These mods will help you get more out of Watch Dogs 2.
Watch Dogs 2 is all about player freedom as you try to take down the criminal bosses behind ctOS 2.0, the invasive operating system that tracks and controls citizens on a large scale. Now, what else gives players as much freedom as mods?
Even though Watch Dogs 2 doesn’t have as big of a hacking community as Skyrim or Fallout 4, it still has a good number of cool mods that might give you a new way to look at the huge open world. These are the best mods for Watch Dogs 2, which range from small visual improvements to big changes to the way the game works.
Every time you start up the game, you have to see the same splash scenes. The No Intro mod does what its name says it does.
It lets you jump right into the action, so you don’t have to waste time watching the splash screen and the warning about epileptic seizures.
If you make video games and are reading this, please let players skip the intro scenes after the first time. Small improvements like these go a long way toward making sure players have a good time.
Less Intrusive GPS Markers
If you’ve played Watch Dogs 2 even a little bit, you’re probably already looking for a way to get rid of the big GPS marks on the roads. The Less Intrusive GPS Markers mod is a small change that improves the game’s quality of life and lets you get more into the world.
Even though the mod doesn’t completely get rid of the GPS road signs, it does just enough to keep them from being too distracting. Now, when you drive around San Francisco Bay, you can actually see the surface of the roads.
Watch Dogs 2 Autowalker
Like every other open-world game, Watch Dogs 2 takes a lot of walking, and it’s not very fun to keep pressing the W key over and over again for a long time.
With the Autowalker mod, you can keep walking and running by pressing a hotkey. You can change the hotkey by editing a setup file that comes with the mod. This is a very useful tool that should be built into all open-world games by default.
Natural San Francisco
Watch Dogs 2 is not an old game, especially when it comes to how it looks. So, you might ask, what’s the point of a mod that makes the GPU work harder? Even though the Natural San Francisco hack puts a bit of a strain on the frame rate, if you have the extra space, this mod makes the game feel more alive than anything else.
You might think that the orange color grading and the new skybox images would be part of the base game. The mod also has a lot of smaller changes to how things look, such as new fire, muzzle flash, and water FX graphics.
Unlock All Abilities
Even though this isn’t the biggest mod on this list, it deserves to be there, especially if you’re coming back to the game and starting over. Even though we suggest that you finish the game at least once without this mod, you may find that the game’s many abilities start to bother you.
If you want to be able to do everything, this mod is great for you because it lets you start a new game with everything unlocked. Even though you’ll still have to gather crafting materials and money, your high-class skills will let you run through every task.
Wrench is one of the most interesting characters in DeadSec. With this mod, you can play the game as this guy who looks like he’s into punk rock.
The mod lets you play as Wrench in four different ways, with or without his famous mask. You can also choose which version you want based on whether you want to replace Marcus’ voice lines with Wrench’s or leave them as they are.
There are a few things to keep in mind when changing Marcus’ voice lines, which are explained in detail on the mod page.
First Person Camera
Some of us can’t really get into a game unless we can see it from the first-person point of view. Most people who talk about Watch Dogs compare it to GTA 5, which has a first-person mode in its enhanced editions for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. This shows that there is a market for first-person games.
This game’s First Person Camera fix isn’t perfect. In fact, the mod author warns that there will be a lot of strange behavior on the page about the hack.
But if you really want to play the game in this new mode, you can, since none of these problems are known to cause crashes or other bugs that ruin the game.
One of the most important ways to play Watchdogs is to run across the city, which opens up new ways to explore and fight. Even though the parkour in the base game works, the Enhanced Parkour mod makes it much more fun to use.
In particular, this mod lets Marcus jump over bigger gaps, vault over more things, link his parkour moves together much more easily, and climb higher walls. Overall, this is a must-have mod because you will use parkour in every level of Watch Dogs 2.
Police And Faction Overhaul
When Drive Mad came out, one of the main things people didn’t like about it was how the cops worked. The chases in the base game feel very strange because the cops show up at random.
A lot of the time, you can get away from the police without really trying, and sometimes the opposite happens and a bunch of police cars show up on top of you.
The Police and Faction Overhaul hack not only fixes the weird way the police work, but it also adds and changes things in a smart way. If you keep fighting back at the highest amount of heat, now FBI units will come.
Also, now both male and female cops will show up on rounds.
Ultimate Overhaul Mod
This mod is a collection of many smaller mods, some of which are already on this list. It was put together with care to help you get the most out of Watch Dogs 2. The Ultimate Overhaul Mod is something you would get after you have finished the main story missions. It adds some content that was cut from the game, new enemies, and a number of quality-of-life changes.
In fact, the mod author says that you shouldn’t install this mod until you’ve finished them, because it can “break the game’s flow and make some missions impossible to finish.”
