The Loop on a rainy day.

The Loop is one of six districts in Chicago in Watch Dogs. The neighborhood is named after the L-Train that makes a loop in this area. Its neighbor is Mad Mile.


The Loop is the district for downtown Chicago. Many skyscrapers can be found here. The Chicago River flows through here and can be seen with many boats driving on it. The L-Train is a common sight around here, and Aiden can use it to swiftly get around the area. Watch Dogs' rendition of Chicago also features the famous L-Train Loop in the district. Many high-end cars such as Sonarus LXsSunrimsCavales, Kigen AWDs, Lithium SPsKöln 500S, and even Scafati GTs can be found in The Loop with ease. Public Service vehicles such as Cavale Taxi Cabs and Minivan Cab can also commonly be found here. Trucks will spawn here as well, but they are not as common as they are in Brandon Docks

A sign seen when entering The Loop.

The CTOS Control Center is located in the middle of the district, in a construction site. It's revealed by Clara (under the identity BadBoy17) that hacker group DedSec unsuccessfully attacked that center and as a result Blume added more armed guards. Aiden must hack in it in order to identify the man who ordered a prank call on Aiden's sister.
