Best Mods For Watch Dogs 2
Watch Dogs 2 is all about player freedom as you set out to take down the criminal overlords behind ctOS 2.0, the invasive operating system that monitors and manipulates citizens on a massive scale. Now, what enhances player freedom as much as mods?
Related: Watch Dogs 2: Every Main Character, Ranked
While Watch Dogs 2 does not boast a modding community as massive as those of Skyrim or Fallout 4, it still offers a decent variety of nifty mods that might give you a refreshing new take on the sprawling open-world. Ranging from small visual enhancements to quality-of-life tweaks and large gameplay mechanic overhauls, these are the best mods for Watch Dogs 2.
Updated June 18, 2023, By John Wildermuth: Although Watch Dogs 2 may not have the most active modding scene on the market, there are still many fantastic player-made additions to the game. We have decided to update this list in an effort to showcase some of the top-notch mods that are all available for the game. With these modifications, you will be freeing San Francisco and becoming an expert hacker in little to no time.
10 No Intro
It gets tiring looking at the same splash screens every time you boot up the game. The No Intro mod functions exactly as its name suggests.
It lets you jump straight into the action, saving yourself some hassle of sitting through the splash screens and the epileptic seizure disclaimer.
For any game developers taking note, please let players have the option to skip the intro movies after the first time. Small quality-of-life features like these go a long way to ensure an enjoyable player experience.
9 Less Intrusive GPS Markers
Less Intrusive GPS Markers
If you have played even a bit of Watch Dogs 2, chances are that you are already looking for a way to get rid of the large in-your-face GPS markers on the roads. The Less Intrusive GPS Markers mod is a small quality-of-life tweak that allows you to get fully immersed into the world.
While the mod does not get rid of the GPS road markers wholly, it just hits the sweet spot between them being visible and being immersion-breaking. Now, you can actually see the texture of the roads while driving around San Francisco Bay.
8 Watch Dogs 2 Autowalker
Watch Dogs 2 Autowalker
Watch Dogs 2, much like every other open-world game, requires a lot of walking around, and it’s not a whole lot of fun mashing the W key constantly over the course of a lengthy playthrough.
Related: Best Video Game Hackers
The Autowalker mod lets you keep walking and running at the press of a hotkey, which you can customize by going into a configuration file that comes with the mod. This is an indubitably convenient feature that should be present by default in all open-world games.
7 Natural San Francisco
Natural San Francisco
Watch Dogs 2 is not an old game, especially regarding its graphical features. So you might ask, what is the need for a mod that puts more load on the GPU? While it is true that the Natural San Francisco mod is a bit taxing in terms of frame rate, if you have got the headroom to spare, this mod livens up the atmosphere of the game unlike anything else.
The orange color grading and the new skybox textures are some things that you’d think would be included with the base game. Besides, the mod also features many other smaller visual tweaks, like new fire, muzzle flash, and water FX textures.
6 Unlock All Abilities
Via YO_OY and freshminds
Unlock All Abilities
by YO_YO and freshminds
While this may not be the most extensive mod on this list, it still certainly earns its place, especially if you are returning to the game and starting a fresh playthrough. While we recommend completing the game at least once without this mod installed, you may find yourself getting annoyed with the massive amount of abilities in the game.
If you are someone who wants to have every ability at your fingertips, then this mod is the perfect choice for you because it allows you to start a fresh game with everything unlocked. While you will still have to collect crafting components and money, you’ll be prancing through every mission with your high-class abilities.
5 Wrench Mod
Wrench is arguably the most entertaining character out of all the DeadSec members of the game. If you wanted to play the game as this punk rock-looking fella, this mod lets you do just that.
Giving you a choice between four versions, the mod lets you play as Wrench with or without his iconic mask. You can also choose the version you like, depending on whether you would like to override Marcus’ voice lines with Wrench’s or keep them as is.
There are a few caveats to replacing Marcus’ voice lines which are explained in detail on the mod description page.
4 First Person Camera
First Person Camera
There’s no denying that some of us can’t be truly immersed in a game without the first-person perspective. While GTA 5, a game most often compared to when talking about Watch Dogs, implemented a first-person mode when its enhanced editions came out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, it is all but evident that there is a demand for it.
The First Person Camera mod for this game is not perfect. In fact, expect lots of janky behavior as the mod author already puts a disclaimer for those on the description page.
However, if you really want to experience the game in this new mode, you absolutely can, as none of those issues are known to cause crashes or other game-breaking bugs.
3 Enhanced Parkour
One of the core gameplay mechanics of Watchdogs is the ability to parkour across the city, thus opening new pathways for exploration and combat. While the base game parkour is certainly serviceable, the Enhanced Parkour mod makes this feature much more enjoyable.
Related: Fun Action Games With The Best Non-Lethal Options
Specifically, this mod allows Marcus to jump across farther gaps, vault more objects, chain his parkour together much easier, and climb higher walls. Overall, this is a must-have mod, since you will be using parkour during every level of Watch Dogs 2.
