Money is important, and today we’re going to provide some insight into how to make money fast in Watch Dogs 2. You need money to buy a large assortment of items, some with great benefits and others purely aesthetic. Whatever the case may be, you need to make money as quickly as possible. We’ve got some advice to make money quickly, as well as a late game exploit that really helps you rake in the dough in Watch Dogs 2.
If you played the original Watch Dogs you should be well aware of the fact that you can hack into almost anyone on the streets. More often than not, these people will give you money. Early in the game you won’t get a lot of dough. It’s rare to be able to hack anyone for even $100, let alone more. However, after you’ve been playing for a bit you can unlock the Improved Profiler upgrade under the Social Engineering section. Once you have this talent you will always get at least $400 from hacking pedestrians and sometimes up to as much as $1,000. If you spend some time hacking everyone around you, it can add up quickly.
Watch Dogs 2 has a lot in common with Grand Theft Auto. One big similarity is how often you’ll be taking cars off the street. Every time you hijack a new car, you raid the contents of the vehicle. Sometimes you’ll find money, which is added to your bank account automatically, but often times you’ll find valuable items. These items can vary but usually you can find a laptop or something similar. Take these items to the closest Pawn shop to trade them in for cash.
$18,000 Per Minute Glitch
Late in the game you get to the main operation, Eye for an Eye. As you play through the operation you will come to the mission, A Real Dog Fight. During the mission, take the freight elevator to the lower level and head over to the door where you’re supposed to hack the camera and listen to Pablo Cortes speak. Instead of completing the mission, hack Cortez from the camera to get $18,000 or more.
Once you have the money, access the menu screen and reload the last checkpoint. As soon as you acquire the money, it’s automatically saved, so you keep the money even after you load the last checkpoint. You can repeat this process over and over again as it only takes a minute or so to complete.
