How to Fix Killing In The Name Bug (Hack the Router) in CP2077


When you are supposed to scan the area for clues about Swedenborg, players are unable to scan the router or hack it. How to Hack the Router? Here’s how to fix the Router bug in Killing in the Name quest:


1. Check if your Cyberware lets you do quickhacks – if not, go to a Ripperdoc and change it to something that will let you hack things easily. Choose an OS that supports quickhacking instead of something like Berserk which doesn’t allow it.

2. If you still get the Killing in the Name bug related to the router hack, you need to reload an earlier save where you haven’t begun this mission yet. When you go to Nancy’s coordinates, make sure to talk to Johnny without skipping forward and also don’t talk to anyone else. This will lower the chances of you getting the Killing in the name router bug in Cyberpunk 2077. Hopefully, you will be able to interact with it and scan the area.


Apart from this, if you come across a bug where Johnny is not appearing in Killing in the Name quest, then you need to load a previous save where the mission has not yet begun. This will possibly allow Johnny to spawn and the quest will continue as required.
