How to start to Gnome Outfit quest in Watch Dogs 2

Head for the octagonal seafood restaurant in Fisherman's Wharf (on the northern tip of San Francisco). Under the north west set of stairs there's a vent you can send the Jumper into.

Hack the laptop and take a look at the screen - each of the green circles on the map shows the general location of other gnomes. You can collect any of the following in the order you like.

Gnome collectible locations in Watch Dogs 2

Health Store Roof, Embarcadero Center
North of the Embarcadero Center, near the park, is a Health Store, and the gnome is located on the roof. Head behind the building to find a handy scissor lift and use it to climb up.

Homeless Camp, south of Transbay Center
South of the Transbay Center near the highway on-ramp is a gang controlled area. The gnome is in the rear of this so you can either sneak your way in or head round the the back and use an upgraded Jumper to avoid the gang entirely.

Pawn Shop, Tenderloin
Sat on a shelf inside - just help yourself.

Bakery Roof, Haum Data Center
To the south west of the Haum Data Center is a parking lot with a bakery on one corner. The gnome is on the roof with some friends, and there's a scissor lift located behind the night club opposite to help you up.

Tidis Warehouse, Palace of Fine Arts
Head north from the Palace of Fine Arts and you'll find a restricted area. The gnome is on the north side inside a small wooden doghouse against the fence. It's right next to the gate so running in and grabbing it without incident should be easy.

Hot Tub, Mission-Dolores/Castro Theatre
Opposite Stache & Vine south of Castro Theatre is a grey building with a hot tub on the roof. Head for the south side of the block and hijack the scissor lift, drive it round to the front, and grab the gnome from above.

Taqueria Rooftop, SF MOMA
There's a small terraced park opposite SF MOMA, and just to the north of its west end is a Taqueria. Grab the nearby scissor lift, climb to the roof, and look behind the ducting on the roof.

Garden of Peace and Love
West of Painted Ladies there's a garden filled with hippies in the area in the centre of the block. Enter the south entrance and climb the stairs to your right to find the gnome in front of a pile of breeze blocks.

Rooftop Garden, Transbay Center
At the eastern end of Transbay Center is a rooftop park. Make your way up and head towards the eastern end to find a hedged-off area next to a large red sculpture. Use the upgraded Jumper to jump from the small hedge over the tall one to find another gnome.

Tunnel, Blume Arena
At the northern end of the water to the east of Blume Arena is a tunnel. Head down it, and on the west side about half way along is a small dock. The gnome is sat on a deck chair at the back.
