Riders on the Storm is a side quest in Cyberpunk 2077 given to you by Panam Palmer. Panam is first introduced to V during the ‘Life During Wartime’ main story mission. In order to receive the Riders on the Storm quest, you’ll need to have finished that quest first. However, the new side quest from Panam is a little more dangerous than the previous one. The mission involves saving Saul, the leader of the Aldecaldo clan. There’s danger, stealth, combat, and some romance if you play your cards right. Here’s how to complete this Cyberpunk 2077 side quest.
How to complete Riders on the Storm in Cyberpunk 2077
After completing her main story mission, Panam will call you about an urgent situation involving Saul. Apparently, the leader has been taken by the Raffens and is being held hostage at one of their outposts. Panam needs your help to bust him out unharmed.
To begin the quest, meet up with Panam at the Aldecaldo camp. She’ll take you through the area, and eventually, you’ll meet with Mitch, who has some recon video of the outpost where Saul is.
After going through the footage, make sure to ride with Panam to the outpost. Upon arriving, you’ll have to stealthily make your way to the main building where the Raffens are holding Saul. Panam will provide sniper cover from the outside.
To make it into the camp safely, we recommend using the green dumpster on the left side of the compound. Jump over the container and you’ll be right near the main building. However, you will have to take out some guards along the way. Make sure to try and do this as stealthily as possible.
After entering the building, head up into the control room to take control of the surveillance cameras and find Saul. Once this is done, turn them off and head down to the basement.
Here, you’ll find more enemies, and eventually, you’ll also find Saul sitting in a chair. Give him a shot of adrenaline, make your way up to the main floor, and wait for Panam to arrive with the van. Unfortunately, the Raffens have caught onto your plan, so they’ll be chasing you. Just make sure to shoot the drivers of the chasing cars and you’ll escape with no problem.
Once you’ve escaped the Raffens, the impending dust storm causes you, Panam, and Saul to find shelter in a little farmhouse. After turning on the power and heat, sit down next to Panam and listen to the argument between her and Saul. When prompted, take Panam’s side of the argument.
After the debate has concluded, Saul will leave and Panam will put her feet up on V’s legs. It’s at this point that you want to choose every flirty dialogue option possible. If you do so, nothing will really happen, but this sets up a romance option later in the game. If you don’t choose the correct dialogue options, romancing Panam becomes impossible. Also, if you chose the female version of V, you won’t have these dialogue options available to you.
That’s how to complete Riders on the Storm. Make sure to stay tuned to Daily Esports for more Cyberpunk 2077 guides and news.
