Gig Types

Gigs are the third tier of jobs that you can undertake in Night City. There are several categories to these, SOS: Merc Needed, Search and Recover, Thievery, Gun for Hire, Agent Saboteur and Special Delivery. These will be issued via the local Fixer as you pass the orange colored markers on the map. Your tasks will vary based on what category, as detailed below:

  • SOS: Merc Needed - These are simple escort quests that usually involve you infiltrating an area, locating a person and bringing them to safety. Most of the time, a bonus will be applied for doing this without alerting the enemy.

  • Search and Recover - These Gigs require you to once again infiltrate an area and seek an item, often in the possession of an enemy. Once you have this, you’ll need to exit the area and leave it at a Drop Point.

  • Thievery - These Gigs play out in much the same way as Search and Recover with the main difference being that these are a lot more involved. You’ll usually have to apply better tactics to keep hidden from the enemy until you reach the item and leave.

  • Gun for Hire - These Gigs are all about neutralizing your target by any means necessary. Although you’ll often be asked to remain non-lethal, the only downside is a small bonus reward. To get this reward though, you’ll have to perform a non-lethal Takedown and then carry the body all the way out to a Drop Point whereas if you simply kill them, the Gig ends upon exit of the area.

  • Agent Saboteur - The purpose of these Gigs are to infiltrate an area and upload a virus on a computer somewhere. You’ll usually have to remain hidden from the enemy during these Gigs for the best rewards.

  • Special Delivery - There are only a few of these Gigs and they deal with the delivery of vehicles. You’ll go to one location, pick a vehicle up and then drive it to a secondary location.

Unlocking Gigs

Gigs will unlock in one of two ways, the first being simple Main Job progression. Each District will have a set of Gigs available at Street Cred Lv 1 however once you raise in Street Cred, all districts will unlock tougher Gigs so be sure to check back from time to time as you raise it.

Legendary Equipment and Gigs

Aside from the money and XP you’ll earn completing Gigs, it’s also worth noting that many Gigs are an excellent source of loot. Specifically, most Gigs have one lootable container that will yield either an epic or a legendary quality item. The rarity of the item is random, and determined based on proximity while the item is more rigid, so you can, if you have the time to spare, find the container with the high-quality item in it, save nearby, and save/load until the item is legendary and has the stats you want. Say, for example, you’re on a Gig and you can find an epic or legendary Quasar revolver. Reloading will always yield another Quasar, but its stats and rarity will vary considerably. Either way, the item will scale to your level.
