While it's generally accepted money won'tbuy you happiness, in WatchDogs 2 Money it can certainly make missions easier and help Marcus looklike a little cooler with some new clothes. Thankfully, there's a bunch of waysto make money in Watch Dogs 2, and while big pay-outs are few and far between,if you stick to some best practices your bank balance will grow sooner than youthink.
What is money used for in Watch Dogs 2?

Money is used mostly for customisation,allowing you to buy new clothes from the game's many vendors (Clothing Shops,Vending Machines and Tourist Kiosks) as well as extra skins for vehicles youown.

Speaking of which, dealerships sell cars,bikes and other vehicles you can then request in the Car on Demand app, whichcost from the tens to the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Of course, you canignore this altogether, since you can steal a car easily from most locations,or fast travel to most areas. But if you have cash to spare, here's where youcan spend it.

Cash is also used to buy new weapons fromthe 3D printer in a Hackerspace HQ, which holds arguably the most importantpurchase in Watch Dogs 2 - the Quadcopter. The remote controlled drone can beused to hack and survey targets from afar, and ends up being essential if youwant to find every Key Data and for completing some of the later storymissions.Unlike Followers, you won't get cash for completing missions (asidefrom any Money Bags or other pick-ups you find along the way). Instead, you'llcollect it little-by-little from exploring the world in various ways, or takingpart in specific open-world activities.
As well as Research Points and Key Data,you'll occasionally locate Money Bags nearby by using the NetHack vision (clickin the right stick on a console to activate). These tend to give you around$5,000 a pop, but are usually located in restricted areas guarded by enemies.If you're able to get in and out quickly, they're not a bad time investment -especially if you use a Jumper or Quadcopter.
