Watch Dogs [cheats]
The high stakes poker game in the north part of The Loop has a big buy in but you can make plenty of cash. While you're not dealing, hack into the camera on the left side of the room and use it to check how stressed the other players are, including what cards are being dealt and held. You can then play your cards using those advantages.

Easy XP and Level 50:
Leave the hideout next to the river and train tracks. Turn around, and run to the highway. Kill the civilians in their vehicles to raise your wanted level. The higher your wanted level is the more XP you earn when you escape the police. As long as the civilians stay in their vehicles, the police will not be called. Turn around, and proceed down the freeway until you reach the train tracks below. Keep killing the civilians in their vehicles until the wanted level is full. When the wanted level is full, proceed to the L-Train Station. Jump over the fence, and steal any vehicle. Once you obtain a vehicle, get caught by the yellow scan to send the maximum number of cops after you. Smash through the fence, and drive down the tunnel. Stop on the left side of the tracks, and wait inside your vehicle until the train appears. Start
driving backwards so the train can enter the tunnel. The train will not hit your vehicle. Leave the vehicle, and enter the train. This is where you will be leveling up. When the white scan ends, you will be rewarded with 300 XP for "Police Evasion".
Run to the end of the tunnel while you are in the train. When the white scan ends, wait for the helicopter to leave your area, then shoot the ground to cause the white scan to appear again, giving the cops another 50 seconds to find you. Since you are in an area where the cops will not find you, you simply just have to wait the 50 seconds to be rewarded with another 300 XP. Repeat this process as many times as desired. Note: There are times when the wanted meter will decrease. This is because you took too long to shoot the ground. If this happens, just kill one of the civilians in the train to get your wanted level back to the maximum level. Additionally, Watch Dogs does not autosave when you level up. You have to go back to the hideout and sleep to save your progress. Thus, it is recommended to save every ten levels to a void any
chance of losing too much progress.

How to Escape Level 5 Police Chases:
-=Method #1: Train Escape=-
One of the easiest methods for escape involves the raised L-Line trains throughout the city. After raising your wanted level to 5, hop into a train and ride it to safety.
-=Method #2: ctOS Building Underground Garage=-
Travel to the ctOS multi-floored pavilion in The Loop. Bring a car to escape through the front door when you have full stars. You’ll also need to be able to activate vehicle blockers and garage doors. Start on the upper floor and start causing havoc. Go on a rampage with your weapons to draw in the police. Continue to fight with the police on the upper floors until your wanted level increases to 5. Once you do, hop in the car and travel to the road directly west of the building. There’s a small underground parking lot north of the train station with blockers and a garage shutter. Drive to the underground lot, activate the blockers to stop any pursuing cars, then hack the garage shutter. Raise it, drive in, then lower it and park. Once you’re behind the garage door, run to the locked door on foot, unlock it by hacking the switch console,
then wait in the hallway until you’re clear.
-=Method #3: Parking Lot Hiding Spot=-
Any of the tall parking lots work. After hitting wanted level 5, drive to a high floor of the lot. The third or fourth floor will do. Don’t go to the open-air top floor or you’ll be spotted by helicopters. Stay below a roof and select to hide in your car once the police have lost sight. Sit and hide until they give up the chase.
Rabbids Easter Egg:
In the mission "Big Brother," while you're inside the house, walk into Jack's room (it's on the end of the hall to the left) and you can interact with a Rayman: Raving Rabbids toy. Turn it on and it will make the characteristic scream for which the rabbids are known.
Easy XP Farming:
* When you start at your hideout near the river and train tracks, leave and head west for the nearby highway. Purposely raise your ctOS wanted level by killing civilians while they are still in their vehicles; this is important, as this prevents the police from arriving until you are ready.
* Make your way north along the highway when your wanted level is full until the L-train station is to the west. Head for the L-train tracks and arrive near the station itself, then steal any vehicle from a civilian on the road and allow yourself to be caught by the yellow police scan. Use the car to smash through a wooden fence just to north of the station and drive into the train tunnel, sticking to the leftside tracks.
* Wait in the tunnel and look for an oncoming train. Start driving backward to allow the train to enter (it won't ram your car), then when the train itself is inside the tunnel, exit your stolen vehicle (leave it in the tunnel!) and run ahead to enter the train itself. Make your way to the end of the train. The scan should be white and nearly back down to 0-10 percent at this point; let it run out to be awarded with 300 XP for successfully escaping the police.
* Wait for the helicopter to leave your minimap, then shoot the ground with your gun to trigger the white scan again. Now simply wait for the scan to run out, shoot the ground again, and repeat for another 300 XP each time! If your cTOS level decreases, you didn't shoot the ground fast enough so you'll have to kill another civilian on the train to raise it back up. The timeframe you have to shoot the ground to trigger the white scan starts small, then increases as you gain more and more levels making the trick longer (but no less simple) to pull off at high levels.
* Note that because the game does not autosave your progress, it's a good idea to manually save back your hideout every now and then while farming XP this way.
