Welcome to Part 2 of our Watch Dogs Legion tips and tricks guide. In the previous article, we covered some basic tricks to give you a head start in the game. If you missed it, be sure to give it a read as we cover some simple ways to make liberating London a lot easier for you.
In this article, we cover some more advanced tricks as well as a few cool nuggets that the game doesn’t tell you.
Get Shock Hack
There are simple hacks you can perform on enemies in Watch Dogs Legion, including distracting them and hacking their phone. There are some operatives, however, who can make use of the Shock Hack. This will electrocute enemies, incapacitating them temporarily and knocking out half of their health. It’s a great way to thin out the herd when you enter a restricted area and want to be as stealthy as possible.
Check for Fast Travel
Watch Dogs Legion is pretty clear about your hideout and base of operations being a fast travel spot. What it doesn’t tell you clearly, though, is that the various metro stations scattered around the oppressed city of London also serve as fast travel spots. You can tell which ones you’ve unlocked by heading into your map and clicking onto the white metro symbols. Before choosing to hoof it or grab a car, it’s a good idea to check your map for any stations near your target location.
Get Back Into Cover
As you go about your business hacking and sneaking through different corners of London, you’ll inevitably find yourself under pursuit by the police and Albion agents. While shooting your way out of this situation is always an option, there’s an easier way to lose them. What you simply need to do is run out of their line of sight and get behind cover. They’ll still walk up to you but if they haven’t seen you actually hide, they’ll just look around for a bit then call it quits and leave you alone. Pay attention to the read pursuit markers and wait until they turn white before coming out of cover.
Look for Spiderbot Boxes
Having a spiderbot in your Watch Dogs Legion operative’s inventory is always a nice idea. Those little bugs are extremely handy and can be used to get through most missions. A lot of areas, however, have a spiderbot box you can use to call upon a mechanical arachnid friend by hacking into it. This means you can have a free inventory slot for another gadget or tool and use the box in the area to call upon a spiderbot if needed.
Operatives with Uniformed Access
Watch Dogs Legion is all about amassing an army of operatives to help DedSec take back London. This means you can recruit anybody, and we mean literally anybody you see around you. Even members of Albion, the police and anyone else wearing a uniform. If you do manage to recruit such operatives, they can make getting into restricted buildings and areas a lot easier.