2 Police And Faction Overhaul
Police and Faction Overhaul
When the game came out, one of the major criticisms surrounding it was the lackluster police mechanics. The chases of the base game feel really unnatural as the police spawns are erratic.
It often becomes the case that you beat the heat without really making any real effort to evade them, and sometimes it is the opposite with a bunch of police vehicles spawning on top of you.
The Police and Faction Overhaul mod not only fixes the awkward police mechanics but also makes some thoughtful addition and changes. If you keep retaliating at the highest heat level, now FBI units will show up.
Moreover, female cops will now spawn as part of patrols as well.
1 Ultimate Overhaul Mod
Via TheDuckyOne and HeySlickThatsMe
Ultimate Overhaul Mod
by TheDuckyOne and HeySlickThatsMe
This mod is an amalgamation of many smaller mods (some of which are already on this list) carefully curated to take your Watch Dogs 2 experience to the next level. Introducing some cut content, new enemies, and an array of quality-of-life improvements, the Ultimate Overhaul Mod is something you would pick up after you have completed the main story missions.
In fact, the mod author specifically advises against installing this mod before completing them as it can “ruin the game’s pacing and glitch out certain missions.”

Anti-stress, nanny and protector How to choose the right dog?
October 19, 2022
Many want to have a pet, but not everyone understands the degree of responsibility. A dog is not only entertainment with petting and games, but also a gnawed sofa, early rises and training. The nature of the pet depends on the breed. Remember, every dog in the world has a purpose. Which breed is right for you? Let’s figure it out.
How to choose a tailed friend?
Do not choose a dog influenced by fashion
“Choosing the breed of a future dog is one of the most important decisions for a dog breeder. The further joint life of the pet and the owner will depend on this. This choice should be taken as seriously and deliberately as possible. Don’t choose a dog based on fashion or on looks alone. A competent approach to choosing a breed will help you avoid problems in the future,” says Vladimir Golubev, President of the Russian Cynological Federation.
Before choosing a puppy breed, you need to understand why you need a dog. There can be many options: for home protection, exhibitions, hunting; for long walks and communication; just for company.
Then it is worth asking a very simple question: do your housing conditions allow you to keep a dog? It is unlikely that a one-room apartment will fit, for example, a Great Dane (the height of a male reaches 90 cm) or an English mastiff (its height can be up to 76 cm at the withers).
Great Dane above, below — English Mastiff
Do you have enough financial resources to maintain it? A dog is far from a cheap pleasure: food, clothes (not for all breeds), toys, trips to the veterinarian and groomer will cost a tidy sum. This is not counting the possible expenses for travel and restoration of property (nobody has canceled damage to furniture).
You still need to walk with the dog (and you can get up even at 6 am on Sunday), train, bathe and play… and the dog’s desires will not always coincide with yours.
If all the pros and cons have been weighed, and the decision has already been made, it remains to choose the breed. So which dog is right for you?
For the elderly
Calm, sociable and domestic dogs are suitable for the elderly
Elderly people often feel very lonely. This is especially true for grandparents who have lost their other half, or those who live far from close relatives.
A dog will become a true friend for a pensioner, a salvation from loneliness and an incentive to move more (walking with a dog will help you to be outdoors more often, walk and maintain general tone).
It is clear that older people will not be able to get along with a hyperactive Husky or Labrador. Calm, sociable, miniature (medium-sized) breeds are suitable for them, here are a few of them:
- Pug is a cheerful, sociable companion. His height reaches 36 cm at the withers. Most of all they like to spend time with the owner of the house. You can devote about 30 minutes a day to walking with him. Pugs are obedient, a little lazy, get along well in an apartment, in case of danger, a true friend will come to your defense.
- Bichon Frize These little dogs love family life. They also, like pugs, love to spend time at home with their owner. But they cannot do without half-hour walks. This breed needs regular physical activity outside the home to keep fit, healthy and toned. Adult males and females are 23-28 cm tall.
- Chihuahua — they are attached to the owner, love to travel and walk with the owners. With pleasure they live a quiet home life in an apartment, they do not require long walks. The height of an adult dog reaches 23 cm.
- French Bulldog is full of life and tenderness for his loved ones. The growth of a mature dog reaches 34.5 cm. It is a reliable companion, ready to devote every minute of its time to the owner. They do not require active games and long walks — a short walk and sedentary activities are enough.
- Pekingese — suitable for people leading a measured lifestyle. The dog does not require regular physical activity. In bad weather, she is completely ready to be left without a walk and go to the toilet for a diaper. Height at the withers reaches 25 cm.
This is only a small part of those breeds that are suitable for an elderly person.
Note that it is better for pensioners to buy bitches. The fact is that they are more affectionate, calmer and more attached to people. Males are more independent, more aggressive, often tend to dominate, and they are more troublesome (often).
