Inhibitors are crucial to progress in Dying Light 2. Having three of these rare collectibles lets you permanently increase your health or stamina, which in turn allows you to unlock more abilities in your skill tree.
Boosting either stat also strengthens your immunity to the infection. This lets you stave away the virus much longer when you’re traveling at night or inside dark zones.
There are 126 inhibitors scattered around Villedor, and each one is usually given as a hefty reward after a combat gauntlet or parkour trial. Sometimes, you may stumble on one during exploration.
This guide is going to teach you how to find inhibitors in Dying Light 2 around Villedor, including key locations that guarantee one of these legendary commodities, and even one that has a stack of them.
GRE Access Key
Outside of quest rewards, inhibitors will only spawn inside sparse GRE caches. These special chests are sealed with advanced technology and can only be opened by an intricate access key.
Luckily, you receive one from the informant who helps smuggle you into the city.
The access key will alert you to any GRE caches within 50 meters of your location. Pay close attention because it will usually be accompanied by an audio cue telling you that it detects an inhibitor cache nearby. You can confirm how near it is by checking the tracker on the lower left of your screen.
Your tracker is the best way to find inhibitors in the wild.
Use the tracker to find the inhibitor cache. It is usually hidden inside a building or a safe house. If you’re within 10 meters of the cache, its location will appear on your heads-up display.
Inhibitors are typically surrounded by zombies, so be prepared to sneak around them or brute force through them.
The Usual Locations
Villedor is filled to the brim with exciting locations for you to explore. Every time you open the world map, there’s an overwhelming amount of icons begging for your attention. If you’re on the hunt for stat-boosting inhibitors, you should prioritize certain locations over others.
GRE Quarantine and Dark Zones have the highest chance to spawn multiple inhibitors in one building. The catch is that these areas are basically nests for dangerous zombies, making it challenging to retrieve these caches. Also, it’s best to tackle these zones at night as there are fewer threats to deal with during that time.
I recommend tackling these areas when you have a level or two on you. Taking down zombies makes the stealth sections much easier since you can slowly clear safe pathways. However, if you really want to push through with a low level, remember that you don’t need to sweep the whole building at once.
GRE Anomalies spawns a special infected for you to fight during nighttime. The Revenant is fast, agile, and can spit poisonous projectiles at you. On top of that, it can also summon wild virals to wear you down.
Defeating this mini-boss lets you loot the nearby cache that contains two inhibitors, among other goodies like valuables and unique equipment.
Airdrops are generally located on the very top of high buildings. You can attempt to scale the building to loot its contents. Make sure you know how to climb walls in Dying Light 2 because this is a parkour trial made to test your endurance and patience.
Metro Stations serve as the game’s fast travel system. After powering up one, you can usually find an inhibitor cache waiting for you.
Sometimes, quests also give inhibitors as a reward upon completion.
Inhibitor caches can also be found within random buildings and locations within Villedor. However, these places are ordinarily unmarked; therefore, you can have to rely on your access key’s cue to find these.
It is good practice to use the height advantage from the top of a windmill to survey interesting locations. Using the binoculars allows you to track quests and objectives in Dying Light 2. This will also give you enough clarity to plan out your route in advance so you can hit as many as possible.
