Days Gone is what you'd consider a fan favourite of the PlayStation 4 generation, and its hardcore community is still pulling off impressive feats in-game more than 18 months after launch. Just take Reddit user SpawnicusRex, for example, who has been detailing their efforts to kill off entire hordes of Freakers without firing a single bullet. The pro player has accomplished this with both the Iron Butte and Sawmill hordes so far, sending 800 Freakers back to their graves without ever pulling a trigger. Pretty cool, right?
Check out both successful attempts in the videos below, which demonstrate how traps set in specific positions will take out hundreds of undead members at a time. As such, you'd never need to waste any bullets. We actually covered the work of SpawnicusRex earlier this year, but given the latest example where 500 Freakers meet their demise as well as the game inclusion in the PS Plus Collection, we figured it was time for a refresher.
Could ever attempt such a feat in Days Gone? Share your tips and tricks in the comments below.
Gonna have to get round to playing this at some point now all the bugs have been ironed out ......impressive stuff my best achievement is trying to use all other members apart from Cloud to fight in FF7.
I've said it once and I will say it again.
One of the best games of the generation, such an underrated title! Can't wait for Bend Studios to take full advantage of the PS5 to deliver hordes of 1000s!
I did the opposite and used every bullet I had. I literally killed the final freaker with the last bullet remaining in both my weapons.
I've just completed Days Gone yesterday for the first time. Seriously good game, highly recommend. Just going for the Plat now.
Also, he's using about 7,000 napalm Molotov's and proximity mines.
that was REALLY IMPRESSIVE!!! I managed a few hordes, but not all of them. I thoroughly enjoyed playing Days Gone last year and can't wait to revisit it when I eventually get a PS5. I've yet to try the other modes (NG+, Survival and Challenge) so I've got plenty of means to try and replicate his feats! (and no doubt will fail ...)
A pro Days Gone player?
You can be a pro in just about anything these days hey?
I played a couple hours of Days Gone back in Spring. It's fun, I should really go back to it sometime.
Iron Butt Horde... like the dude out Spongebob?
Loved that game!
Really enjoyed Days Gone. The gameplay loop never got old. They could do with some better writers for the sequel, though. Narrative-wise it was fine, but the characterisations were pretty rubbish. Didn't buy Deacon and Sarah's relationship at all. They were all over the place.
Glad to hear the bugs have been sorted, though. One of the few times I went for a platinum, only to complete it and be told there was still a horde undone, even though a checked online and confirmed that wasn't the case. Sucked a bit, that.
My two favorite ways to deal with Hordes in Days Gone was to put traps near explosives (like the video) and to lure hordes into enemy camps and let my two opponents attack each other. Great fun.
I wish the story and writing in Days Gone was a little better, because the gameplay loop was a good time (other than maintaining your bike, which I hated).
If only he dedicated his time to a Covid vaccine, Earth would be a paradise instead of a hell.
Loved this game so much i got the plat
I completely agree about the characters, they all felt very odd and off tone, which contributed to the story dragging in my opinion, that and the track something or somebody sections.
I've just done Resident Evil 2 remake so I'm probably ok for a Zombie game for now, I have it in my library, though, so will get round to it.
Let me guess? The player is using explosives.
@HUMPERDOO Completely agree with your assesment of the game. I think the narrative is alright, the gameplay loop is phenomenal, but the character dialogues... they're terrible.
I'm playing the game at the moment. However I do have to add that I come across a lot of bugs still. Recently encountered a horde of which I couldn't shoot any of the zombies. Or the other day a 50 square feet area in which all the objects had disappeared, even the roads and trees. Couldn't finish my side quest there. Et cetera et cetera.
Still I am way more in love with the game than I ever expected after the reviews.
@DonJorginho totally agree , such an amazing title that many dismissed , I enjoyed this game as much or if not more than any other game this gen
Love this game , better than last of us two story wise lol
@HUMPERDOO Totally agree w/ the character development and dialogue. Also, I found Sam Whitwer's VO specifically annoying whenever he would go to sleep in-game.
@Jayofmaya Honestly after RE2, you probably never have to do another zombie game again. RE2 Remake is probably the pinnacle of zombie games on any modern system IMHO.
@KonkeyDong64 Yeah, it's good. Still have scenario Bs to complete but managed to do the Ghost Survivors, too. Hope someone finishes the RE 3 remake through mods at some point.
Finished the game few days ago and I have to say it's very mediocre overall. Looks like the title was released too soon and few things are unfinished or underdeveloped. Gameplay is too repetitive, additional side missions are boring and story is very meh, at the end I was skipping all the time - so simple and without creativity. Days Gone is kind of Mad Max mistake, deserves better quality. And these horrible loading times...plus it's definitely too long and kick off is too slow. Sequel should offer much, much more with every single aspect like Uncharted 2 did or Doom Eternal. To sum it up, enjoyable, but definitely not AAA title. So many folks said that game is underrated, frankly it's quite opposite for me.
