Welcome to the Watch Dogs Legion Trophy Guide! Watch Dogs Legion (WDL) is the third entry in the series and takes place in London. What makes it different from the previous Watch Dogs games is that you can recruit any person you see. Each person has a unique skillset. The trophy list is a good mix of everything: Complete the Story, do Side Quests, and do most of the things in the Open World. You don’t have to 100% the game for platinum, what you need is closer to 70% completion. Most time will be spent with open world activities. Nothing is missable, everything can be done on easy difficulty, and there are no online trophies. You can still do everything after the story in free roam.
Step 1: Play through Story (Any Difficulty) = 8-12 Hours
Your first step should be to beat the story. You can play on Easy. It’s highly recommended to turn off Permadeath Mode. DON’T play in Permadeath mode! Permadeath could complicate some trophies if one of your characters dies. Just play with Permadeath turned off, you can select this only one time when starting a New Game (cannot be changed later).
The reason to focus on Story first is that you get plenty of Collectibles, Tech Points (Skill Points), and Money automatically. This reduces the amount of open world collecting you need to do. However, you can feel free to mix things up and do some Open World Activities, Side Quests, and Miscellaneous Trophies as you go through the game. The full world map is accessible from the beginning.
Here are a few important notes to keep in mind:
- Don’t waste money on Weapon Skins / Vehicle Paints, except for buying the cheapest one of each for trophies. You must spend 100,000 money on clothes and after doing all other trophies (all missions, side quests, trophy-related activities) you will just barely reach 100,000. Don’t waste any money! Also don’t start spending money on Clothes until you have 100,000. This makes it easier to keep track.
- Watch out for people with the following Occupations for trophy purposes. They are random spawns, so be sure to recruit them when you see them (with a lot of luck they can even appear on the initial character selection screen): Video Game Designer (Meta-Gaming ), Someone with Paintball Gun: Artists / Street Artists / Muralists / Illustrator (Paint Me Like One of Your… ), Living Statue (You Don’t See Me! )
- All other trophy-related Characters/Skills are automatic from Story & turning all Boroughs defiant so don’t worry about the rest. Just the above 3 are random.
Step 2: Side Quests = 3-4 Hours
Some Side Quests aren’t available until after the story. To keep things simple, do them after the story. That way you can rest assured all side quests will be available to you.
The Side Quests start in your DedSec safehouse. The following people’s questlines give trophies:
- Bagley (1 Quest: Finding Bagley) – The One That Got Away
- Kaitlin (6 Quests: Out of Stock > Deal Breaker > Called 2 Account > Take it to the Bank > Say Cheese > Change of Heart) – In The Nick of Time
- Nowt (6 Quests: The Knowledge > STORMZY Fall on My Enemies > The Walk-In > Human Error > Nobody Home > Royal Treatment) – A Roof Over Your Head
- Hamish (2 Quests: Third Degree Burns > Parks and Reclamation) – England For Everyone
Refer to those trophies below for further instructions. It’s worth noting that the trophies don’t require you to finish all side quests in the game. The questlines continue for a while after getting the trophies. However, because they give good amounts of money towards the 100,000 for clothes it’s good to do them all anyway.
Step 3: Open World Completion (Turn Boroughs Defiant + Collectibles) = 15-20 Hours
Clean up your Open World Completion after the Story. The trophy-related tasks include:
- Red Icons / Borough Activities / Oppression Defiance Missions (22 Oppression Defiance Challenges to turn all Boroughs defiant)
- Tech Points (after the story you’ll need roughly 100/130 Tech Points to unlock all Skills. You can skip 30 of those.)
- Drinks (26 total, all required, combine with Darts)
- Darts (21 total, all required, Combine with Drinks)
- Paste Ups (47 total, all required)
When you go to the pubs for Drinks & Darts, be sure to look out for red safes. You get around 1000 money from each (~25,000 from pub safes in total). This helps towards the 100,000 you need to spend on clothes. Also be sure to do all Drinks / Darts / Paste Ups using the same character. Don’t do them across different characters as it can result in the trophy not unlocking properly. The best character class to play for exploration is the Construction Worker. He has a Cargo Drone that you can climb on top of and fly up to any roofs.
