Cyberpunk 2077 Watson Gigs Guide

Our Cyberpunk 2077 Watson Gigs Guide will get you up to speed with everything you need to know about gigs in the Watson District in Cyberpunk 2077, including their locations, their types, and what you need to do to complete them.

Cyberpunk 2077 Watson Gigs

Gig in Cyberpunk 2077 is basically a task that you’ll be assigned by the fixers, in exchange for handsome rewards.

In the Watson district, you can get these gigs in two regions, namely Northside and Kabuki.

Below, we’ve detailed all the gigs that are currently available in these two regions. So, let’s get started!

Watson Gigs

Northside Gigs

Flight of the Cheetah
Gig Type: SOS: Merc Needed

Difficulty: Moderate

Head to the 1237 motel room and talk to Hwangbo. Once the conversation is finished, a group of five enemies will appear, looking for you and Hwangbo.

Since they won’t be aware of your presence in the motel, you can sneak past them. Otherwise, fight and kill them.

Then, make your way to Hwangbo’s car and drive to the meeting location. Once there, converse with Hwangbo after which this gig will be marked as completed.

Rewards: 1390 eddies, +234 Experience, +525 Street Cred Experience

Dirty Biz
Gig Type: Thievery

Difficulty: Moderate

Once you’re on the destined location, you’ll most probably be detected by the Maelstrom gang members. So, be prepared for a hot contest.

Once you’ve taken care of all the gang members, make your way to Gottfrid and Fredrik’s studio and ask them about the XBD recording of the preacher’s son.

They will hand over to you the BD_9430 footage. Go on and deposit this footage to the Drop Point to complete this gig.

Rewards: 1798 eddies, +234 Experience, +525 Street Cred Experience

Rite of Passage
Gig Type: Thievery

Difficulty: Moderate

Sneak inside the Gig Location through the rightward garage to avoid being noticed by the guard at the entrance. Be sure to disable the camera over the garage before you do so.

Next, kill the enemy in the garage and head upstairs to the server room stealthily. Here, you’ll see a computer containing the surgery recording.

Interact with the computer to collect the recording. Having done that, escape the yellow area shown in the mini-map to finish this gig.

Rewards: 1390 eddies, +234 Experience, +525 Street Cred Experience

Hippocratic Oath

Difficulty: Moderate

To enter this mission’s location, you can either sneak in or go in firing guns. Whichever option you go with, make your way to the Clean Cut clinic next.

There’ll be a plethora of Maelstrom gang members on its entrance. Take cover behind the pillars and half walls just outside the clinic while you clear out the entrance.

Once your pathway is clear, head inside the clinic and persuade Lucy to leave the clinic with you.

If you’re successful in persuading her, accompany her to outside the clinic where a fixer in a car will be awaiting her.

Once she enters the car, this gig will be marked as completed.

Rewards: 1390 eddies, +234 Experience, +525 Street Cred Experience

Occupational Hazard
Gig Type: SOS: Merc Needed

Difficulty: High

Make your way to the location of this mission and given that you level 5 Technical Ability, head inside.

Otherwise, rush back to the warehouse and ascend the yellow ladder to reach the roof. While you do so, take a peek or two inside the warehouse from the windows etched on your way.

If you take the second route to get inside the warehouse, you’ll have a tactical advantage of height against Anna Nox Mox Leader – the boss you’ll be facing in the mission.

Keep shooting it until it’s being killed. Next, proceed to find Hal Cantos.

There’ll be a blue cargo container downstairs. Go near it and you’ll get a knock option near the doors.

Once you’ve assured Cantos that Anna Nox is being taken care of, he’ll come out of the container.

You’ll have a small chat with him after this gig will be complete.

Rewards: 4860 Eddies, 328 Experience, 740 Street Cred Experience

Lousy Kleppers
Gig Type: Thievery

To head inside the Maelstrom warehouse with this mission marker, proceed to the warehouse fencing on the left and crawl in through the gap.

Now, move cautiously to the front entrance and disable the camera fixated over the entrance.

With the camera disabled, you’ll be able to sneak past the two Maelstrom gang members into the warehouse.

