[ctOS exploits] This skill tree focuses on abilities that will help you interact or manipulate various electronic objects around you giving you more infiltration, takedown, or escape options.

Auto-Takedown (T/A)

  • Botnet Resource Cost: 4

Remotely activate gates and steam pipes to block or disable pursuing vehicles.

Robot Exploits (T/G)

  • Botnet Resource Cost: 2

This will allow you to create a distraction using robot sentries. While within range of a robot sentry, press and hold L1 to get more options. The distraction effects are temporary but considerably longer than the distractions used on individuals. If you hacked a sentry and selected the option to “fall in love” with the nearby humans, it will ram nearby people. If the individual is armed, he/she will be forced to shoot the robot as well.

Traffic Control Exploit (A/G)

  • Botnet Resource Cost: 4

This upgrades the Auto Takedown with the ability to hack traffic lights to create accidents to stop pursuers. Press the square button when prompted

Massive System Crash (G)

  • Key Data: Gates Houseboats

When used, this skill shuts down all nearby city infrastructure for 30 seconds. No botnet resources is consumed but you have to wait for the skill to completely cool down before you can use it again. You also need to select it from the weapon wheel by holding the UP d-pad, select the skill, exit the weapon wheel then press R1 to use the skill.

System Crash Upgrade: Blackout (G)

  • Key Data: Jack London Square

This upgrades the Mass System hack. In addition to shutting down all nearby electronic infrastructure or objects, this ability also shuts down the lights in the area, reducing visibility which will allow you to sneak behind enemies for melee takedowns or create an opening for escape.

Security System Shutdown (G)

  • Key Data: New Dawn Facility

This ability allows you to shut down security systems like laser tripwires, motion sensors, etc. Press and hold the L1 button then press Triangle to use this ability while targeting a security system.

Botnet Savings: City Hacking (T/A/G)

  • Key Data: Fort Point

This reduces the botnet cost when hacking any city infrastructure or tech.