Step 4: Miscellaneous Trophies & Spending 100,000 ETO on Clothes = 1-5 Hours
Mop up any Miscellaneous Trophies you have left. They are all quick to do. If you watched out for the 3 random people mentioned in Step 1 you can save some time here. The other miscellaneous trophies are tied to characters you automatically get from Story & turning boroughs defiant. By now you’ll have everyone you need for trophies.
One of your last trophies will be to spend 100,000 money on clothes. After doing all other trophies you should automatically end up with 100,000. You might also still need a few Audio Logs and Relics but there are way more than you need for trophies.

Parks and Reclamation is the 2nd quest of Hamish’s questline. Once you’ve accepted a quest make sure to track it in the Missions Menu to see the waypoints on the map.
Here are the side quests of Hamish’s questline leading up to this trophy:
|A Dish Best Served Cold
Complete a Revenge Mission
Over the course of the game some of your team members will randomly get kidnapped. This unlocks a “Revenge Mission” to free them. To make people kidnap your operatives they must hate DedSec, as represented by the two red “thumbs down” on people’s profile. One way to help trigger this is by scanning random people on the street and find someone who dislikes DedSec (one red thumbs down). Use the Deep Profiler (unlockable skill) to scan for their schedule. Under their schedule you should see some people who are important to them / who they frequently socialize with, for example “meets with his brother at 8:00AM”. Track them, find their friend at the described time and kill the friend. When you kill their friend it will turn them from 1 thumbs down (dislike) to 2 thumbs down (hate) and they will be much more likely to kidnap your operatives. This takes some time and isn’t instant. Just turn a few people to hate DedSec and play some more missions. Having a large team of 20 Operatives may also help, the theory being that the more people you have on your team the more likely it is that one gets kidnapped at some point.
Once the Revenge Mission triggers you get a prompt on the screen that says “Mission Started”. It will also show up under Missions > Side Missions. These Missions stay permanently and aren’t time-sensitive. Simply track the quest from the Missions Menu and complete it.
Recruit an Operative after completing “Reporting For Duty”
|“Reporting for Duty” is one of the first few main missions after the Prologue. It’s a mission that makes you recruit a Construction Worker for story purposes. After you finished this quest, go recruit any random person to unlock this trophy.
To recruit new people:
Also, you automatically get recruits from turning boroughs defiant (by doing the Defiance Challenges marked red on the map).
Turn one borough into Defiant state
|Automatic story-related trophy, cannot be missed. Unlocks very early into the game after mission “Clarion Call” when you’ve turned Camden district defiant. See trophy “Take Back London” for further information on other districts.|
|Take Back London
Turn all the boroughs into Defiant state
|There are 8 boroughs: City of Westminster, Camden, City of London, Islington & Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Southwark, Lambeth, Nine Elms.
You turn them defiant by doing the 3-4 Oppression Defiance Challenges (Borough Activities) marked red on the map. After doing all of these in one district it unlocks a unique Borough Mission. Doing that Mission will turn the borough defiant. For all of the Defiance Challenges & Defiance Missions refer to the guide below:
|And Stay Down
Defeat a DedSec Adversary
Let one of your operatives get killed by an enemy. Your killer will become your team’s “Adversary”. Return to your place of death with any team member immediately and your killer should show the red text “Adversary” next to their health bar. Kill this enemy and the trophy will unlock. See the image below for what an Adversary looks like. Should no Adversary spawn, get some more of your operatives killed and keep returning to the place of death until an Adversary spawns.
|Every Walk of Life
Have a team of 20 Operatives with different occupations
|When you walk up to a person and hold it shows you their occupation. Recruit 20 people with different occupations. The tracking on this trophy may not work correctly and you may need to recruit more than 20 people. Make sure you select each new Recruit from the Team Menu to talk to them. This helps to make them count correctly. Also make sure they really all have different occupations. If the trophy doesn’t unlock at 20 just keep recruiting a few more people until it unlocks (when your team is full just throw someone out and recruit a new one).
How to recruit people:
Also, you automatically get recruits from turning boroughs defiant (by doing the Defiance Challenges marked red on the map). Do this first so you don’t need to play as many recruitment missions.
Recruit a Video Game Designer
Video Game Designers are found randomly in the open world. They spawn more frequently at day. Walk around town and scan everyone with to see their occupation. It’s quite random and can take a while to find one. It’s just luck.
It may also help to play as a Video Game Developer to improve their spawn rate. This isn’t 100% confirmed but it worked for some people (however, might be coincidence). So if you see a Video Game Developer, recruit them and switch to that character.
