Days Gone Horde locations: Where to find all the hordes of Freakers

The Days Gone hordes were one of the biggest selling points for the game when it launched in 2019. Massive, intimidating hordes of the undead, moving about in packs of hundreds – if not thousands – these Freaker Hordes are practically bosses in and of themselves. There’s an impressive 40 Hordes roaming around the map in Days Gone, and they are remarkably tough to take down. We’ve got a guide below listing the location of each undead mass, but be warned: these guys aren’t easy to take down. We’ve got specific insight on how to take down Hordes if you need that.

It should be noted that the list below notes where each horde sleeps during the day: at night, it may be harder to locate these roaming piles of flesh, since they’ll be on the move. Additionally, some of the Hordes only appear once the credits roll on the story. There’s also three hordes that you fight as part of the deal, too, so we haven’t got locations for them since they don’t appear on the map.
