Crafting is the primary way of obtaining tools, used by Aiden in combat or to disrupt enemys. In order to craft tools you will need to obtain certain components and unlock the ability to create them through Progression & Skills. There are a total of five components, each obtained either by purchasing them from shops or finding Items of Interest. The only exception to this is System Keys, which are only found by hacking citizen phones or rarely during campaign missions.
