Watch Dogs Legion features numerous high tech gadgets the player can use to aid them on their adventure through the city streets of London. Find out all the information you need to know about Watch Dogs Legion’s gadgets and what they do. 

Watch Dogs Legion’s enemies can be a hardy bunch and you’ll need to kit your character out with more than just a few conventional weapons. After all, just one mistake can result in your favorite character winding up dead for good. Watch Dogs Legion’s permadeath feature is certainly an interesting feature and one that makes every single firefight matter. Fortunately, there are a number of handy gadgets that you can use to alleviate this issue. 

From remote controlled spider bots that can provide non-lethal takedowns to AR cloaks that render the user invisible, there’s a gadget for every single situation. There are six gadgets available in Watch Dogs Legion and each of them has its own unique features and upgrade paths.

To help you understand each Watch Dogs Legion gadget, we’ve put together a handy guide that covers everything you need to know about these game-changing items.

Infiltrator Spider

Watch Dogs Legion Infiltrator Spiderbot
This mechanical spider offers plenty of stealthy options.

As the name suggests, the Infiltrator Spider gadget is all about creeping into enemy filled locations. This little eight-legged bot’s low profile enables it to crawl through vents and tight spots with ease, allowing you to gain access to even the most well-protected places. Once you’ve found a hacking point, simply use the Infiltrator Spider to upload a deadly virus to hamper your enemies’ systems. 

If that wasn’t enough, the Infiltrator Spider is also capable of performing non-lethal takedowns. This is particularly useful if you wish to avoid getting into an intense firefight with any of the local gangs. 

AR Cloak

Watch Dogs Legion AR Cloak
Invisibility is always going to make things easier.

Watch Dogs Legion’s AR Cloak is one of the most useful gadgets in the entire game. Once activated, your character will instantly go invisible and break line of sight. While it can be fun to infiltrate an enemy-controlled area with your guns blazing, it’s sometimes better to take a stealthier approach. 

Future upgrades greatly increase the AR Cloak’s duration and even give your takedowns greater reach. If you’re looking to quietly dispatch your foes, then the AR Cloak is one gadget that you’ll want to prioritize. 


Sometimes you just got to pummel your enemies.

Watch Dogs Legion has given this iconic melee-based weapon an electrifying twist. While brass knuckles are lethal in their own right, this shockingly powerful gadget packs more than just a powerful punch. The Electro-Fist is capable of knocking out an opponent in just one hit. Simply creep up to your target and deliver a lethal KO that they’ll never forget.

Upgrading the Electro-Fist will enable you to unleash a shockwave that disorients nearby enemies. 

Electro-Shock Trap

Electro-Shock Trap Watch Dogs Legion
Launch deadly surprise attacks with a shocking twist.

A non-lethal shock trap that can be used to shock enemies and heavily damage drones and vehicles. This gadget is best used when you wish to disrupt your enemies’ movements. While it may not be the fanciest gadget in Watch Dogs Legion, it does allow you to launch some incredibly satisfying traps. Simply find an area that sees a lot of enemy traffic and place your Electro-Shock Trap down, then watch as the volts begin to fly. 

Combat Spiderbot

Combat Spiderbot
This deadly bot will make firefights even more deadly.

Unlike the stealth-based Infiltrator Spider gadget, this robotic arachnid has a more gung-ho approach to combat. The Combat Spiderbot is no stranger to a firefight and it’s at its best when the bullets are flying. This little gadget is kitted out with an automated turret and armor, giving you extra firepower whenever you need it. 

If you wish to increase the turret’s rate of fire or manually control the turret yourself, then you’ll want to spend your Tech Points on Combat Spiderbot upgrades. 

Missile Drone

Watch Dogs Legion Missile Drone
Missile Drones give explosive results.

Sometimes you just need to create a big explosion to wipe out your foes. Fortunately, the Missile Drone allows you to do just that. This little drone flies straight towards a random target and instantly detonates upon impact.

The Missile Drone will target any opponent, so you’ll need to upgrade it if you wish to take control of its target-seeking capabilities.

Warzone’s rise has been meteoric and its combination of exquisite Call of Duty gunplay and Battle Royale excitement has sold people across the globe. The free-to-play shooter attracts new, intrigued gamers every day.

So it’s safe to assume that many will not be aware of the game’s greatest assets to own. More still, experienced players of the game may have become stifled by their existing options and fancy a change. So here we have the 5 best loadouts you can rock in Warzone.

How to get your loadout

These contain access to your loadout and other items.

For newcomers, you may be wondering how it is you can even equip your specialist loadout. After all, starting with a pistol doesn’t scream loadout freedom.

All you need to do to be able to use your loadout in-game is scavenge $10,000 and get yourself a loadout drop from the Buy Station.

Best loadouts

Some of these weapons have stood the test of time in Warzone and continue to be the go-to guns for guaranteed success. You may be using some of these already, but have you necessarily got the right attachments for them as well?

These are some of the most popular guns and attachments in Warzone.

Kilo 141

Infinity Ward
The Kilo 141.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

This ultra-reliable assault rifle is a god-tier weapon that has won many a player many a game.

These attachments make it quite a good utility gun and extremely powerful. Favoring power and precision, this setup makes the Kilo 141 effective at range and is basically an all-purpose killer across a sprawling Battle Royale map.


mp5 in cod warzone
Infinity Ward
The MP5.
  • Barrel: Monolithic Integral Suppressor
  • Stock: FTAC Collapsible
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

A classic weapon in the lineage of Call of Duty.

The MP5 is a quick, accurate, powerful killer. Its great iron sight allows for an extra attachment where it really counts, meaning you can snap to a target quicker. These lightweight settings allow you to sprint around the map and provide a quicker gathering of tools and faster looting.

Grau 5.56

The Grau 5.56.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Supressor
  • Barrel: Tempus 26.4″ Archangel
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

The Grau’s lesser recoil and damage over long-distances make it a killer companion to have.

With these attachments on the gun too, you really have yourself a versatile weapon that is effective at all ranges. Not only that, but a higher magazine and walking stability make the Grau 5.56 an extremely viable option in Warzone.

Bruen Mk9

Infinity Ward
The Bruen MK9.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Supressor
  • Barrel: XRK Summit 26.8″
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

An LMG in the best loadout guide? Surely not?

Surely yes. By reducing its magazine size and stabilizing its accuracy, it becomes a potent killer with high damage. Then you add an optic onto the top of it, and the Bruen suddenly becomes a weapon of mass destruction on the battlefield.


the kar98k in cod warzone
Infinity Ward
The Kar98k.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Supressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Sniper Scope
  • Stock: FTAC Sport Comb

One shot, one kill.

The effectiveness of the Kar98K naturally hinges on the user’s ability to wield it accurately. But if so, then it’s an unstoppable one-hit machine. As a rifle, it naturally has a slower rate of fire, but its stopping power makes up for this tenfold. Attach a long scope and decrease the ADS time, and you can spot and snap an enemy in a split-second.

Five deadly, dynamic combinations that are winning formulas in the Warzone. You shouldn’t even need to test your skills in the Gulag with one of these loadouts in your arsenal.

Hopefully you enjoyed our 5 best loadouts in Call of Duty: Warzone and may it bring you more wins.