There are some spots where Video Game Designers have fixed spawns, but they won’t show up there each day. Below are two locations that can spawn them. The best method is to check those spots each in-game day at the noted times (the time of day is very important, because they move around and go to work at other times).
Possible Location #1: In the north of Lambeth, one Video Game Designer can spawn here between 7:00AM – 8:00AM (I found him here at 7:45AM but doesn’t spawn every day):
Possible Location #2: In the north of Camden, at a street corner outside King’s Cross Station, between two Underground Entrances marked on the map. Can spawn between 15:00 – 16:00 (I found him here at 15:38 but doesn’t spawn every day):
When you check both spots each in-game day (ideally also playing as a Video Game Developer) you should get lucky eventually, or just go around town scanning everyone you see at daytime until you get lucky.
With some luck you might even get a Video Game Designer on the initial character selection screen after the Prologue so watch out when selecting your first character.
|Down To The Wire
Perform 5 stealth takedowns with a Professional Hitman
This requires someone with the job “Professional Hitman”. The easiest method is to turn the borough “Nine Elms” defiant (do the 3 red borough activities). It will always give you a Professional Hitman. Now head to a restricted (red) area that has Albion enemies. Sneak up to them from behind and do a melee stealth takedown. What makes this unique is that the Hitman uses a wire to choke out enemies which other agents don’t have.
|Death From Above
Kill 5 Albion guards using Dive Bomb
People with the job “Drone Expert” have the “Dive Bomb” skill. The easiest method is to turn the borough of “Lambeth” defiant (do the 3 red borough activities). It will always give you a recruit with the Dive Bomb skill. Select the Dive Bomb skill from the item wheel and press to use it against enemies of the Albion faction. Either go to a restricted (red) area that has Albion enemies, or simply start a police chase and defeat policemen with it.
|NO NOT THE BEES
Neutralize 10 Albion guards using Bee Swarms
People with the job “Beekeeper” have the “Bee Swarm” skill. The easiest method is to turn the borough “City of London” defiant (do the 3 red borough activities). It will always give you a recruit with the Bee Swarm skill. Select the Bee Swarm skill from the item wheel, hold to aim at up to 3 enemies and release the button to release the bees. Some of the tougher enemies it won’t kill right away but you can weaken them up beforehand. Just kill 10 enemies of the Albion faction with this skill. Either go to a restricted (red) area that has Albion enemies, or simply start a police chase and defeat policemen with it.
|Hack The Planet
Propagate a hack across 8 targets at once
People with the job “Hacker” have the “Viral Hacking” skill that makes this trophy possible. You automatically unlock a Hacker after main mission “Clarion Call”. It’s one of the first main missions, very early in the game (the one that makes you liberate the borough of Camden). Select that Hacker from your team.
Method 1: At daytime head to Trafalgar Square in the City of Westminster (see location screenshot below). There are almost always 8+ protesters standing close together at the stairs in the middle of Trafalgar Square. Of course any other group of 8+ people who are walking close together on the sidewalk will do too. Now hold down (keep holding it) and then hold (keep holding + at the same time). This will do a “Distraction”. Because your Hacker has the Viral Hacking skill it will spread to everyone nearby and not just one person! If it spreads to 8 people you get the trophy. Just make sure you hold the buttons and don’t just tap them. Tapping them just quickly will only impact one person. Holding the buttons will trigger the Viral Hacking skill so it affects everyone. That’s what unlocks the trophy.
Method 2: An alternative strategy is to hack 8 cars simultaneously. The only trouble is that stolen cars will self-drive away after a short time. One method would be to build a traffic jam (block the street) to get enough cars close together. But an even easier method is to go to the parking lot behind Buckingham Palace (south-west of Westminster). There are always 8+ cars parked there. Just park 8 of them close together, they won’t self-drive away because they were in parking mode. Hold and then hold one of the displayed buttons (e.g. ) to make all cars drive at the same time. If you don’t get enough people to spawn this is a good alternative. You could even drive cars into a restricted area with a gate and park them there (open/close the gate), this way they can’t self-drive away.
