Completing the quest “The forest is cut down – the chips fly” in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty
How to start the quest
According to the plot of Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, in a task called “Hand Washes Hand,” Mr. Hands will receive a request to undermine the authority of one of the influential people in Dog City. This can be done by completing three of the four side quests. “The forest is cut down – the chips fly” is one of them.
After activating the quest, follow the point on the map indicated by the customer – this is a long-abandoned spa. This is where the Voodooists are based.
Get to the Voodoo base
First you need to get inside the “Voodoo” lair. This is not difficult to do. You can enter through the main entrance, and there will only be one guard on your way. There is also an entrance on the right – you can get inside by using it.
A bunch of enemies await you inside – three will be on guard below, and two are on the floor above. Try to make as little noise as possible when you remove them. Since this is a base for criminals, if you make a lot of sounds, their number will increase significantly.
Find Milko Alexis
Run to the second floor. As soon as you go up, you will see a turret. Disarm it and turn left – there will be a door there. Enter it, in the room you will find a table on which there is a robot and a computer. Using your computer, turn off the video surveillance system. Don't forget to search the rooms, you can find a lot of useful loot in them.
After inspecting the room, run further into the passage located on the right. Be careful, you will find yourself in a corridor swarming with enemies.
Move straight and you will find yourself in a room with a large iron door. Here you can talk with an implant supplier who, for five hundred eurodollars, will enlighten you on how to neutralize your enemies as quickly as possible. The man will tell you that sparkling servers will help stun or even destroy opponents. They can be found in the room where the robots are.
Next, run into the room behind the gray door. When you go there, you will automatically activate the security system. Now your main task is to destroy all the rebel robots. There will be a mini-boss among them; by neutralizing him, you will turn off the rest of the machines.
You can choose one of three options for combat tactics:
- Destroy all ordinary robots, and then deal with the mini-boss.
- Focus on the boss. By killing him, you will kill the others automatically.
- Listen to the advice of the implant supplier and take care of the servers. With their help, you can stop ordinary robots, thereby making the further battle with the boss easier.
As a reward for killing a strong enemy, you will receive an iconic pistol.
After you deal with the robots, the central door will open – run through it. Next you will need to walk along a long corridor. He will eventually lead you to a door, behind which you will find two hackers.
Kill Milko or leave Alana
One of the guys is the one you need, Milko. He is in a chair. The second is a specialist in the fight against organized crime, Alan Noel.
When you find yourself in the same room with netrunners, you can not talk to them, but immediately finish off Milko or shoot both. If you kill Milko, Alan will ask you to quickly get out of this place. In any case, you will successfully complete the task.
You can also enter into a conversation with Alan, on whom the further development of events will depend.
After Alan tells you that he has been trying for a long time to find the group to which Milko belongs, you there will be three possible answers.
- If you wish him good luck in his affairs, then the main character will leave the netrunners alone. It will be impossible to kill them, and you will only have to leave the Voodoo base. However, despite this, the task will be counted. Later in the story, Alan will give you a reward.
- If you ask if Milko is Alan's informant, you can talk a little more with the netrunner. Ultimately, you will still have to choose from the options proposed earlier: kill Milko or leave him and Alan alone.
- If you want to save the customer, Alan will become very angry and you will have to kill him, and after him and Milko. This will complete the quest.
As you can see, the task will complete successfully in any case. However, if you eliminate Milko as Mr. Hands asked, he will praise you.
How to hack a laptop in the netrunners room
Next to the chair where Milko was, you will see a laptop. You can access it with twenty intelligence points. Unfortunately, we were unable to find the password.
There is no significant information that affects the plot in the computer. In it you can read about the stolen cargo and Alan's quarrel with his boss.
We hope that with the help of our guide you were able to complete Mr. Hands' order and easily found Milko Alexis.
