Been having some fun messing around with people on these. Best thing you can do for yourself is learn where you can hide on top of things or any other clever tricks. You'll end up having a lot of fun with this once you get good at finding places to hide in.


So as you're aware, the objective is to invade someone and hack their phone and reach 100%. You may be tempted to rush this but you'll only cause problems for yourself. Make yourself unassuming and try to walk up to the target casually or drive like a NPC would if they're in a car. Make sure you're using a car that is appropriate for the area. Driving up in an exotic car in the ghetto is a sure fire way to get caught by your target. Cameras are a great way of getting close to your target so you can hack them while they are on foot while keeping your person away from them.

You're given five minutes to do this so there isn't much of a rush. Once you hack them, you'll be given a minute to determine when and where you want to start the backdoor breach. The easiest way to fool them is to climb on top of a roof since they will most likely be preoccupied checking all of the NPC. I find that the L-Train is one of the best ways at fooling them but any random rooftop should usually do.

Now it just comes down to waiting it out and snickering at them through the cameras while they go crazy trying to look for you. If you can manage it, try to seek concealment of any kind as it will of course make you much harder to locate. If you don't manage to find an elevated spot you can always try to hide in a car by parking it in a parking spot or at the very edge of the search zone.


Some highlights from while I was streaming this so you can see how things can be.

EDIT: NeXuS23 pointed out a couple of other tricks that I'm sure will be useful. Ducking into a store and acting like a customer would be a decent way to avoid being detected. This is bound to make your opponent hate you but you can cause them trouble by getting the cops called to your location by using grenades or silenced weapons to scare civilians. Never use a motorcycle as it seems NPCs never use them (never seen them myself) so riding one will alert your target if they've been paying attention to that. NeXuS23 has more tips in the comments below that are a bit long to post here about countering someone who's hacking you that is worth checking out.
