Watch Dogs 2 Game Guide

The unofficial guide to Watch Dogs 2 includes all the information needed to complete the game in 100%. The initial pages of the guide focus on hints and descriptions of new game elements, those not present in the first game or ones that were significantly changed. This includes things like the usage and applications of the Jumper and the Quadcopter, modified hacking of some elements of the environment, as well as new skill trees (pros, cons and usefulness of individual skills). The guide also includes chapters advising how to quickly earn money and how to spend it the best way possible, how to gain new followers or how to unlock achievements (features a full list of achievements, along with information on their conditions and additional commentary).

A large portion of the guide is dedicated to walkthroughs for all main and side missions. Walkthroughs of individual quests include detailed descriptions of subsequent mission sections, as well as suggestions on how to complete them with the least amount of effort or which method is the most efficient one (many missions allow the player to choose their preferred strategy). Missions that require the player to plan and follow a route to reach their destination were supplemented with numerous screenshots, marking key locations.

Another large section of the guide includes high-quality maps of San Francisco. On the maps we have marked the game’s numerous secrets, including things like key data, research points, new paint jobs, rare pieces of clothing or unique cars. Many of them have descriptions and screenshots, thanks to which finding them will even easier. The last pages of the guide are dedicated to controls and hardware requirements.

Watch Dogs 2 is a sequel to the popular sandbox action game released by Ubisoft. In the second part we are taken from Chicago to San Francisco, where we play as Marcus Holloway, a member of the local hacker group known as DedSec. The sequel is characterized by a lighter tone than it’s predecessor but the premise of the game remains mostly the same. Most of our time will be spent exploring the virtual setting and hacking various electronic devices we find there. The new game offers even more freedom, enabling the player to hack new devices and offering more advanced control of their operation.

Watch Dogs 2 Video Game

Watch Dogs 2

  • genre: Action

  • developer: Ubisoft
  • publisher: Ubisoft
  • platform: PC, PS4, XONE

Watch Dogs 2 is the successor to an open-world action game Watch Dogs (2014). In the original game, the player was given an opportunity to become a skilled hacker who controls the urban infrastructure and different communication devices, using a set of moden-day gadgets.

In contrast to the seriousness and gloomy atmosphere of the first installment, Watch Dogs 2 delivers the player with a more relaxed approach to the formula of a hacking-themed open-world game. The action is set in a completely new town, which is San Francisco this time. The player assumes the role of Marcus Holloway, though what is really important is that he is a member of Dedsec – a group gathering local hackers.

Generally, Watch Dogs 2 does not stray away from the gameplay formula of the original Watch Dogs. As a result, it is again an open-world, third-person action game which resembles the legendary Grand Theft Auto series in terms of the mechanics. However, the Watch Dogs series distinguishes itself by giving the player an opportunity to hack the surroundings with a very wide set of gadgets – Watch Dogs 2 definitely brings an extension to this aspect of gameplay. Marcus Holloway has a set of entirely new gadgets at his disposal, such as a flying drone, an RC car or a weapon created using a 3D printer. The creators were focused on giving more freedom of approach to the player, who can complete subsequent story missions in a variety of ways, depending on their preferences.

Contrary to the original game released over two years earlier, Watch Dogs 2 was created with modern-day PCs and consoles (eighth generation) in mind since the very beginning. This allowed for major improvements in terms of the visuals. As a result, the graphics have been significantly upgraded and the open world of San Francisco feels alive to a greater degree.

More About Watch Dogs 2

Watch Dogs 2 system requirements revealed, PC version delayed

Ubisoft shared some news on Watch Dogs 2 PC. Firstly, they revealed the technical details on this version, including the system requirements. Another thing is a slight delay of the game.

Watch Dogs 2 launch date accidentally revealed

IGN accidentally revealed the launch date of Watch Dogs 2 in an advertisement before its official announcement.

This chapter contains various advices that concern the most important elements of Watch Dogs 2. Those elements that haven’t been in the first game or that have been severely changed in this part have been additionally emphasized. Some of the elements (such as using the quadcopter), are discussed more thoroughly in other chapters, or in the walkthrough itself.

