Dying Light 2: Where to Find All GRE Anomalies & Locations

If you're looking for all of the GRE Anomalies and their locations in Dying Light 2, this guide will show you where to find them.

Dying Light 2 GRE Anomalies are great sources of combat experience. If you’re looking to upgrade your health and stamina, they’re also where you can get a handful of Inhibitors. There are 11 locations in total across Old Villedor and the Central Loop.

GRE Anomalies are located in a cordoned-off GRE area, surrounded by high fences and gates with barbed wire, and they can only be accessed at night. Inside, these areas, you’ll fight a Revenant, a “super-powered” Infected that flits around the area and can resurrect other Infected, such as Virals, to fight alongside it. 

Just like Windmills, GRE Quarantines, and Electrical Substations (to name a few), every GRE Anomaly has a difficulty Rank between 1 and 5. You can see this Rank by pulling up your map and hover over any of the locations. The Rank will appear in the top left portion of the card that appears on the left side of the screen. 

Each GRE Anomaly rewards you with combat experience that goes to increasing your overall combat level, as well as 2 Inhibitors each. Further, you’ll get two trophies or achievements along the way:

  • It Wasn’t That Hard, Was It?: Defeat your first GRE Anomaly.
  • Revenants: Defeat all GRE Anomalies. 

Aside from all of that, these locations are great places to pick up all kinds of goodies, ranging from Immunity Boosters to legendary weapons and high-level gear pieces. 

Here are all of the GRE Anomaly locations in Dying Light 2, separated into regions and in order of Rank within those zones.
