Watch Dogs 2 Guide: Where to Find All Hidden Gnomes

By | 4 weeks ago 

Like most open world games these days, Watch Dogs 2 is packed full of fun things to discover and collect. We’ve already detailed a few of those items, like the Ubisoft Easter Egg trailer that is apparently for an actual game, but there are other collectibles in Watch Dogs 2 that more directly influence the experience.

For example, there are 10 collectible gnomes hidden throughout Ubisoft’s open world hacking title for players to find. However, getting all 10 of the hidden gnomes is easier said than done, as Ubisoft has tucked a few in some clever places.

Granted, some are hard to miss since they are set up in funny scenes, like a gnome hot tub party, but others are a little less obvious. Some players may not even realize there are gnomes to collect.

Thankfully, the folks at Wiki Game Guides have put together both a video walkthrough and a helpful map detailing where to the find the hidden gnomes in Watch Dogs 2. Click the image below to view the video or try to find the specific hidden gnome locations for yourself using the map.

Those who do collect all of the hidden gnomes in Watch Dogs 2 will unlock a gnome outfit that is very goofy. Whereas the gnomes were all focused on hiding, this outfit will help the player, as new protagonist Marcus, stand out like a sore thumb. It even gives him a bandana that mimics the creepy smile of the porcelain lawn decorations.

Thankfully, the game doesn’t seem to differentiate between outfits when in stealth mode. And if players are detected they have plenty of cool new gadgets with which to get out of trouble.

It’s been somewhat of a rough start for Watch Dogs 2, at least on the multiplayer front. Reviews for the game have been mostly positive, but most of those reviews have shied away from talking about the online multiplayer just yet. That’s because the “seamless multiplayer” is still broken and is causing numerous problems for players. Thankfully Ubisoft had the foresight to shut down the multiplayer, rather than let another major title release to the world with significant problems.

That being said, Watch Dogs 2 still has a lot of potential and is tracking very high among gamers. Without Assassin’s Creed this year, Ubisoft is betting big on Watch Dogs to make a dent in the fall and thanks to collectibles like the hidden gnomes the studio may keep players invested for quite some time.

Watch Dogs 2 is out now for PS4 and Xbox One. The PC version releases on November 29, 2016.
