Watch Dogs: Legion – How to get the Spy

Want to MI5 agent as a recruit? Follow this guide!

There's an array of different operatives you can find in near-future London in Watch Dogs: Legion, and getting a fair amount of variety will be in your best interests, as certain missions are better suited to specific operatives. Spies are one of the operatives you want to try to get an abundance of, though sadly, they are pretty rare to find when compared to the other characters available. If you are having difficulty finding one, this is where we come in. We'll tell you the best places to recruit them!

Where to get Spy

To get the Spy operative in Watch Dogs: Legion, the easiest way is to convert the City of Westminster borough; once this is done, you'll automatically unlock the spy MI5 agent to use in your game. However, if you are playing with permadeath on, and this skilled operative meets their demise, luckily, there is another way to find the Spy character.

Head on over to the borough named Lambeth and go to the MI5 building; you'll find it next to the river. If you are familiar with 007 - James Bond, you'll know this is where spies in London work, so there will be a fair number of recruitable agents in this location; just start scanning them all to find the best. Once you've selected one, approach them and complete their recruitment mission, and they are now yours to use!

You can also find them but not as often near buildings such as Blume and SIRS but are more common at night. The most obvious way to tell if they are spies even without scanning them is that the majority of the time, they'll be relaxing next to their spy vehicles, which is a slight giveaway if you ask us.

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.
