Talk To Dalton In Ryujin Industries

Find Dalton Fiennes and talk to him. He will assign you a mission to infiltrate the Ryujin Towers as an anonymous outsider and run a program provided by Nyx on Ularu's computer. The Tower's ventilation system will be unlocked during that time and can be used to avoid detection. You will also get a Disruptor to avoid casualties.

Meet Nyx At Madame Sauvage's Place

You can Pay 2500 Credits or Persuade Nyx instead to lower it to 1000 Credits to get the program. Once acquired, you'll only need to run it on Ularu Chan's computer, and the program will handle the remaining tasks.
