Sinnerman is a side job in Cyberpunk 2077.


Not long after Life During Wartime, Wakako Okada will contact you with a rather unique gig: the customer wants to be there when you fulfill the job, to ensure his satisfaction with the result.

Make your way to a neutral meeting point and after some waiting Bill Jablonsky will arrive at 10 AM and reveal the target is Joshua Stephenson. Whilst driving to the location, a conversation arises during which you learn the man murdered Bill's wife and escaped death row because someone high up was able to bail him out of his intended jail term. As you might have guessed, Bill is less than professional, and so Joshua won't be alone at the location of the hit.

The police car you're after will then pass and you'll need to give chase for awhile before it stops near a blockade and Bill will demand you stop the car. However, he's so set on Joshua dying, he'll get out of the vehicle and try to take on the police officer protecting Joshua. Officer Vasquez will order Bill to stop and to not get close, but Bill will ignore this. If you don't intervene here, Vasquez will kill Bill once he's too close and Joshua can be heard crying out to stop shooting. If you do intervene, you can then help Bill take his revenge, but will lose access to the other side quests that open up with Joshua. Be aware that Vasquez is a high-ranking enemy equipped with a Sandevistan, and can be difficult to defeat, especially on higher difficulties. If skipping the rest of the questline is desired, you can simply ignore Vasquez, run towards the left side of the vehicle and shoot Joshua through the window with any weapon.

If you didn't stop Vasquez from killing Bill, an odd turn of events will play out where Joshua, Vasquez, and a woman named Rachel will argue that they need to get out of there and Joshua invites you to come with them. You can talk to him for a bit but eventually the group gets back into the police vehicle, and you can choose to go along or not. If you don't go along, the quest will end here and you won't be able to do Joshua's quests.

If you want to go along, get in the vehicle where you can talk more with Joshua to learn while he was in jail, he got into Christianity and realized all the harm he committed in the past and wants you to tag along for the day to talk to as his other companions aren't really helpful for that. He'll make sure Wakako and you are paid what Bill had originally put up for the contract if you accept this. At this point you can still choose to leave by asking for them to stop the vehicle, or agree to stay with him for the day. If you accept to stay, the quest will then conclude on arriving at Gloria's and start the next portion, There Is A Light That Never Goes Out.

Journal Entry[]

You're right about one thing - this job from Wakako stinks to high heaven. Besides, you're above doing plain ol' hit jobs. Probably no harm in talking to Bill Jablonsky and seeing what his deal is. But if I were you? I'd take a hard pass.


  • Talk to Wakako Okada.
  • Sit and wait for Bill Jablonsky.
  • Talk to Bill Jablonksy.
  • Follow the car.
  • Stop the car.
  • Exit car.
  • Follow Bill Jablonsky.
  • (Hidden) Neutralize Joshua Stephenson.
  • If Bill is killed and you go along for the ride:
    • Talk to Joshua Stephenson.
    • Get in the NCPD vehicle.
  • If Joshua dies:
    • Call Wakako


  • There are several advertisements around Night City for a BD called "The Passion". This quest possibly involves V and the making of this BD, depending on how the player chooses to complete this quest.
  • Along with BD advertisements there is a TV interview on Network News 54 with Rachel being questioned about the event.
  • If the player does not want to deal with the follow-up quests, they can simply let Vasquez shoot Bill, then kill Joshua after he leaves the van; alternatively, players can simply run alongside the van and shoot Joshua through the window. Wakako will reward the player with a monetary reward (that scales with level) if Joshua dies, regardless of what the quest marker says.


The title of this job comes from the Nina Simone song "Sinnerman."


  • Sometimes when Wakako calls you about this job, the audio and subtitles won't appear when she explains what the job actually entails.
