Act 1

Hacking Contract

Jordi’s asked us to help him with a little contract, but when you reach the rendezvous the missions is locked due to an invasion. It appears that someone is hacking you and before you can continue you’ll need to track him down and take him out.

Start by heading down the street under the L-train to a purple search area.

Once you enter the search area the culprit will begin their hack and you’ll have limited time to find them. Luckily, this is only a tutorial and the hacker stands out in the crowd easily, running around on the stone plaza. Find 2XTheTap by identifying them with your Profiler, marked in red, and then chase them down. If you fail to take him out quickly the foot chase will soon become a vehicle one.

Head to the purple search zone (left) to identify the hacker and then chase him down (right).

With the hacker taken down, the game will bring up the tutorial for hacking other players. If you wish to avoid this you can play offline, though this will lock you out of the online missions as well.
