How to unlock the Days Gone secret ending and see one hell of a twist

Did you know there's a Days Gone secret ending? When you’ve wrapped up practically everything there is to do in Days Gone: you’ve cleared out every Ambush Camp, you’ve hunted down every Horde, you’ve collected all the peculiar IPCA tech that’s so carelessly been left lying around… you can access the secret ending. And it’s something. There are, of course, spoilers below – so if you’re ready to explore what lies beyond the credits in Days Gone, read on at your own peril.

Okay, after you’ve seen off the crazy militia, fought the final battle and watched the credits roll you’ll be put back in the world to roam around finishing up loose ends. To trigger the secret ending you’ll just have to keep busy for a little while until the NERO scientist O’Brian messages you to meet up (fast travelling and completing side missions might speed things up here). After he calls, you'll start a mission called ‘There’s Nothing You Can Do’ which begins at the Old Pioneer Cemetery. Head over there, talk to O’Brian and prepare for the mother of all bombshells... 

Once that’s all played out you’ll unlock the crafting recipe for a secret weapon that uses all that Days Gone IPCA tech you've been collecting, and a Finding NERO custom Days Gone custom skin for your bike. You’ll also see a percentage completion but don’t sweat it if doesn’t hit 100% because it’s tied into other activities you’ve completed in the world.
