Once Jordi calls you, quickly leave the prison before the police arrive at the entrance. Once done, go to the right, run downstairs, and enter the car. Drive out of the parking garage and head to the nearby train station to hack a train. If a train is not available, run on the rails until find one, but avoid the helicopter. Having the Helicopter hack will help, as it will continue to follow you even after you are riding the train before eventually giving up the chase.
Built up enough wanted level until police arrive, then go into a building or onto a rooftop where you have good cover. Take out the police reinforcements until your wanted level is maxed out (Level 5), then get into a vehicle and drive to a location where the cops cannot follow you. One such spot is in the very north of "The Loop" district, below the most northern street is a tunnel. At the western end of the tunnel is a room behind a gate. Go into this area, close the gate, and wait until the police go away. Helicopters cannot see you in this area and the cops are unable to open the door.
To get a three star rank the two rooks and a king you have to make four moves without getting checkmated. To do so, move your king up and to the left. Your opponent will be forced to waste a turn moving a rook to avoid being captured, giving you an advantage
Unlock every ctOS Tower (13 total) to reveal all collectible locations on your map and unlock the "Clear Signals" achievement. ctOS systems are marked on your map from the start and must be hacked to make towers available. Hacking all of them is required to complete the main story, but they can also be hacked in free roam mode. Towers are always on rooftops, thus requiring climbing/hacking.
The high stakes poker game in the north part of The Loop has a big buy in but you can make plenty of cash. While you're not dealing, hack into the camera on the left side of the room and use it to check how stressed the other players are, including what cards are being dealt and held. You can then play your cards using those advantages. Note: Clearing the table of three opponents in a single match up is required to achieve a 100% ranking.
The SongSneak app allows you to add the following songs to your Media app playlist.

The way the game's graphics engine renders items offer an easy way to win at the shell game (where you have to watch a ball being moved around between three cups and guess where it is). Simply turn up the graphics settings in the options all the way to max, then play a shell game and pause after the ball has been moved and you are left to select a cup. When you pause the game, you will see the ball has been rendered underneath one of the cups. You can also turn the brightness up on your TV/monitor to see it easier. Just pick this cup to reveal the ball underneath. This works on all difficulty levels of the shell game.
After exiting the hideout near the river and train tracks, turnh around and run to the highway. Take out the civilians in their cars to increase your wanted level as high as you can to to ean more experience. Note that the cops will not be called as long as the civilians stay in their cars. Turn around and head down the freeway until you get to the train tracks below. Continue killing the civilians in their vehicles until the wanted level is full, then head to the L-Train Station. Jump over the fence and steal any vehicle, then intentionally get caught by the yellow scan to send the maximum number of cops after you. Go through the fence, drive down the tunnel, stop on the left side of the tracks, and wait inside your vehicle until the train appears. Start driving backwards so the train can enter the tunnel. The train will not hit your vehicle. Leave the vehicle and enter the train. When the white scan ends, you will earn 300 XP for "Police Evasion". Run to the end of the tunnel while you are in the train. Once the white scan ends, wait for the helicopter to leave your area, then shoot the ground to cause the white scan to appear again, giving the cops another 50 seconds to find you. Since you are in a spot where the police cannot find you, just wait the 50 seconds to be rewarded with another 300 XP. Repeat this process as many times as you'd like. Note: Make sure you return to your hideout and sleep to save your progress from time to time while doing this.
There is a pedestrian named "Galtero Blanco", which is "Walter White" in Spanish. When profiled, his occupation is listed as "Laundry Manager", a reference to Walter White using his work at a laundry service as a cover for his meth operation. Additionally, Galtero Blanco apparently has cancer.
