For instance in online hacking, I am always the hacker or in ctOS Mobile Community I'm always the one racing through the city.

How do I play as the other person?

You don't actively choose to get invaded.

It happens when you're invaded by another player when playing normally.

  • So do I just play single player and it randomly happens then?

  • Yes. I usually see it happen when trying to start a quest and it tells me that I'm being invaded and have to find the invader first.

Try some of these things if you want to get hacked in Watch Dogs instead of being the hacker:

  • I've found it happens more when you are around ctOS towers and when you have a bounty from Blume.
  • It never happens during a mission that I can tell.
  • I've yet to have it happen in Multiplayer Free Roam, but that was what I was originally told.
  • Best thing you can do is just play and enjoy the times you get hacked if that is your sort of thing. It keeps it mysterious
