Our Dying Light 2 guide contains a complete set of information about the game's basic gameplay mechanics, a complete walkthrough, the consequences of all decisions, a a full trophies/achievements guide.
In the Basics chapter, you can find basic tips and tricks related to, e.g. combat, stealth, exploration, crafting and character progression (combat and parkour skills, proficiency, upgrading equipment and more). In the FAQ chapter, we have answered to the frequently asked questions - is it possible to save the game, how to use fast travel, how to get a bow, can you repair weapons, are there romances, do important choices matter, how to get XP, or how to heal yourself.
One of the most important chapters of the guide is the walkthrough in which we have detailed all the main and side quests. You will learn about the course of the quests, what important choices appear in them, how to defeat the bosses, and what rewards you get for completing the quests. We also discussed the different endings on a separate page.
Another important chapter is the world atlas, which should help you explore Villedor in 100%. It contains maps of all city districts, as well as lists of all important additional activities, which include, among others, windmills, power plants, water towers, anomalies, GRE Quarantine, challenges, bandit camps and encounters.
Another important chapter in our guide is dedicated to secrets and collectibles. With its help, you will be able to use it to reach the main categories of secrets, which are inhibitors, notes, recordings and graffiti tags.
The main pages of the guide are complemented by a number of minor ones. Our guide could not be complete without a trophy guide that describes all the achievements and explains the difficulty of getting the platinum trophy. You will also find pages about the controls, system requirements, bugs and technical issues, as well as how long will it take to complete Dying Light 2.
