What does Hack do?
Hack is bound to Sombra’s Secondary Fire which is cn_LT by default.
Sombra can hack enemies, health packs, Torbjörn’s turret, and Orisa’s Supercharger. Hack has an 8 second cooldown and takes .65 seconds to hack. If you are damaged, Hack will be cancel and will give you a 2 second cooldown.
These are the following effects when you hack:
Enemies
Effect: Shows hacked enemy’s health bar to allies. Also shows if their ultimate is available to allies.
Time: 20 seconds

Effect: Stops them from using their abilities and ultimates, however passive abilities are still usable by the enemy. Some passive abilities are now hacked as well.
Time: 6 seconds

The way hacks work with enemy’s abilities varies widely and sometimes doesn’t act how you’d expect. I have made a list of how Hack affects the heroes and their abilities, but it’s not required that you know any of it, and, as such, is only a bonus. I imagine that Blizzard will update this without acknowledging it in the patch notes (like the way EMP now hacks Symmetra’s turrets). If something is inconsistent with the live version, feel free to comment or message me.

There seems to be a small frame of time after being hacked where enemies can still use their abilities. I have noted three examples down below, but there is most likely more. My theory is that as long as the ability is not interruptable, the ability can be used in that small frame of time.

Moira, Brigitte, and the Sombra Hack Buff are not included and will be added at a later time (probably)

How does Sombra’s Ultimate (EMP) work?
EMP is bound to Sombra’s Ability 3 which is cn_Y by default.
EMP is an important tool, as its hacks count towards this achievement.
EMP is an area of affect/line of sight that applies the hack effect to all enemies in the radius along with:
EMP specific affects
Destroys Winston’s Projected Barrier, Zaraya’s Particle Barrier and Applied Barrier, Reinhardt’s Barrier Field (if activated)

Destroys enemy hit point that are shields (i.e. Symmetra, Zenyatta, Zarya, and shield applied by Symmetra’s Shield Generator)

Destroys Lucio’s Sound Barrier

Hacking Symmetra’s Turrets

If you happen to EMP all six of the opposing team, along with it being very beneficial to this achievement, you will also unlock

How do I unlock Hack the Planet?
You must hack 15 enemies without dying (only enemies will count towards this achievement.).
Start by finding a big health pack and hacking it. When Hack has about 4 seconds left to cooldown, throw your Translocator on the health pack and flank around the enemy with Thermoptic Camo. Find an unsuspecting enemy to hack and then teleport back. Rinse and repeat.
Just remember that when Thermoptic Camo runs out/is cancelled, Sombra announces her appearance and takes a split second before you’re able to use abilities. Also remember that taking damage or using any abilities, excluding the Translocator, will cancel Thermoptic Camo.
You can press cn_back to check the numbers of enemies hacked. Remember that if you die, this number may not reflect achievement progress. Hacking via EMP also raises this number.

I used the Xbox DVR to record this, so you won’t see the achievement unlock. It unlocks near the end (once I start to fight.)

What maps are the best? What about Quick Play vs. Competitive?
Defending on Escort, Assault, or Hybrid maps. Control maps are okay, but it felt more difficult getting hacks there since games seemed to finish faster.
Maps with single choke points (Hanamura, Eichenwalde) could make it more difficult to flank successfully.

Apparently this must be done in a single round. If this is true, it is practically impossible to get this on a Control map and Competitive Games are actually going to be worse than Quick Play because of their shorter times.

How do I boost this achievement?
Players Required: 2
1. Get into a game with the other person and then leave the group.
2. Once you two are on opposing sides, choose Sombra and have your friend chose any hero (Tracer, Genji, and Sombra are good picks as they have more mobility.)
3. Hack your friend until you have 15 hacks.

The Lockdown Method
This is the most common method to boost Overwatch that requires 12 people.

*** Spoiler – click to reveal ***1. Get a group of 12 people.
2. Have everyone add each other as a friend in advance.
3. Enter a game as a three stack and have everyone else spectate off of them from the social tab (make sure to select “Join Game” and not simply “Spectate”). As people leave, the spectators will take their place*.Having the spectators join as described means they won’t be kicked in between games.
4. As soon as you get a person both sides, communicate to see how much people should be spectating both sides (i.e. how many randoms are on each side).
5. Once the lobby is full with all 12 people, start hacking the people from the other team. Get 15 and the achievement is yours. Remember to keep the objective contested unless it’s a Control map which will not need contesting unless someone captured it.

TROLLING CAN GET YOU BANNED IF YOU GET REPORTED. BEWARE OF THE METHODS YOU USE TO GET RANDOMS OUT OF THE LOBBY.

*Spectators will only fill allied spots.
