Cyberpunk 2077 Kold Mirage Side Job - How To Save Nix

Last Update: December 21, 2020 3:36 PM /


Kold Mirage Side Job

The Kold Mirage side job can be activated in a few keys ways. The first is a random set of coordinates that will sometimes be sent to you via text. It isn't entirely sure when this happens. Luckily, going to a specific place will trigger it. Go to the location below to find out. 

Kold Mirage Side Job

You'll see your old pal Dexter on the ground as you come up to the coordinates, and you can loot his body for a pretty sweet Rare / Iconic Power Pistol, Plan B. You'll see where to go next, what looks like a random fridge in the middle of all that trash. Open it up to find a body, and one that Johnny will quickly identify and explain for you. A wanted man that was, clearly, never found.

Johnny will talk you into pulling his old cyberdeck, and tell you that NIx at the Afterlife will be the man to see. Head to see Nix and hand over the cyberdeck, and you'll have a choice to proceed.

NIx Afterlife

Fine. Get to it. - Drop the deck on the table, and Nix will get to work decrypting it.
Best Let it be. - Walk away without decrypting.
Think the disk might be infected? (Requires 10 INT) - You'll question if it's safe, but Nix will brush it off as if it's nothing. Nothing of real value to be gained.

The only way to move forward is to give Nix the cyberdeck.

Once you do, he'll sit down in the chair and get to work, and only a few seconds later start convulsing. Think quick, or his brain will be soup.

Cyberpunk 2077 - How to Save Nix

There's only two options on how to save Nix, and both net the same reward: a few quickhacks to add to your repertoire, as well as experience and street cred.

Shut off the power - Turn around, and you can override the power by the door. This'll save Nix but wipe the cyberdeck.
Use Nix's Computer - Open up Nix's computer and complete the quickhack to save him, as well as the data. Who's the better netrunner now?

Getting the epic "System Reset"

While the rewards (and choices) aren't anything spectacular, this quest is worth doing for the extra quickhacks, as well as the ability to get gigs from Nix afterwards, one of which (if you successfully decrypt a shard) grants you a legendary crafting spec for cyberware. This piece can be combined with the recipe you unlock from the spellbound side job
