Sunset Overdrive Quests Walkthrough

Similar to main story, all these Optional Quests are divided across four acts of the game. In this guide, I’m going to present a brief walkthrough of every Optional Quest that is available in the game.

Sunset Overdrive Quests Unlocked During Act 1

Breaking Booze

  • How to Unlock: Complete Amptastic
  • Rewards: $1500 Cash and 2000 Overcharge
  • Quest Location: Near Brewery Home Base from Jess

After accepting the mission, travel east towards the Construction Site. Grab the Flame Compensator and clear out the area of all OD. You’ll also have to take out Scabs and Poppers near the end of the mission.

The best way to complete this is to utilize Ethanol Barrels and toss them at the enemies to clear out the area.

Brewery Upgrade

  • How to Unlock: Complete Amptastic
  • Rewards: $1500 Cash, 2000 Overcharge, Old Factory District Vat Capcity Upgrade
  • Quest Location: Brewery Ground from Floyd

The first one is located in the area where the mission begins. For the second Sanibot, travel to the east side of the starting area and into the construction site. You need to be careful! There are quite a lot of enemies roaming this section of the map.

For the third Sanibot, travel further to the east near the Old Factory District (near the water). For the fourth Sanibot, get to the rail tunnels near the train rails.

For the fifth Sanibot, travel to the south-western side of the district and find it at the back of a billboard near a storage tank.

The last Sanibot can be found at the farthest southern side of the district. You need to look at the backside of a building to find it in plain sight.

Oxford’s Lost and Found

  • How to Unlock: Complete A New Friend
  • Rewards: $1500 Cash, 2000 Overcharge, and Oxford Backpack
  • Quest Location: N/A

The location of all bags that you need to find is displayed on your mini-map. Out of these backpacks, three are pretty easy to find, and two require some additional efforts.

There is one located in the parking lot and a Scab will gain hold of it. You need to chase down the Scab, kill it, and reclaim the bag.

The last backpack can be found in the farthest southern side of the area. Head to the Junkyard Garage and clear the area of all enemies to reclaim the last backpack.

Help a Hobo

  • How to Unlock: Complete Bora Bora Water
  • Rewards: 2000 Overcharge, Pilot Helmet, and Hobo Jacket
  • Quest Location: Bora Bora Water Facility from Reginald

After accepting the mission, head towards the north side to come to train yard. You need to clear the area of any Scab activity to progress through the mission.

Keep up with the train and take out any obstacle hindering its path. You can choose not to fight anyone along the way, but to keep the train going is extremely important.

Sunset Overdrive Quests Unlocked During Act 2

Big Brother Sam

  • How to Unlock: Complete Up in the Air
  • Rewards: $2000 Cash, 4000 Overcharge, and JYA Gun Turret Trap
  • Quest Location/Giver: Sam

You need to destroy five turrets, all of which will be in plain sight. These turrets fire unguided missiles that can deal a lot of damage. After destroying five turrets, Sam will ask you to destroy another five turrets located in the upper broadwalk in the northern side.

Travel north and destroy all turrets in plain sight. After this, Sam will ask you to bring him a radar dish to install it on the rooftop. Once this is done, you’ll have to take out 25 Scabs using the turret and complete the mission.

To Build a Better Cat Trap

  • How to Unlock: Complete Big Trouble in Little Tokyo
  • Rewards: $1500 Cash, 3000 Overcharge, and Cat Mask
  • Quest Location/Giver: A member of Troop Bushido

To get started, you need to travel to the mall located at the west side of the museum. The very first cat statue can be found at the entrance of the mall. You’ll have to take out the Scabs roaming in the area and also keep an eye on Feline Bombs.

To find the second cat statue, travel to the west side of the first one. Guarded by several enemies, this cat statue is in plain sight. The third statue can be found located inside La Laxante restaurant on the ground floor.

Head north from the La Laxante restaurant and pick up the Lucky Cat from the Scab picnic. For the final statue, you need to reach the rooftop and clear the area of enemies to find it.
