I wonder if you took a perk/ability that causes you to hack faster? I had the base traits for my operative class, no ability increases, and when it ticked for 16exp per tick, I didn't have to pick up the controller at all once I had the enemy de-hacking while I hacked it.
400,000gs reached 1-13-15. Used D4 to get it (get it, it has 4 in the name) due to my disgust with how Halo: MCC has been handled. Achievement used for 400k milestone: Business as Usual.
