|Wellsprings||Street Cred Lv 13||Search and Recover|
The Lord Giveth and Taketh Away is a Gig (Search and Destroy) you’ll find in Wellsprings, Heywood. When you near its location along the southwestern edge of the district you’ll get a call from Padre, provided your Street Cred is 13+.
Recover the Militech SUV
Your goal here is to find an SUV that is guarded by some Valentino gangers in and around a chop shop. As should be expected from the Heywood region, these foes are rather powerful, and there are numerous cameras surrounding the building.
First things first, you need to get rid of those cameras. Many of them can be disabled via quickhacks without even entering the hostile zone beyond the walls surrounding the chop shop. Circle around and disable as many as you can find (this is made trivial if you have Legendary Ping).
Once you’ve disabled the cameras, taking down or sneaking past the Valentinos should be a relatively simple matter. Try to stage your attack on the eastern side of the facility, as there’s an open garage door there where you’ll find a door or a chute (the latter partially under a car) you can easily use to reach the interior of the chop shop. Surprisingly there are only a few Valentinos inside, which are easily dispatched. If you have Reinforced Tendons, you can double jump to the roof to find a skylight that you can use [Technical 14] to reach the interior. There’s also an Access Point on the roof you can jack into, and a hatch that leads into a locked room in the interior [Technical 19], but given the requirement, it’s not ideal.
Getting inside shouldn’t be a problem, nor should finding the Militech SUV once you’re there. It’s big, black and ugly, and has “Militech” slapped all over it. If you want to loot around, be wary of a room near the double garage doors, as another Valentino lurks within (not including the two in the main garage). If you can take him out, and perhaps the one leaning against the wall outside, you can jack into the computer [Intelligence 10] for more loot. There’s also a locked door [Technical 14] in the garage, behind which you’ll find the container which may yield a legendary drop. Sadly one of the few that has an attribute requirement for you to reach.
Loot what you can, then open the garage doors (manually or via hacking). With that done, get in the Militech SUV and drive out of the chop shop. How much opposition you’ll face depends on how well you cleared the front of the shop earlier, but ideally the way will be clear and you’ll just have a 500m~ drive ahead of you. When you arrive, drop the SUV off where indicated and chat with the Nomad Aldecaldo who talks to you when you leave the drop-off garage to finish the Gig… after leaving the area and getting a followup call from Padre, of course.
Nomad: If you’re playing the Nomad origin you’ll get a chance to say NOMAD: “Do these deals on your turf.” when you talk to the Aldecaldo outside of the garage.
