Ubisoft's highly anticipated "Watch Dogs 2" has finally launched, much to the delight of video gamers and tech savants alike. The open-world adventure game about hackers trying to make it big in crime-fighting and social justice showed great improvement from its predecessor, as it introduced more powers, choices and better story arcs and dialogues.

But the biggest concern for "Watch Dogs 2" players, of course, is how to win in the game. And one of the main things Marcus "Retr0" Holloway should do to hack it into Dedsec is earning fast money. But how? Here's the beginner's guide to winning "Watch Dogs 2": tips and tricks, secrets, hacks, strategies, and more.

Earning fast money

One of the main things in "Watch Dogs 2" is making money, quick. This is because the first thing Marcus Holloway would need is a Quadcopter, a drone with camera and hacking abilities which would make several hacking activities easier. Bad news: this costs $65,700.

Luckily, there's a way to earn money fast in "Watch Dogs 2." While players can hack civilians and enemies, it's much easier to do so when they finally unlock Improved Profiler from the Social Engineering Skills tree. This will allow Marcus to hack $400-$1,000 out of people, and will make earning money faster.

Using enemy weapons

Another way to make better use of money in "Watch Dogs 2" is opting out of purchasing weapons from the DedSec HQ. These can be extremely expensive, and besides, there are better things to purchase. Unless the weapon is highly specialized, it's much better to simply acquire weapons from downed enemies, according to Twinfinite.

Worthwhile upgrades

GameRevolution reported that "Watch Dogs 2" players should also upgrade the Mass Distract hack, which would allow them to run through populated areas undetected, and unlocking car locks automatically, in order to avoid snitching people.
