Watch Dogs 2: How to Start and Complete the Secret Gnome Mission

Gnome Mission – Watch Dogs 2

There’s a secret mission hidden away in Watch Dogs 2 that only those who check every nook and cranny of the game’s world will discover. Hidden beneath a random, unmarked restaurant is a gnome with a computer and interacting with it will send you on a quest to collect the green-hatted gnomes scattered throughout the city. You’ll have to search high and low to find them all but once you do, you get a neat little reward.

To start the quest, you’re going to want to head to the area I’ve marked on the map below:

Under the round building you’ll find a gnome with a laptop. You’ll need to use your Jumper to drive into a space under the small staircase leading up to the restaurant. You’ll also find a Skill Point here. Maneuver your Jumper to face the laptop and you’ll get a prompt to interact by holding Triangle/Y. This will trigger a weird notification on the upper left-hand corner of your screen.

It’s an equation that says Gnome x ?? = Gnome. While it doesn’t look like it makes much sense, it’s actually telling you to collect the ten hidden gnomes scattered around the world (which we’ve guided for you here). Once you have all 10, you’ll have to head to one more secret location to actually complete the Gnome Mission.

Head to the point on the map marked below:

In this exact spot is a tent with another laptop-using gnome. You can only interact with it if you’ve successfully collected all of the required items. If it doesn’t trigger you must have forgotten to pick one up so retrace your steps. Thankfully, you can fast travel around, so it shouldn’t be too much of a headache to get anything done.

We recommend upgrading your Jumper with the Enhanced Spring ability, so you can navigate much easier.

Have fun on your hunt!
