Cyberpunk 2077: How To Free Brick And Disarm Trap

Find Brick

When you're escaping All Foods during the mission, Brick will be held in a room nearby.

The objective appears when you're close to the door, but you'll need to use scanner mode to open it.

Scan the door terminal and select "Remote Deactivation" to open it up so you can rescue him.

Disarm Trap

Unfortunately, Brick is tied up to a mine that'll blow him sky-high if he moves.


If you've put enough attributes into your Technical Ability stats, you can simply disarm it.

Failing that, the detonator is in an adjacent room and you can disarm it from there (or blow him to smithereens if you'd like).

Provided you're feeling merciful, Brick is now free.
