What are chapters in Dying Light 2?

Chapters are new content added to Dying Light 2 that includes a new NPC called Harper who is a former Nightrunner. Players can accept new bounties from Harper that will task them with hunting down various special infected. Killing special mutant infected will earn players two types of currency. The first one is Harper Tokens which can be used to purchase special equipment from Harper. The other one is Mutation Samples, which can be used to purchase Chapter Mission tickets which unlock timed trials where players' stealth, parkour, and combat skills are tested to the limit. But to use Chapter Mission Tickets, players will need to raise their Chapter Rank. Players can raise their Chapter Rank by completing bounties and earning Harper Tokens.

What are Weekly and Daily Bounties in Dying Light 2

Daily and weekly bounties are special missions that can be accepted from the new NPC Harper in Dying Light 2. Both bounties will task players with various tasks with the major difference being one will reset daily and the other weekly. Only 3 daily bounties and 1 weekly bounty can be accepted at a time. Daily bounties tend to task players with killing certain Infected such as Howlers or Bolters, or killing Infected in certain ways. Some daily bounties can even be completed by just completing other daily bounties. However weekly bounties are more advanced than daily bounties and come in three forms. The first weekly bounty requires players to simply hunt Special Infected at night to earn Mutation Samples. For the other two weekly bounties, players will need to do the following:

  • Weekly Bounty 2: Players will first need to raise their Chapter rank to rank four. After reaching rank four, players can complete the second weekly bounty by destroying Volatile Hives. Players can find Volatile Hives inside both completed GRE Quarantines and Dark Hollows.
  • Weekly Bounty 3: To complete the third weekly bounty, players will need to first raise their Chapter rank to eight. After doing so, the third weekly bounty can be completed by defeating Volatile Tyrants. Players can find a Volatile Tyrant in Harper's Elite Mission.
