Watch Dogs City Hotspots locations guide

Location “check ins” feel so 2011, but don’t tell that to Aiden Pierce and the citizens of Chicago in Watch Dogs. Given that there are 100 Hotspots in the game, the act of finding all them is the most labour-intensive quest in the game, but at least each spot reveals a historical tidbit about The Windy City.

Assuming you’re regularly infiltrating ctOS Centres and Towers, getting these Hotspots to show up on the map is easy. Yet if you’re having trouble finding the exact location of any check in, our guide is here to help in your search.

    Farris Halstead Library in North East Parker Square. Under the Criminal Convoy "Made Men". It's the ONLY hotspot that is pretty much 100% covered under other icons and not visible on the map at all even at full zoom.
