Watch Dogs ctOS Breach Contracts Locations Guide

Watch Dogs ctOS Breach Contracts count as collectibles in the video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal, and to unlock the System Mangler achievement/trophy you need to complete all of them.

In Watch Dogs, a ctOS Breach Contract is a timed mission, during which you have to hack four ctOS boxes.

Similar to other collectibles, such as the Privacy Invasions, the Breach Contracts appear on your map only after you unlock the ctOS Towers in a district.

Aside from the achievement/trophy you will unlock, by completing a Breach Contract in the video-game, you will also earn 250 XP and you will unlock a series of Audio Logs.

When attempting a Breach Contract mission, you have to consider that some of the ctOS boxes are located in areas that are hard to reach; therefore, you have to move as fast as possible, because the clock is ticking. If you fail to unlock all ctOS boxes within the allotted time, you will fail the mission.

Since some of the ctOS Breach Contracts can be very challenging, the following guide was created to help you finish all missions and get the corresponding achievement/trophy.

The guide includes tips and hints for all ctOS Breach Contracts in Watch Dogs.

There are 16 ctOS Breach Contracts in the game, and to complete them you have to visit the following districts: Parker Square (4 ctOS Breach Contracts), The Loop (3 ctOS Breach Contracts), Mad Mile (3 ctOS Breach Contracts), The Wards (1 ctOS Breach Contract), Brandon Docks (5 ctOS Breach Contracts).

The maps below mark the locations of all ctOS Breach Contracts in Watch Dogs, divided in districts, while the text guide follow the same order.

Parker Square District ctOS Breach Contracts Walkthrough

In Parker Square, four ctOS Breach Contracts can be completed, after you unlock the ctOS Towers.

Three of them are in the southern area, as you can see on the map below, and one in the northern area.

Parker Square District ctOS Breach Contract 1

In the first ctOS Breach Contract you will notice that the boxes are located around an alley. Two of them can be hacked using the cameras on the rooftops. The third box is located behind a fence and a wooden grate. Shoot the grate to hack the box, but be careful because you might alert the cops.

For the fourth box, use the same strategy, but try to move as fast as possible. If you complete the breach you will receive Audio File: Angela Balik 01.

Parker Square District ctOS Breach Contract 2

After you reach the roof and start the second Breach Contract on the map below, focus on hacking the box close to your location. You can reach it if you go around the small fence near the building and climb on the roof.

The remaining three boxes are near the docks. For one of them you have to vault and get close to the water. For the third you must climb the roof of the building using the structure in the backyard; while for the final box, you have to shoot the red container.

Once you hack all of them you will unlock Audio File: Angela Balik 02.

Parker Square District ctOS Breach Contract 3

The third contract is more accessible, since you can get close to the first two boxes. For the third and fourth, you have to use cameras in order to hack them.

One camera can be found across the alley, and for the final box you have to use the camera across the street, on the white building. Audio File: Angela Balik 03 becomes available once you finish the third breach in Parker Square.

Parker Square District ctOS Breach Contract 4

The fourth breach contract is probably the easiest, because it takes place near a lake and all ctOS boxes can be reached while on the ground.

Move from one box to another, following the alley around the lake, and unlock them while running. After you hack the fourth box you will get Audio File: Angela Balik 04.

Hack the camera in the corner of the building and then the ctOS box. Return to Aiden and move towards the next box.

Brandon Docks District ctOS Breach Contract 5

The final ctOS Breach Contract in Brandon Docks is triggered by hacking the box behind a small building, close to the river. The moment you start the mission, on top of the same building is a camera. Hack it, and then hack the camera near the lift, across the yard.

Turn it around and hack the first box. Return to Aiden, and use the said lift to go up and hack the ctOS box near the large glowing sign. For the remaining two ctOS boxes you have to use the cameras on top of the main building in the area. Switch between them and hack both boxes to unlock Audio File: Lucky Quinn 04.

For the third box, retrace your steps all the way to the location where you triggered the mission, and remain on the roofs.
