Dazed and Confused is a side job in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty.


This section requires expanding. Click here to add more.

After starting You Know My Name, V is contacted by Mr. Hands that he has received an interesting item of business. Lina Malina, a local Braindance celebrity, claims that she has been kidnapped and is currently held against her will in a rental studio by the name of Brainporium.

Brainporium can be found atop Jason Exiled in Dogtown, Pacifica.

Inside the Brainporium, V can find Edgar Tool, a man being held captive in a room claiming that he's Lina Malina. V can ask Shank who's standing guard outside about what's going on, and Shank will lead V upstairs to can explain the situation. Alternatively, V can convince Shank to let Tool go, or use the code 1111 on the door, though this will end the mission early with no rewards beyond a thank you kiss from "Lina".

Shank will explain that Tool has been a big fan of Lina, but that after a power outage while watching one of Lina's BD's, Tool now believes himself to be Lina. After talking to Shank about Tool's situation, V is directed to Lina's apartment. Before she enters, a group of Scavs will be scattered around the area guarding the place. V has the option to:

  • Take out all the Scavs (If you hide their bodies Lina will act like they left, unaware of the bloodshed)
  • Explain to them the situation and get them to leave (StreetKid only)
  • Break in from an industrial shutter (20 Tech) or from the top of her apartment, then read about her schedule. V can use Lina's schedule to have the Scavs leave without bloodshed.

Either way, V will need the Scavs to leave and wait until dark. Lina will be disappointed by the disappearance of her guards when she arrives and V will have some options to convince her for the shoot:

  • Telling Lina the truth about Tool's condition will fail the quest.
  • You can pay her €$10,000 to participate in the braindance.
  • You can send her the picture you took of Kerry Eurodyne and Us Cracks to persuade her if I Don't Wanna Hear It has been completed.
  • She can be convinced by mentioning Rachel Casich if They Won't Go When I Go has been completed.
  • A Corpo V has an option to convince Lina to participate in the BD shoot.
  • With a high enough intelligence, you can hack the computer on her kitchen wall and add in the BD shoot to her schedule yourself. When Lina arrives, you can tell her that you've been sent by her agent to make sure she knows, which after checking her schedule she accepts without any further convincing.

Shank will arrange for the shoot the next day, and V can sleep the night at the nearby Kress Street Apartment. After reaching the Brainporium V finds Lina and Tool arguing, requiring V to direct the BD shoot.

  • Directing Lina to "Tell him that he's your sister" results in the best BD. Lina will leave Baby Boomer, and later gift you the Malina-mobile.
  • Directing Lina to "Convince him that he's a clone created by the FIA" results in an okay BD, but no further shoots. Lina will leave Baby Boomer, and later gift you Lina Malina's T-shirt.
  • Sending Tool's letter as Lina's lines result in a bad BD, with Lina leaving, but Tool restored to himself.

V has the option of calling either Viktor Vektor or Judy Álvarez about the situation. Either one will give the advice of inducing cognitive dissonance, and a new side objective to find an item with personal importance to Tool will appear.
