Watch Dogs 2 Walkthrough and Guide

Tinkering

 


[Gadget Mastery] This skill tree focuses on improvements to your ESD (Electro Shock Device) and explosives.

Electro Shock Device (G)
These thrown devices can deliver non-lethal shock to individuals but armored targets will be able to resist the initial blast and succumb to a second ESD blast. ESDs have a relatively good blast radius, capable of knocking out several people at once if they’re within range. ESDs can be triggered remotely, activated to become proximity mines, create a sound to attract nearby guards, and temporarily shut it down. Used ESDs replenish over time but un-detonated ones will still count to the limit and won’t be replenished. Unused ESDs can be picked up as well.

Like the stun gun, ESDs are quiet which is perfect for stealthy infiltrations. However, like the stun gun, stunned targets will wake up on their own after a while or can be awaken by their allies who will stumble upon them. Though non-lethal, ESDs create a blast powerful enough to destroy light objects like wood planks, metal fences, plywood, even pop vehicle tires without making the vehicle itself explode. They can be used to detonate explosive containers as well. This should be taken into consideration since some objects and items of interest are hidden behind planks.

To use ESDs, you must select it from your weapon wheel by pressing and holding the UP D-PAD button, press R1 to throw it, then press L1 to detonate it remotely. While targeting your ESD, press and hold L1 to see more options.

Press L1 and R1 simultaneously to detonate all deployed ESDs


Explosive Device (A)
This lethal version of ESD creates a powerful explosion that can kill multiple targets within the blast radius, instantly take out un-armored vehicles (along with its passengers), also cause an explosive chain reaction when detonated near explosive containers and vehicles. While this can take out targets permanently, it does create a commotion and will alert nearby hostiles to conduct a search and investigation. That said, this is not recommended for stealthy approaches, unless you can deploy this using your drones and while you’re either outside the restricted area or well-hidden.

To use explosives, you must select it from your weapon wheel by pressing and holding the UP D-PAD button, press R1 to throw it, then press L1 to detonate it remotely. While targeting your ESD, press and hold L1 to see more options.

Press L1 and R1 simultaneously to detonate all deployed explosives.