The police offer an easy way to kill three enemies with a single IED. After shooting people until cops arrive, try to hit two police cars with one IED. Try to trigger the IED before the cops leave their cars. There are always two officers in each car. The IED can be purchased at Tobias's Shop for $300, which is located in the south-western corner of "The Loop" district and unlocks automatically during the main story. You can also craft the IED in your weapon wheel after unlocking the respective crafting skill, which can be found during a few missions or by obtaining it from weapon trade investigations. If you fail to get the achievement, reload the last autosave from the pause menu to get your IEDs back and give it another shot.
This achievement requires you to escape a level 5 police scan. First, build up the necessary wanted level while making sure nobody calls the police before you reach the 5th wanted level. Civilians that are about to call the cops will have a red triangle above their head, so kill them quickly. The best way to attempt this is in an open and crowded area so you can easily spot callers. Once the wanted level reached LEvel 5, allow someone to call the cops. You will then see yellow circles on the map, which are the ctOS scans. To escape the scan, drive to a distant location. Place a marker at the other end of the map and use a very fast vehicle to drive to the location. You should also apply the "Jam Coms" device. It will stop the ctOS scan for a short moment, allowing you some extra time to get away.
When being chased by cops at Level 5, go to the closest L-Line train platform and jump into one of the trains. If one isn't near, locate a tall parking garage and drive to one of its top floors, but not the open roof level. Stay below a roof and hide in your car until the police have lost sight of you. Stay hidden there until the police give up.
To avoid a road chase, look at Angelo Tucci's route on the map and wait for him at one of the intersections. Hack the traffic lights to stop the convoy (use a blackout if needed) and wait behind a bus stop or another obstacle so that civilians will not notice your weapon. When Tucci comes into your view, Focus and kill him. Note: You will have to escape with a car very fast.
Finding all 16 QR Codes unlocks the QR Code investigation mission, which unlocks the Tommy Gun weapon and "Read-only" achievement when completed. Unlocking all ctOS Towers is required to reveal the locations of the QR Codes on your map. The displayed locations can be confusing since you must find one specific surveillance camera and look at the QR Code from a certain angle. The correct camera may be far away or can only be activated from an elevated position. All codes are saved automatically once you find them. None of them are missable, and you can still get them in free roam mode after completing the story. Note: the QR Codes are required for the "They Call Him The Vigilante" achievement.
To hack the ctOS without entering the building, find the access terminal is inside the middle of the building. It is visible from a laptop camera if you remove some barrels that are in the way by exploding an electric device on the side of the building.
During the Campaign Mission "Wrench in the Works", Aisha Tyler can be seen talking to another NPC. Aisha is a well-known voice actress that has worked on many films, tv shows, and games, including Halo: Reach and Gears of War 3. She also appears in a hotel room or lounge talking on the phone. There is a City Hotspot in the City Hall building in the Loop district, and near it an unmarked 'intrude' console which you can hack. Do so to watch Aisha on the phone talking about farts and being followed.
For this achievement you must kill four enemies within a single instance of Focus. To do so, first obtain the "Focus" skill from the Combat skill tree and respective upgrades as they will make this much easier. Cops are easy targets to get this achievement. Shoot civilians until the police send three cars, with two officers in each car. Aim at their windshield as they drive towards you, then activate Focus and kill them as fast as possible to unlock the "Magic Smoke" achievement. If you fail to get the achievement, reload the last autosave from the pause menu and give it another shot.
The cameras near the entrance and inside the gang hideouts are useful for formulating a strategy. Tag the gang members to know their strength and locations, and use Jammers to prevent civilians from calling the police before starting any action. Also, make sure that you've found and profiled the gang leader before starting. You can also shoot out the tires of nearby cars to prevent the target from escaping. When ready, lure anyone guarding the entrance away and take them out quietly. A silenced weapon is recommended. Hide the body, then repeat for any other entrance guards. Hack available items and use explosions to create a distraction or kill gang members. You can then stealthily take out gang members that are distracted with the explosion. After enough gang members have been dispatched, the gang leader will attempt to flee. Carefully knock him out while killing any troublesome survivors.
