    Actually made two videos on Viral Hacking for YouTube. Part 2 was uploaded just last weekend.

    They're mostly drone-focused, but I show off hacking other things in between parts as well.

    Do you hack them first with disable and then hack them again with betray.

    No, you don't have to. You can use the betray hack on any drone you see flying around as long as you've unlocked the skill for it with Tech Points.

    Additionally, if you see any drone summon platforms nearby (even if they're in restricted areas), you can summon drones there, too. They kind of hover around, and you can call up to 5. Just make sure to hijack them to move them around a little, so others can land.

    Then, you can betray all of the drones you called AS WELL AS any drone flying nearby--up to 9. A lot of restricted areas have summon platforms like this, so it could come in handy.

    Spoilers for story missions:

    You could probably use Viral Hacking during the missions Smoking Gun, Defanging the Flock, and the Blume section of Hard Reset with solid results since those are very drone-heavy missions. I didn't even think about that when I played since I also had no idea how Viral Hacking worked at the time, so I want to play through again and see what it can do.
