Act 1

Big Brother

Shortly after completing the previous mission you’ll get a call from your sister Nicky to remind you that you’re late for a very important event, followed by another call from the always pleasant Jordi. Now check the map and make your way to the waypoint to the north to begin this mission.

After a short scene, enter the gated community and make your way to Nicky’s backyard for an emotional reunion. Afterwards, enter the house and check out the rooms for items and a funny toy in Jackson’s room you can hack. Meanwhile, Nicky will get a phone call that becomes heated enough for Aiden to want to listen in on the other end, so hack her phone to complete the next objective for a scene.

After a quick reunion with your sister and nephew (left) Nicky will receive a threatening phone call (right).

After triangulating the culprit’s location, hop in the car directly outside Nicky’s house and begin the chase.

Cunning Route - Crash by Hacking

If you purchased any hacking abilities that allow you to hack the environment, you can swiftly end this chase by hacking the lights to slow him down or hacking blockers to make the car crash. Either way, this is an effective way to end the car chase and then chase him on foot.

Defensive Route - Follow the Culprit

Instead of going on the attack, simply follow the culprit at a safe distance without causing a bunch of damage. This will eventually end when the man ditches his car and you will then need to chase him on foot.

Offensive Route - Make a Scene

Go on the attack and ram the car as you chase it. This will usually end with the culprit’s car crashing and becoming inoperable or you crashing and having to find a new car and continue the chase, likely either losing the target or never catching up to him until he ditches his car.

Chase down the culprit in your car (left) and then on foot to hack into his phone (right),

Once the man is on foot you can chase him down and take him down with a melee attack. You can now hack his phone to learn more about why he was after Nicky and then make a quick call to BadBoy17 to complete the mission.
