Watch Dogs: Legion allows you to recruit anyone in London into your group of deadly DedSec agents. The thing is, there are certain operatives that are vastly superior to others, and you don’t want to be stuck with a dud in your group. One of those is the Watch Dogs: Legion Hitman, an operative above all others. If you want to have a lot of fun running around futuristic London tearing apart Albion, then read on for how to recruit this incredible operative.

Before you can recruit the Hitman, there are a couple of things that you’ll need to have done. Firstly, you need to head to the Nine Elms district of London. Once there, do the following.

There are three tasks you need to complete in Nine Elms. The first is to destroy a terminal, the second is killing a VIP, and the third is photographing evidence of Albion’s evil plans.

These are actually a part of the story, so you should come across each task as you play the game naturally. If you don’t, then check up on where you are in the game, and see how far off these tasks are.

With all three of those tasks complete, you’ll now be given the mission ‘Black Hole of Battersea’. Once again, this is a core part of the story, so keep playing and you’ll come across it pretty quickly.

The mission sees you head to Battersea Power Plant and infiltrate it. There are captives underneath the structure, and it’s down to you to free them from their captors.

When you complete this mission, the Hitman will permanently join your DedSec recruits. They are a fantastic option for those who love to run into fights guns blazing, and can take out a group of enemies extremely fast.

Make the Most of Them

Watch Dogs: Legion gives you the option to play with permadeath on. This sees recruits die when they take too much damage, and there’s no way to recover them. You can turn this off of course, but why would you?

With this in mind, it’s important that you don’t overuse your Hitman in the game. If you run around with them at all times, there’s a good chance that they’ll be killed before you’ve made the most of their skills.

The Hitman is all about getting in and killing everyone very quickly. They’re not always the stealthiest of characters, but they get the job done. If you’re struggling with a particular mission, then you should give it a go with them. However, I don’t recommend you running into every single mission with them, because they might get hit with a load of bullets. in a mission that requires a very different approach altogether.

That’s everything there is to know about the Watch Dogs: Legion Hitman. Once again, this is an incredibly powerful operative, and one that you’ll adopt into your ranks organically as you progress through the game. Don’t go out of your way to try to find them, they will come to you.
