Mission: The Defalt Condition

Objective: Enter the Ambrose Theater discreetly.

Objective: Profile guests to get to Defalt.

Objective: Hack Defalt's server. 

Walk up to the theater and hack the bouncer's phone, then move inside as he's distracted. Head to the dance floor and start profiling every person. You need to hack several people until you can move on to the next objective. Once you've cleared the objective, head up the stairs at the far end, then turn around and look up and to the right to see a camera.

Access the camera, then move it up and to the right to find a second camera. Move it up and to the left to find a third camera. Hack into it and move it up and slightly to the right to find the hacking point to get into Defalt's server. Move the camera up to access the hacking point that leads to another hotspot mini-game. 

Start all the way at the bottom in the lower left corner. Turn this point three times, then follow the line diagonally up and to the right to the next point. Turn this once, then move to the right and turn the next point once. Move to the right again and turn the next point one time as well, then move to the upper left point in the "S" shape and turn it once. Move to the right one point, unlock it, then turn it twice (three clicks in total). 

Move to the center formation of points and turn the top point once, then unlock the right point and turn it once (two clicks total), unlock the bottom point and turn it three times (four clicks total), then back to the top point for three turns, then the left point to unlock it and turn it twice (three total clicks). Go back to the top for three more turns, then the right point for one turn, and finally the bottom point for one turn. This unlocks the final point in the middle, which advances you to the next hotspot puzzle. 

For the second hotspot, on the top half of the puzzle, start on the lower left point (not the timed point). Turn this two times, then move to the point diagonally up and to the right and turn it three times. Follow the line up and to the left and turn this point once, then move down one point, unlock it, then turn it twice (three clicks in total). Move back up one point and turn it three more times, then move down two points (to the one you started at) and turn it three times. 

Follow the line to the left and up to the next point, and turn it three times. Follow the line up and to the left again and unlock this point, then turn it once (two clicks in total), then go up and to the right and unlock this point and turn it three times (four clicks in total). Go all the way down to the bottom row in the lower half of the puzzle and turn the point in the middle one time. Move back to the upper half and unlock the point in the middle at the bottom, then turn it once (two total clicks). 

Move back to the lower half of the puzzle and turn the lower right point three times. Go back to the upper half and unlock the point in the lower right corner, then turn it once (two clicks in total). Move to the point diagonally up and to the right and turn it once, then follow the line diagonally left and up, and turn this point three times. Move up and to the right and unlock this point, then turn it once (two clicks in total). Finally, move to the top row and unlock the point on the right, then turn it once to unlock the final point to the left and gain access to the camera. Access the camera straight ahead to watch a quick cut-scene. 

Objective: Chase Defalt

Objective: Fighter your way across the rooftop. 

Head up the stairs as you chase Defalt. You need to climb over several boxes and up a couple ladders until you finally reach the rooftop. Don't worry about the small explosions around you as you make your way up. They don't hurt you enough to be a problem.

When you reach the roof, quickly take cover as you will be under fire. Take out all of the men on the rooftop, as well as the snipers on the roof of the adjacent buildings (one to the right and one straight ahead). Once they're down, make your way across the roof and down the stairs to the waypoint. 

Objective: Chase Defalt and keep him in range.

Objective: Download the data.

Objective: Take down Defalt.

Drop down to the street and quickly jump in a car. You need to chase Defalt and stay close to him for as long as possible. If you get too far away the download stops until you get closer again. Defalt uses environmental hacks to slow you down, and will drive through parking garages and sideways in an effort to lose you. Just remember, you're not trying to take him down. All you have to do is stay relatively close. If you get right on his tail, don't worry about anything other than staying close, even if it means slowing down more than usual when you take a corner. Once the download is complete, it's time to finish off Defalt. Take him out to finish the mission.
