Brick is the former Maelstrom boss who was defeated by Royce. During The Pickup Main Job you’ll have the optional objective of freeing Brick. Here’s how to do just that.
You’ll find Brick locked in what looks like a small closet in the second big combat room. The left side of the room has two elevated subrooms with glass windows, and his door is right between them.
As for the locked door, you have two options:
- The door controls themselves can be hacked for a few RAM to remotely trigger it, opening up the door and gaining access to Brick.
- In the room with the detonator next to Brick, look on the center table on the right to find a closed laptop, and open it to read the emails – one of which is labeled “only you guys know”. This contains the code to the door – 9691
As you open the door, Brick will warn you that a laser mine is pointing right at him – if he moves, he dies. Look into the room on the right you can find a detonator on a table by the door. If you’re feeling pretty ruthless you can detonate it and kill Brick, otherwise disable it.
After you free Brick and disable the mine, mention that he technically owes you one, and he’ll promise to help you out if you ever meet up again after this – which means you probably will!
If you scan Brick, you may notice that the NCPD has a sizeable bounty on his head – 5,000 eddies! It’s up to you if you are looking to have people in your debt later on in your adventure, or if you want some cash up front now.
