Save Nix

There are 2 options to save Nix, however, the quest reward is the same for both.

  • You can save Nix by interacting with the electrical box next to the door, which results in the data being wiped.
  • You can save Nix by successfully data-mining Nix's laptop.
  • This choice is bugged for many players. Wait until Nix has completely stopped moving before attempting to hack the laptop, or it won't work. Once you have either turned off the power or completed the decryption, talk with Nix to receive your reward.

      Finding a Shard (Notice of Expiration) with the service information for the fridge Bartmoss was in during the Watson gig "Many ways to skin a cat" (stealing a van from Revere Courier Services – access to the building only during gig ). However, the quest does not trigger without the prerequisite of Act2 and finished Ghost Town quest arc. Also street creed 37 is supposed to be a prerequisite. I am not sure if it has a minimum level prerequisite.

      Once I finished Ghost Town and were in Watson, this quest just triggered itself and I was not sure where I got it from. But I had finished almost all gigs in Watson in Act1 and had the shard with the delivery information.
      Once I finished Kold Mirage, Spellbound side job was triggered on leaving the Afterlife. So Spellbound is triggered after Kold Mirage for some players…

        It should be noted that you can also start this mission by going exactly to the location where Dexter Deshawn’s body is. I never started the “Many Way To Skin A Cat” Gig and was free roaming when I stumbled upon the location and found Bartmoss’ body

          Even though Nix didn't move anymore, I wasn't able to hack into the laptop. You'll need to have a cyberdeck equipped in order to do that. If you're running with a berserk or sandevistan, it won't work.

            You can start this quest directly from the dump, but you have to have seen Nix at the afterlife - he shows up to give Rogue the intel chip on Hellman. Ghost Town should be started, but doesn't have to be completed.
