Days Gone Horde locations - where to find all the hordes of Freakers

Days Gone Horde locations

Finding Days Gone Horde locations is the best and worst bit of the game. On the one hand you get to see the iconic Freaker hordes - hundreds of feral Freakers pouring from caves and buildings to try and reach you. But, on the other hand, you have to deal with hundreds of feral Freakers pouring from caves and buildings to try and reach you. 

It's spectacular sight though and there are 40 separate Days Gone hordes to be found on the map. Finding them is one thing though, dealing with these Days Gone enemies can be brutally difficult if you're not prepared and packing plenty of firepower. Our guide to the Days Gone Horde locations includes a map to help you find all them all, while out separate guide on how to take down a horde in Days Gone will help you survive the moment. 

The Days Gone Horde maps below detail where you can find the hordes when they're asleep during the day. At night the leave these spots and roam, so plan accordingly. Some hoards can be easier at night if they wander past hazards and bottle necks, while others are better to take out during the day when you can attack them while they're trapped. There’s three hordes you fight as part of the story that don't appear on the map as you have to 'find' them.You also can't find all of the Days Gone Hordes until you've finished the game, as some only appear after the credits have rolled.
