Watch_Dogs 'Online Hacking' Exploit Revealed

neildee250 writes: "Watch_Dogs campaign has been well received by the community with Ubisoft's best ever sales figures, however, once the campaign finishes and you jump into the online hacking contract world, things get a little silly.

The forums are full of complaints as people battle it out for the league rankings on the game - unfortunately, right there, is where the exploit exists. Let me explain.

Once you go into 'Online Hacking' there comes a point when you may want to come out of it.

e.g. I watched Ellohime hit 100K followers and leave online hacking so he could chat to his Twitch followers for a few minutes."

Not really too bad, it just reset your stance.

What I hate about online hacking is when they get you a target, and he is no where good for it. One time I had a guy in the middle of the ocean and he just stopped and sat there when it alerted I came. As you can imagine, one random person swimming out to him, wonder who the intruder is?

It's even worse when that happens in tailing. Tailing is super fun when its a crowded place or places to hide, but when they get the advantage and run to a wide open area where no one is, it becomes too hard. I just think a simple fix would be to have the AI act out more. Have them run, or roam to random spots, etc... so an actual player doesn't stick out so bad.

liked your comment, you showed a problem and gave a possible solution for it instead of moaning like most people do.

This explains so much. I've been playing WAY too much and am currently sitting at 22nd in the world. So when I saw the top of the leaderboard and see that they have almost 4 times as many points as me in half the time, I got really confused.

I guess I'll have to wait for them to clear the leader boards of players who have reset.

The online in this game is super fun, they really should have made a mode similar to the fixer side quest where you are both in cars and you have to stay close to download the data then wreck and kill them, that would have been way fun against a human opponent.

I know it has its issues but this game is still worth every penny. Anyone agree?

DFogz842d ago

They have that mode, it's called Online Decryption.

You don't have to stay in your car, and killing your target to steal the data is acceptable. However there can be up to 8 (i think, maybe 6?) players all after the same data packet, it's not just 1v1 like the fixer contracts.
It gets pretty crazy sometimes trying to chase guys around the city while trying to stay close enough to steal the info and simultaneously box out the other players and try to not get yourself killed in the process.

If you're hacking someone else, be sure to avoid blowing steam pipes or electrical objects. They can cause damage to your opponent, either willingly or not, and cause you to immediately lose the match.

I once accidentally ran my victim over and still managed to successfully hack him. lmao
