Dying Light Mission 8 Walkthrough: Find the Embers - Troy

We can't help but think that the mission length in Dying Light could have used some balancing. For example, Pact with Rais and Airdrop could have taken gamers more than an hour to complete, and spread out over several in-game days. This one, on the other hand, can be completed in about five minutes and without ever having to kill a zombie.

Our advice, however, is to open up the map and take a look around for some Safe Zones, then travel there and secure them. Players will be spending most of their time in this area until the game's conclusion, so they might as well set it up in a way that is beneficial moving forward.

Hint: Free running in Old Town is much different than the Slums. There are many zip lines and other ways to connect one roof to another, meaning that for the most part players will never have to step foot on the zombie infested ground.

Whether opting to secure Safe Zones or simply banging this mission out in five minutes, take a look at the mission waypoint when ready, then start heading in that direction. The most challenging part will be to climb the tower that Troy is hiding out in, although even that is hardly a problem for even the most casual gamer.
