Watch Dogs – All Survival Chess Puzzle Solutions (3 Stars on All Ten)

You need to solve all 10 chess puzzles in order to buy the “Maximized Focus” skill in the combat tree. There is three types of chess activity, but this video focuses on the Survival puzzles which I think are the easiest ones to do. These activity’s can be found in The Loop area of the map. Solve all 10 and you get access to the skill, which is needed for the Magic Smoke trophy / achievement.

  1. Awesome man thanks a lot except for puzzel 4

  2. the game only lets me ever use one piece only and the ai can use whatever fucking peice he wants what the hell. after the first move the game only lets me use the one with the cross on top every time and i cannot do anything productive with it. and every move he makes is a check. Like is that seriously how chess works or is this game fucked? I saw so many times where i could move the knight yet it would not let me select it.

  3. Had to solve puzzle 7 differently; the guy wasn't moving the same pieces that you showed in the video.

  4. puzzle 7: king f4-f5, pawn b5-b6, rook g1-g2, pawn 2 whatevs

  5. Thanks, this helped me alot seeing as i dont know how to play chess

  6. I'm going to agree with Nathan thanks ever so much

  7. Shit hot.
    Straight ti the point
    Well done sir

  8. Thanks man helped a lot 😄👍🏻👍🏻

  9. THANK YOU SOOO MUCH finally I just got Platinum Trophy .. Your video helped me a lot thanks again ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

  10. Thank God, I mean I don't mind playing a couple puzzles, but fuck me, if I wanted to play several 8 move chess puzzles I'd just buy myself a fucking chess game! XD

  11. When I go to play chess it always says not available. Why is this happening?

  12. I was in game number 7 and followed this precisely, however on his second move, the opponent moved his black square bishop to put me in check. I was able to improvise and survive all rounds fortunately, although the opponents "thinking" has changed some between this video and the point I started this game, following this video definitely helped me build a decent strategy when I had to improvise.

  13. Great video!
    Thank you I did also have the problem on puzzle 4, I was at the exact location as you I made sure of it so I just improvised no problem!
    Thumbs up for the vid 🙂

  14. Thanks so much! Saved me a ton of headache! Cheers!

  15. Thank you very much for helping out a fellow non chess player. Haha.

  16. Man I can't afford no lawyer. I got set up, I didn't steal it. Haha.

  17. & is different for mine. same layout but when I make my first move just as you he moves a rook instead of a knight

  18. I have no idea how to play chess, so thanks for this video!

  19. Thanks for this guide! I fucking hate chess and all kinda logical games in AAA games.

  20. This was very simple and straightforward. It was well paced and easy to keep up with as well. Thank you for this quality content and for helping us out.

  21. this is way harder than the fast checkmates game, If I was playing the AI most of these would be impossible wth 😮

  22. Thanks mate. My brain isn't powerful enough to handle this bullshit.

  23. Thank you for this video, chess is not my game so this helped immensely
