From returned police officers to spies, homeless beggars, and even nanobot beekeepers, Watch Dogs: Legion's agents come in many archetypal roles, but one of the best agents to unlock is Watch Dogs: Legion. Hitman, the game's very own group of John Wick wannabes.
If you don't mind getting a little messier than typically non-lethal DedSec agents are comfortable with, the Hitman skill set brings demanding brutality to your hacker collective. It's basically like adding John Wick to your Watch Dogs: Legion squad. No really, the moves and weapons are directly inspired by Keanu Reeves' beloved Dead Dog Avenger.
Here's exactly where to find the Hitman in Watch Dogs: Legion, along with a breakdown of the Hitman's special skills and tech.
Where to Find a Hitman in Watch Dogs: Legion
As with Watch Dogs: Legion Spy, the Hitman archetype can be found in two ways.
The first is to simply get to them in the open world. All characters can be recruited, and you can view a character's traits like their job and special skills by holding LB/L1 when hovering over them.
That said, there's a much more reliable way to unlock a Hitman and you can do that pretty early too. Once you're able to hit the open world and start transforming the districts into their Defiant state, head to the southwest corner of the map to the Nine Elms district.
Here you'll find the three usual Defiance side missions, marked with red map markers. Completing all of these missions will reveal a fourth and final Defiance mission in Nine Elms where you'll take down an Albion contractor.
Once you've done this, you'll receive a new uprising-ready district, but more importantly, you'll also unlock the Hitman Agent, who will instantly join your team without further recruitment.
Watch Dogs: Legion Hitman Skills Explained
As with other Prime Agents earned by transforming Defiant Districts, Agent Hitman has some very useful and unique skills. Here's a look at what Hitman brings to the table.
Desert Eagle + G36
This pair of powerful weapons is unlike most of the others you'll find in Watch Dogs: Legion. The Desert Eagle and G36 are super accurate and super deadly, while much of DedSec's repertoire consists of non-lethal options like stun guns and electric mines. If you don't mind a little gore, the Hitman packs quite a punch.
This unique skill allows for even faster takedown animations, like what you've probably seen in the John Wick series. With Guntaka, stealth is a little easier thanks to how quickly you can take down unwitting enemies.
Another skill unique to the Hitman is the ability to roll while in combat. To use the combat roll, double tap A/X while sprinting and your Hitman will roll around in style, weapon drawn, much like that guy from John Wick. Yeah, the inspiration is obvious.
This skill is once again like a wick in that it allows you to do more damage against your mortal enemies, in this case Albion, the Big Tech villains in Watch Dogs: Legion. A punch like this could be the difference between life and death in Watch Dogs: Legion's permadeath mode.
That's everything you need to know about Watch Dogs: Legion Hitman and how to recruit them for your very own John Wick style agent. For more on Ubisoft's latest dystopian sandbox, find all of our guides here and our full review here.
