  3. Anti-Shock Suit — Shock Immunity
  4. Random

Bee Swarm, Overcharger, and Anti-Shock Suit are all guaranteed benefits, with the fourth being randomized to make the Beekeeper somewhat more unique to each player.

How to use Bee Swarm

By holding down RB/R1, players can target up to three enemies (highlighted in red) at once and unleash a deadly swarm of bees on them. Neutralizing 10 Albion guards using Bee Swarms will net users the “NO NOT THE BEES” Achievement or Trophy.

It’s important to note that the Bees Swarm ability can not be used against civilians in Watch Dogs: Legion. If the bees fly away from their target, it’s because they’re avoiding innocent victims to seek out hostiles.

Quirky characters and abilities are just one of the reasons Watch Dogs: Legion earned a recommendation in the Game Revolution review. It might be missing multiplayer at launch and struggling to perform on PC, but that doesn’t spoil the fun.
