Planting a Bug is the 29th storyline mission in Watch Dogs, and the 14th mission of Act II.


After saving Jackson, Aiden calls Tyrone "Bedbug" Hayes and tells him "the time has come". Then, Aiden goes to the Unicorn & Dragon Pub and leaves an audio recorder for Bedbug to take it. Then, Aiden infiltrates the Rossi-Fremont building complex and hacks the cameras of the building. Aiden tells Bedbug where to go by the cameras to make Bedbug go to the servers.

When Bedbug reaches the servers, Aiden hacks the server through Bedbug's camera. Shortly after this, Bedbug hears gangbanger sounds. Afraid, Bedbug takes a server table and puts it to block the door. Aiden disconnects from the servers and Iraq catches Bedbug. Then, before the Bedbug's camera is disconnected, Aiden sees that Iraq hangs Bedbug out of the window. Iraq calls to find Aiden, but Aiden escapes as the mission ends.
