** Ded Sec. A group of hackers dedicated to bringing down the system. They plan to take down Blume, and prove that nobody's safe in Chicago. Hell, ''they'' get the TitleDrop near the end.

*** Aiden's overarching goal is to find out why he was targeted by the hit that killed his niece, find the person responsible and make them pay. Yet at no point did Aiden ''ever'' think to investigate the Merlot, where he knows his hack was detected a few days prior to the hit. Especially when it's later shown that the Merlaut is owned by the most powerful crime lord in the city, and that this is a publicly known fact (Said Crime Lord hosts political rally in his own name for the Mayor he supports in said hotel, and is thanked in front of all the guests for his generosity). To recap: Aiden does a hack in a hotel belonging to a figure widely reputed to be the city's dominant crime lord. The hack fails and he's detected. A few days later he's the target of a hit. Aiden never considered those events ''might be linked''.

** Aiden himself. He wouldn't be stuck in the trouble he's in, if he had listened to Damien in the first place. Sure, Damien isn't the most trustful person and he majors in being a dickhead, but when it's someone you've worked with before and know he's a little on edge, maybe the best thing isn't to show it in his face. He also could have saved himself some time by abducting Damien the first time they meet in-game. For a supposed genius social engineer, Aiden's not good at seeing obvious villains.

** What you see at the auction firmly confirms Lucky Quinn as a CompleteMonster. Iraq hits it there as well, although not quite as hard.

Iraq hits it there as well, although not when he bashes a guys head to death with a brief case. Although he doesn't hit it quite as hard.hard as the other two.

** This has become the main view for many players who like the game, they stick around for everything else. Though others complain at the fact that all these side missions do absolutely nothing for the main game.



** A lot of flak is leveled at the protagonist, Aiden Pearce, for being not nearly as interesting as the other characters like the lovable sociopath Jordi, genius redneck T-Bone, French Canadian goth Clara, tormented triggerman Maurice, creepy-as-fuck Lucky Quinn, etc.



** However, if you complete ten Criminal Convoy missions beforehand, you get the [[{{BFG}} Destroyer]] sniper rifle, which can down any Enforcer with a single headshot, turning [[spoiler: Iraq]] into an AnticlimaxBoss.

* InferredHolocaust: The Bad Blood DLC deals with what happens during a blackout, but the game barely acknowledges it otherwise. The very first mission has you blackout a stadium during a sports game while at the same time planting evidence of a gang-shootout having happened there and ingame dialogue already mentions fans invading the pitch. A mass panic isn't exactly an unlikely event to happen in these circumstances. Additionally, there's little evidence that hospital systems are secured any better against your hacks.

** Details aside, the way the [=CTOS=] interface is displayed on the screen and the fact that you play a heavily-armed {{Badass}} who uses it to solve problems ''also'' predicted by it means it's the closest to a ''Series/PersonOfInterest'' game people will ever get.
