What Are Bandit Camps In Dying Light 2?

Bandit camps are large structures which functions as base camps for bandits and Renegades, which is Dying Light 2’s hostile faction. They’re pretty difficult to liberate and are somewhat identical to the enemy outposts from Far Cry.

Liberating Bandit Camps in Dying Light 2 nets you some pretty good items, decent EXP for both parkour and Combat, as well as unlock a new Safe Zone where you rest, store items, and alternate the day and night cycle.

Bandit Camps are always populated by mini-bosses which you have to beat before liberating. They’re these massive berserkers who somehow found enough protein in the zombie apocalypse and carry these sluggish, hard-hitting two handed weapons.

You’ll also have to face a plethora of other human enemies in the camp. If you’re not careful, bandits can swarm and overwhelm you.

Once the coast is clear, you can claim the flag tower inside the Bandit Camp to liberate it. You don’t need to kill every bandit in the camp to do this, but you will lose out on all the loot inside.

Liberating Bandit Camp Trophies in Dying Light 2

You can achieve two trophies associated with liberating Bandit Camps in Dying Light 2.

Ban Hammer Dying Light 2 TrophyBan Hammer

Flag Burning Dying Light 2 TrophyFlag Burning

Keep in mind that liberating all the Bandit Camps is a requirement if you want to platinum Dying Light 2.

Tips on Liberating Bandit Camps in Dying Light 2

When you’re preparing to raid a bandit camp, we offer a few tips before you attempt to liberate any of them in Dying Light 2.

  • Take out many Bandits using stealth. They can quickly overwhelm you in numbers if you take them head on.
  • When caught, don’t be afraid to use hit and run tactics. Bandits don’t respawn unless you head too far. So you can exit the base, heal up, get your bearings, and try again.
  • Utilized the bow in Dying Light 2. We have a guide for bows in Dying Light 2. If you want to specifically be a Ranger in the game, take out enemies silently, zombify them from a distance, and kill lookouts stationed in high places then you’ll find the bow to be incredibly useful.
  • Throw enemies to spikes. There are traps in the wall you can throw and kick enemies into. Those will kill them in one shot. You can also throw them off rooftops since 3 out of 4 Bandit Camps in Dying Light 2 are located in some really high places.

And those are all the tips we can offer for liberating Bandit Camps in Dying Light 2.
