Watch Dogs: Legion Character Recruitment Location Guide

Watch Dogs Legion Character Recruitment Location Guide
While some of it’s random, there are unique and powerful operatives to recruit. This Watch Dogs: Legion Character Recruitment Location Guide tells you where to find the strongest, most unique operative characters that we have discovered and recruited to join our cause in DedSec.

Nearly all characters you can encounter and recruit, called Operatives, have a random aspect assigned to them. This can be a simple name change or history edit, but some of them do boast the same powerful skills for different play throughs. Be sure to check out our Watch Dogs: Legion Recruitment Guide for a rundown of the basics of character recruitment. Below is a list of the best character operatives we’ve found, ones without completely random stats, so you can recruit them for your team too.
