Find new weapons and skills, finish the side missions and unlock the last achievements as we help you 100% Watch Dogs.


By now you’ve no doubt completed the single player campaign for Watch Dogs, one of the best games released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this year. It has its faults, but it’s an accomplished game and will clearly become the next mega-franchise for publisher Ubisoft – and that can only mean better experiences for gamers in the long term.

If you’ve not yet finished it or are struggling with a few missions, check out our complete walkthrough of all 5 Acts right here.

While the main campaign is a big task, there’s plenty of more side missions and extras to unlock elsewhere in the game. Some weapons such as the AK47 or the Gangster Assault rifle can only be unlocked through these missions, as can achievements such as Sanity Check and Saturday Night Special, and the Rapid Reload skill.

The map also becomes a lot easier and quicker to navigate once you’re taken down all the ctOS towers, which then reveal the locations of the burner phones – so some of these missions are worth completing before you’ve worked your way through the entire campaign.

It’s an ongoing investigation but we can help you through to reach real conclusions and 100 percent the game. Below are guides to all the secret, hidden and bonus missions in Watch Dogs:

All 16 QR code locations, hidden messages, the gangster assault rifle and the Read-Only Trophy/Achievement

All 13 ctOS Tower locations and the Clear Signals Trophy/Achievement

All 8 Burner Phone locations and Sanity Check Trophy/Achievement

Missing Persons Investigations – Finger Paint Killer, Darkness Looms Trophy/Achievement
