Aiden Pearce

Hold On, Kiddo is the thirteenth storyline mission in Watch Dogs, and the first mission of Act II.


After Aiden escapes from Palin Correctional Center, Damien calls him and offers him a meeting. Aiden accepts and when gets to the location, Damien calls him and sends a feed to TV's around Aiden. As appears, Damien is in Nicky's house. That pisses off Aiden and he goes to Nicky's house. Aiden finds Damien inside and hits him with his baton. After, Aiden asks him about Nicky and Jacks. Damien says he doesn't know about Jacks and Aiden locates that Jacks is in the L-Train. When Aiden arrives to L-Train station, he sees there is Fixers that trying to catch Jacks. Aiden asks Clara for a one-time L-Train hack (if it's not bought from Skills Tree). Then Aiden hacks the train and kills the fixers. Then he arrives to Jackson's train and takes Jacks to Yolanda Mendez as the misson ends.

Mission objectives

  • Meet Damien at the plaza.
  • Reach Nicky's house.
  • Get to the train station where Jackson is located.
  • Hack the train undetected to get Jackson away safely.
  • Take down the fixers before they reach Jackson.
  • Eliminate the remaining fixers.
  • Board the L-Train and find Jackson.

Strategy tips

  • After hacking the train, have a gun ready. There is a good chance you will be able to take down at least one of the fixers' cars before it even leaves, saving you lots of work.
    • Shoot at least one tire on a fixer's car, reducing their speed. Or, take a Grenade Launcher to blow up Fixer's cars.

Video Walkthrough


  • If Aiden has not yet unlocked the Train Hack (which is necessary for this mission) he will contact Clara to give him a singular use version of the hack.
