Shadowrun Returns the Redmond Barrens Guide

Shadowrun Returns Find Jake’s Stash

From the area around the Organ Grinder, head east and then north to a point designated by the yellow marker. Go there and use Jake’s magcard to open the box. Get Jake’s stash. This will trigger off an easy fight with some potential looters. They have no chance against Jake and the hero. Hide behind cover and use the hero mage’s powers and Jake’s pinpoint accuracy and critical damage to annihilate the enemies.

After getting Jake’s stash, the hero can devote some time to do an optional quest by speaking to the man along the streets and then going east into the marketplace. Another fight will start by having the hero talk to the bully at the marketplace and aggressively triggering off the fight. Be rewarded with some nugen after this fight. Save the money to purchase items and special items to help in the main quest.

Shadowrun Returns Defeat the Halloweener Gang

There will be a Halloweener sentry who tries to stop the hero and Jake from entering the section. This will trigger off the fight with the Halloweener Gang. The tactics used in the fight is simple. Hide behind cover and proceed in a generally southeasternly direction towards the enemies. From behind cover, use the best magical attacks or weapons to take down the enemies.

When the minions are defeated, the boss troll called John Paul will emerge. He wields a mean looking cleaver and goes for Jake. Ignore cover and just launch as much attacks on the troll as possible. Eventually, he will be defeated. The hero will have the option of destroying him, or sparing him.