  • Exploration
  • Hacking
  • Sneaking and combat
  • Police / Gangs
  • Secrets
  • DedSec Hackerspace

Exploration

  • The new protagonist of Watch Dogs 2, Marcus Holloway, is capable of nearly effortless exploration. Still, reaching various locations can sometimes be rather difficult. One of the main difficulties is that the target is e.g. on a roof. If that’s the case, try to locate a lift, a crane, a forklift, or something like that. Hacking such machines will allow you to reach otherwise inaccessible places. Other common difficulty are restricted areas, marked red on the map. Make sure your actions are discrete and secrete, since being noticed by enemies will cause a great many additional problems – you’ll be attacked and reinforcements are likely to arrive on site.
  • There are many locations that you don’t have to reach personally. In order to retrieve a hidden object or for reconnaissance, you can use a jumper or a quadcopter. There are two more advantages to using the gadgets: first, if these machines are exposed, it won’t cause the whole neighborhood to rain down on you; second, if these gadgets are destroyed, it costs you nothing, since after a brief cooldown, you’ll be able to use them again. Attention – the jumper and quadcopter have a limited range of operations. Upgrading them is a good idea, since it will provide new abilities (detailed information about the gadgets can be found on the next page).
  • In Watch Dogs 2 you no longer have to reach CTOS towers in order to reveal collectibles or interesting locations in new districts. New activities are now revealed by the NetHack mode, which scans your surroundings for interesting elements after you turn it on. It’s range is also limited, so use it often, especially when you turn up in a new area. New activities can also be unlocked by acquiring new followers. That mechanic is discussed in detail later on.
  • All new operations (main, optional, and online) are added to the DeadSec app. There you can browse them and activate those that you find interesting. Many operations are divided into a couple of parts, but you don’t need to complete all of them in one sweep. If a subsequent part of an operation requires you to e.g. use a more advanced version of your gadget, you can easily come back after you’ve upgraded it. An important detail is that online missions are randomly generated and change every now and then. If you don’t want to do an operation (it could be too difficult etc.), you can wait until another one appears. Every mission provides a reward – a number of new followers (a couple to tens of thousands). Apart from that, some operations will yield additional awards (such as rare clothes).
  • Additional activities available are mainly races and Driver San Francisco quests. There are different types of races: using drones, dirt bikes, sailing boats, or go-karts. The amount of followers and cash that you acquire depends on the difficulty and your score. Driver San Francisco missions are minor taxi quests. Each of them has a set of objectives, such as transporting fragile cargo or providing some additional “emotions” for your passenger. The tips on these missions can be found in another chapter.
  • From the very beginning, fast-travel is available. It only allows you to travel to fixed locations (such as shops or hideouts), so you can’t travel directly to a collectible on a map, or anything like that. Still, it can be pretty convenient to use the fast travel option, especially if your mission objective is all the way across the city.

Hacking

  • One of the most important changes in hacking mechanics is that in case of certain objects, you are able to chose one of a couple hacking alternatives (hold the hacking button and then press the button of the action you want to perform). The basic options are these: activation/deactivation of the object, creating a sphere of activation around it and luring NPCs to it. The two latter actions are especially useful, since they allow you to set traps; for example, if you hack a fuse box, it’s possible to make it stun enemies in its vicinity. Attention – the range of available actions will be different for different objects. For example, after hacking a car, you can assume control over it (if you have the right skill), and by hacking a phone, you can steal data or draw the attention of its owner.
  • NetHack is a very important element of the game, that works on similar principles as the detective mode from the Arkham series, i.e. it scans the direct vicinity and provides and alternative view mode. You can use it at all times and for as long as you want, so try to employ it often. Activating it will highlight secrets and objects that can be hacked. Additionally, police and enemies are also highlighted in red.
  • Hacking requires a sort of power units called botnets. A less complicated action will use 1-2 botnets; a more difficult hack can consume as much as 6 or 8. Used bonnets replenish automatically, but it takes a lot of time. This can be tackled in two ways: download the botnets from certain NPCs phones, or purchase skills that increase the capacity of Marcus’ phone. Try to always have some botnets with you, so you can use them to your advantage if you get exposed, for example.
  • Remember that you won’t be able to breach every system from day one. In some cases, an access key or a closed circuit terminal may prove necessary. In both of these cases, use the NetHack mode to highlight red connections. Keep in mind that you can use a quadcopter to obtain an access key, and a jumper to breach a terminal. Network bypasses, or the mini games where you manipulate the flow of data in a network, have also been changed a bit. They are layered onto elements of the environment (e.g. walls), so it’s much easier to complete these mini games when watching from afar – you can use industrial cameras or a quadcopter.

