After acquiring a guard uniform from a dead guard, you can find it in your inventory under mission items. You have to have it on before accessing the drill chamber panel.

Don't forget to put your regular chest piece on afterwards, as the guard uniform replaces it.

Mission items... *sigh* man I looked for that thing forever.

I'm having the biggest difficulty defeating Targen's gang. I keep dying in that room, and when I rezzed in place, they immediately aggro'd again before I could rebuff. When I ran back in, they swarm me and I have no place to get cover.

Having exactly the same problem with Destroy the Droid Reinforcements. Abandoned the mission and restarted - now no problem - droids were easier.

Quest is glitchy. With the bombs in inventory and the uniform on, it wouldn't let me interact with the panel. However, I was in a holocall in front of the panel, and when it finished, the panel could be interacted with and I was able to continue the quest.