Once inside, just follow the mission marker to the databank, being wary of the cameras.

You’ll find the databank on a table next to a minivan. Grab it and head outside the warehouse silently.

Finally, deposit the databank at the nearest Data Point to mark this gig as completed.

Rewards: 4860 Eddies, 328 Experience, 740 Street Cred Experience

Freedom of the Press
Gig Type: SOS: Merc Needed

Make your way to Max Jones’ hideout and either enter through the front door (if you level 8 Technical Ability) or by climbing up the roof through the dumpster right around the side.

Once inside, continue following the mission marker to find Max Jones. There will be a lot of cameras and traps on your way. Avoid them at all costs to proceed with this mission.

When you’ve finally reached Max Jones’ room, he’ll threaten to kill himself. Respond with the dialogue, “Nope, I’m not.” to keep the conversation going.

Throughout the conversation, another dialogue will have a couple of choices to choose from; “Regina was your mentor?” will be the right choice.

All other dialogue options will be pretty straightforward.

After you’ve persuaded Max Jones to leave with you, lead him to a car waiting outside.

As soon as he enters the car, leave the area and this gig will be complete.

Rewards: 4860 eddies, +328 Experience, +740 Street Cred Experience.

Many Ways to Skin a Cat
Gig Type: Thievery

This nifty little thievery gig has you breaking into a warehouse to steal a van. You can find it in the Northside of Watson.

You’ll find yourself at the front of the warehouse initially. This is a more direct approach, a more favorable and quieter one can be found on the side along the left of the fence. Sneak inside and you can sneak into the warehouse along the crates.

Open the door using your Technical Ability 5, or go upstairs. You will find yourself at the root with the windows on your left open. Be careful of the cameras and drop down cautiously.

Follow the marker and go to the computer room near you to sync up with the van. Now, either head to the van stealthily or cause up a ruckus. The gate will open automatically and you can drive it to the marked location to complete this side-job.

Rewards: 1478 eddies, +234 Experience, +525 Street Cred Experience

Catch a Tyger’s Toe
Gig Type: Agent Saboteur

This side-job pushes you to upload malware to the H11 megabuilding. Ready yourself up for some resistance from the Tiger Claws.

Your first objective lies in the main server room. Take the elevator down to the room and be vigilant of any Tyger Claws members. There are cameras all around, so you might want to sabotage them before you start going about.

Take a right after getting out of the elevator and use the doorway that leads to a stairwell with a camera. Take care of the camera and creep your way through the large server towers.

Sneak into the back room and install the malware on the computer. Once done, retrace your steps back to the elevator and get out of the facility. Regina Jones will call you and grant you your rewards, thus completing the side-quest.

Rewards: 1160 eddies, +177 Experience, 398 Street Cred Experience

Cyberpsycho Sighting: Where the Bodies hit the Floor

With this side-job, you’ll find yourself squaring off against a Cyberpsycho. Kill him, or use non-lethal force; the decision is up to you.

Ellis Carter is a formidable foe who will try to set you ablaze as much as possible. Having perks that grant you bonuses while being set on fire really help here. If you don’t have those, then make sure to get your Maxdoc meds ready.

After you finish off Carter, you will get a Breach Protocol skill shard to level your Breach Protocol.

Loot the Archived Conversation between Brick and Ellis. Check your messages and tell Regina of everything that transpired which will complete this side-gig.

Rewards: 1300 eddies, +118 Experience, +265 Street Cred Experience

Cyberpsycho Sighting: Six Feet Under
This is another addition to the Cyberpsycho series as you are set to fight another Psycho Killer.

Tracking the Cyberpsycho, you’ll find yourself at a closed end. The weakness of this particular enemy is electricity. You can take out some shock damage options to make the fight easier.

Pick up the Farewell shard after dealing with the Cyberpsycho and send Regina the information regarding your success which will complete the Six Feet Under gig.

The Cyberpsycho is in the back alley in a satanic ritualistic area. In the center is a tub, filled with water, this is where the Cyberpsycho is.

Stand around in the area and scan everything to make the Cyberpsycho emerge, then take her down.
