Aiden isn’t hard to locate in Watch Dogs: Legion; he’s hanging out at DedSec’s main HQ. This location is marked on the map with a Watch Dogs logo, but you can also get a waypoint specifically for Aiden. In the Mission menu, you’ll find a new side mission to recruit Aiden. Mark it as your active quest, and you can follow the road markers right to him.

Aiden is quite a powerful operative to have in your team. He’s equipped with several perks that make him a force to be reckoned with.

  • Focus: Slowmo aiming after takedown
  • Aiden’s Arsenal: Versatile weapon combination
  • System Crash: Disable electronics in the area
  • Gunslinger: Well timed reload buffs damage

He also has a meaty pistol, assault rifle, and an AR Cloak at his disposal.


There’s only one requirement for unlocking Aiden as an operative: you need to own either the season pass for Watch Dogs: Legion. If you already own the season pass, then this DLC will unlock for you automatically, and you’ll see Aiden appear in your campaign. Alternatively, you can play as him in the main campaign in the Bloodline expansion.
