website is not available in any computer including the one in V's apartment. Playing v1.3 on PC.

        Still cannot hack router. It doesn't light up at all and states it is unpowered. Tried changing cyberdecks mong other things. No luck. This is the last quest chain I need before 100%. So frustrating!

          I got the quest from a message from bartmoss collective, and I haven't yet completed A Like Supreme, I haven't even completed Chippin In' yet. This happened on two different playthroughs. Should I wait after A Like Supreme or just do it now?
