How to Start Cyberpunk 2077 Nancy Side Job?
If you can’t call Nancy to start the Killing in the Name side job in Cyberpunk 2077, you might not have gone far with Johnny’s story. You will have to complete the Chippin’ in Side job for Johnny, where you will meet with Rogue. But first, you will have to complete the Tapeworm quest by progressing far enough through the story. You will able to find a lot of Johnny’s old stuff for the Breathtaking trophy and his old Porsche 911 during Chippin’ in a side quest.
After you finish the Chippin’in side job you will be able to call Nancy and start the Killing in the Name side quest. Don’t think that this is the only problem you will face during this side quest, there are several other problems also so let’s take a look into those.
Can’t Hack into Router Bug in Killing in the Name Cyberpunk 2077
There are two things you can try if you can’t hack the router in Killing in the Name Side quest in Cyberpunk 2077. The first one is to check whether your cyberware OS lets you quickhack. Just like Berserk OS don’t let you perform quickhacks if that is the case then just go to the nearest ripperdoc and change your OS to a more friendly one.
If it doesn’t work then it means you have run into a bad bug. The router hack bug is very annoying and to fix this bug you have to reload a save before you started the mission. Then just go to Nancy’s coordinates, but you will have to do two things while on your way to Nancy. One, you will have to talk to Johnny when he appears on the blue van, and two don’t interact with any NPCs. This will allow you to scan the area properly and interact with the router,
If Johnny is not appearing on the blue van for you, then it means you are in another bug. You can’t mess with the router without talking to Johnny and the mission will be bugged out completely. So let’s see if there is anything we can do about it.
How to Fix Johnny Not Appearing Bug in Cyberpunk 2077 Killing in the Name Side Quest?
To fix this bug all you have to do is load an older save, from before accepting the mission. This is the only way that can jumpstart Johhny to appear on the top of the blue van when you go to Nancy’s coordinates, and it is necessary to avoid the router bug as we have told above. Just make sure to talk with Johnny all the way, without doing fast forward through any of it, and also don’t touch any NPC you see in the area.