Sneaking and combat

  • Marcus has a teaser from the very beginning of the game. It’s a useful tool, but reloading it takes ages (there’s a skill that allows shortening it) – it can basically be used to take down solitary enemies.
  • You can also deal quietly with enemies in hand-to-hand combat – you’ll have to rely on elements of the environment or on a special gadget that requires a specific skill. Regardless of which method you choose, remember that the enemy will eventually wake up, and they will instantly be on alert if they do – don’t linger around after knocking a couple of enemies cold. Do what you need and move on ASAP.
  • The protagonist can also carry two additional weapons. An assault rifle is a good choice. It will allow Marcus to fight on longer distances, and the rate of fire (which is the curse of the sniper rifle) will not be a problem here. As your second weapon of choices, you can use one of the shotguns at the beginning, and than switch over to a grenade launcher, which is perfect for dealing with stronger enemies, groups of foes, or blowing up cars.
  • New weapons can be taken from dead enemies obviously, but the best items will be created in your hideout. Top guns can cost 100,000 or more, so don’t be too quick to spend your money.
  • Some enemies (and robots) have the ability to call reinforcements. Try to stop them at all cost – the arrival of additional troops can render surviving impossible. The easiest way is to shoot the enemy before he manages to call his friends, but you can also try to hack the phone.
  • Robots are one of the unique types of enemies. They can call reinforcements and attack the player, so, at least at the beginning, it’s advisable to keep away from them. In the latter part of the game, you will look for an opportunity to sabotage them by hacking elements of the environment, using explosives or breaching their systems (a skill required).
  • Guard dogs can smell you from a pretty long distance and alarm the enemies to your presence. Try to neutralize them fast, for example by using the teaser. If that’s not possible, keep your distance (and make sure it’s as big as possible too).
  • Marksmen use sniper rifles and can be meet only in the most important locations. Avoid open areas in the sections guarded by them. Also try hacking and using gadgets to distract them and close in.
  • Executioners are extremely well-armored opponents, who appear exclusively in the most important locations. Eliminating them is usually very difficult, since they can endure continuous machine-gun fire, even aimed at their heads. To defeat them, use explosives, grenades, or exploding elements of the environment.
  • The jumper and quadcopter cannot interact with enemies by default, but that can be changed by certain skills (a chapter devoted to them can be found further in this guide). For example, the jumper can be equipped with a loudspeaker used to distract enemies, and the quadcopter can be upgraded to pick up items that can be dropped on enemies. Don’t be afraid to use those – a destroyed jumper or quadcopter will pretty soon spawn again.
  • Death in Watch Dogs 2 doesn’t bring any negative consequences. If you weren’t doing any mission when you died, you will return to the game world close to the place of your death. During missions, you will be spawned at the latest checkpoint.

Police / Gangs

  • The most important issue is that you are able to prevent the police being called. Should you commit a crime, one of the pedestrians may decide to call 911. If that happens, you need to react before the red triangle fills in – i.e. before the call is completed. Don’t kill the civilian – just hold them at gunpoint, take them down non-lethal, or (if they’re too far) hack their phone.
  • The police pursuits are pretty similar to those from the first Watch Dogs. There’s no point trying to fight off the cops from any vantage point – you will be surrounded and overwhelmed anyway. Instead, flee, preferably using a vehicle. At the beginning, you have access only to the most basic hacking tools, such as basic sabotage of traffic lights. Buy new environmental-hacking skills often. As concerns the chases themselves, first and foremost, you have to make sure you don’t crash too often. Also try to take sharp turns and enter narrow alleys often and look for secluded spots, in which you could lay low after losing the cops (if the chase involves a helicopter, make sure those places are covered with some sort of roof).
  • Apart form the police, in Watch Dogs 2 you also may run into some trouble with the FBI, the Umeni-Zulu security company, and a couple of organized gangs. Note, that most of the gangs are hostile towards each other, and you can notice them fighting sometimes (best not get involved). Further in the game, you will be able to purchase a skill allowing you to rope the police or the thugs to attack a chosen person. That may come in handy when you have trouble clearing a well-guarded location or if you need help in eliminating the executioner.

