Watch Dogs Legion - how to take a picture and photograph evidence

When you're given the task to photograph evidence as part of making some boroughs defiant like the City of London, the game doesn't really tell you how to do that. If you can't access the area on foot to take a photo with the photo mode, you need an alternative method

To photograph evidence, you essentially need to reach the area with either a News Drone. Fly it inside the building and to the designated area marked on the map, then it'll prompt you to take a photo. That's all there is to it! Don't worry about flying the drone back out again because DedSec will be able to remotely download the photo you took.

You need to do this for a mission to get inside King's Cross Station, along with multiple propaganda missions, so it's handy to get yourself familiarised with the process early on. If you can't find a News Drone to hijack, try doing something out of the ordinary in the street, like punching someone or crashing a car. A News Drone should swiftly turn up and you can promptly hack it. Cheers, GBB!
