For this method, the GTA Online hacking device will be located inside a briefcase on the upper floors of the FIB Building, and if players are having trouble finding it, you can use the Sightseer app on the phone to let them know when they are close to it.


For the other method, players will need to steal the hacking device from the NOOSE HQ, where they will need to search an area, find and kill a corrupt agent to steal their access card.

Once players gain this access card, use it to enter the server farm, and similarly to the FIB variant, players will need to find a briefcase containing the haking device, which the Sightseer app may help them do.

Whichever you choose to do, the mission will end with players needing to take the GTA Online hacking device to the Arcade. Well, that’s it for where to find the hacking device in GTA Online. For more guides, stay tuned to Charlie INTEL.
