The Congressman task in Gray Zone Warfare is all about searching an area for a lost phone. So, here’s how you can complete it and the location of the smartphone.

The Congressman is a task given to you by Handshake in Gray Zone Warfare. It requires you to find the whereabouts of a lost smartphone that belonged to a Congressman with influence, who lost it during a party at the Mighnight Sapphire.

With sensitive information at stake, Handshake will ask you to get the phone back. So, here’s how to complete The Congressman task in Gray Zone Warfare.

Gray Zone Warfare: How to complete The Congressman task

To complete The Congressman task in Gray Zone Warfare, you’ll need to head to the Midnight Sapphire Hotel and look for a specific villa. After finding it, look for a phone inside the house and turn it over to Handshake to wrap up the quest.

Locating both the villa and the phone are the trickiest parts of this quest. Considering how well the phone is hidden, it might escape your attention even if you’re looking in the correct place.

The entire area is filled with identical buildings, so make sure to enter the one sitting on the coordinates. There are many interesting items you can pick up inside the villa besides the smartphone, but you will face AI enemies patrolling the area.

To find the lost smartphone in Gray Zone Warfare, enter Villa Erica from the front gate, head forward into the main hallway, and take a left. Now, keep walking until you reach the final room on the left side and head in. The smartphone is hidden behind a couch in this room. The couch is sitting right in front of a window which should help narrow down your search.
