Completing gigs in Dogtown is part of the Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty story campaign, and one of them, Dogtown Saints, sees you helping a local pastor rescue a doctor from a gang of scavs. It might seem an easy job at first glance, but things aren’t quite so simple. The doctor is of questionable morals, and those in the pastor’s care aren’t the only ones in need of it. In this guide we’ll go over your choices and how to complete Dogtown Saints in Phantom Liberty.

You get access to the Dogtown Saints gig shortly after unlocking the open world again following the Phantom Liberty tutorial with Myers. It’s located almost directly south of the derelict arena, and after you speak to Odell Blanco across the street from the Haven church, you’ll need to find your way inside to rescue the doctor, but there’s a wrinkle. A woman named Nika Yankovich is also inside, looking for her brother.

After speaking to Odell, you need to get into the clinic. There are two ways:

  • Force the front door open. You need 19 Body to pry the doors apart.
  • Go around the side and break in the back way.

The front door is the fastest way, as it’s relatively unguarded, but the side route is about as fast. You can either sneak past the enemies (like I did) or kill them. There’s no penalty either way. Going full non-lethal for Dogtown Saints does get you extra props from Mr. Hands, but no real additional rewards.

Once inside the clinic, either clear the enemies in the main chapel or avoid them and make your way downstairs. There will be a pair of additional enemies that you’ll need to neutralize, then go through the door at the back of the room across from the loot locker. The door you see on your left leads to both Nika and the doctor, as well as a delicate situation.

Nika has the doctor, Anthony, at gunpoint, and is demanding he return her brother. Defusing this conversation is one of many conversation challenges in Phantom Liberty, and there are two outcomes: you take out Nika or convince the doctor to give her brother back (though the brother himself is long dead).

There’s only one dialog tree I could find that ends up with Nika getting her brother’s body back. It goes like this:

  • Everyone chill when you enter the room.
  • Don’t seem too scared of you when Anthony gets up.
  • Least he didn’t suffer after Anthony tells Nika her brother’s fate.
  • Give Nika her brother as Nika punches Anthony repeatedly in the face.

If you follow this dialog chain, Anthony will give Nika the keycard to the morgue where her brother’s body is being held, but you’ve robbed the doctor of the brother’s cybernetics that could have been repurposed for others in need while giving the woman closure. You can return to Anthony now and speak to him briefly about the situation. After that, the quest follows a single line. Anthony will ask about the patients, and you are free to leave the clinic to complete the gig.

Should you decide to kill or knock out Nika, you can skip the dialog challenge, Anthony will thank you, and then immediately ask about the patients. Your reward from Mr. Hands is the same whether you help or hurt Nika, so which choice you ultimately make depends on how virtuous your version of V is. Johnny Silverhand himself will feel bad about the situation should you help Nika, saying the situation was lose-lose from the start.

Lose-lose situations are the purview of the Phantom Liberty expansion, as well as almost every part of the Cyberpunk 2077 story. Don’t expect good outcomes, and you’ll never be sad (until you’re sad anyway). I didn’t get any additional dialog or lore after completing Dogtown Saints, so whatever choice you make, be sure you’re satisfied with it.

That’s it for how to complete the Dogtown Saints gig. For more coverage of Phantom Liberty and Cyberpunk 2077, check out our guides on whether you should take the NUSA oath, how to beat the Chimera boss, and more in our guides hub.