How to Cheat at Poker & Earn Easy Money:
* To make lots of money, travel to the High Stakes Poker game in The Loop district. This is a game of Texas Hold ‘Em, and the stakes are higher, meaning your earning potential is greater here than at any other betting minigame.
* Sit down in the bar and start playing. But there’s a way to cheat. Look up and slightly left, above the bar top, to hack a camera watching the game.
* From this camera, you can look at each of your opponents and read their stress levels with Facial Recognition. Generally, higher stress levels means the targeted opponent has worse cards — they’re bluffing.
* You can also see at least two of your opponents’ cards directly by zooming in
with the camera. It should make knowing when to fold and when to stay in much easier.
-=Earning 30,000$+ is easy. Remember to=-
1.Go to the High Stakes Poker game in The Loop
2.Use the Camera above the bar.
3.Use Facial Recognition to gauge stress levels.
4.Zoom in to see your opponent’s cards.
Use this handy hack to earn big money in poker.
Aisha Tyler easter egg:
During the Campaign Mission "Wrench in the Works", Aisha Tyler can be seen talking to another NPC. Aisha is a well-known voice actress that has worked on many films, tv shows, and games, including Halo: Reach and Gears of War 3. She also appears in a hotel room or lounge talking on the phone. There is a City Hotspot in the City Hall building in the Loop district, and near it an unmarked 'intrude' console which you can hack. Do so to watch Aisha on the phone talking about farts and being followed.
Escaping Level 5 cop pursuits:
When being chased by cops at Level 5, go to the closest L-Line train platform and jump into one of the trains. If one isn't near, locate a tall parking garage and drive to one of its top floors, but not the open roof level. Stay below a roof and hide in your car until the police have lost sight of you. Stay hidden there until the police give up.
Getting three star rank in Chess Survival: Puzzle 1:
In Chess Survival: Puzzle 1, you will face two rooks and a king. To get a three star rank, you must make four moves without getting checkmated. Move your king up and to the left, and your opponent will be forced to waste a turn moving a rook to avoid being captured.
Reputation rank requirements:
The following number of points are required to obtain the indicated reputation rank. You are considered "Incognito" at 0 points.
* Protector: 5
* Vigilante: 10
* Sentinel: 25
* Anarchist: 5
* Menace: 10
Electrical Sign Hacks:
Hacking any blank electronic sign in the city generates a random message, usually a wink or inside joke from popular culture. Over sixty of these unique massages exist, and appear at random as hacks are activated.
First, obtain the ATM Hack Boost, Profiler Optimization, and ATM Hack Boost Plus hacking skills. Then, go to the Navy Pier Mall at the north-eastern area of the map. Walk around the mall, and hack all of the shoppers bank accounts. You can obtain 175,000+ one time around the mall. Repeat this process as many times as desired. Next, go to any ATM to claim the money from all the hacked bank accounts. This will release the money for you to spend on anything desired. Note: Make sure to often sleep/save at any hideout to avoid losing any progress. Additionally, you will also obtain all of the SongSneak collectibles
using this trick.
Clearing gang hideouts:
Use the cameras near the entrance and inside the gang hideouts to help plan the best strategy. Tag the gang members to get an idea of their strength and locations. Use Jammers to prevent civilians from calling the police before beginning to clear the hideout. Also, make sure that you have located and profiled the gang leader before starting. Additionally, shoot out the tires of nearby cars to prevent the gang leader from easily escaping. Once you are ready to clear the hideout, lure anyone guarding the entrance away, and use
stealth to defeat them (silenced weapon is recommended). Hide the body, then repeat for any other entrance guards. Hack available items, and use explosions to cause a distraction and/or kill gang members. You can then stealth kill gang members that are preoccupied with the explosion. After killing enough gang members, the gang leader will attempt to flee. When this happens, try to carefully knock him out while killing any remaining attacking gang members.
Easy "Dressed In Peels" mission:
In the "Dressed In Peels" mission, after Jordi calls you, immediately leave the prison. This must be done before the police arrive at the entrance. After leaving the building, immediately go to the right, run downstairs, and enter the car. Drive out of the parking garage, go to the nearby train station, and hack a train. If a train is not available, run on the rails until you find one, but avoid the helicopter. Having the helicopter hack will help, as it will continue to follow you even after you are riding the train before eventually giving up the chase.
Play Act 2: Mission 9 - "Uninvited", and meet Jordi for the explosives. This will trigger a cutscene. Skip the cutscene by pressing B. Destroy the truck with IEDs. After destroying the truck, you will get the "Reach the Sienna Brick Factory" objective. All missions in Watch Dogs normally have a warning zone that you cannot leave. If you leave the mission zone, you will have 15 seconds to return to the mission zone or else the mission will fail. However, when you get the "Reach the Sienna Brick Factory" objective, the warning zone will
not appear for this part of the mission. Thus, you can now explore the map without any police appearing.
Flaming horsey ride:
At the Pawnee area in the northwest section of the map, there is an abandoned "Horsey Ride" that you can hack. Doing so will activate it and it will shoot flames from the front and rear.
