    To get this you just have to hack every type of machine.

    These are:
    Cameras
    Security Bots
    Turrets
    Locks
    Health Stations
    El Ammo Bandito Vending Machines
    Circus of Value Vending Machines

    This is obtainable early on because all of these feature prominently from near the beginning of the game.

    Simply hack one of every type of machine.

    You have to hack:

    * Circus of Value
    * Door Locks
    * El Ammo Bandito
    * First Aid stations
    * Safes
    * Security Bots
    * Security Cameras
    * Security Turrets

    When you hack the last one the achievement will unlock.

    You can either approach the machine and hack it or use the hack tool - the latter will count towards the 'Master Hacker' achievement but be aware you might run out of (sometimes much needed) hack tool ammo.

    What you need to do is hack one (or more) of each of these machines:

    Locks
    Cameras
    Turrets
    Security Bots
    Health Stations
    El Ammo Bandito Vending Machines
    Circus of Value Vending Machines

    Use the hacking tool gun for the Turrets and Cameras. You will need to for the cameras but for the turrets it is simply easier as they will generally attack you once you get near to them.
