Where to start the Space Oddity side mission in Cyberpunk 2077?
In order to start the “Space Oddity” side mission, you must have completed the “Playing for Time” main mission. Then travel to Rancho Coronado and go to the gas station. In the parking lot you meet some homeless people who found a briefcase.
It turns out to be one military case trades, which you can either buy from them or take from them free of charge by successfully intimidating them (subject to the corresponding constitution requirement). You get a third option if you chose the path of the street kid at the beginning of the game.
To open the case, you have two options. The most obvious is to hack the suitcase. But your intelligence value must be high enough for this. As a bonus, this approach means fewer enemies await you later in the mission.
If you can’t hack the suitcase, go around the gas station. In the corpse by the dumpsters you will find a splinter with which the suitcase can be opened.
Now you can look at the files on the laptop in the suitcase and that Run “launch.exe” program. This reveals the coordinates to an interesting locality. Like a UFO?
