Basic operatives come with a non-lethal pistol and sometimes a lethal alternative, but these are underpowered and need upgrading fast! Picking up new guns in Watch Dogs: Legion is key to balancing the fight, as missions get tougher and tougher. What’s more, using enemy weapons against them is one of the most satisfying things a player can do. It’s only natural to spot a grenade launcher in the hands of an enemy and want to steal it.
