One of the best features in Watch Dogs Legion is the game’s photo mode. This option allows you to take everything from selfies to quest-specific photos, so find out how you can utilize the camera as you journey across London.

Players can freely take photos of anything they wish in Watch Dogs Legion, but there are a number of quests that require you to gather evidence of Albion’s activity. This is where Watch Dogs Legion’s camera comes into play, as you’ll need to acquire these photos to help liberate London’s boroughs. 

As a result, learning to use the game’s camera is incredibly important. To help you successfully free each borough and claim the rewards, we’ve put together a guide that explains how to use the camera and how you can photograph evidence in Watch Dogs Legion.

Sometimes you’ll need to provide photographic evidence of Albion activities.

Before you can begin snapping away, you’ll first need to gain entry to your target location. These enemy-controlled areas will invariably require you to hack security terminals in order to bypass the guards, so make sure to take a stealthy approach if you wish to avoid any bloodshed.

You can photograph evidence by following the instructions below:

  1. Walk over to the evidence marker (camera icon).
  2. Pull out your camera by pressing 9 on PC or by holding X to bring up the item wheel. Xbox and PS4 users can pull up the equipment wheel by holding Right on the D-Pad and select the camera option with X/Square. 
  3. Begin taking photos of the evidence.

Even the world’s best hackers need a selfie break every now and then.

Like most new open-world games, Watch Dogs Legion enables you to take photos of your character and the world around them. It may not be a critical feature that is needed to complete the game’s missions, but it is a great way to show off your well-earned cosmetic items. 

To access Watch Dogs Legions photo mode, simply do the following:

  1. Hit Right on the D-Pad to bring up the Operative’s ability to wheel. PC users can either hold down X to access the equipment wheel or press F2 on their keyboard to instantly take the camera out.
  2. Select the photo mode option from the equipment wheel.
  3. Begin taking photos.

Unlike the basic camera used for capturing Albion evidence, Watch Dogs Legion’s photo mode gives you access to a lot more options and features. You can take selfies and equip various filters, so make sure you experiment with these features when taking the perfect photo.

Now that you know how to use Watch Dogs Legion’s camera, you’ll be able to capture some truly breathtaking photos.

Bizarre Black Ops Cold War bug gives players free killstreaks

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has officially dropped and millions of players are getting to grips with it, working out the new maps and weapons and theorizing how certain aspects could fit into Warzone when the game becomes fully integrated.

One thing that has seen a massive overhaul, though, is the scorestreaks system. Rather than having to go on a long streak of kills to earn your rewards, scorestreaks now continue to build up through lives.

The jury is still out on what the general perception is of such a drastic change, but for now, there may be bigger issues regarding streaks that need to be addressed.

While it seems to be in isolated cases, Black Ops Cold War might be randomly giving players free scorestreaks without even earning them.

Streaks have been an integral part of Call of Duty games for years.

As you can see below in this clip from CoD streamer DiamondRyce, he gets killed while playing on Satellite, and is greeted with a very special gift upon respawning.

In a match where he and his teammates are being somewhat dominated, the announcer says that there’s a hostile Attack Helicopter entering the map before respawning and getting points for destroying a chopper.

Not only that, but he then starts earning Attack Helicopter kills despite having definitely not called one in, and the symbol on the side of the screen is even highlighted to suggest he earned it.

Obviously, Ryce was just as confused as the enemy likely was, watching their high-end scorestreak go rogue and turn on themself and their team, but he likely won’t complain at the free kills.

The bigger question now is, how did this happen? Did DiamondRyce accidentally find a legitimate exploit that lets you steal enemy streaks, or is it a pure accident that can’t be forced and recreated?

Either way, it’s something Treyarch will be looking at and trying to fix in the coming updates, so hopefully it’s sorted sooner rather than later.
