|Jewelry Store Job Tips:|
1.Watch for the Hotdog cops. Outside of the store there might be a squad car with 2 cops stopping near a hotdog stand on the furthest right side of the map.
2.You can have anywhere between 1-2 security guards patrolling the outside and you might have 1 in the front room.
3.Alleyways on the left and right of the jewelry store (as you look at it). Recommend going through the right alleyway and look into the first set of windows to see if you have a safe to deal with or not.
4.If stealthing leave 2 people outside to zip tie civilians and kill 1-2 if you have no zip ties. A couple thousand penalty is negligible to a successful and quick payout.
5.Turret goes well in the alleyways behind the dumpsters. Trip mines are also very helpful in the alleyways or in the back room where the safe spawns. Limits enemy flanking.
6.Keep 1-2 of the crew in the main room to keep a strong presence. The cops will push in and take ground if you don't fight for it and making it more difficult to run bags.
7.Depending on the van spawn location move the bags either to the long set of counters (located in the middle of the room) in the main room or behind the door in the left alleyway (as you view the street from inside the jewelry store). Daisy chain outside of assaults and run bags during if you need to.
8.Be careful of getting caught in the small room that connects the alleyway with the main street. It might appear to be a 'decent' place to hold out but it only has 2 ways in/out and the cops have the majority of map control.
9.Again a buddy system is great. Have 2 grab the loose jewelry while the other 2 watch for cops/civilians and bag up the larger jewelry.
Infinite experience and money and all weapons and mods:
Load the "Rats" mission from the Crime.net map. The "Rats" mission will become available once you reach Level 13. Play through the mission until you reach the "Bus Stop" side mission. The "Bus Stop" side mission requires you to kill all of Mendoza's men on the bus. It can be completed in 37 seconds. Kill all the men on the bus, then run back to the helicopter. The mission will end, and you will be rewarded with experience and money. When it says "Payday",
go to the next screen to display three cards. Pick one of the cards to get a random item. When the item is shown, go to the menu screen, then select the "Restart Game" option. This will reload the "Bus Stop" side mission, but you will still keep the experience, money, and item you earned. You can keep farming experience, money, weapons, and mods by completing the "Bus Stop" side mission as many times as desired. Once you reach Level 50, go back to the
Crime.net map, and look for the "Rats" mission with three yellow stars. Select the mission with the yellow stars, then keep completing the "Bus Stop" side mission until you reach Level 100.
Easy "Fish A.I." achievement:
Once you start the second part of the Watchdogs mission (Day 2), the bags you previously robbed will be on the ground in front of you. Simply take one of the bags, and throw it into the water. You can throw it into the water at any point of the harbor to get the "Fish A.I." achievement.
Doctor Fantastic achievement:
Reach Level 30 to unlock the Big Oil job on your map. Complete Day 2 stealthily to give yourself plenty of time to look for all the clues in the lab, which will help you idenfity the correct engine. Note that the correct engine and clues change each time you replay the mission:
1. In the top right corner is a computer screen with a PSI value taht will indicate whether the engine has more than 5812 PSI or less than 5812 PSI. 5812 PSI are equal to 400 bars. There is a small white watch at each of the engines, allowing you to see how many bars the engine has.
2. On one of the tables (random location) is a small clipboard with some black text written on it indicating how many cables the correct engine has. It will either say 1H (1 cable), 2H (2 cables) or 3H (3 cables). These are the cables going from the top of the large blue bottle to the engine itself.
3. There is another clipboard with a green checkmark indicating whether the engine uses Nitrogen, Deterium, or Helium. View the big white board in the entry area of the lab to see which substance has which bottle color. You can then look for the small, colored bottles inside the engines (blue,
orange, or green).
Use those clues to narrow down the possibilities. Once you believe to have identified the correct engine, grab it and bring it back to the airstrip. Activate the red flai, and wait for the helicopter. If you did this stealthily, the alarm will then go off automatically. Toss the bag with the engine
into the helicopter and survive for another three minutes until you hear back about the test results. If the tests confirm that you picked the right engine, you will get the "Doctor Fantastic" achievement.
Easy "Triple Kill" achievement:
Play Rats Day 3, when you have to kill the Mendozas in the bus. At the start of the day, get on top of the car in the front of the bus. Use a sniper rifle (Thanatos .50 caliber recommended) to kill the Mendozas, who are clustered together.
Renaming guns or masks:
Enter your inventory and find a gun or mask to rename. Select the gun's or mask's name above its stats, then rename it.
