Watch Dogs: Someone's Knocking - hotspot puzzle, trace hacker

This is one hell of a hotspot hacking challenge to start Act 4. Let us help you get through it as painlessly as possible.

Once the cutscene here has played out you need to play the mini-game three times. If that's not bad enough, your screen will interrupted randomly and that may cause you to miss an input, so be patient and careful in your approach.

Once you're on to the second and third hotspots some points will be on a timer randomly so that's another thing to consider, as is the third hotspot where points will turn on their own forcing you to correct them. So, deep breath, here we go…

Starting in the left corner turn the point three times and move to the lower right and turn twice. Turn the upper right corner point once. Turn the point above and slightly to the left once and move left and slightly down to turn the point once. Now turn the far right point once, the one up and to the right once and the point on the right and slightly down three times. This will unlock the final point at the top in the middle.

On the second hotspot start in the middle near the bottom (but not the bottom point) and turn it twice. Go right one point and turn twice, move up one point and turn it twice. Turn the point to the right once, ignore the next point up, and turn the point to the right of that once. Move left along the line and turn the next point once, and left one point again and to turn it twice.

Now move to the lower left point and turn it twice, following the line to turn the next point twice as well. Move left one point and turn it once, then skip the point up and to the right. Turn the point on the left of that once, then follow the line to the right and turn that point once. This unlocks the point in the middle at the top, which sends you to the third and final hotspot. Phew.

Move quickly here, as the timer on these points are short. Pause between points if that helps. Start at the point near the bottom again (not the point at the very bottom) turning it once. Move to the right and turn that point twice, then move up along the line and turn the next point twice. Move right to the next point and turn it once, then ignore the point to the left, and move right, into the corner and turn that point once. Move up and to the left to turn that point once as well.

Move left one point and turn it twice, then move down to the point left of the starting point and turn it twice. Move up along the line and turn the next point twice, then up and to the left and turn the next point once. Ignore the point to the right, then follow the line up and to the left and turn the next point once. Follow the line to the right and turn the adjacent point once, then turn the point to the right once to unlock the final point to the right.
