Dying Light 2 Guide: GRE Containers

When exploring the open environment, you could hear a voice line warning you of the presence of a GRE container. Inhibitors, which are upgrade materials that let you to get stronger and obtain more skill points to unlock new abilities, are contained in GRE canisters. The most valuable collectible in the game is without a doubt GRE canisters.

Until you unlock the paraglider and grappling hook, for example, you won’t be able to reach numerous containers. It can be extremely pleasant to tidy up GRE containers throughout the map once all of the components are in place, and fast development can ensue.

Dying Light 2 Guide: Loot items

Looting goods found on your trip is a key aspect of Dying Light 2, much like it was in the original game. In the game, you may find something in practically every room, box, closet, and drawer. Obviously, you’d want to conduct all of that looting for crafting purposes. All of the objects in the game, as well as your own weapons, may be made from these components. 

You may require additional items in addition to what you obtain from missions. Because Dying Light 2 has no encumbrances, you may just hoover up any and all objects you come across up to a certain point. The game is also clever enough to recognise when you already have the goods you need to finish a mission, so it’s a good idea to keep your inventory stocked.

Don’t engage in combat all the time

Even though the combat in Dying Light 2 is very fun, sometimes it would be better if you just avoided zombies. One of the reasons is that each weapon has a different durability stat, so you won’t be able to whack every single enemy you see.

It may take longer to take out a single zombie depending on the level of the area, and these small skirmishes often attract other zombies nearby and consume a lot of your resources. There are a lot of new variants at night because the majority of zombies are out on the street. Therefore, you should engage them when you have the opportunity/desire to.

Dying Light 2 Guide: Block, parry, and dodge

Again, these are just similar in almost every game and it plays a very important part. When you hold down the block button, opponent strikes are automatically blocked. You can pull off a parry at the proper time, paralyze your opponent, and then kick another poor person in the face while using them as a jump pad.

Dodging can also provide a similar effect. It is also feasible to temporarily reduce downtime so that you may complete a major relocation without interruption. Keep in mind that you can dodge in any direction twice before your character stumbles. Dodging doesn’t deplete your stamina.

If you do it consistently, then you should be able to land a perfect block or dodge pretty frequently. Moreover, if you dodge at the right time, you can cancel an attack animation. This can be extremely useful when dealing with large groups of enemies.

Dying Light 2 Guide: Night Hunting

It’s a totally different sensation going around at night looking for infected than it is to run around during the day. Yes, you’ll have to keep an eye on your infection level, which can be managed using UV light or things like UV Mushrooms, but you’ll get a boost to your abilities and earned XP in exchange. The majority of zombies are roaming the streets, it’s really dark your immunity is continually dwindling, and there are tougher, more horrifying zombie types walking about to boot.

Nevertheless, in parkour and combat, you also gain a huge amount of XP during the night. Furthermore, many of the game’s side and scavenging missions are designed to be attempted at night. Since most undead roam on the streets, it will be easier to explore the indoor areas where they occur.

Be aware of the dark zones too

Indoor Dark Zones are significantly more hazardous during the day than they are at night. The infected, as you may know, despise UV light, and when exposed to it, they move more slowly and act less violently, therefore many of them seek shelter indoors. You’ll discover lots of infections if you go inside during the day.

It’s most likely a Dark Zone if you observe drapes streaming out of a window. These points will be highlighted on your map. During the day, these locations will be dangerous, but at night, the majority of the infected will flee, enabling you to sneak in and collect any treasure you can. Just be wary of being ambushed by the sick who have remained inside.
