A lot of the Pawnee Militia run security for Blume. And a lot of them live in that pit of paranoia.
―Raymond "T-Bone" Kenney

"A Pit of Paranoia" is the 32nd storyline mission in Watch Dogs, and the second mission of Act III.


After Aiden takes back T-Bone's truck, and shows he is trustworthy, T-Bone gives him the mission to delete him from CTOS. For that, Aiden has to infilrate Blume HQ. T-Bone says that he can get to the Blume Security chiefs by tailing a helicopter. Aiden tracks the helicopter and finds the helicopter hovers over the Pawnee Trailer Park. Aiden hacks the cameras and profiles the two security chiefs. Aiden takes them down, steals their security clearance, and escapes as the mission ends.

Mission objectives

  • Tail the helicopter.
  • Hack the chopper to find 2 security chiefs. Stay undetected.
