Explore the map, become familiar with the movements and weapons and plan your travels taking into account factors such as the time of day.

As also mentioned in the previous paragraph of this guide dedicated to the tricks and tips for Dying Light 2, you can gain experience from the actions you take to level up. Carrying out the activities that the game offers and progressing in the plot will allow you to earn valuable XP points to level up. This is not a fast process, but it is good to pay attention to it: the map will in fact show the recommended level for each available quest, allowing you to calculate if you are ready to face it.

A good tip that could make it easier for you to explore the game map is to take advantage of the fast travel mechanics linked to metro stations. You will find one for each city district, and all of them will be unlocked by completing a side quest. The assignment will take place at night and will require you to secure the area from all kinds of monstrosities, and then turn on the electric generator.

The right approach - Dying Light 2: tips and tricks to get started

Although Dying Light 2 is a title that makes action one of its main focuses, in our guide dedicated to the tricks and tips to get started we feel obliged to remind you that the game often contemplates the stealth approach. Stealth is often a recommended option because it allows you to silently eliminate opponents with one shot, useful if you are in the vicinity of a group of enemies (or some more powerful opponent) and your Stamina does not yet allow you to manage particularly chaotic situations.

It will be the Stamina to determine how long you can run and fight before you get tired, and consequently the advice is to give priority to strengthening the latter, along with obviously the life bar. The methods in which it is possible to do this are mainly two: wear suitable equipment and use the Inhibitors. The latter in particular can be obtained by completing the missions available on the map, therefore the advice is to prioritize these tasks to make your alter ego grow faster and stronger.

Let's continue with more tips and tricks for Dying Light 2 and let's talk now about the equipment. There will be various pieces of clothing, which will fall mainly into four distinct categories: Cleaning will offer ranged weapon bonuses, Medical will increase healing and damage with parkour techniques, Fighter will increase the damage and Stamina cost of one-handed weapons, Tank it will decrease the damage taken by favoring two-handed weapons instead. The color with which a piece of equipment is highlighted, as also happens in other role-playing games, then determines its rarity: common (grigio), uncommon (green), rare (blue), unique (purple) e artefatto (giallo).

As mentioned in the previous paragraph, wearing the right clothes will allow us to get a boost for life and Stamina. However the equipment will also be the only way to acquire all the other bonuses mentioned above, also allowing us to upgrade Survivor Sense range and duration, the ability with which Aiden is able to easily find useful objects on the map. The advice is therefore to adapt the equipment to your preferred play style, paying particular attention to the rarity of clothing (remember that the higher the rarity, the more substantial bonuses are).

Weapons and Skills - Dying Light 2: tips and tricks to get started

The equipment worn will be important, but don't forget about the weaponry. Aiden will be able to defend himself with a great variety of tools of death both hand-to-hand and at a distance, and it will certainly be useful to choose the most suitable one for the situation but also the one that best matches your equipment. Whatever your choice, however, keep in mind that weapons will break after a certain number of uses, so don't get too attached to it and always keep in mind that, as the adventure progresses, you will have the opportunity to get hold of new and more powerful toys (by the way, here you can find our guide to the best weapons in the game).

Continuing our roundup of tips and tricks, it is impossible not to mention the unlockable skills that Dying Light makes available to us. In addition to weapons and clothes, there will be two skill trees: one for the combat and one for the parkour. Both will contain useful skills to be acquired by spending the precious XP obtained by completing quests and slaughtering the undead.
