Got a call from Jacob Lamb - friend of mine, director, from the good ol' days. Ex-director, I should say. Ever since Bushido X made a loss of a billion, the guy never set foot on a set again.

Jacob makes a living playing cards. One time he tried his luck at an illegal Tyger Claws casino at the back of the Kashuu Hanten eatery. Things weren't looking good, but instead of getting up from the table, he waited until he'd recoup. First went all his money, then his watch, wedding ring... And finally, one of his optics.

Jacob wants his implant back. Sending you the coordinates of the casino where he lost it. AFAIK, the eye's still there. How you get it is your biz, not mine.

  • Find Jacob Lamb's implant.

Playing for Keeps Gig Walkthrough Cyberpunk 2077

While driving around at the South-West corner of Little China in Watson, you will receive a phone call from Regina Jones, regarding a Search and Recovery gig. Head over to the Quest marker and enter the bar, there will be a couple of enemies in the area, and a fight will also break out. It's up to you if you want to proceed with stealth or go in guns blazing. There will be a locked computer room where you'll find the location of the eye implant that you're looking for.

There are two ways to access the key card to the room. The first option involves convincing or fighting the bartender inside the bar, possibly triggering a fight with the other nearby gang members. The second option would be to find a keycard on the left side of the bar on the shelves. Once you have access to the computer room, browse through the messages and emails and this will give you the location of the implant which is located in an underground poker room beneath the bar.

Just follow the quest marker to get to the implant. Once you retrieve it, leave the area and deposit it at the nearest drop point, This will mark the end of the gig that Regina Jones has given you.

      This one bugs out for me. After acquiring the implant, It shows in my inventory as an important item. But it is NOT possible to drop it in the delivery box - it's simply not in my inventory at that time, any more than say, Delamain's Scanner is.
