Dying Light 2 will feature weapon degradation


Don’t expect your weapon to last very long in Dying Light 2, as weapon degradation has been confirmed to occur as in the original. This news comes from developer Techland’s latest Dying 2 Know More video on YouTube, which goes into more detail about the types of weapons you will be able to use in the game.

According to producer Szymon Strauss, the weapons have been drastically revised in Dying Light 2 to reflect the time that elapses between Game 1 and Game 2. Instead of simple machetes and adjustable wrenches, players will find weapons crafted from scrap metal and pieces of scenery that have been roughly stitched together.

Strauss explains that standard weapons are still available in the game, although they are rare or very expensive. This then ties into the game’s weapon durability systems, with junk guns breaking much faster than better guns.

This means that your weapons can shatter in tricky situations, leaving you helpless and more vulnerable. However, Strauss explains that there are other methods of taking down enemies, such as luring enemies with bait and firecrackers, and using the game’s verticality to take down enemies.

Strauss also reveals that there are just under 200 weapons players can craft, purchase, and find throughout the game, many of which are based on weapons from different historical periods, albeit made with modern materials. Weapons can be breakable in Dying Light 2, but rest assured there will be plenty more to use if you’re in a rush.

In case you missed the news, Dying Light 2 was recently postponed to 2022. The game was originally slated for a December release, but has instead been pushed back slightly to February 4 next year. Dying Light 2 will launch on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X, with a free upgrade confirmed for those who purchase the game on latest generation systems
