Hackers:Tactics - Part 2 - The Hit and Run Combo

Postby Luminaar » Tue Jul 25, 2017 1:19 pm

Good afternoon Mr. Hacker.

Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to steal as many resources from your target as you can, before he can get a retrace on you.

The Hit and Run Combo has the potential to clean out your targets resources, while remaining safe from a counter attack - all without a single beam being charged by either party. Shots fired? Not today!

Using Access to work your way through a network, and letting Data Leech siphon off resources and Core data as you go, this combo can provide you with huge amounts of loot. This combination also has cheap program costs and quick compiling times to sweeten the deal even more!

Look for networks which have low level scanners, or have resources near their net connections, and you'll be laughing (and leeching) all the way to the bank!

Stealth attacks are dead IMHO. Just drop the Portal, that's all you need to do with Access program.

Unless you invest heavily in Portal upgrades, high level Scanners will render the ol' Portal onto the Sentry tactic obsolete by about level 30.

Still, that's not to say you can't be the first person to have a Level 21 Portal :D Who's got the highest Portal in-game atm, anyone know?

It's not prestigious, but the return is often 50 times more than the investment. It's inexpensive, quick to compile, and quick to hack with Access+Leech, and you can pull out early to avoid revenge for the one-night stand. Viable from level 5 to 30. After that, you usually need to bring Wraiths as well, but Wraiths are expensive and time consuming to compile, severely undermining this strategy.

It's not a strategy you can use once you start facing decently leveled scanners with more code gates and intricate network designs. It'd be interesting to see if anyone can pull this off for much longer and maybe even reach level 21 stealth without ever being retraced once... or at least without using brute force at all... damn... as someone that focused on stealth from the beginning, that sounds hard AF... Who ever can achieve this without spending real life money would become the true Stealth God in my books, though your profit margin would be pretty crappy, I feel like :lol: which is why it would be hard to pull off...

Thanks again for the GIF Remuz! Just Stealth programs used too - that's dedication!

Lmao who's running around with stealth 21 mid game? Some heavy investment went into that!
