Playing Days Gone for the first time? Fear not, Bend Studio has developer information to help you get started.
You need to maintain your bike by collecting scrap metal, researching fuel, and upgrading it in camps. Right from the start, you want to invest as much as possible in your bike. Whether you need to flee an unexpected horde, hunt a bounty, or escape an ambush, your bike is crucial for survival. To limit maintenance on your bike, focus on leveling your fuel tank to cover longer distances before you have to stop. If you run out of fuel, you’ll have to step on your bike and explore Freaker’s Infested Land on foot. Take good care of him and he will take care of you.
Tip: Watch out for tow trucks and believe it or not gas stations for fuel.
Hordes are a formidable enemy in Days Gone. They can range from 25 Freakers to 500 Freakers. To defeat a horde, you need to strategize, prepare with ammo, traps, and plan an escape route. It won’t be easy, but to increase your chances of success, follow these few tips to start your journey towards creating a safer world.
Tip 1: Force the Freakers to take narrow paths to mix them up to create a better line of fire. Use attractors to throw flammable crates and barrels nearby to lure a group of them there, then detonate it.
Tip 2: Park your bike nearby in case you need to run back to fill up your ammo from your saddlebags (can be equipped as an upgrade).
Keep an eye out on your travels for NERO locations. NERO Checkpoints have valuable items for you to upgrade Deacon, collect crafting supplies, access your gun locker, and fuel to top up your tank. You can find NERO injectors at these places to improve your stamina, focus, or health. Each upgrade provides a significant boost and can be the difference between life and death.
Tip: improve your stamina first… You can always run away if you are not prepared.
Each camp uses the trust and credit system, but what you get in each is different. Complete jobs, clear areas of infestation, hand over bounties and eliminate hordes to increase your confidence level with encampments and earn credits to buy weapons and bike upgrades. A few camps that you will come across early on are the Copeland Camp and the Hot Springs. Copeland’s Camp includes a mechanic who will upgrade your bike to improve performance and provide you with customization options including decals, paints, bike skins, and visual parts. Hot Springs specializes in selling weapons to help you fight the relentless danger outside the gates.
Speaking of areas of infestation, you want to burn those nests as quickly as possible. Make sure you have enough molotov crafted or use the incendiary bolts with your crossbow to ignite the nests. Freakers use these nests to hibernate during the day, giving you a slight edge over their whereabouts. Be aware that if you are brave enough to tackle these areas at night, you will have more Freakers roaming the wild. Upon successfully clearing an infestation area, you will receive a new, fast travel route to move around the map more efficiently.
Tip: The day / night cycle and the weather change the behavior of Freakers.
Days Gone offers three skill trees, including melee combat, ranged combat, and survival in which to invest your skill points. Each player has their own playstyle, but we recommend that you unlock these skills first to help you during the early stages of the story.
Distance: Focused shot. This skill gives you the ability to activate focus while aiming a ranged weapon. Focusing slows down time and helps increase accuracy, which is beneficial when taking on a horde. You can upgrade this capability with the NERO injectors found on the map.
From a distance: fight and flight. This skill helps you move and aim a ranged weapon more accurately. Days Gone will keep you on your toes and the Freakers won’t let you stand still. Get used to running!
Melee: field repairs. This skill gives you the ability to repair melee weapons with junk. You can collect scrap metal from under the hoods of vehicles, abandoned buildings and scattered around the world. Once you’ve crafted a weapon, you can repair it to continue using it. Trust us you will use your melee weapon a lot. Without this skill, the durability of the weapon will decrease and break, leaving you with only your starter knife.
