Watch Dogs 2 Gnome Easter Egg – Starting The Quest
A short distance South East of Fisherman’s Wharf is a Seafood Restaurant. It’s not actually marked on the map as a bar or restaurant but if you had to the location marked on the image above you’ll spot the large restaurant area straight away. There’s a Research Point underneath the restaurant. If you check the small stairs on the North East corner you’ll notice a gap underneath, use your RC Jumper to get underneath the restaurant.
Next to the Research Point is a gnome and a laptop. Get close enough to the laptop so that you’re able to interact with it, this will make a funny icon appear in the upper left corner of the screen. You can also use the RC Jumper to zoom in on the laptop screen to get the locations of all of the gnomes, although we’ve got that covered for you below.

This can be found in the Western side of the area in the screenshot above. It’s on top of a rooftop terrace up several sets of white, wooden stairs.
Inside the small shed like structure. I had to use my RC Jumper to pick up the gnome, it was a bit figdety.
Use the nearby crane to lift you to the top in the South West corner of this area. The same area as the Research Point. There’s a locked vent. Interact with the vent and then use the RC Jumper to follow the line to the hackable object to unlock the vent. Then use the RC Jumper to get into the vent.
It’s on top of the small building that has the unicorn crapping a rainbow paint job on the side. There’s a scissor lift North of the building that you can use.
Fast travel to the restaurant to the North East of the map screenshot above then head towards the Transbay Center. You’ll see some large steps, follow those up and then another set of stairs to the roof. Search for the large red sculpture. Nearby is a square bush, in the middle is the gnome. Use the Quadcopter if you get lost.
Head into the red area marked on the map. In the North East corner is a group of tents surrounded by a wall. The gnomes can be found sitting in a bathtub. It’s at the RC Jumper location on the map image above.
Fast travel to the coffee shop to the South East of the area in the map screenshot above. Then walk down the North West road between the buildings. You’ll see a red brick building up the road. Use the crane opposite to get on the roof next to the red brick building and you’ll see the gnome chilling in the corner.
Fast travel to the nearby clothes shop and then walk across the road and behind the buildings. Get out your Quadcopter and search the higher levels of the area for a jacuzzi. The gnome can be found next to it.
Fast travel to the Kiosk near the stadium. From there head East and go across the river and up the ladder the other side. There’s a red area here, clear the enemies and follow the walkway to the North. It goes into a tunnel, keep following the tunnel all the way until you see some boats on the left hand side. There’s a ladder there, climb the ladder.
Using the map screenshot above. Travel to the red Kiosk. Then the white X (ignore the blue markers) and travel North into the tunnel.
