While you make your way through the various missions in Cyberpunk 2077’s Phantom Liberty expansion, you’ll come across a lot of objectives that ask you to find something yourself, instead of having the game tell you exactly where to go. This can be nice, but also quite confusing. Here’s how to get into the ventilation shafts in Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty.

How to Enter the Ventilation Shafts in Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty

This objective appears during the quest The Damned, where you join Solomon Reed in infiltrating Slider’s hideout to try and contact Songbird. As you reach the entrance, you’re presented with several options. You can either head in through the front and go guns blazing, or you can try to take an alternate route and avoid combat altogether. To do the latter, you’ll need to get access to some ventilation shafts.

There are multiple ways to get into the ventilation shafts in Phantom Liberty. The first is to use a door on the right of the entrance and force it open. This will take 16 points in the Body skill, which you’re likely not to have already. If that isn’t possible, then you can try and get around and unlock the door for Reed on the other side.

To do this, you’ll want to head back out the front door and try and get on top of the overhang above. On top of the said overhang is a bit of construction equipment, leading to a hole that drops down below the door. From here, all you need to do is open the door for Reed and join him to get into the ventilation shaft. Good luck with the rest of the quest!
