Starfield One Step Ahead Walkthrough

Talk to Imogene

After completing the previous quest, Back to the Grind, you can talk to Imogene Salzo to get your first real assignment. She'll tell you that CeltCorp had been snooping around Ryujin's servers to bag a potential client. Your task is to take a virus and upload it into their system.

Go to CeltCorp

CeltCorp is located on the opposite side of the main Neon City Hub. Walk across the city and into the elevator next to the Astral Lounge. Select the CeltCorp floor.

Upload the Program at CeltCorp

Walk up to the terminal designated by the quest marker and break the Novice security lock. Luckily, you don't need the Security skill for this, and a Digipick will suffice.

Once you have access to the system, you need to select the option that lets you upload the program. Select it and quietly leave the building. It's a piece of cake for any stealth build.

Avoid being caught

It's important to avoid getting caught while hacking into the system. The system in question is out in the open, and if someone sees you hacking into it, you'll get a bounty on your head and the security forces coming down on you. Of course, this means your final payout will be reduced, and Imogene will be disappointed.

This will be a piece of cake for you if you have the Stealth skill and have levelled them a bit, as they will let you know when you're detected or hidden. You can crouch near the computer, and you'll be fine. However, if you need help, we suggest sitting on a nearby chair and waiting till midnight for everyone else to leave the office.

You can also use the power that lets you become invisible.

Return to Imogene at Ryujin Tower

Once you're done, report to Imogene and give her the rundown of what happened. She'll hand you your reward, and you'll be briefed for the next mission.
