On this page of the Cyberpunk 2077 guide, you can find a walkthrough for the With a Little Help from My Friends side quest. It is the Panam's second side mission. The following walkthrough informs how to lead the conversations with Panam to be able to have an affair with her, and how to steal trucks with Basilisk.
How to start the quest: You have to complete the first Panam's quest - Riders on the Storm. After some time, Panam should call V and ask him to come back to Aldecaldo camp in Badlands. You have to accept the invitation, but you don't have to hurry to get to the camp.
Join the conversation with Panam, Saul, and Mitch. During this meeting, you have some freedom to choose the dialogue options. The only important thing is you can't tell Saul what Panam's plans are. This can end Panam's storyline and also cross your chances of romance with Panama.
After Saul leaves, talk to Panama about the basilisk. Listen to the plan to steal the tank and go after Panama. You may ask additional questions (limited time) or not to talk.
Sit down at the table. You must agree to participate in a robbery. You can accompany Panam on the way to the site of the robbery (a better idea) or get there alone. If you choose to take a ride together, there are more opportunities to ask Panam questions.
Once you reach your destination, you can optionally talk to other nomads - Cassidy and Teddy, Carol, and Mitch and Bob (scan the transformer at their request).
Return to Panam. You must get to the control tower. You can do this in several ways:
- Use the Technical Abilityattribute to open the front door.
- Climb to the place shown in the picture to reach the upper entrance to the tower.
- Use the Body attribute to force the back door.
If necessary, unlock the front door from the other side. Get with Panam to the control room. You have to find a card and the place to find it is shown in the picture - it is a torn-out drawer lying on the floor. With the card, reach the reader in the main room.
Panam will lean against the railing and zou will start talking. You have to be careful if you are planning an affair with Panam (it is only available for male V). In this case, you cannot select a dialogue option that suggests that you are helping her only for financial reasons. All other reactions are "allowed" and will not affect your relationship with Panam.
When playing as a male V, you can give Panama signs that you care about her and touch her hand. However, these are not options that determine the possibility of an affair.
Join other nomads. In the meantime, you will receive a message from Saul, and you can lie about Panam's current location.
Sit down by the fire. You can optionally make a toast to Scorpion (or drink without a cheer). When playing as male V, there is also an opportunity to cuddle with Panam.
After Panam wakes you up the next day, get into her pick-up and set off in pursuit of the train. During the chase, you will take control of the cannon. Try to hit the coupler between the cars (we marked it on the picture). If you succeed, the next fights will be easier, but this is not an unnecessary step.
Expect a fight with Militech troops. First, use the onboard cannon, and after it brakes, get out of the car and start attacking the mercenaries using your own weapons. Look for opportunities to throw grenades at them and to fire from behind concrete covers.
After winning the fight, return to the Panam's car. You have to escort the trucks to the nomad camp, but there are no other threats on the way. The quest will end with an argument with Saul, who will be angry with Panam for endangering the Aldecaldos. Listen to the conversation with Panam. You will find out that soon (after building Basilisk from the stolen parts), she will contact you.
