Watch Dogs: Legion of the Dead ditches cargo drones

Watch Dogs: Legion of the Dead ditches cargo drones

There’s a new minor patch available today for Watch Dogs: Legion that addresses a few remaining bugs in the hacking-focused open-world game. Most of the adjustments it makes are relatively minor, but it does make a potentially significant change to the zombie-themed Legion of the Dead mode. Specifically, you can’t use cargo drones in that game mode anymore.

Legion of the Dead is a survival game mode for Watch Dogs Legion that sets hordes of zombies loose on near-future London. To survive, you have to scavenge resources and raid caches guarded by Albion soldiers and Clan Kelley enforcers, all while avoiding getting chewed on by the undead population.

Here’s the thing, though: every time you start a new run, you get a random survivor who in turn has a random gadget. If this happened to be the cargo drone, as many construction worker characters have, you’ve got a massive advantage – you can simply call in the large quad-copter drone and ride it high above the bitey heads of all the zombies.
