Watch Dogs Guide: Gang Hideout Locations

Here's your Watch Dogs guide to the Gang Hideouts and their locations.

Here's your Watch Dogs guide to the Gang Hideouts and their locations.

In Watch Dogs, when you’re hacking people for information, you’ll soon stumble on alerts for “possible gang hangouts.” These people usually have a specific icon in their profile. Throughout the game there are 15 Gang Hideout jobs to complete and a “special” mission that’ll unlock once they’re done (not required to complete).

The key thing to keep in mind, is that the more main missions you complete, the more gang hangouts will become available. These hangouts will be available in your map in the many city districts.

What you’ll need to do for these will be to reach your target, profile the target, take them down, eliminate or neutralize all enemies, and then escape. It’s pretty similar to most of the other objectives in the game in that regard.
