Fly to Arasaka Tower
Rogue devised a clever plan to allow you to enter the enemy's territory by surprise, but during the flight over the Arasaka Tower, your presence is detected and the AV is bombed. Weyland manages to stabilize the flight to the top floor of the Arasaka Tower.
Thanks to the Retrothrusters, Johnny and Rogue manage to land safely in the Arasaka jungle, but Wyland, who stayed in the vehicle, crashed at the waterfall. The main goal of the mission is to find a commander who has an elevator access key, but you can choose to complete an optional target and save Weyland first.
If you don't save Weyland, he will not participate in the rest of the quest and thus will not help you fight the Arasaka corporation.
Save Weyland - optional
If you have decided to help Wyland, follow Rogue towards the platform with the conference table. You will come across two guards here.
Approach the one who is standing at the table quietly and eliminate him, and Rogue will take care of the other opponent during this time. If Rogue suddenly quits fighting and freezes up somewhere, you will have to deal with the second guard yourself.
Follow Rogue towards the waterfall. You will meet three guards on the spot: two that patrol the area from the spot and a third one who keeps walking in a small circle. Take care of the mobile opponent while Rogue and Weyland eliminate the remaining two Arasaka soldiers.
Find the commanding officer
Follow Rogue to finally reach the commander. Note that one additional guard patrols the area with him. Go up the stairs and wait for the guard to approach the box. Go from behind and eliminate it.
Return to the platform with the commander and finish him when he is not looking at you. Search his body and take away his access key.
Get in the elevator
If you want to bypass the other guards, jump off the main sidewalk and, keeping left, go straight to the elevator. Go down to the 68th floor (atrium).
Reach the security level
Your goal is a security room located several floors below. Follow Rogue and jump in the designated area - special shoes will protect you from fall damage. If you do not want to risk a jump over the railing, you can go through the grating in the wall and jump down the ventilation duct.
As soon as you land on a lower level, hide - two guards and one drone are stationed here. If you want to operate quietly, you will have to hack the drone (short circuit). Then take care of the guards - wait until they are not looking in your direction and get rid of them quietly. Jump on the lower floor.
This floor is patrolled by two more guards and one drone. When they split up, you can go in from behind and eliminate them quietly. You will have to hack the drone (short circuit), bypass it or shoot it down at the end. Jump down two floors.
Get to the security room
First of all, hack the camera over the door to the security room and turn it off to move safely around the area.
The opponent who patrols the area in front of the entrance is stronger than the others, so you may not be able to eliminate it quietly. You can always sneak past and go straight to the right room.
There is only one guard in the security room. Sneak by him and finish or overpower him.
Use the computer shown in the picture above, go to the local network tab, and enable the access authorization to the server room.
Get to Mikoshi
Go into the server room and connect Alt Cunningham to the system. The AI will easily break the security and clear the way to Mikoshi. Go to the elevator on the lower floor and drive down to the Netrunner hall. Alt cleared the way, so as soon as you get out of the elevator, go straight to Mikoshi.
As soon as you open the last door leading to Mikoshi, Adam Smasher, one of the main bosses in Cyberpunk 2077, will stand in your way. A detailed description of the battle with boss Adam Smasher and many tips related to the fight can be found on a separate page of our guide, in the chapter Bosses.
After the fight, take Rogue's weapon (optional), then approach the access point and connect to Mikoshi. Further events are related to one of the possible endings of Cyberpunk 2077 and it is recommended to play through it yourself.