|Shaken Not Stirred
Disable weapons of 5 Albion guards at once using the Spy Watch Gadget
People with the job “Spy” have the “Spy Watch” skill. The easiest method is to turn the borough of “City of Westminster” defiant (do the 3 red borough activities). It will always give you a recruit with the Spy Watch skill. Select the Spy from your team and start a police chase. A good place to do this is at the pub outside your DedSec safehouse. Just bring up the wanted level and wait for a lot of police to arrive. You can hide inside the pub for cover. When a lot of police have arrived and are close together outside the pub you select the Spy Watch from the item wheel and press to use it. If enough police are close enough to you it will unlock the trophy. If you don’t get it first try, just raise the wanted level some more and wait for the Spy Watch to cool down. You can use it again after a short period.
|Power To The People
Have your followers neutralize a total of 3 Albion guards
People with the job “Football Hooligan” have the “Rally Cry” skill. The easiest method is to turn the borough of “Islington & Hackney” defiant (do the 3 red borough activities). It will always give you a recruit with the Rally Cry skill. Select the Football Hooligan from your team and go to a restricted (red) area that has Albion enemies. Before entering the restricted area, open your item wheel and select the Rally Cry ability (you can’t spawn them while inside the restricted area). It will spawn 3 Hooligans who will follow you. Just walk up to some Albion enemies and let your followers defeat them. An easy trick is to distract an enemy by pressing on them, this allows your followers to do an instant takedown. You can also weaken up the enemies yourself by punching them a few times. Avoid firing your weapon, doing so would make your followers run away! If any gunfire breaks out they will run off, so avoid that. The counting for this trophy may be a bit off or it doesn’t count every Albion enemy as “Albion guards”. It took me quite a bit more than 3 to unlock the trophy. I did it at the restricted area “Royal Courts of Justice” in City of Westminster, but any restricted area that shows Uniformed Access for Albion should do.
|Paint Me Like One of Your…
Stun Clan Kelley members 5 times with paintball gun headshots
For this trophy you need to recruit someone with the occupations Street Artist / Artist / Illustrator / Muralist. Those people have a paintball gun in their inventory. Just walk around holding until you find one of them. They are random spawns so it takes some luck and patience.
Once you have recruited a character with a paintball gun, go to one of the red outlined areas in Islington & Hackney. Those areas are all occupied by Clan Kelley members (it also says “Unformed Access For: Clan Kelley” when scrolling over those red areas). Shoot them in the head using the paintball gun, 5 times total.
The below area has a good chance of spawning Street Artists (seen at night from 23:00 – 5:00 spraying graffiti at walls) and Artists (walking around randomly). But they can also spawn anywhere else.
|Throw The Book At Them
Perform 5 arrest takedowns
For this you need an Albion Contractor or a Policeman that has the “Handcuffs” in their item wheel. The easiest method to recruit one of them is to finish Main Mission “Inside Albion”. This Story Mission (first Albion Chapter) forces you to recruit an Albion Contractor automatically. That one should have the Handcuffs skill in the item wheel.
In case you want to do it earlier, or if for some reason your story-related Albion Guard doesn’t have Handcuffs, you can recruit one in the open world (they drive around in police cars but are also found at hostile areas outlined in red on the map). Hold to view the Albion Contractor / Policeman and to save to Recruits. In order to start the recruitment you must have the “Deep Profiler” upgrade from the Tech Menu. Then you can scroll over the Policeman in the Team Menu and press to scan him for clues to unlock his recruitment mission. Because Policeman and Albion Contractors dislike DedSec they cannot be recruited right away, so you must have the Deep Profiler to unlock their Recruitment Clues (same process used to get “The Royal Tour” trophy).
Once you have a Policeman with Handcuffs skill, toggle on the Handcuffs from the item wheel and walk up to people from behind. You’ll see a button prompt to arrest them. It doesn’t work when walking up to them from the front.
|The Royal Tour
Enter Buckingham Palace’s restricted area disguised as a Royal Guard
Step 1: Buy the Deep Profiler upgrade from the Tech Menu (costs 25 Tech Points).
Step 2: Go to Buckingham Palace in the west “City of Westminster” borough. Scan the Royal Guards (red coats) in the restricted area of the Buckingham Palace and save them to recruits.
Step 3: In Team Menu use Deep Profiler on the Royal Guard (press on him).
Step 4: This will bring up a menu with clues for Recruitment Leads. Select one of the Recruitment Leads. This will automatically mark it on the map via a blue magnifying glass icon.
Step 5: Complete the Recruitment Lead. It’s usually just a quick hack of someone’s phone or getting / deleting some other type of data by hacking it. After doing this it will show “Recruitment Mission Started” on the screen.
