I overheard them talking about Crispin. They know something is wrong, you need to get out of there. 
―Poppy to Aiden

A Risky Bid is the twenty-first storyline mission in Watch Dogs, and the 12th mission of Act II.


Aiden takes the invitation and goes to the auction that is located in a boat storage in Brandon Docks. After getting in, Aiden goes up the catwalk, and finds Iraq there. Aiden pretends to accidentally hit him as Aiden scans Iraq's RFID tags and apologizes to him. Then, Lucky Quinn starts to talk with Aiden. After the talk, Aiden starts to escape and gets out unseen, there are more guards situated outside but Aiden kills them and proceeds to calls the cops to raid the auction as the mission ends.

Mission objectives

  • Follow the guide.
    • Enter the human auction.
    • Follow the guide.
    • Locate Iraq.
    • Scan Iraq's ID.
  • Escape unseen.
    • Retrieve your weapons.
  • Escape the area.



  • You can pick up the U100 lightweight machine gun from any enforcer during this mission.
  • An MP5 can also be found on a box next to the door Aiden exits the venue from after retrieving his weapons.
  • Several characters in this mission (besides those involved in the Human Trafficking investigations) have unique profiles when scanned:
    • The man who meets Aiden at the door: Eugene Yeboah, Immigration application denied, Age: 28, Occupation: Unauthorized to work.
    • The woman who collects Aiden's weapons: Shana Keeley, Has buried three siblings, Age: 24, Occupation: Hostess.
    • The man behind the counter: Jonah Fredricks, Designing illegal App, Age: 25, Occupation: Bouncer.
    • The guide: Warrick James: Enrolled in online accounting class, Age: 21, Occupation: Gang Member.
    • The cop leaning on the wall as you enter the next room: Phil Dunvegan, Acquitted of corruption charges, Age: 48, Occupation: Police.
    • The cop talking to the Chicago South Club member: Harry Creegdurn: On suspension, Age:50, Occupation: Police.
    • The above Club member: Tommy Reardon, Member of the Chicago South Club, Lucky Quinn is son's Godfather, Occupation: Club Associate.
    • Several slave girls: Amy 100 1101, Ballet student, Age: 18, Occupation: Abducted.
    • The crying slave girl in the locked room (viewable through Intrude): Alina 011 0111, Romanian immigrant, Age: 19, Occupation: Abducted.
    • The man in the same room as above: Joseph DeFrieda, Known Mafia member, Age: 48, Occupation: Restaurant Owner.
  • When Aiden is asked to relinquish his weapons, he will give up the M8-M, even if the player hasn't obtained it yet before this mission. This is most likely a developer oversight.
  • After this mission, the Human Trafficking Investigation unlocks.
  • It is unusual that Quinn did not know for certain that Aiden was not Crispin, as Quinn presumably would have met Crispin on previous occasions given their relationship. Furthermore, Quinn talked to Aiden in the mission Backseat Driver. Quinn should have remembered this, especially since Aiden did not disguise his voice or wear a different outfit.
    • However considering that Aiden's cover was blown almost immediately after meeting Quinn, it is very likely that Quinn did remember him, and alerted security after leaving his presence. Quinn's comment to Aiden that he didn't detect a transatlantic accent (considering the real Crispin was an expatriate who spent most of his life outside the United States) is a subtle hint that he wasn't fooled by Aiden's disguise.
  • It is possible to enter Skipsun Rentals without actually having the mission active. This is done by first going to outside the south side fence to unlock a control box for a door inside the mission zone, then driving any climbable vehicle through the west side gate (which is normally inactive during the mission) against the concrete foundation on the north side. Vaulting over the vehicle and then the fence on the elevated foundation grants access to the normally one-way mission zone. Going through the previously unlocked door on the south side, one can climb on the scaffolding positioned underneath the hole in the ceiling from the east side while holding vault and jogging towards the west, on the south end of the scaffolding. When done correctly, the player will ascend to the construction portion of Skipsun Rentals.
    • Nearly all of the mission area will be unloaded past the white construction section. Only the waterlogged basement is partially loaded, while the first floor won't have a floor at all.
