If you are playing Dying Light 2 for some time now, you may have become familiar with crafting supplies. They are used for a number of reasons inside the game. You will also notice that you need to upgrade them at some point.

That is where this post can help you. I will show you some neat tips and tricks to farm Uncommon Infected Trophies in Dying Light 2. Since these trophies are used exclusively to upgrade the crafting supplies, these tips will come in quite handy!

How to farm uncommon infected trophies in Dying Light 2

The only way to get crafting supplies is to defeat special infected. After you have defeated them, they will drop the supplies in 3 different rarities:

  • Uncommon.
  • Rare.
  • Unique.

The rarity obviously depends on the infected special you loot it from in the first place. And just to be clear, you will need a tonne of these trophies to do some decent upgrades to the crafting supplies.

I know that the description says “uncommon” but believe me, they are not easy to get, if you play the game normally. The actual trophies are dropped from two enemy types:

  • Virals.
  • Howlers.

The reason I say that these are rare to get is that you have to hunt for these two factions separately, and usually the game will indicate you to avoid them. To get uncommon trophies, do the following:

  • Go out at night.
  • Find a howler in the Bazaar or anywhere near.
  • Slay them as soon as you can.
  • Now hold the “search” button over their body to loot them properly.

Now that you are done with the looting part, you should start running. That is because the Howler will “howl” alerting the faster factions, also known as Virals. They have a fast movement like I said, so be wary of that.

Now that you have their attention, keep running inside the Bazaar, until you find a narrow alley, where a truck should be parked. If not, you can select any narrow pathway, with a place to get on. All you need to do now is bash and slay any viral that starts to climb.

Once you are done with them, and you have a pile of bodies to loot from, you can start the tedious process of looting all the uncommon infected trophies. This process can be slow since there can be a lot of bodies to loot from.

But as far as I have seen, this is one of the top methods to loot uncommon infected trophies in Dying Light 2. Also, this is kind of a hassle-free experience and you can repeat this process to get more trophies.

Alternate Method

If you find the above method tedious to do, you can also run towards a UV Lamp. Keep the chase level low to avoid any unwanted difficulties. Stand near the UV Lamp and you will see that the Virals will get stunned.

Bash and slay them from there, until you have a heap of bodies to loot and search from.
