There are three classes for DedSec agents
Ubisoft art director Josh Cook and lead game designer Mathieu Berube played through about 30 minutes of Watch Dogs Legion at E3, as you can see in the video below, posted by UbiCentral. The video shows off the three classes for DedSec recruits, which we’ve included details on below.
After recruiting a new citizen to join DedSec, you can assign them one of three classes: Enforcer, Infiltrator, and Hacker. They can all perform the same basic combat and stealth, though as we saw with grandma Helen, physical attributes can effect their combat capability. As for what separates each class, it mostly comes down to extra perks:
Enforcers are the combat-focused class. They can equip explosive rounds on their weapons and plant sticky mines.
Infiltrators are the hands-on stealthy type. They excel at general sneakiness, have more melee options, and come with an especially useful ability. They can activate an “AR cloak” that essentially renders you invisible to guards for a short time. Ubisoft is explaining this bit of witchcraft by tapping into the neural implants that all London citizens have. You’re hacking people’s eyes, which isn’t terrifying at all.
We see four perks available for the Infiltrator class in the gameplay demo above (more will be available in the full game, we’re told): Lunge, which gives you an increased takedown radius, All-Seeing lets them tag nearby hostiles, Shockwave staggers enemies, and First Strike adds a suppressor to SMG weapons.
Hackers are also stealthy, but prefer to let drones do the sneaking for them. They have access to the spider drone (highlighted heavily in E3 footage) that combines the low profile of Watch Dogs 2’s drones with a mounted turret that lets it fight back. It can even perform melee takedowns.
In some ways, the three classes divvy up the abilities that Aiden and Marcus from previous Watch Dogs games used to have all on their own. This will no-doubt give every DedSec member more of a unique identity and encourage players to try out different play styles.