Step 6: Complete the Recruitment Mission for the Royal Guard. You can either scroll over him in the Team Menu and press to view the mission, or find it in the Mission Menu. Make sure you actively track it to get the golden quest marker for it on the map. After completing this mission the Royal Guard will join your team and becomes a playable character. Simply select him from the Team Menu.
Step 7: Return to Buckingham Palace in City of Westminster and walk into the restricted (red) area while playing as the Royal Guard.
|You Don’t See Me!
Escape a Pursuit Level 5 doing a Statue Emote
For this trophy you need to recruit someone with the occupation Living Statue. They spawn most regularly during day (between 10:00 – 16:00) at popular tourist areas and along marina promenades. While it’s random where exactly they spawn, there are some areas that have a better chance to spawn them:
Possible Spawn #1: Millenium Wheel (big Ferris Wheel), between 10:00 – 16:00.
Possible Spawn #2: At the Marina Walk at the western border of Lambeth (the harbor area promenade along the water). They tend to spawn quite frequently here between 10:00 – 16:00.
Just keep checking these areas each in-game day until one of those guys spawns. They spawn somewhere else each day. Remember it has to be daytime, 10:00 – 16:00. They don’t spawn after 16:00 because that’s when their work shift ends (as seen when you analyze them).
After recruiting a Statue Man, select him from the Team Menu, cause some havoc to rack up a 5 star police chase, then use the Statue Emote to lose the police.
|Could’ve Made National
Complete Kick up challenge intermediate 1
First you must go to one of the Kick-Up Locations (marked by a blue football icon). See the 2 screenshots below for a Kick-Up Location in the south-east of City of London borough.
You must complete the 6 beginner rounds and then the first intermediate round. Kick-Up is a QTE minigame in which you must press the buttons that are shown on-screen. Delay the button press until it’s in the green or purple zone (you will see a circle around the button – press when it’s in the green/purple part for more points).
Complete a Darts game in every Darts location
|» Watch Dogs Legion – All Darts Locations|
|Piece de Resistance

|» Watch Dogs Legion – All Drink Locations|
Complete 20 Parcel Fox Delivery Missions
|Parcel Fox Delivery Missions are marked on the map by a blue fox icon . They get marked automatically as you unfog the map.
These are very simple parcel deliveries where you drive a package from Point A to Point B. There’s an infinite amount of them as they keep respawning forever and never run out.
There are 3 types: Timed (Delivery can time out) / Fragile (parcel destroyed if it takes too much damage) / Contraband (parcel attracts police attention). Just get a really fast sports car before starting the delivery to save time. Each time you interact with the delivery box the deliveries change, so if you don’t like what you get just interact with the delivery box a few times in a row.
|All About Aesthetic
Buy a Weapon Skin
Open the Team Menu > Press “Edit” on any character > scroll over any weapon and press “Edit” > press “Skins” > press to purchase any skin. Pick the cheapest one, you’ll need to spend 100,000 money on clothes for “Fresh Threads” so don’t waste anything on expensive skins.
|Re-Wrap My Whip
Buy a Vehicle Paint
First you must recruit someone who has their own vehicle. Don’t worry about this, you will automatically get a few people with cars while liberating all boroughs.
Now open the Team Menu > Press “Edit” on any character > scroll over any car and press “Edit” > press “Change Paint Job” > press to purchase any skin. Pick the cheapest one, you’ll need to spend 100,000 money on clothes for “Fresh Threads” so don’t waste anything on expensive paint.
Spend 100 000 ETO on Clothes in shops
|Shops are marked by blue icons on the map. They get marked automatically as you unfog the map. ETO is the currency in Watch Dogs Legion.
100,000 ETO is actually quite a lot. You should get to 100,000 by doing all other trophies. It’s highly recommended you don’t spend any money until you have 100,000 total. This makes it easier to keep track. It’s best you spend 100,000 in one go using the same character. Some trophies have tracking issues when doing them across different characters so don’t take any risks. Also don’t spend excessive amounts on Weapon Skins or Car Paints! When spending money on Clothes it also counts accessories such as Hats, Glasses, Facewear, Bags.
