How to unlock ctOS Breaches?: Once you have hacked into the 13 ctOS Towers you can go after the ctOS Breach side missions right away. All parts of the city are available from the start of the game after you beat the prologue and then enter free roam.

How to find missing ctOS Breaches?: To unlock the ctOS Breach locations you must activate all 13 ctOS Towers. The ctOS Breaches are little side events in which you must hack 5 boxes within a certain time limit, basically they are ctOS Control Centers with servers to breach. You often have to climb up buildings or use surveillance cameras to reach these ctOS Boxes. In some cases you even need to place a vehicle in front of a wall and use it as a stair. You can start the ctOS Breaches by hacking the first ctOS Box.

When you gain access to the ctOS Towers, several of them have one or two corresponding ctOS Breaches. A ctOS Breach is a cluster of utility boxes that represents a security hole in the network, but when you try to exploit a breach, the system will detect your attempts at infiltration and act to shut your hack down. When the “Hack the remaining ctOS Boxes” message appears on-screen with a timer, this means you must find each box in a cluster within a few minutes to complete your hack, or security will close the window and you’ll be returned to square one. The guide videos will show the route to success.

Tip: None of the ctOS Breaches are missable and you can still get them in free roam after beating the story.

Note: Each ctOS Breach you clear, you gain 250 XP! And you’ll get access to intercepted Audio Files from Angela Balik.

Does the game save each ctOS Breach you hack?: Yes, the game will automatically save the ctOS Breaches you just opened if you hacked the ctOS Breach — when the on-screen map confirms it by opening up to show collectibles and more — so you don’t have to play to the end of a mission if you’re in one. After hacking each unlockable tower you can safely quit the mission without losing unlock progress, but obviously you should wait for the auto-saving icon to stop loading and disappear.
