Syntax Error Walkthrough
Find a Way to Reach The Pinnacle
This mission becomes immeditaely available after completing Trace Protocol, you'll still find yourself at the exMat Lab, in the previous room from where the terminal is, you need to call Kira via holophone so that she can brief you with your next job. You now need to reach the board members of the Ascent group which is located at The Pinnacle. To get there, simply go outside of the lab first and then take a cab to Highstreet, from there, go east towards the Arcology and you'll trigger a cutscene where you'll find the Grateful Abbott.
So it seems like Abbott is having a hard time trying to gain access since he lost is FOB and he needs it in order to get through. Grateful Abbott then asks you to find his FOB and he'll help you gain access to The Pinnacle, he also tells you that the Rojins have it and that it's back at the Corpzone.
After the cutscene, travel by foot or fast travel via taxi or train to the Corpzone. Now, simply ping the waymarker and head towards the marked area, you just need to go around and fight the enemies you encounter. The FOB is being held by a random enemy but your IMP will notify you once the enemy holding it is killed and drops the FOB . Once you obtain it, fast travel back to Highstreet and give Abbott the item - you'll now be able to reach The Pinnacle.
Reach the Ascent Group HQ
Now, you've reached The Pinnacle. Before you follow the waymarker and try to reach the Ascent Group HQ. Go to the east side of the area towards the overlooking park. You'll find a Cyberdeck upgrade there which is the Diva. It's at the right end side of the park as indicated on the image above - grab the item and then proceed to the Ascent Group HQ.
Prepare for battle here since there are multiple mechanical enemies such as the Light Monobot, Heavy Monobot and the establishment's defense system. Using your strong energy-based weapon will easily take out these enemies, and bringing the Augmentations Hyper Focus and Mono Ranger will help in survivability. Hyper Focus can slow down incoming bullets and the Mono Ranger will guide you in combat - simply kill all the enemies at The Grand Alley and head towards the Ascent Group HQ.
Next, go straight and reach the entrance of the boardroom where you'll find that it's locked due to it being on lockdown. Kira then tells you that it can only be opened via the Ascent Group's AGI. Go east, down the hall, and you'll find the room holding the AGI at the end of the hallway. The room before the AGI, you can find an Advanced Component on the shelf behind the desk, and inside the AGI room, just by the entrance is a Superiror Component. Once you've grabbed both components, approach the AGI and start the interface to trigger a cutscene. This also completes this main mission where Kira arrives and briefs you for your next task. Completing this mission rewards you with a large amount of XP - simply speak to Kira who's at the AGI room to trigger the next mission, Recompile.
