Dying Light 2: Breaking down the recent know more episode 3.1 

The new video sees producer Szymon Strauss talk about weapons and techniques that will come in handy during combat scenarios. Szymon also dives deeper into the durability of different weapons and rarity.

When asked how different the weapons will be in Dying Light 2 when compared to the previous installment, Szymon said, “Well, there are differences actually. In first Dying Light, you could find simple blades and tools like wrenches, you know, typical stuff for the post-apocalyptic world. They are out now.”

He further added that players will still find high-tier weapons, but now, will be more expensive and rarer. Szymon advised players that building weapons from scraps and other materials found during exploration would be beneficial to players.

Szymon Strauss answers some questions

On the question of the durability of weapons, Szymon replied, “It depends on the class of the weapon. A high-quality axe which is a rare thing to find would be more durable than something made on the fly.” He also said that the latter would break after a couple of fights due to the blade coming off or something else.

The game producer also recommended players carrying at least one modded weapon as this will be effective in fighting special enemies. While discussing combat, Szymon also shared personal techniques to ward off enemies. He says, “Try to find a higher ground lure down your enemies like biters with a decoy. Let’s say firecrackers or meat bait and then throw a grenade.”

Dying Light 2 will also have ranged weapons like bows and arrows and, as per Szymon, “it would be very difficult” against certain enemy types. Players will get a new weapon called Stationary cannon. According to the producer, it will be fun to play with. Dying Light will feature 200 different weapons for players to use and keep. 

When asked which is his favorite weapon, Szymon said, “The electric machete classic and stylish.”

Dying Light 2 Stay Human will give greater importance to the narrative when compared with its predecessor.
