Cyberpunk 2077 The Gig Free Reward

To get the Cyberpunk 2077 The Gig free reward, all you have to do is pay a visit to Wakako as soon as the lockdown lifts. We’ll talk about that down below. Just mark the quest on the map and head to the Wakako’s pachinko parlor on Jig Jig Street . It’s to the north of the Silk Road West fast travel point. You’ll find the entrance into the parlor by the red lantern hanging above the door; it’s across from the Bliss store. Head through the bead curtain in the back, and there’s Wakako.

You can have a chat with her, but the main option to pick is “You still owe me for Sandra Dorsett.” You’ll get a fair chunk of change, and also a bit of free cyberware that you can pick up at a different location. That takes us to our next point.

Smart Weapon Targeting System Cyberware Free Reward

To get the Smart Weapon Targeting System Cyberware free reward in the Cyberpunk 2077 The Gig quest, head to Cassius Ryder’s ripperdoc shop in Watson. Just mark it on your map and travel over there. You’re looking for a door with “Doc Ryder” above it in big, neon letters. It’s behind a truly jaw-dropping number of vending machines, but overall, it’s not difficult to find.

Talk to the guy behind the counter and select “Let’s see what you have.” When the Cyberware menu opens, select “Hands.” Then, select “Tattoo: Tyger Claws Dermal Imprint.” The tattoo let’s you use the smart-targeting module in Smart weapons. In other words, it’s your very own aim bot cheat, because it makes rounds from Smart weapons home in on your targets. And it’s free, because Wakako is cool that way.

How to Wait for Lockdown to End in The Gig Cyberpunk 2077

In order for the lockdown to end at the start of Cyberpunk 2077, you actually can’t wait for it. By that, I mean, you can’t just skip time or while away the hours by exploring around. Instead, you have to proceed through the main story. Specifically, you have to complete The Pickup and The Information, which come after The Ride. Then, when all of that is over, you have to do The Heist, and the section that comes after that. When the fallout clears out, the Watson lockdown will finally be lifted, and you’ll have free reign over the entirety of Night City. This includes completing The Gig quest, and getting your rewards from Wakako and Cassius Ryder.

If you need help with anything else in the game, we have guides for you to check out. For example, if you don’t know how to remove the virus from the chip and find the Militech Datashard correct cack sequence we can help. Or, can you save Jackie in Cyberpunk 2077? We'll also help with your first Cyberpunk 2077 braindance during the Information quest.
