V and Reed are really on the sh*tlist now, but that won't stop them. The next part of the plan is quickly established back at the hideout, and as always, it's up to V to get the dirty work done. Following another brief 'meeting' with Songbird, V sets off to checklist a series of very important objectives.

Below you'll find an overview of the Main Quest, Birds with Broken Wings, which includes a point-by-point Walkthrough, along with additional information that may influence your progress.


  • Go to Alex's hideout
  • Talk to Reed and Alex, listen to their story if you want
  • Go over the mission plan
  • You can ask Reed to repeat key points after the briefing
  • Leave the hideout
  • Speak with Songbird, gaining 3 Relic skill points in the process
  • You can now go to the transmitter, or meet with Songbird
  • If you meet with Songbird first, you'll be given an additional quest objective, allowing you to call Reed before heading to the transmitter (although the call will still happen either way)
  • The transmitter is surrounded by Voodoo Boys, who you'll need to take care of before hacking the device
  • Get the next transmitter coordinates from the call with Alex
  • You might have to take out the 6th Street gang members before heading to the roof
  • Talk to the girl if you like
  • Hack the transmitter
  • Give the girl 1,000 eddies if you want hints on where the power switch is
  • If you'd rather find it yourself, go to the end of the building's roof in the direction the girl is looking — the switch just on the other side of the power box
  • Hack the transmitter again
  • Reed will call in a couple of hours
  • You'll also get a message from Alex — you can go talk with her if you want while you wait for Reed's call
  • Take Reed's call and tell him about Songbird's situation, if you didn't call Reed earlier
  • Head to the clinic
  • Speak to Reed
  • Check the jar to the right of the room for some... interesting insight
  • Start the procedure
  • Chat with Johnny
  • Quest complete
