In the run up to its release, Watch Dogs: Legion was the subject of quite a bit of buzz. Turns out, there’s some buzz in the game itself, too.

To earn the “NO NOT THE BEES” Watch Dogs: Legion achievement and trophy, you need to neutralize 10 Albion officers with the Bee Swarm ability. In this guide, we’ll walk you through how to recruit the Beekeeper Skilled Operative and offer good strategies for taking down 10 Albion guards.

Recruiting the Beekeeper Skilled Operative

To recruit the Beekeeper Skilled Operative, you first need to complete the London Borough Uprising. There are three activities with red markers to complete before the “Mind Games” opens up. Complete it, and the Beekeeper Skilled Operative will automatically be added to your team.

Neutralizing 10 Albion guards

In our 60 or so hours with the game, we’ve only seen one NPC with the beekeeper occupation out in the wild. So while it is possible to recruit a backup beekeeper off the street, you’ll be looking for a while.

If you’re playing with permadeath enabled, you’ll need to be careful as you attempt this. Thankfully, you don’t need to take the Albion guards out consecutively. Go for this achievement/trophy fairly early on in the game when Albion officers are still maintaining a strong presence on the streets. That way, it will be easy to find one or two together, and you won’t need to infiltrate a densely populated restricted area.

The Bee Swarm ability will only eat up about half of an Albion guards health. So, before attempting to neutralize them, shoot them with your stun gun a few times to get their health down. Then unleash your biblical plague.

If, however, you do want to knock out all 10 in one go, we recommend the Albion Station Camden (shown above), which has ample cover and is packed with Albion officers.
