Side Missions are basically optional side objectives that players can unlock and complete if they fancy taking a break from the main story for a bit.
In order to find one of these side missions you will need to locate the small blue diamond type icons or markers that are scattered throughout the map. Once you have managed to find one simply speak to the quest giver, NPC, to begin.
A lot of these side missions either require you to fix networks, complete uploads, and of course defeat a ton of mean angry men along the way.
Each side mission has its own set of rewards, which usually includes additional XP. Completing all of these side missions will unlock the Friendly Neighbourhood Spiderman trophy achievement.
More side missions become available as you continue to progress through the main story.
This specific page will be focusing on completing the Internet Famous side mission
SIDE MISSION: Internet Famous
REWARDS: 1500 XP
QUEST GIVER: Woman (Screwball)
When you arrive at Harlem and speak with the woman here she will instantly ask us if we plan on doing the Screwball Challenge. Of course we have no idea what she is referring to.
The woman will then rather vaguely tell us what the challenge requires us to do at least. Apparently we need to take pictures of the code on the wall.
Get out your camera and take a picture of the code on the wall nearby. This will then kick start an objective where we will then need to find other similar codes and take pictures of those ones too.
These codes can be rather complex and difficult to actually take photos of as they require us to take a picture of the entire code. However, their positioning on the wall can make this rather challenging.
The first code can be got by taking a picture from the roof of the building directly opposite. For the second one, you will have to take a picture of it whilst in mid-air or hanging on the side of the wall. Either way we need to head to the large building slightly south west of the code (as seen in the picture above). The other nearby buildings are simply too small in order to pull this off.
After successfully taking photos of both of the codes Screwball will then send out her fans to plant bombs all around the nearby area. We will now have 40 seconds in order to remove all of the bombs before they manage to do any significant damage. There are 3 bombs to dispose of in total.
After taking care of the bombs we will now get a GPS tracking signal to a kidnapped victim that we will need to rescue. We will find the victim inside a nearby garage.
