Dirty Fred’s Stash is your objective for the Paranoia Reported Crime you can complete in the Watson, Little China area of Cyberpunk 2077.

Reported Crime Paranoia requires you to complete The Rescue story mission first. Once you do that, you’ll also want to complete other Watson District NCPD Scanner Hustles because these activities provide Shards you can read.

By reading them, you’ll unlock new locations, Gigs, and Reported Crimes. Paranoia is one of them, and Fred’s Stash is similar to R.J. Griffin’s Urn. After completing The Rescue Main Job in Cyberpunk 2077, you’ll have to find the [UNSENT MESSAGE] shard. This shard is obtained by clearing the NCPD Scanner Hustle west of the No-Tell Motel in Kabuki.

You should be able to spot it underneath a walkway. First, deal with the Thugs, then loot Dirty Fred’s body to get the [UNSENT MESSAGE], thus starting the CP2077 Reported Crime Paranoia.

Look for this NCPD Scanner Hustle or Reported Crime near the Drake Ave fast travel point in the northern part of Watson. On my map below, you can see that it’s near the border to Watson Northside.

When you get close to this location, you may be surprised that you won’t find anyone except for two goons in the back of a fast-food restaurant. That’s because this Crime is a bit different than the rest, and your goal is easy at first sight. Find, open, and loot Dirty Fred’s Stash to complete the mission or quest if you want. But where is it?

Where To Find Dirty Fred’s Stash in Cyberpunk 2077

Dirty Fred’s Stash in Cyberpunk 2077 is on top of a lower roof, which can’t be reached at first sight, except that it can. And I am going to tell you how. When you reach the location marked on my map, look for a building with a billboard on it. You can see it below, and it reads Turbo.

To get Dirty Fred’s Stash find the building with the Turbo sign.

On top of it is Dirty Fred’s Stash, a crate like many others in Night City. While facing the building in the image below, head right, and you’ll find a fast-food kiosk. In my picture below, you can see the said kiosk and a cable that connects the fast food restaurant and the building with the Turbo advertisement.

Use the cable to get to Dirty Fred's Stash

The cable is the bridge you’ll have to use to get to Fred’s Stash. So, what you have to do next is to go around the kiosk, and you’ll find some crates and dumpsters.

Climb on a dumpster by jumping, and you’ll reach the kiosk’s roof. Now, head to the bridge (cable) and use it to get on the roof where Fred’s Stash awaits you. Turn left when you get to the roof of the building, then head straight ahead. On the right side, you’ll see the stash pictured below and the Doctor Paradox Broadcast Excerpt Shard.

Loot Fred’s Stash, and you’ll find some great items; however, as with most CP 2077 rewards, they are random. Inside Dirty Fred’s Stash, we found a Rare Steel Pipe (Blue One-Handed Club) and a Blood Pump. The Blood Pump is a Circulatory System Cyberware implant used to restore health when activated.

That’s everything you need to know about Dirty Fred’s Stash and the Cyberpunk 2077 Paranoia Reported Crime, so make sure you don’t miss it. If you have questions, let us know in the comments section below, or visit our CP2077 Wiki for more guides, tips, and tricks.

Have Something To Add? Do It Here:

  1. For some reason V won’t grab the ledge for me, I’ve watched several clips now to see if I’m missing something but nope, “shes” just being awkward & just holding “her” hands up as though it’s just out of reach, I’m completely baffled by it =/

  2. There are some grey crates by a wrecked car that I climbed up on and the continued up until I reached the stash
