8 tips for the beginners in Watch Dogs Legion

Watch Dogs Legion is an incredibly large-scale and ambitious project that makes it possible to play as any character in the vastness of virtual London. Anyone who you like can become a member of a hacker group, but whether he will be useful or become a burden depends solely on the player.


We decided to collect all the most important tips for newbies who first launched Watch Dogs Legion . They will definitely help you not to screw up at the start of your hacking career.


Include "permanent" death at the very beginning


Include "permanent" death at the very beginning


Let's start with a tip that may sound strange to some, but is actually worth following for every newcomer to Watch Dogs. "Permanent" death is a mode in which if one of your hackers dies, it will not work to bring him back from the other world. That is, each character can only die once. Many do not turn on this mode, thinking that with it the game will simply become more hardcore and you can lose valuable "employees". In fact, it imposes certain restrictions on your entire hacker gang.

In Watch Dogs Legion you have the opportunity to recruit absolutely any character, there is no main character in the game. At the same time, there is a limit on the number of hackers in a team. Accordingly, gathering a whole army of fans to hack Facebook accounts for 100 rubles will not work. "Permanent" death will make it possible to replace the dead hackers with new ones and thereby test different characters and gradually understand which ones are most effective for your gang. If this mode is disabled, then at some point you will have to be content with the same agents.

Don't get attached to your first agent


Don't get attached to your first agent


After completing the prologue, you will be given the opportunity to choose one of 15 random agents. Each of them will have only one perk, and quite a trivial one. That is, the basic agents in Watch Dogs Legion , in fact, are unremarkable and you shouldn't really rely on their skills. In the future, you will discover more capable hackers who will have 3-4 effective perks at once.

That is, as soon as you have access to cooler agents, hire them without remorse and say goodbye to those you took in the beginning. Do not get attached to the pixel team members, otherwise in the future you will have a lot of problems with all these self-taught hackers at minimum salaries.


Stop wasting time recruiting


Stop wasting time recruiting


I repeat once again, you can recruit almost any character that you meet on the streets of virtual London into your team. In order for a potential hacker to join your team, you will need to complete a small task for him. At the same time, these missions are usually very simple, but the goal is always far enough from the meeting place with a potential agent. That is, you spend a lot of time running around the city.

Considering the fact that in Watch Dogs Legion there is a main plot and spending all the time recruiting agents is not the best idea, you should put off really valuable characters for later. When you scan a character, you will have the opportunity to save data about him and then find him in your spare time. As a result, you have the opportunity to calmly move through the plot and be distracted from time to time by recruiting. Also, the ability to save data about a character helps to compare him with new "acquaintances", and if no one better was found, then return to the "postponed" applicant for a place in your team.

Cargo drone flight

In Watch Dogs Legion you will be given the opportunity to manage the cargo drone. It can be hacked and used even without specific character improvements, that is, the drone is available to absolutely all agents. The iron colossus supposedly should be used only for collecting items, or, for example, to take some box with the help of a drone and then throw it on the enemy's head. But who said that these are all his capabilities?

The drone is made in such a way that your character can climb on it without any problems and arrange a kind of aerial "surfing". In fact, it is the ideal form of transport to travel. Moreover, it helps both quickly overcome the distance and, for example, climb onto the roof of a building or be used as an additional platform.


Rise of the Machines

The creators of Watch Dogs Legion have added several features to the game that will definitely appeal to real engineers. In addition to the cargo drone, you also have a Spiderbot, a mechanical spider that can completely replace the main character.

If you don't want to get your hands dirty or are used to playing these games with maximum stealth, then the Spiderbot + cargo drone combo is the best option. For example, you can hover over a city, standing on the surface of a cargo drone and dump your iron spider into restricted areas for hacking. As a result, he will do all the dirty work for you, and the security will not even understand that the hacker is in a prohibited area. Spiderbot also resurrects your agents if you play with disabled "permanent" death, well, for a gang of hackers it is much better when they break a "pocket" robot than to put an agent behind bars.


Try Autodrive


Try Autodrive


Let me remind you that in England there is left-hand traffic, and for some it can cause certain problems. Of course, if you are interested in traffic rules and pedestrians at all. Nevertheless, the London of the future awaits you in Watch Dogs Legion , and there are already cars that can drive without a driver. Actually, the Autodrive function will help to activate this mode.

Autodrive is only available on vehicles with an “A” or “Wi-Fi” symbol. Of course, in automatic mode, the vehicle moves noticeably slower than with manual control, but you will not have to get used to left-hand traffic, and pedestrians will be safe. What if one of your future agents is among them?

Clear areas between story missions


Clear areas between story missions


Ubisoft wouldn’t be Ubisoft if it didn’t add neighborhood clearing or liberation and the like to its game. However, in Watch Dogs Legion, neighborhood clearing pays noticeable dividends, and in the early stages of the game, this activity will help you get more capable hackers for your gang.

First, for clearing an area, you can get a special agent who will have a noticeable superiority over other team members. Second, the more districts you control, the easier it is to recruit new hackers. Well, and thirdly, after capturing the area, you will see on the map all the nishtyaks hidden in it and you can replenish your arsenal with them. So don't forget to clean up areas in the early stages of Watch Dogs Legion., this will give you a lot of benefits.


Don't run with a gun


Don't run with a gun


Trivial advice, but perhaps for those who are not familiar with the Watch Dogs series at all , it will be useful. In general, with the press of one button, you can take up a weapon, and at the same time the character will put on a DedSec mask. This is necessary when you are performing a mission in a protected area. In the mask, no one stupidly recognizes you, but the weapon will be useful to you, you understand why.

Despite the fact that the character looks quite brutal with a weapon in his hands, you better not run around the city with a barrel for an advantage. The fact is that the cannon and the mask will immediately begin to arouse suspicion, and you will be interested in the cops or security guards who will meet along the way. In general, if you still did not understand why passers-by begin to turn around at the sight of your steep trunk, then just stop running with it and finally hide it.

Well, in the end, I would like to say that when playing Watch Dogs Legion , you have to start thinking like a hacker. The game is full of all kinds of puzzles, but you can solved them with the help of several tools, basically only the order of their use changes. For example, when you need to get into a closed area, you should find cameras, find out if you can break the door, and look for a ventilation shaft. Think like a real hacker and definitely you will succeed on the streets of virtual London.
