Like Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky, CD Projekt Red too was able to redeem itself by fixing the plethora of optimization and technical issues Cyberpunk 2077 had at the time of its launch. Studio Trigger’s Cyberpunk: Edgerunner certainly invigorated a lot of newfound interest in the game, and with the release of Phantom Liberty, Cyberpunk 2077 saw a rise in player numbers. In fact, at the time of publishing this, Cyberpunk 2077 achieved a 24-hour peak player count of 59K+ players (data sourced from SteamDB). Considering CP2077 is a single-player title, that kind of number is nothing to scoff at. While the game has more or less fixed its optimization issues, we do get reports of mostly quest-related bugs once in a while. And the latest one happens to be occurring during the Addicted to Chaos quest.
For the uninitiated, Addicted to Chaos is a side job or quest that was added to the game with the release of the Phantom Liberty DLC. It’s a pretty short quest and one that’s only available after completing “The Man Who Killed Jason Foreman” gig. The side job is mainly about getting some of Leon Rinder’s stuff, which also includes the quest reward, Dezerter. However, a bug is making it nearly impossible for players to get the reward for sparing Rinder’s life. The bug mostly seems to be occurring for players who have the latest Patch 2.02 running. So, is there a fix yet? Continue reading to find out!
Cyberpunk 2077 2.02 Addicted To Chaos Quest Bug: Is there any fix yet
Players will have to try the following workarounds as the devs have yet to acknowledge this issue. Try these and see if any of them are of help.
Refrain from updating to 2.02 –
The most obvious thing to do here is to simply wait until the bug is fixed and enjoy 2.01 for now. But this is only possible if you have yet to download the patch. If you’ve already downloaded the patch, then you will have to try another workaround.
Use the Cyber Engine Tweaks mod –
Only PC players will be able to use this method since you are going to use the Cyber Engine Tweaks mod. First, download and install the mod on your PC. Next, head to Linder’s garage door and focus your camera on it. Now you need to open CET and type in or copy the following command:
msg = function(text) PreventionSystem.ShowMessage(text, 3.0) end TTLO = Game.GetTargetingSystem():GetLookAtObject(Game.GetPlayer(), false, false) if TTLO == nil then PreventionSystem.ShowMessage(‘LOOK AT THE DOOR FIRST’, 3.0) return end D = TTLO:ToString() if D == “Door” then TTLO:OpenDoor() msg(‘DOOR DETECTED, OPENING! \nIF IT IS STILL CLOSED USE THE COMMAND “FORCE DOOR/FAKE DOOR OPENING”‘) elseif D == “FakeDoor” then msg(‘FAKE DOOR DETECTED, USE THE COMMAND\n”FORCE OPEN THE DOOR / FAKE DOOR”‘) elseif D ~= “Door” and D ~= “FakeDoor” then msg(‘THIS IS NOT A DOOR’) end
Once you have entered the command, the garage door should open, allowing you to take everything available in there.
Use a remote deactivation cyberdeck –
Console players and those who are playing the game with no mods can use a Cyberdeck with Remote Deactivation installed on the garage door, and it should open. However, if it doesn’t, then try the next method.
Reload a previous save –
If you happen to have a save before The Man Who Killed Jason Foreman quest, load it. Or if you are about to start that quest, make a save. Next, avoid passing by the garage door and Terra Cognita, so as to avoid any kind of bug trigger. Now, just complete the gig properly, spare Linder’s life, and so on. Once Linder texts you the garage code, head to the garage location and get your reward there. Hopefully, this time the bug won’t trigger, and you will be able to get the rewards.
Fast travel –
If the garage door doesn’t open after entering the code, you should fast-travel to someplace else and return. The code will most probably work now, following which the garage door will open and you will be able to access the rewards inside.
For now, that’s all we have on this topic. After getting the Dezerter, why not try acquiring the Thermal Katana? After all, nothing looks cooler than slashing your enemies to pieces with a flashy katana like this. Lastly, don’t forget to follow DigiStatement for more guides like this.
