If you’re looking to get around the Watch Dogs Legion map as John Wick, the Hitman operative is certainly going to be one you should unlock pronto. Here, we’ll show you how to do it in Ubisoft’s new hacking title. 

The game launched on October 29 and right off the bat players couldn’t believe how accurately the city of London looked. Whether it was the big red double-decker buses riding around, Buckingham Palace, or Stormzy ‘wanted’ posters – the community seem taken back by what they’re seeing so far.

Well, that’s not all they have to scream and shout about. One of the game’s operatives is called Hitman and has many of the character traits to that of John Wick, a character added to Fortnite in the past with an identical likeness.

While we don’t quite have that in Watch Dogs 3, we do have something just as exciting. Let’s take a look at how to unlock Hitman.

The Hitman character comes with an insane pistol and assault rifle combination (Desert Eagle and G36), on the weapons front, but also a lot of vintage John Wick-style takedowns that people will enjoy.

It also auto reloads during combat rolls and has extra faction damage, which sets this operative right at the very top of the game in terms of standings. To get him, follow these simple steps:

  1. Load into Watch Dogs Legion. 
  2. Head over to Night Elms on the map.
  3. Take on the Neutralize VIP mission.
  4. Use your cargo drone to destroy an enemy drone, photograph evidence.
  5. Take control of your spider gadget and hack a computer to get a key card.
  6. Take down the Albion Contractor at the end of the mission, and take over Night Elms.

Once this mission is complete you will see the celebratory screen above, and will have unlocked the professional Hitman operative – ready to be played with.

So, there we have it! That’s how you can get the Watch Dogs Legion John Wick-esque character. For more guides and Watch Dogs 3 news, stick with us at Dexerto, as this guide should have made things a whole lot easier for you.

Riot dev responds to broken League damage bug with Ravenous Hydra

A Riot Games developer has responded to a bizarre bug in League of Legends, which is preventing the Ravenous Hydra from working with certain champions’ abilities in-game.

Riot Games introduced plenty of changes in the 2021 preseason patch such as completely revamping the League Item Shop and items to improve the game’s experience before Season 11 kicks off.

Ravenous Hydra is one of the items that has remained in League, but it received some updated stats amid the changes. The item still provides players with lifesteal, in the form of Omnivamp, but Riot has now removed the Crescent Active and added 20 Ability Haste in its place.

However, one thing that has not changed much is the item’s passive ability Cleave, which allows basic attacks and abilities to trigger extra damage, which varies based on the distance between targets.

Urgot's splash artLeague players called for a Ravenous Hydra fix after a glitch was found with champions like Urgot.

There are some champions with abilities that had unique interactions with this item, such as Aphelios’ Severum Q, but players have now noticed a bug, which stops it from working correctly with certain champions.

The issue was raised with League dev Riot Phlox, with one Redditor explaining that champions with multi-hit abilities, like Urgots W, Renekton W, and Warwick’s Ult seem to be where the problem lies.

Riot Phlox responded to the bug, revealing that they are now aware of the unusual damage glitch with Ravenous Hydra and that it would be passed on to the League Dev team.

“I’ll pass this along so we can make sure there are eyes on it, thanks!” the League dev responded, confirming they would soon be working on it.

However, he also revealed that he was unsure just when a fix might be issued for this broken damage bug, adding that they “can’t give a timeframe.”

While it is unclear when the patch will arrive in League of Legends, this will still come as good news to Urgot mains, and those who play similar champs, after they were quite vocal on this issue, as it will soon allow them to have more build options in-game.
