Unlocking the quest
How to start the quest: This mission should be unlocked automatically some time after completing the A Like Supreme side job, one of the Kerry Eurodyne's storyline side jobs. You will receive a message sent by the Bartmoss Collective. The message will contain an invitation to explore a certain website.
Checking out the website
The game will suggest returning to V's apartment to use your computer, but you can also use other equipment connected to the network. Regardless of the device you will use, go to the Net tab.
Select the Bartmoss Collective from the list of known websites - we have marked it in the picture above and you will recognize it by its clenched fist icon and a red background.
At the top of the website, you will see a note about the estimated prize for any piece of information about Swedenborg. Click on the 'Read More' to find out more about this case.
Contacting Nancy (Bel Isis)
Use your phone to call Nancy Hartley (Bel Isis). During the conversation, V will automatically offer assistance in the investigation of Swedenborg. Nancy will give you the first hint to explore an area in Santo Domingo.
Investigating the area in Santo Domingo
The place you're supposed to explore is a desolate residential district in Rancho Coronado, Santo Domingo. Upon arrival, the whole area will be marked in yellow on the mini-map and you will have to scan it for clues.
Look at the emergency stairs shown in the picture above. You will need to climb them.
Your task is to find a router - it will be attached to a wall of the building on one of the upper floors. Interact with the router and play a hacking mini-game (Breach Protocol).
You don't have to hack it entirely. All that matters is to carry out any hacking at all.
After that, you will receive a message from an unknown sender. It will contain coordinates of a location in the Badlands. Talk to Johnny before you leave Rancho Coronado (the dialogue options you choose during this conversation and all the following ones will not be important).
Investigating the first area in the Badlands
The signal source is located in the southern part of the Badlands. It is a camp, as shown in the picture. If you haven't been here yet, you may encounter a group of enemies here. It is recommended to deal with them first since sneaking around them might prove troublesome.
Ultimately, you will have to climb on the roof of a large trailer. This will allow you to locate the next router and, as before, you will need to connect to it and score a hacking mini-game.
Once again, you will receive a message from an unknown number, which will provide you with coordinates of the next location to investigate. Talk to Johnny again before you set off.
Investigating the second area in the Badlands
The next location is in the Badlands as well. After reaching the spot, use the ladders shown in the picture to reach the upper metal balconies adjacent to the large billboard.
See the attached picture for the location of another router . The procedure does not change - connect to the router and perform the Breach Protocol.
Wait for another message with the coordinates and chat with Johnny.
Explore the area in the Pacifica
The new destination is the West Wind Estate, Pacifica. The destination is adjacent to the West Wind Apartments. When you get there, find the fortune-teller bot as shown in the picture. You can optionally spend 1 eddie to hear a prediction or continue the conversation immediately.
Examine the side of the bot to find the last router. You must hack it and play the hacking mini-game. After you discover the real identity of Swedenborg, chat with Johnny.
Completing the job
This quest has three main endings:
- You can interact with the router and disconnect it from the network in order to stop the further process of sending messages.
- You can interact with the router and modify its code to make the device send even more messages. This is only possible if V has at least 10 points of the Intelligence attribute.
- You can talk to Johnny and inform him that you will leave the router as it is and let it continue sending messages.
Regardless of the ending, you must additionally call Nancy. In this case, you can handle the situation in two different ways - you can tell the truth or lie to her and keep the knowledge about Swedenborg to yourself.
Optionally, you can check the website you were researching at the very beginning of the mission. Its content may change depending on your choices regarding the last router.