For families with children
Dogs can be great babysitters
The dog is a great friend and protector. It not only brings joy to family members, but also teaches children responsibility.
The smallest breeds are not always the best option for a family with a baby (due to the idiosyncratic nature of the dog), while large ones can be a good babysitter for children.
- The Golden Retriever is a gentle dog with a calm disposition. She adapts well to family life, loves outdoor activities and gets along well with children. The breed is trainable and absolutely not prone to aggression.
- The Labrador Retriever is one of the best breeds to be a family pet. Labradors are very smart, calm (do not respond to loud screams and careless touches), friendly and very active. They adore their owners, and their devotion can only be envied.
- Beagle is a medium sized dog. This breed has a pronounced hunting instinct, it is a good guard dog. The Beagle is very mobile and good-natured, loves to play and gets along well with children.
- St. Bernard (the same Beethoven from the film of the same name) — calm and friendly. This breed is distinguished by high diligence and kindness to people. Will not harm the child, even if the baby decides to ride them.
- Corgi — a dog for children. They are easy to train, kind to people, especially children, active and non-aggressive. This breed feels the human condition well and is suitable as a first pet.
Also suitable for families with children are French Bulldog, Newfoundland, Collie (or Scottish Shepherd), Spitz, Siberian Husky and so on.
Important: not all dogs will feel comfortable in a small living space. Consider the size of your apartment. If you have a small apartment, then breeds such as beagles, spitz or corgis are more suitable for living together. If a private house or a spacious apartment — Newfoundland, Husky, St. Bernard.
House guard dogs must undergo mandatory training
Large or medium athletic build, pronounced territorial instinct, tough character, developed intelligence, devotion and hunting skills. These traits should have a watchdog.
For strangers — «thunderstorm of the district», for his own — a big affectionate child. What breeds are suitable for protecting your home?
- The German Shepherd is an intelligent, disciplined, loyal and energetic dog. She is an ideal guard, easily trained breed with a balanced psyche, excellent reaction. The German Shepherd quickly becomes a true friend to its owners, loyal to other animals.
- Doberman is a service breed with first-class protective, search and guard qualities. This breed is not suitable for aviary, street maintenance due to the presence of a small fat layer, but it will perfectly protect your apartment from strangers. Needs training.
- Rottweiler is one of the best options for home and human protection. The dog is considered to be peaceful, hardy, strong, trainable, loyal, intelligent and fond of small children. This breed requires careful training, without which dogs may not see the line between protection and aggression.
- Alabai (or Central Asian Shepherd Dog) is an excellent protector, smart and loyal friend. Alabai needs space to move and realize his working qualities, otherwise his character may deteriorate and he will turn into an aggressive unpredictable animal. It is best to start an Alabai in a private house.
- Tibetan Mastiff (also called «bears») — they are energetic, loyal and attentive to their family. The Mastiff is wary of strangers and instinctively protective of his family and property. Without the permission of the owner, not a single stranger will enter the house or apartment. «Bears» are so territorial that they can take the route for a walk (if it does not change) for their territory and start guarding it.
Who else? Moscow Watchdog, Cane Corso, Boxer, Shar Pei, Komondor, Kuvasz, Chow Chow and others.
Important! Guard dogs must undergo mandatory training.

For hunting and outdoor activities
Some breeds of dogs are excellent hunting assistants
For some, dogs are not just pets, but friends and life partners. The owners of four-legged animals take them with them on hikes, fishing or hunting.
- West Siberian Laika is a hunter’s best friend and assistant, working with any kind of game. This is a smart and kind dog, boundlessly devoted to his master. In terms of catching game, it is absolutely universal (they are excellent at hunting both birds and large animals like a bear or a wild boar).
- Estonian Hound is a friendly and obedient dog. Assertive and merciless on the hunt, the Estonian hound will never show aggression towards members of his family. On the contrary, she is very friendly and loves children. This breed is used to hunt hare or fox, but they are also capable of driving larger game.
- Drathaar is a dog with strong hunting instincts. She has an excellent flair, a strong stance and a fast move when searching for game. They prefer to hunt waterfowl or hare. The family is patient with children and devoted to the owner.
- Russian Hunting Spaniel is a first-class specialist in gun hunting for game birds. The spaniel is a born tracker and earner. Representatives of the breed love to swim and are not afraid of cold water. They are suitable for keeping in an apartment, they are good with children and pets.
- Pointer — they are often called the dog of aesthetes, for whom the process of hunting is more important than the end result. This breed has a phenomenal flair and incredible diligence. They hunt mainly for birds. They are patient with children, treat other animals well, and are calm in the home.
Basset Hound, Jack Russell Terrier, Irish Setter and others also like to hunt with their owner.
Remember, hunting dogs are very mobile animals. They spend a lot of energy, so you will have to feed such breeds more often than usual (or double the portions).
Getting a dog is a responsible step
The dog is an excellent friend, anti-stress, nanny and protector.
