On this page of the Watch Dogs Legion guide, you will learn more about exploration and ways of traversing the map.
Why should I explore the map?
Locations in Watch Dogs Legion are divided into regions. Each of them has something interesting for you. The game has multiple things that encourage you to explore the game world. The main reason for exploring the map is to find and recruit new people for DedSec.
Whether you are looking for characters based on their looks or perks, you have to travel the world map to find a perfect agent who will help you with more than just missions.
The second reason for exploration is to look for Tech Points hidden in different locations. They will help you improve gadgets, weapons, and new ways of hacking. Tech Points are scattered all over London. They are most often found on the roofs of buildings or in hard-to-reach places.
Many of them are also located in restricted areas. Finding a large number of Tech Points at the very beginning of the game will allow you to quickly upgrade various gadgets or unlock weapons. This will make the storyline much easier to complete.
Keep in mind that if you are having trouble completing a mission, look for Tech Points to improve your equipment.
Exploration also allows you to earn another currency in Watch Dogs Legion, namely ETO. This currency is useful when you want to buy an item from the store, such as clothes. In addition to ETO, exploration also allows you to obtain various data that will help you to better understand the plot of the game, get cosmetic items like unique masks, or come across various cosmetics.
Exploration, however, is not just about the profits. You can also admire the beautiful views and find interesting places. Thanks to various devices, including drones, you can admire the city from a bird's eye view. However, this does not mean that you won't find interesting places when moving on foot or by car.
What should I use while exploring?
There are many ways to explore London. If you just want to explore and admire the world of the game, you can slowly walk down the streets. If you want to get to your destination quickly, the best options are sports cars or motorcycles. The latter will work much better due to better maneuverability and a smaller size.
If you want to get to another place, you can also use Autodrive. Mark any point on the map and then get into the vehicle. Then click the Autodrive button. With this solution, you can do other things unrelated to the game. After some time, your vehicle will reach the destination.
One of the best ways to explore hard-to-reach locations is to use a cargo drone. This is the best way to explore and discover the many secrets of the game. Most Tech Points and masks can be found on the roofs of buildings.
To get to them, you need to use a cargo drone. The only downside is that if you use a drone to explore a large area and find a lot of hidden objects, you won't move as fast as with other methods. The drone is not very fast, so if you want to move to the other end of the city, it is better to drive a car or a motorbike.
Once you are at the destination, use a cargo drone and fly around the region.
