Factions are groups of NPCs in the Watch Dogs series, which range from law enforcement agencies to gangs.
Watch Dogs 2
In Watch Dogs 2, factions have been greatly improved on, and different factions will even fight against each other at random.
- All legal factions will fight on the same side against another faction or the player (example: Umeni and SFPD against Marcus)
- Any illegal faction will fight any other illegal or legal faction.
- Sometimes when using the Police Hack on an illegal faction member they will be apprehended by the police without resisting, sometimes they will attack the police resulting in a shootout.
- If any faction engages the player in combat there will be a message saying "[Faction] has engaged you in combat"
- If a faction engages another faction in combat there will be a message saying "[Faction] is in conflict with [Faction]"
- Certain members of factions can call for reinforcements, if the call completes a Vehicle containing 2 passengers (Type of enemy depends on Heat Level).
- San Francisco Police Department
- Oakland Police Department
- Umeni Security Corps
- San Francisco Fire Department
Watch Dogs: Legion
- In Watch Dogs 2, most factions can temporarily shut down the CTOS if the player is hacking them, except—weirdly—the hacker group Prime Eight.