Easy shell game wins:
Due to the way the game's graphics engine renders items, you can use the following trick to easily win the shell game (where you have to watch a ball being moved around between three cups and guess where it is located). Turn up the graphics settings to full under the options. Then, play a shell game, and pause the game after the ball has been moved and you must choose a cup. When you pause the game, you will see the ball has been rendered underneath one of the cups. You may also need to turn up the brightness on your TV/monitor
to see it more easily. Simply pick the cup the ball is underneath to win the game. This trick works on all difficulty levels of the shell game.
Digital Trip Barrier Trick (Alone):
There is a Digital Trip you can activate, called Alone. In it, you must free numerous districts. The robots within each district cannot pass beyond certain barriers or they will die. Use that fact to your advantage. Enter a district, wait for a group of robots to spawn, then lead them on a chase that ends outside the barrier. When they follow you, they'll die as they attempt to pass through the barrier. You don't receive any points or equipment as a reward, but there's a delay before more robots will appear and you can use that to engage in more meaningful activities within the districts, before the threat level
increases again. That makes it much easier to approach the generators.
Easy "Alone" digital trip:
While being followed by some robots in the "Alone" digital trip, enter a dark zone, then exit the dark zone, and the robots should be standing still in the barrier separating the light and darkness. Use this time to shoot the robots without worrying about taking damage.
Easy "Role Model" mission:
In the "Role Model" mission, hack the cameras in the parking lot and inside the building to find all the guards (two on the balcony and eight around the perimeter). Use the explosives in the environment to kill as many guards as possible. Two cars with eight additional enemies will arrive after guards have been killed. If your hacking skill is high enough, use steam vents and other hackable items to kill them in the parking lot before they can exit their
cars. You can also shoot them as soon as they exit the cars from a vantage point on the second floor in the building. Once all enemies have been killed, go to the third floor. Access the hacking point by the door at the top of the stairs to unlock the door where Jackson is located.
You can unlock additional outfits by completing each of the Digital Trips, as indicated below.
Madness - Survive all phases.
Spider Tank - Clear all missions.
Alone - Hack all towers.
Psychadelic - Clear all 17 tracks.
Skill Points Exploit:
Buy plenty of ammo at any store that sells it, and earn yourself a wanted level. Hide out in your safe house, in the bathroom. After a cooldown, you can fire your weapon outside and your wanted level will return. Let your wanted level experience another cooldown, then fire your weapon out the window again. Repeat as desired.
License plate reference:
The license plate on the car Aiden obtains after the "Role Model" mission in Act 2 reads "N3XU5", which translates to "Nexus". Nexus was Ubisoft's working title for the game.
Easy Shell Game Win:
Begin playing the shell game and let the hustler finish moving the cups around. Without indicating which cup you believe hides the shell, pause the game and access the Options menu. Under calibration, set brightness to 100 and then unpause the action. Next, pause it once more. For a brief second, you should see the outline of the ball in one of the available cups. Choose that cup to win the round.
When In Shell Cup game you find on the streets, you might lose the ball and lose money.... BUT if you do lose the ball just press the pause button, it has a x-ray type theme that will show you which cup the ball is in.
Easy online notoriety:
Use the profiler to scan all high profile targets (blue squares) until you find a "Blume Affiliate" profile. Hack the affiliate, and allow them to call the Blume operator. This will force an "Online Hacking" invade upon the call ending. Use Focus to see when someone is in your game or not, due to the fact Focus does not work when another player invades your game. Use the profiler to find your online invader and gain the bounty if you find the player (usually 30-50 XP). For more of a challenge, you can allow them to hack you and try to gain
more XP depending on the player.
This glitch works in most garages and allows you to exit out of the map. The garage must have a garage door and a walkway door just to the right of the garage door. Pull a large sized deliver truck into the garage with the front end facing the far back wall. Back the delivery truck up against the walkway door as tightly as possible. Get out of the truck, climb on top of it, and position yourself so you are at the back of the truck facing the walkway door. Just to the right is a cement wall you can climb up, allowing you to exit
the map into the building. Note: When exiting the map into the building, you can only go inside this building and anything attached to it. In order to return to the map, you either have to go back down the exact way you entered, kill yourself, or restart from the last save. This glitch can be helpful in multiple ways. 1. At just the right angle you can hack cameras and force an invade by hacking a "Blume Afilliates" profile to get easy online notoriety. 2. Get the police called on you, then exit the map. The police cannot shoot
at you, nor can you shoot at them. They will eventually give up searching for you. Shoot the wall before the search ends to get easy XP. Repeat this as many times as desired.
Hack the blockers at the right time and you can flip a car so that it is resting upside down. When you do that, a driver will exit and leave the scene. Flip the car again, though, and it should drive away after a few seconds (without a visible driver).

There is a Digital Trip you can activate, called Alone. In it, you must free numerous districts. The robots within each district cannot pass beyond certain barriers or they will die.
