Which First Operative To Choose In Watch Dogs: Legion

Which First Operative To Choose In Watch Dogs Legion
Right at the start of Watch Dogs: Legion, you have a choice to make. This guide on Which First Operative To Choose In Watch Dogs: Legion breaks down the initial Operatives that you have available, as you’re allowed to choose a single character to begin your journey.

Operatives are a key part of your adventures and exploits in Watch Dogs: Legion. They represent playable characters and each character is unique in a number of ways. The way they act, the way they talk, the special abilities they have available, each is different and unique in their own way. As such, choosing your first operative is an important choice – albeit a rather straightforward one.

Which First Operative To Choose In Watch Dogs: Legion

Like the Operatives that you will encounter during the game, this list is randomized. This means you will have a different selection of characters than someone else. Ultimately, this gives you complete freedom in choosing your first operative as there is no clear cut choice on who is the best operative and who is the worst.

However, there are definitely some abilities that will be more beneficial than others – depending on your style of play. For example, grabbing an Operative that begins with a Full-Auto SMG will definitely help if you favor an aggressive play style with shooting.

On the opposite end of the scale, you could choose someone with the Fast Hacking ability. This ability allows the Operative to hack different devices and security stations much quicker, a valuable tool for those that favor the stealth aspects of the game.

Blaine Smith

Blaine "Captain Camper" Smith is one of the original founders of Gamers Heroes. Now operating under the guise of Editor-in-Chief (purely because we felt the position was needed for public relations purposes), he's tasked with a lot of the kind of jobs that would put you to sleep at your desk. When he's not catching some Zs, you'll likely find him arguing points he knows nothing about, playing the latest rogue-like he'll never complete, or breaking something on the website that never needed fixing.
