  • Different ranks indicate the difficulty level of activating that windmill.

Go For Side-Quests

  • Why do players complete side-quests? To earn additional XP and rewards.
  • In DL 2, these side-quests range from saving lives to helping a space chicken return to its spaceship. So, you are up against a pretty weird and strange range of side quests.
  • As you complete side quests, you will receive loot, blueprints, and points to increase your skill sets.
  • You will also receive an XP boost as you complete any of the side quests.

Earn Night-Time Bonus

  • Night bonus XP is the XP boost you receive as you complete any activity during the night.
  • That is because during these hours zombies become more dangerous and awry than the daylight.
  • In addition to the XP boost, you will also receive boosts to your skill sets.
  • But if you fail to survive the hordes, you will be unable to receive the night bonus for the rest of the night.

Loot Military AirDrop

  • Before you loot these military supplies, you will need to find them.
  • There are 26 military supply drops scattered across DL 2 and out of which 12 are underwater. Find and collect all the loot.
