Days Gone Ambush Camp locations: Where to find all the Ripper and Marauder camps

Days Gone ambush camp locations give you a break from offing Freakers and the shambling undead. The post-apocalyptic wilds of Oregon are also home to some hostile human enemies, too. It wouldn’t be a bleak commentary on humanity without some thoroughly unpleasant humans roaming around, scavenging what they can, after all. Locating and ‘liberating’ an Ambush Camp will reward you with new icons on your map that can lead to new resources, story beats, crafting recipes and more besides. Weeding out all these bandits also reduces the chances of being clothes-lined or sniped off your bike as you ride around the Days Gone world. There are 14 of these hostile abodes in the game, so read on below to learn about all of the Days Gone Ambush Camp locations.