You get around 35,000 from the Story. Roughly 30,000 comes from Side Quests. While working on all Drinks & Darts Games for trophies “Bottom’s Up” & “Bullseye” you will visit 25 pubs. They have red safes which contain around 1,000 each, so that’s another 25,000 or so. This brings us to 90,000. For the rest, you can collect the ETO Collectibles marked on the map by gray icons (must fully zoom in map). These automatically get marked as you unfog the map. You can also find more red safes in most of the hostile areas (outlined in red on the map).
Another trick is to play as a Hacker (you get one automatically during story). Hackers have the Viral Hacking perk. Walk around town and use Viral Hacking on people. Hold and hold simultaneously. By holding the buttons while having the Viral Hacking perk it will hack everyone near you and not just one person! This drains some ETO from their bank account into yours. If you have enough people around you, it can yield around 60 ETO every few seconds. This is a repeatable method that allows you to get as much money as you want. But doing this alone would take up a lot of time, hence you should do all other trophies first to get enough money.
Here’s another easy AFK Method: Get someone with the Living Statue emote (see trophy “You Don’t See Me!”), park an Ambulance (or other tall vehicle where people can’t push you), climb on it and use the Living Statue emote in a place where lots of people are walking by. You get 5 ETO for everyone who walks by. The reason to stand on top of a tall vehicle is that pedestrians will sometimes push you (because they don’t like DedSec or randomly walk into you), which would break up the Living Statue emote. By standing on a vehicle they can’t reach you so you can use the Emote infinitely. I got around 2000 ETO per hour doing this. You can just leave on your console overnight, get 8 hours of a good night’s rest and wake up with 16,000 ETO more than you had before.
Note: It is recommended to make a manual backup before spending all your money. PS4 Settings > Application Saved Data Management > Copy to USB or PS Plus. Just in case the trophy doesn’t unlock for some reason this gives you a way to copy back your save (thus restoring your money).
Unlock all Upgrades
|Upgrades can be unlocked in the “Tech” Menu. You must buy all upgrades for all the skills listed there (all 3 upgrades for all 24 skills). This includes all Gadgets, Upgrades, Weapons.
To buy upgrades you need Skill Points. You need a little over 1300 Skill Points for all upgrades. There are 130 Tech Points in the Open World, each gives you 10 Skill Points. That’s 1300 Skill Points total. But you also get 300 Skill Points automatically from the Story (unmissable rewards).
The best method is to play through the story first. This allows you to skip 30 Tech Point Locations in the open world, so if you get stuck on one you can move on to the next (roughly 100/130 are needed). The Tech Point Locations get marked on your map after turning the boroughs defiant. See trophy “Take Back London” on how to turn them all defiant.
Some of the Tech Points can be tricky to reach. Check out the full guide below for all their locations & solutions:
|Locked And Loaded
Purchase all the upgrades for every weapon
|You unlock this automatically while working on “Fully Kitted”. For this trophy you only need the weapon related upgrades (LT 68P DedSec Pistol, MP9 DedSec SMG, LTL SG, DedSec Grenade Launcher).|
Collect 50 Audio Logs
|You get around 35 Audio Logs automatically from the Story & Side Quests (automatic rewards). The rest you can find in the open world. There are many more than you need for this trophy. Only 50 are needed and it counts the ones from Story & Side Quests, too.
On the world map they get marked by a gray speaker icon (must fully zoom in on map). They get marked automatically as you unfog the map. You can keep track of how many you’ve found via the Data Menu.
Simply get the 35+ from Story & Side Quests, then keep collecting them in the open world until the trophy pops. Since they all get marked automatically just by uncovering the map they are easy to locate.
*This trophy was bugged for some players prior to patch 1.05 but has reportedly been fixed with patch 1.05.
Collect 15 Relics
|You get 12 Relics automatically from the Story (mandatory to advance the Story, cannot be missed). After the story simply get another 3 Relics in the open world. It only counts “full Relics” and not single Relic Pieces. Some Relics consists of 4-5 pieces that form 1 full Relic. Only those full Relics counts towards the trophy.
On the world map they get marked by a gray chest icon (must fully zoom in on map). They get marked automatically as you unfog the map.
Since they all get marked automatically just by uncovering the map they are very easy to locate.
Here are 3 one-piece Relics that you can quickly grab after the story to pop the trophy:
Relic Location #1 – inside DedSec Safehouse
Relic Location #2 – use Spiderbot on a rooftop to crawl through some vents (fly up there using Cargo Drone)
Relic Location #3 – easily accessible in a back alley, just climb over the fence
