This guide provides a complete walkthrough for the Gimme Danger Main Job in Cyberpunk 2077. It includes major choices and consequences that you will encounter during the mission. Please note that the choices made at the start of the mission do not affect the overall outcome of the story.
Step 1: Meet with Takemura and Discuss the Plan
- After the events of the Down on the Street Main Job, Takemura will contact you and ask to meet in the shopping district of Japantown. Speak with Takemura and inquire about the purpose of the meeting. He will inform you about the upcoming parade involving Hanako Arasaka and provide information he obtained from an infected shard. Take the shard from Takemura and continue following him as he explains the mission details.
Step 2: Break Into the Security Room
- Takemura will explain that access to city cameras is necessary to identify snipers guarding the parade. He will ask you to break into the security room and hack the camera system. Follow the waypoint marker to reach the door. If you have at least 6 points in the Body attribute, you can force the door open. Otherwise, look for a nearby dumpster, climb on top of it, and reach the roof through a large hatch labeled Exit. Once inside, make your way to the ground floor where the security terminal is located.
Step 3: Infect the Security System and Return to Takemura
- Use the security terminal to infect the camera system as directed by the waypoint. Climb the nearby ladder to reach Takemura and join him at a nearby food vendor. While waiting for your meal, Johnny will appear and make a comment about Takemura. Your response to Johnny will not affect the story. After the conversation, go over the plan with Takemura.
Step 4: Offer to Help with Reconnaissance or Let Takemura Handle It
- During the discussion, Takemura will suggest that reconnaissance is needed for the plan to succeed. You have a timed response to either offer your assistance or allow Takemura to handle the reconnaissance alone. This choice does not have a major impact on the story but can offer additional dialogue and a chance to build a friendship with Takemura if you choose to help.
Step 5: Let Takemura Do the Reconnaissance Alone (Optional)
- If you decide to let Takemura handle the reconnaissance alone, you will need to wait for one day before he contacts you again. Once he does, he will share the gathered intel, which will have two less possible entrances and exits compared to if you had helped him. After the call, you can continue with the mission as normal.
Step 6: Offer to Help with Reconnaissance
- If you choose to help Takemura with the reconnaissance, he will begin sharing important information about the Arasaka family and their leniency toward their son, Yorinobu. This conversation will provide additional story details and unlock future dialogue exchanges with Takemura.
Step 7: Follow Takemura to the Construction Site
- Accompany Takemura to a construction site after your conversation at Japantown. Jump over the nearby fence and follow him until you reach an elevator. Press the button to reach the top floor.
Step 8: Overlook the Arasaka Industry Park
- Continue following Takemura until you reach a vantage point overlooking the Arasaka Industry Park. Speak to Takemura to start the reconnaissance. Use your scanner to gather information about the four possible entrance tactics: The Footbridge, The Far Left Gate, The Pile of Crates, and The Arasaka Delivery Vans. Take your time to observe the area and ensure you haven’t missed anything.
Step 9: Befriend Takemura (Optional)
- During the observation, Takemura will spot a cat, leading to a conversation where you can befriend him. This may unlock additional dialogue exchanges and interactions in future missions.
Step 10: Infiltrate the Arasaka Industrial Park
- Once you’re ready to proceed, return to street level and follow the waypoint to infiltrate the Arasaka Industrial Park. Use the provided links for a complete walkthrough of each potential entrance method: The Arasaka Van or the Lone Guard at the Far Left Gate.
Step 11: Hack the Parade Float
- After infiltrating the warehouse, make your way to the parade float. Hack into it using the computer on the ground floor. Upon successful hacking, Takemura will provide an escape plan.
Step 12: Escape the Arasaka Industrial Park Warehouse
- To escape the warehouse, follow the waypoint marker to the opposite side of the nearby forklift. Climb onto the shipping containers and make your way to the roof. Jump across the gap and climb down the ladder to the roof below. Once you’re clear, Takemura will call and congratulate you on completing the mission.
