Spellbound is a Side Jobs in Cyberpunk 2077. Spellbound can be acquired from Nix, who is in the back room at Afterlife. Completing Side Jobs (Side Quests) in Cyberpunk 2077, rewards you with experience points and may reward you with items. Side Jobs can also influence the main story outcome.


Spellbound Objectives

  • Talk to Nix.
  • Call R3n0.
  • Talk to R3n0.
  • Purchase the spellbook from R3n0.
  • (Alternative) Defeat R3n0.
  • Steal data from R3n0's computer.
  • Collect the goods from the stash.
  • Open the stash.
  • Talk to Johhny Silverhand.
  • Take the Book of Spells.
  • Return to Nix.


Spellbound Walkthrough

  • After you get in contact with R3n0, go to the meeting point which is at a bar on a footbridge in Charter Hill.
  • Your objective is to acquire the Book of Spells and return to Nix. You can purchase it from R3n0 at full price or with a 50% discount by using a Corpo exclusive line.
  • Alternatively, you can attack her, incapacitate her and breach her computer to obtain the coordinates of the stash. This requires 9 Intelligence to jack-in if you want to steal some cash. Once inside, to find the coordinates, you can just open the files and check "Cache Coordinates".
  • After acquiring the coordinates, head to the marked location and take the book from the suitcase. You can then hack the item to decrypt it and even acquire a legendary crafting spec.
  • You can keep the item if you want. But to gain extra cash, go back to Nix and give him the book. He will initially offer you a small amount but if you say you're not selling it for that price, he'll double the offer. This requires 10 Intelligence for you to use the dialogue option.
  • Additionally, if you have 9 Intelligence, you can check his wares and purchase components from him. Just choose the dialogue line: "Can you teach me something?" at the beginning when you return to him with the book. However, if you don't do it before giving the book he won't offer them anymore until you start Kold Mirage.


How to unlock Spellbound

        If you wonder how to get the code for R3n0s pc: its bugged.
        When u kill her she drops a "shard with loah symbols" but it doesnt appear in your journal, thous you cant read it. Its safe to assume that this shard would have the code.
        Whatever i payd and then killed this b*tch for being bigged.
        Thanks Dark S...
        Thanks Cyberpunk.

          As of version 1.06 this mission WILL bug your game and cause datamining no longer drop quickhacks. It makes getting quickhacks early in the game extremely difficult and basically requires you to unlock the crafting specs in the quickhacking skill tree before you can get access to some quickhacks.

            Talking to R3n0 can break all radio stations. Even saving and reloading won't fix the issue. Most likley a scripting issue where they set to turn off radios for dialog, but forget to turn back on after.

            You can get around this bug by killing her from a distance. For instance you can trigger combat with her by simply scanning her laptop, which will prevent you from entering dialog.

              Context: Nix wants the book of spells because there are powerful hacks in it. He tells you to buy it from R3n0!
