Ex-Factor is a Cyberpunk 2077 side job focused around Judy Alvarez. Ex-Factor can be considered a “main” or primary side job as it is part of the questline to romance Judy. However, if you didn’t pick a female character, don’t get too excited. Judy will only be romanced by a female V. Here is the Ex-Factor Side Job Guide for Cyberpunk 2077.

Ex-Factor Side Job Guide for Cyberpunk 2077

Ex-factor will become available to you after completing the “Both Sides, Now side” job. After completing “Both Sides, Now” Judy will message you after about 12 hours, and then you will get another message from her another 8 hours later. Some players have reported that Judy will not call to start the quest until you are very far from her apartment. So we suggest heading far south or to the badlands and doing some gigs while you wait, or just skipping time there.

Next, you will have to “Meet Judy on Clouds’ terrace in early morning.” You can skip your in-game clock between 5 AM and 8 AM and then head to Megabuilding H8 in Japantown. Head to the elevator and go to the 12th floor to Clouds.

Walk out of the elevator and make a left. Follow the markers to the scaffold. At the scaffold, make a right and then head up the ladder. Jump down and talk to Judy. She will lead you into Maikos office. 

Start your conversation with Maiko. You will have a different dialogue with her depending on whether or not you killed Woodman in the Automatic Love main questline. Either way, try and avoid hostility with her and complete the conversation. 

After your talk with Maiko, follow Judy out of the office and to the elevator. If you haven’t killed Woodman before, you will have the chance now. Take the elevator down to the maintenance level and confront Woodman. You will have a short conversation with him, and then Judy will attack him. He should be a pretty easy fight, kill him, and then leave the Megabuilding. 

That’s all there is to the Ex-factor side job guide for Cyberpunk 2077. Judy will contact again in about half a day to start the Talkin’ ‘Bout a Revolution side job.
