Life During Wartime is a main mission / job in Act 2 of Cyberpunk 2077.
The objective is to chase after Anders Hellman and interrogate him.
Here’s a walkthrough of Life During Wartime in Cyberpunk 2077.
Take out the drones
While Panam is driving, take out the drones.
She’ll get shot when she tries to repair the turret.
After the drones are gone, she’ll continue to head towards the AV.
Connect to the drone
After reaching near the AV, jack into the drone.
Scan the area
There are a lot of optional objectives here. You can scan for signs of the Aldecaldos, Kang Tao operatives and combat drones.
Most importantly, scan for Mitch and the crashed AV.
Defeat the Kang Tao operatives
There should be around five Kang Tao operatives that you have to take out.
Sneaking up to them doesn’t seem to work.
There’s also a combat drone to destroy.
Take out the turret
To take out the turret, go to the AV and look for the laptop at the side of it.
Use it to turn off the turret.
Once the objectives are done, wait for Panam to arrive.
Get in the AV
Head to the AV’s door and open it.
Talk to the pilot
You will see the pilot taking Mitch at gunpoint.
You can try to talk sense to the pilot but it will fail. Mitch will push him down and Panam shoots the pilot.
Talk to Mitch
Next, talk to Mitch.
Here, you can ask Panam to stay but she’ll insist in joining you.
Follow Kang Tao’s trail
To get the trail, scan the tracks first.
Then, grab a motorcycle or summon your car. Follow the visual trail of Kang Tao.
Defeat the Kang Tao operatives (optional)
You will then reach the airstrip with a couple of snipers. You can take them down, or just avoid them and continue following the tracks.
Follow the tracks
Continue following the tracks left behind.
Get into the gas station
You will eventually reach a gas station filled with soldiers.
The aim is to enter the gas station. It’s better if you can do it quietly as the place is swarmed.
Otherwise, you have a lot of people and drones to shoot.
Hellman is located in the garage. He is on the upper floor of the garage.
Open the doors and you’ll find him inside with his medic.
Knock him out
Go near him to knock him out. You have to choose the “knock out” option instead of trying to melee him.
Call Takemura after Hellman is unconscious.
Take Anders outside
Carry him out and you’ll see that the Aldecaldos gang is already outside, with Panam.
You can try to tell Saul that it’s not Panam’s fault that Scorpion died, but he will brush it off.
Talk to Hellman
After the cutscene, you’ll appear at the Sunset Motel.
Talk to Hellman first but he’ll tell you that he doesn’t have the cure.
Then, Takemura will come in. The mission ends here.