Secrets

  • In Watch Dogs 2 there are many collectibles, and there are different awards for finding them – it’s good to do that regularly. The easiest way of revealing them is using the NetHack – it will make the collectibles in your vicinity appear on the map. From the map level, you can mark them as your destination, allowing yourself to reach them much quicker.
  • You can reach the secrets yourself or use the jumper or quadcopter (only in case of the secrets that don’t have to be physically collected).
  • Key Data are among the most important secrets. They are required to learn some of the advanced skills. Each secret in this group is difficult to get (it can be on a roof of a skyscraper or in hostile gangs’ HQ).
  • Research points are also a very important category of the collectibles. Each secret of this category you find will grant you 1 additional research point, in turn allowing you to unlock new skills.
  • Money bags can be found very often – each contains from a couple to tens of thousands of dollars. Most of them can be reached quite easily.
  • ScoutX are unusual collectables. First, you need to download a ScoutX app to the smartphone – then you will be able to track locations popular among tourists visiting San Francisco. After reaching the given location, you can take a selfie – the award will be 8000 followers and some new emoticons. Attention – in some locations, the picture has to be taken at the right time of the day (for example when a street entertainer is getting ready for a show). If you arrive at the wrong time, wait a while or take a rest in a DeadSec Hackerspace and come back later.
  • Unique vehicles are not among the most important collectables. Often they’re only distinguishable by their appearance. They’re usually well guarded.
  • Paintjobs, elements of wardrobe, and vehicles aren’t very important – they introduce cosmetic changes only.
  • New music tracks are the only type of secrets, which you don’t have to personally look for; just install SongSeak on your smartphone and it will automatically find new songs and add them to the playlist.

DedSec Hackerspace

  • There’s a couple of hideouts reserved for hackers from DeadSec in SF. The first one of these you will visit a the beginning of the game, in one of the main operations – A walk in the park. Getting back to them in the latter part of the game is purely optional. Marcus is totally safe inside them, but he cannot enter while he’s being chased.
  • In the Hackerspaces, you can meet other hackers and get new missions, but there also are other interesting things there, such as 3D printers, which can be used to produce gadgets and munitions. You should try to accumulate enough money to be able to afford a quadcopter as soon as you can. Later, you will use it mostly to get better guns.
  • Using the sofa in the Hackerspace allows you to save the game and change the time of the day. Use it for example to get collectibles that are only available during day or night.
  • From less important activities available in the Hackerspaces, you can change your clothes, customize weapons, look for occasional collectibles, or listen to unique tracks.

The jumper and quadcopter are two entirely new gadgets in Watch Dogs 2. In this chapter, you will learn how to unlock them (the game allows that pretty early on), what are their uses, and what are the most useful upgrades.

  • The Jumper – unlocking
  • Jumper – application and upgrades
  • Quadcopter – unlocking
  • Quadcopter – application and upgrades

The Jumper – unlocking

You can’t miss the moment when the jumper is unlocked, because it happens during your first visit in the DeadSec Hackerspace (after finishing the main operation Walk in the Park, which is unlocked after finishing the prologue). One of the stages of that mission involves testing a 3D printer – use it to make a jumper (it will be free).

From that moment on, you can use the left button on the controller’s d-pad (or a corresponding button on your keyboard) in order to take control over the jumper. Marcus will have only one jumper, but if it gets destroyed, it will respawn shortly.

Jumper – application and upgrades

The main application of the jumper is reaching places that Marcus is unable to reach himself, or that would be very cumbersome to reach otherwise. The jumper can for example enter vent shafts or small holes in walls. It also can (as the name indicates) jump onto high ledges and platforms, but this ability becomes more important after you purchase one of the jumpers’ upgrades.

Using the jumper is often mandatory if you want to obtain a well-hidden secret, or if you have to get to a seemingly inaccessible closed-circuit terminal (the jumper can hack those as well). It can also be used for reconnaissance (to a limited degree), but the chances of being exposed are much higher than in case of the quadcopter.

The jumper can be upgraded by purchasing skills related to it. The Enhanced Spring skill is definitely the most useful one, as it allows the jumper to bounce pretty high, making it possible to reach previously inaccessible ledges and roofs. You should also purchase the Taunt skill rather soon, as it allows you to distract enemies with the jumper. You can lure them to a place where you’ll be able to quietly deal with enemies, or just clear the path to your objective. When you’re character will be sufficiently experienced, you should also try the Remote Gadgets skill. It provides some “offensive abilities” for the jumper – it will be able to carry explosives and stun charges, which will allow you to kill or stun chosen enemies.

