Watch Dogs Guide: How to Escape the Police at the End of Chapter One

Watch Dogs guides


Escaping the police is generally easy, especially if you can find a bridge or a train nearby. However, at the end of chapter one while escaping a high-tech prison, Aiden Pearce can’t escape using traditional methods. With the whole Chicago Police Department hunting him, he can’t simply escape. But there’s a simple trick to complete this campaign mission. It’s all about tactic and precision, find out how.

wce41. Kill the Incoming Policeman at the Prison’s Roof

Head towards the roof and kill all the policeman that will arrive in patrol cars. Take cover and use the nearby cameras to make sure that there’s no one left. There will always be a helicopter on your head too but don’t kill the shooter just yet.

wce32. Kill the Helicopter Shooter Last

Once there’s no guards in the roof, kill the sniper on the helicopter. This will make things much smoother for your escape, since the helicopter will retreat and there won’t be anything to watch your position anymore. Note that all nearby cameras are being hacked by Aiden.

wce23. Disrupt the Police’s Communications

After the helicopter retreats, trigger your jamming communication tool to ensure that any leak on your position will be disrupted. This way, even if someone spots you on the roof, they won’t be able to call for reinforcements.

wce14. Wait the Alert Bar to Get White

Stay covered and wait the red alert bar to slowly decrease until it’s white. When the bar is white, you need to wait one minute until the police assumes you have escaped and you’re no longer there.

wce55. Stay Out of Police’s Radar

But a white bar doesn’t stand for safe yet, you need to remain properly covered or hidden if you don’t want anyone to trigger the red bar again. Police cars and helicopters will still be sent to your last position so ensure you’re not spotted again.

Watch Dogs Guide: How to Defeat the Mini Boss/Elite Robotic Policeman

Watch Dogs guides


During the last campaign mission of the first chapter, players will find themselves trapped in a high-tech security prison. Right before facing the stadium survivor, who can identify Aiden Pearce’s appearance, players must defeat several corrupt prison guards with a M1014 Semi-Auto Shotgun found in the environment. Afterwards, a robotic policeman will appear and the difficulty will drastically increase. Find out how to defeat the first elite/mini boss in Watch Dogs.

wc41. Defeat the Corrupt Guards

To fight this mini boss, you have to defeat numerous corrupt guards in the first place, that’s the rule. If you die during this mission part, you’ll always have to kill them over and over again. The best way to do it is to stay covered at the main door and take them down, one by down without wasting too much ammo since you’ll need plenty of it for the incoming robot.

wc32. Position Yourself Inside the Room

Once you kill the police officers, rush inside the room and cover yourself in the middle. Wait for the robotic policeman to move towards you and observe his movements. If you hit him randomly you won’t do any damage due to his high-tech shield and metallic parts.

wc23. Aim at His Chest and Belly

The trick to take him do is to be persistent and aim at his middle body (chest and belly). However, you need to do it at the right time, when the robot is either reloading or aiming at you. Otherwise, you’ll just his his arms, hands and even his weapon. If you don’t hit him correctly he won’t take any damage and you’ll need more time to kill him.

wc14. Move Around in Circles

While waiting for the right time to hit the robot, you should move in circles, as in dancing with him. Keep yourself covered at all times, else he can easily kill you. Also, don’t let him get too close as the cover system can be tricky and you might not have enough time to move tot he next cover object.
