A simple electronic device that can be used to distract and draw in enemies. Non-lethal.
―In-game description.

Lures are a strategic crafted items in Watch Dogs.


Lures are relatively small devices that produce sound on instruction. They are used to attract attention, distract or lure a target. Lures can be crafted at anytime, on any spot. Each one requires a single electronic part.


Lures work in a similar manner to IEDs. Lures can be crafted on any spot if craft kits are available. When aiming, a trajectory path visualisation will appear, to aid the player. Once thrown, a highlight will appear above the lure, assisting the player in locating and activating the device.


  • Lures are the first craftable gadget Aiden uses in the game.