Quadcopter – unlocking

The quadcopter can also be unlocked at the game’s beginning, however it doesn’t happen automatically as in case of the jumper. The first opportunity to obtain the quadcopter appears when you visit the DeadSec Hackerspace during the Walk in the Park operation. You have to enter the hideout and interact with the 3D printer. Producing a quadcopter will cost 67,500 dollars – if you don’t have enough dough, try to collect it ASAP – for example by gathering nearby Money Bags, or by winning a couple of races. Don’t delay this purchase – the quadcopter is very useful and some missions will become really hard without it.

If you own a quadcopter, press the right button on your controller’s d-pad (or a corresponding button on your keyboard) to seize control over the quadcopter. Marcus will have only one quadcopter, but if it gets destroyed, it will respawn shortly.

Quadcopter – application and upgrades

The main application of the quadcopter is reconnaissance. Use this ability every time you close in on a hostile area or an open location, in which an operation will play out – it will allow you to plan your actions, see where the enemies are, and locate objects that can be hacked. You’re not limited to observation itself though, because you can hack stuff from the quadcopter just as when you control Marcus. Regardless of the approach you decide to take, don’t get too close to enemies or the drone will be exposed and shot down.

In some locations the quadcopter can also be used to find access keys that Marcus cannot reach himself, or to solve Network Bypass-based mini games. The drone can’t lift any items, unfortunately, so you’ll have to reach them on foot or with the jumper.

The quadcopter can be upgraded by purchasing skills related to it. The first upgrade will be the Proximity Scanner, which facilitates tagging characters during reconnaissance. An interesting, albeit expensive upgrade is the Remote Gadgets upgrade. It allows to mount explosives and stun charges onto the quadcopter, providing some offensive abilities to the quadcopter. If you own that skill, you can drop “surprises” while not risking direct confrontation. If you use the quadcopter often, you can also buy the Speed Boost skill, which will make it move faster.

In Watch Dogs 2 you can use the Research app, which allows Marcus to unlock new skills. The game offers tens of different skills – below, you’ll find a list of those most useful. You should get them as soon as you’ll be able to, because reaching hidden collectibles and finishing missions will be much easier with them.

  • Requirements for obtaining new skills
  • Which skill should be bought first?
  • Which skills can I consider alternatively?

Requirements for obtaining new skills

  • To get new skills, you will need research points. Basic skills cost around 2 points – the most advanced can require as much as 8.
  • The research points are awarded to Marcus each time he gets enough followers to level up. Apart from that, look for RPs around the whole city. On the map, they are marked with a black skull – collecting one secret provides one research point. A page containing the localization of all of them can be found further on in the guide.
  • More advanced skills may require unlocking some more basic skills in the development tree. Furthermore, it’s also possible that you’ll have to obtain Key Data connected to a given skill.
  • The Key Data points are indicated on the map with green skulls. Obtaining them is usually troublesome – the details are discussed in a chapter devoted to Key Data.

Which skill should be bought first?

Auto-Takedown (2 research points) – This skill allows hacking gates and pipelines. You should definitely get this one, since these actions can make all the difference during a cop chase. Remember to press the displayed button quickly, when the opportunity for a perfect hack occurs.

Vehicle Directional Hack (2 research points) – Another very useful skill that allows you to take control over vehicles in your vicinity. After hacking the given car, you will be able to steer it. You can use that in many different ways: run over enemies, distract them, stop a car that’s fleeing, or crush into cops that are chasing you. Using the “autopilot” requires some practice, but as soon as you learn the basics, you’ll want to use this skill very often.

Create Distraction (2 research points) – It’s an inexpensive skill, which has many practical applications. It can be first and foremost used to prevent civilians from calling the police, or gangsters from calling reinforcements. It can also be used to disorientate enemies in order to attack them from behind cover or just bypass.

Electro Shock Device (2 research points) – This skill unlocks a new gadget, which is capable of stunning more than one enemy at once. Marcus has a limited number of these devices, but they do replenish automatically after some time.

Environmental RC (2 research points) – One of the most useful skills, that should be unlocked as early as possible. It allows to remotely control forklifts, cranes and lifts. This skill is invaluable in situations when you have to reach secrets that are inaccessible, but it can also help to provide an alternative path during missions.

