What are Watch Dog’s Legion’s non-lethal options?
Despite Legion’s E3 2019 demo presentation being full of guns and murder, Watch Dogs Legion will have more non-lethal options than ever before. According to Ubisoft, at least half of the game’s weapons are non-lethal. That’s a big step up from Watch Dogs 2, where your only choices were a stun gun and paintball rifle.
We got a glance at a few of those non-lethal options in Ubi’s trailers and demo. The granny infiltrator Helen took out a baddie with a stun gun, and another trailer shows what looks like a stun shotgun. What we didn’t see was the return of Marcus’ neat DIY 8 ball melee tool.
But can you complete Watch Dogs Legion without killing anyone? Similar to Watch Dogs 2, there will be moments in Legion where the game expects you to end a life. You can still use non-lethal weapons to take them down, but it’ll basically treat that scenario the same as killing them. It was a bit awkward in 2, but it at least didn’t force you to shed blood.
