Here are our Hints for Watch_Dogs on Playstation 4. The most trustworthy items get the most 'thumbs up' from our users and appear nearer the top!
If you're low on money, you can play poker in the Loop and hack into the security camera to see your opponents' cards. You can also hack into the bank accounts of rich NPCs to get more money. Getting more money should never be a big problem, so don't save it when there are things you need to buy.
Don't explore the city right away. Instead, complete the "Open Your World" mission, to open up all of your skill possibilities.
If you have lost your vehicle or need to get somewhere fast (or if you are being chased), you can hack trains at any point on the tracks to start/stop them. If you're up high, you can hop on the roof of the train instead.
Hack into cameras to see where your enemies are and kill them from a distance. Use stealth whenever possible. You can lure enemies into traps, trigger their own grenades, and more. Silenced weapons are also an option.
In addition to being useful in combat, hacking cameras can also help you find new paths for you to take and unlock doors. You can move from camera to camera, and even move to a camera in a different building.
If you're in a tough fight, knock out the power with a blackout. Your enemies will be startled and disoriented, which will give you the advantage.
Keep a grenade launcher with you in case you find yourself up against tough enemies or enemies in vehicles. You should always have a silenced pistol and an assault rifle with you, as well. Having good weapons should be your priority.
When you use the hacking profile, some people will be marked with a blue box. It is beneficial to hack these people you might get money or unlockable vehicles/weapons/songs.
Focus is a very useful skill. It's a good idea to unlock it as soon as you can, so you can use it to slow down time and plan out your strategies.
Be sure to devote some of your skill points toward driving, as you can't use a weapon while in a vehicle. You'll want to increase your vehicle's defense, and pick out a few other upgrades to secure yourself on the road.
Once you've use some skill points on Focus and driving, you should concentrate on your hacking skills. Crafting is another useful skill to improve, and you might want to prepare for tougher battles later on by unlocking the skill that will allow your melee attacks to kill enforcers.
As soon as you can, hack into the ctOS stations and towers to expand your reach across the city, enable fast-travel, and get new sidequests.
Hack lifts and forklifts to carry yourself up to rooftops. Once you reach the roof, lower the lift/forklift so your opponents (whether they are NPCs or other players in multiplayer) won't be sure you've gone up. Use your high vantage point to keep an eye on them and take them by surprise.
You receive Reputation ranks when you earn a certain amount of Reputation points.
