Mission: Mad Mile ctOS Control Center

Objective: Locate a guard with the access code.

Objective: Download access code. 

When you arrive at the ctOS Control Center, head over to the northeast side of the area to find a hacking point (next to a pizzeria) that opens a gate into the area. Head through the gate and immediately take cover. The first guard on the left is the one who needs to be hacked for the code. He moves around a little bit, so if you don't see him immediately, just wait behind cover until he walks over. 

Objective: Hack the ctOS server.

Objective: Leave the area.

Leave the immediate area and head over to the south side. Stick close to the building as you make your way around or you'll leave the mission area and have to start over from the last save point. To the left of the south side gate is a blue lift. Use the lift to reach the roof above, then access the cameras on each guard and around the area to get the location and viewpoint of each guard. 

When the coast is clear, drop down to the lower level and wait behind cover until it's clear to move over to the waypoint. You will have to wait a little bit (as much as a minute), but the guards will all walk away or turn the other direction with the exception of the guard closest to the waypoint. Luckily that guard won't see you coming if you stick close to the wall and don't run. 

Make your way to the waypoint when the coast is clear and hide nearby while you access the hacking point and begin the mini-game. Start with the timed point in the middle. Turn it one time, then move to the lower left point, unlock it, then turn it one time as well (two clicks in total). Unlock the point at the very bottom, then turn it three times (four total clicks), then go back to the timed point and turn it one more time.

Unlock the far right point, then turn it once (two clicks in total), then unlock the point in the upper left corner and turn it once as well (two clicks in total). Finally, go back to the far right point and turn it two more times to unlock the point at the very top. Click the final point to access the camera. Access the camera on the far end of the room, then access the unlock point dead ahead. 

Now it's time to leave the area. Directly opposite the hacking point (in the same small area you're hiding in), is an option to attract the closest guard. Hide between the attract point and the hacking point and attract the guard. When he rounds the corner to investigate, use a takedown. With that guard out of the way, you can head out to the left and should not have a hard time avoiding the handful of guards between you and the exit. Once you clear the white circle (on the mini-map) the mission is complete.
