* BreatherLevel: "Grandma's Bulldog". The mission is purely camera hacking; no combat, no sneaking, so the only possible way to fail is to take too long hacking some of the firewalls. The level is mostly there [[ScenicTourLevel for you to spy on the Viceroys and learn more about the chapter's primary baddies]], while also developing Aiden and Clara's relationship.

* BestLevelEver:
** ''Uninvited'', where Aiden gets to set up an ambush for some gangsters and you are given free reign on how to wipe them out.
** ''A Risky Bid''. Aiden infiltrates Lucky Quinn's human trafficking auction, and after a long showcase of disturbing sexual imagery, you get to completely wreck the place and call the cops on whoever doesn't get killed.
** ''For The Portfolio'', where T-Bone and Aiden use T-Bone's traps to ''[[CurbStompBattle devastate]]'' a small army of Blume soldiers.
** ''By Any Means Necessary'', where Aiden storms Iraq's HQ, progressing through the tower while facing the entire Viceroys, culminating in a duel with Iraq himself on the tower's top.
** ''The Defalt Condition'', where Aiden pursues rival hacker Defalt through a rave. Defalt's creepy messages from other peoples' phones showcase how in control of the situation he is, and you eventually have to keep pace with his car through an intense chase to steal back your data.
** ''Sometimes You Still Lose'', where [[spoiler: Damien takes over [=ctOS=] and tries to kill you with it]]. All the hacking tricks you've used in the past, from blowing up steam pipes to screwing with traffic lights, are now being used against you, with a healthy dose of InterfaceScrew besides. It all culminates in [[spoiler:a massive city-wide blackout and Jordi's brief FaceHeelTurn]].
** The ''entire'' third act of ''Bad Blood'', which contains the following:
*** "Ghosts": After infiltrating a crumbling building full of Fixers, you find yourself wandering through an [[NightmareFuel eerie and twisted]] haunted house-esque display of [[spoiler:the victims of the 2003 blackout T-Bone caused]], culminating in TheReveal of why [[spoiler:Defalt]]'s been gunning for T-Bone. At the end of that, [[spoiler:Defalt]] causes a blackout himself, through which you have to fight your way through a final onslaught of Fixers making a beeline for you.
*** "HoldTheLine": Think "For the Portfolio" listed above, only throw in several more waves of Fixers, an ''assload'' of additional traps, and ''[[MundaneMadeAwesome cameras armed with]] [[MoreDakka machine guns]]''. Combine this with the game giving you far more ammo than you'll ever need, and you're pretty much given free reign to take out wave after wave of mooks in any way you see fit, and it's [[RuleOfFun every bit as fun as it sounds]]. To top it all off, the mission ends with a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Frewer.
*** "The Verdict": You infiltrate [[spoiler:Defalt]]'s base OneManArmy-style, first by taking out a small army of mooks guarding the entrance, then taking out another small army of them to hack your way in further. After that, [[spoiler:Defalt]] hits you with infrasonic waves, causing a bit of InterfaceScrew while you kick a few more asses. Then you guide Frewer through a maze filled with guards in an assisted stealth section that, thanks to the way the area is designed, makes it way more enjoyable than ''any'' of the similar sections in the main campaign. Finally, you fight through one last onslaught of Fixers before finally confronting [[spoiler:Defalt]] face-to-face, where you take him out in [[HoistByHisOwnPetard one of the most satisfying ways possible]].

** Using Jam Comms and Blackouts are actually a waste of inventory for ctOS scans triggered after taking down the target. The actual objective at that point is "Escape the Police", which means you have to actually get spotted for the Police to start chasing you, ''then'' you have to escape for that objective to be fulfilled.

** Defalt being called a ''Rat Kid'' may be a reference to a Latin American stereotype based on a Simpsons episode. Kids or pre-teens playing M-Rated games online, displaying immature behavior are called ''niños rata'' (literally, Rat Kids) in these countries. Defalt pretty much fits this stereotype.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The Privacy Invasion scene with the Cancer patient with an unborn baby is reminiscent of ''Series/BreakingBad''.



* LastLousyPoint:
** The "Social Lubricant" achievement for beating level 10 in all three Drinking Games. Said drinking games tend to be [[NintendoHard maddeningly difficult]] (''especially'' the one in Pawnee), making this one of the last achievements most players get. The kicker? This is considered a ''low level'' achievement (worth only 15 GP for 360/One, or a bronze-level Trophy for [=PS3=]/[=PS4=]). Thankfully, Ubisoft listened to the feedback and released a patch that dropped the difficulty level significantly, thus making them challenging but manageable.
** The "Traced" achievement for getting Tailed five times. Tailing is very rarely done due to the greatly reduced Notoriety/EXP earned from a successful tail vs. a successful hack, making this a LuckBasedMission GoneHorriblyWrong. Even worse, because it's a hidden Achievement, there's no way of telling how many times you've been tailed, since unlike Hacking, you're never alerted that you're being tailed unless you try to start a mission (or you use one of the methods detailed in GoodBadBugs above). And to make it worse? Like Social Lubricant, it's a low level achievement (Meaning those values above also apply here).
** The "Disk Space Full" achievement for nabbing all 23 unlockable songs. 3 of them come naturally through the story, 17 of them can either be picked up from pedestrians or can be found playing in stores and newspaper stands, the last 3 can only be found from pedestrians. By the time you're down to one song left unfound, it's likely it'll be one of those three, and it'll seem like a literal one-in-a-million chance to find someone who has it.

** 'Two months are enough to visit Los Santos', taken from a rather infamous ad involving a jab at GrandTheftAutoV. Became a rather mocking statement aimed at the game when GTA V proved more technically sound, and much better received overall.
