Steps to complete: We'd recommend unlocking the Quadcopter and Machine Control Research nodes for this mission, which has a handful of steps.

Locate the three targets and hack them to get the information you need. One of them is on a roof in a restricted area so using the Quadcopter simplifies matters.

Rat Trap:
Hack the panel to get access to the camera, and use it to infect the servers.

Pest Control:
Using the Quadcopter, fly over the area and open the garage door. Take control of the forklift, pick up the explosive crate and drive it into the garage and detonate it.

Bottom Dollar

How to unlock: Scan the informant in Palo Alto, between Axle Boardshop and Auto Elite.

Steps to complete:

Customer Service:
Head to the marked ATM locations, hack them, and then use the keypads to either give or take money when a customer uses it. There are seven in total.
