Dalton wants you to perform this mission without getting detected and without any casualties. He'll hand you the Arboron Novablast Disruptor, which can be used to knock out enemies. He'll also advise you to leave any companion behind so they don't hinder the operation.

To get the piece of code, you need to meet Nyx at Madame Sauvage's Place in the Ebbside of Neon City. Nyx will name a price for his code, and you can do one of these three things:

  • Pay 2500 Credits.
  • Use Persuasion and pay 1000 Credits.
  • Accept his request to upload the file to Camden Cho's computer.
