Dying Light 2: How to Get Guns

How to Get Guns in Dying Light 2

If you played the original Dying Light, you know the game focused on melee weapons but offered a selection of guns as well. If you have also put time into Dying Light 2, you may be wondering just where the guns are.

Unfortunately, the answer is that there are no guns really in Dying Light 2. You get a craftable scrap shotgun for the late game. However, it isn’t actually a weapon. It takes up an equipment slot.

The reasoning for this in-game is kind of wild. The military was able to collect every single gun and all the ammo for them as well. Despite all of these craft masters, there is not a single person in the game who knows how to craft guns or ammo. As someone who lives in the good old United States of America, I find this incredibly unlikely. Even if they had just a quarter of our guns, confiscating all of them would be impossible.

Still, that’s the excuse Techland is going with. They just didn’t feel like having guns this time around. If you want a ranged weapon, you will have to stick with the bow. No guns for you in Dying Light 2.

That is a bit disappointing, but far from the end of the world. There are plenty of melee weapons for you to choose from, and the combat is more visceral with them than with guns. Just get used to them because that will be your main form of attack throughout the entire game.
