How to defeat the bear in Days Gone
The bear as in his natural state, a very strong animal and human strength cannot be matched with this brute, instead, you have to be crafty and keep as much distance as possible from yourself and the bear.
Make sure you have plenty of Molotov cocktails in your inventory as you will need them. Also if possible take down the freakers in the area before you go battle the bear as they will otherwise prove to be a nuisance.
When you plan to initiate the fight with the bear, make sure you throw a bottle of molotov cocktail beforehand which will keep affecting the bear as he will be burning up. Keep throwing Molotov every time the flames go out.
The second thing you have to make sure is to locate the white gas canisters and shoot them as soon as the bear approaches it, this will cause a lot of damage to the bear and will be easier to shoot it from a distance.
Always maintain a good distance from yourself and the bear and dodge and roll cover to get out of tricky situations.
You can hide and take cover from the bear, by going through narrow areas and doors. You could also hide inside buildings if the bear is chasing you. Alternatively, try to find a roof or a balcony to shoot at the bear as the bear will be helpless as you take it down.
The bear Rager in ‘Mayday! Mayday!’ mission
There is another bear in the main storyline that you have to encounter, but keep in mind that this bear is infected with the same virus as the freaker and this one can be a bit aggressive.
The same principles apply here as well, by this time you should have a good sniper rifle so as soon as you hit the bear with a Molotov. Take out your sniper and land as many shots as you can. This will drastically damage the mutated bear and it will be easier to kill it.
Here too you will be able to see a while gas canister, shoot at them when the bear is closeby to inflict maximum damage to the bear.
This is what you should keep in mind when you face an encounter with bears in Days Gone. Make sure you check out other Days Gone Tricks, Tips and Cheats.