Botnet Upgrade (2-6 research points) – All the skills from the Botnet branch have the same effect, i.e. they permanently increase the number of available botnets. Try to but the basic version of this skill as early as you can – it will add four botnets. Buying more upgrades should be considered later on, especially since they cost more Research Points, and raise the number “only” by 2.

Which skills can I consider alternatively?

Gang Attack or APB: Suspect Located (4 research points) – These are most useful if you want to act secretly. You can send members of a hostile gang or the police officers after the person you chose. If you’re lucky, that person will be killed. Worst case scenario is that you just introduce some chaos into enemy ranks, which you can use to slip by unnoticed. In the latter part of the game, consider buying more expensive versions of these skills – Gang War and APB: Wanted Criminal. They require Key Data in addition to money, but they can dramatically increase your chances of success.

Engine Override (4 research points, Key Data – can be obtained during one of the first main missions) – This skill adds some power to any car you drive. Faster car can run from police more easily, and can win races with less effort. Remember two things, though: one – use the override on straight road ONLY; and two – the override gradually depletes your botnets, so you might want to have a lot of them available before getting into the car.

Robot Exploit (4 research points) – When infiltrating restricted areas, you can hack robots that are there. After assuming control over a robot, you can use it for distraction, for example.

Chopper Retreat Exploit (6 research points, key data) – Using this skill forces the police helicopter chasing Marcus to break the pursuit and retreat. It’s extremely useful during “higher-level” chases, during which loosing the chopper is the most difficult thing.

Steady Aim (4 research points) – This skill allows to increase the range of the teaser gun. Consider buying this if you like to use that gadget. Increased range will be especially useful to safely eliminate guard dogs, which, at short distance, are able to smell Marcus and alarm enemies to his presence.

Sleight of Hand (2 research points) – This skill decreases the reload time for guns and the teaser. The default time of reload for the teaser gun is pretty problematic when you need to tease a couple of enemies during a short time.

System Crash Upgrade: Blackout (8 research points, key data) – This is a very expensive skill. Not only that; in order to be able to obtain it, you will first need to have Massive System Crash. Still, it’s advisable to get the Blackout upgrade despite these inconveniences – this skill allows you to act in secrecy or getting out of enemies’ sight incase of being exposed (apart from paralyzing the city infrastructure, any sources of light in the vicinity are also neutralized). This skill only works for 30 seconds, but that’s more than enough to reach the chosen location.

Enhanced Spring (6 research points, key data) – This skill allows the jumper to bounce higher, which is a welcomed enhancement. An upgraded jumper can easily reach hidden collectibles or devices that allow to breach a system. Not having this skill will make reaching these places much harder, or even impossible.

Explosive Device (4 research points) – This skill unlocks the ability to use explosives. After planting the device, you can detonate it at any time, which is useful if you’ve been exposed and need to eliminate a group of enemies. Marcus has a limited amount of explosives at his disposal, but they replenish automatically.

Security System Shutdown (6 research points, key data) – As the name suggests, this skill allows you to turn off different security systems – they don’t appear until later in the game. This skill allows to minimize the risk of being exposed by different local security systems.

Remote Gadgets (8 research points, key data) – This skill allows you to equip the jumper and the quadcopter with explosives and stun charges. This makes those previously harmless gadgets able to eliminate enemies, in addition to hacking and scouting. It’s expensive, but don’t forget about this one when you’ve reached the appropriately high level and gather enough research points.

Taunt (4 research points) – A very useful upgrade of the jumper. After obtaining it, you’ll be able to equip the jumper with a loudspeaker that can distract enemies. You can use it to lure them out of their posts to eliminate them safely, or just bypass them.

Watch Dogs 2 is game with average minimum specs, requiring Intel Core i5 CPU, 6Gb of RAM and a GeForce GTX 660 GPU or comparable. Running the game on highest details at 1080p or higher requires a much more powerful rig.

The following guide has been prepared based on the PlayStation 4 version of the game. Running on a standard PS4, Watch Dogs 2 was running at stable 30 fps for most of the time. Some slowdowns took place only during intense firefight or when moving at high speeds. Fast driving occasionally led to issues with loading of some of the textures in the environment, but nothing that would significantly spoil the gameplay experience.
