The Ascent Linus Pizza Palace is a landmark in Gratitude and a location you’ll need to find in order to retrieve a Hidden Stash which is your objective for The Stash side-mission.
If you just started your journey in the video game developed by Neon Giant, then the Gratitude Linus Pizza Palace may prove a bit difficult to find; but throughout the guide below, I’ll tell you where to look for it and also where to find the Hidden Stash.
Before we begin, though, let’s go over some general details about this side mission.
What Is The Stash?
The Stash is a fetch side mission in The Ascent.
When Should You Start The Stash Side Mission?
The recommended level for this side mission is 5, so it’s best to play it after Mutual Dependencies main mission.
What Is Inside The Hidden Stash?
An Old Gun you’ll have to bring back to Iris.
What Do You Get For Completing The Stash?
For finishing this side mission, you’ll get 2.500 XP and the Scorcher Weapon.
Where To Find Gratitude?
Gratitude is a district in Tier: Warrens. You’ll find it west of Cluster 13, but to get there, you’ll have to cross the Rooftops.
Where To Find The NPC (The Stash Quest Giver)?
The quest-giver is found east of the Grinder, as you can see on my map below.
Although he is dead, he carries a datapad you’ll need to collect to start the quest.
Look for him in a small room, also pictured below.
How To Get To Gratitude In The Ascent
Assuming you want to complete this mission as fast as possible, then you may want to learn how Fast Travel works in The Ascent.
That’s because the fastest way is to use the train service.
As such, if you don’t want to walk for quite some time, you’ll want to head to the Train Station north of your current location, then select No Man’s Land, which is the closest station if you did not unlock the one at Nitroad.
Simply put, I’ll assume this is the first time you visit Gratitude, so travel to No Man’s Land and head south.
The next district you’ll unlock is Gratitude, and if you open your map, you’ll see the search area below.
Where To Find Linus Pizza Palace
When you get close to the search area, descend the stairs to the lowest floor.
Now, head southeast to spot Linus Pizza Palace. Look for the billboard that is hard to miss.
Again, you can see it below, close to a Loot Chest.
How To Get The Hidden Stash (Open Locked: Ice -1 Door)
The Hidden Stash you’re looking for is found in the back room, but there is a Locked Ice 1 door that stands between you and the quest item.
To open it, press and hold Y on your Xbox controller to hack the door.
This door doesn’t require a high-level Cyberdeck, so you can hack it with the one obtained automatically while playing the first two main missions.
Once inside the backroom, pick up the Old Gun from the desk, and you’ll be prompted to speak to Iris.
Where To Find Iris
Iris is located in the Cluster 13 area, which you can reach using the Train Station nearby or by crossing the Rooftops district on foot.
When you get back to Cluster 13, head to the pub (where you bring in the Bounties), and next to the bartender, you’ll find Iris in the screenshot below.
Once you talk to Iris, The Ascent Stash side-mission ends, and you’ll receive the corresponding rewards listed above.
