The city in Dying Light 2 is ran largely by three different faction: the Peacekeepers, Renegades and Survivors. Each faction offers its own rewards, and because your faction choice only has a relatively minimal impact on the overall storyline, your decision will likely come down to which faction’s rewards you prefer to receive and which one you prefer to join from a role-playing perspective.

Here’s a breakdown of each faction in Dying Light 2 and their benefits.

Dying Light 2 Factions Guide: Peacekeepers

The Peacekeepers present themselves as The City’s elite police squad, using an iron fist to keep the surviving citizens safe. They are the game’s “good” faction.

The Peacekeepers will install military-style barracks, install traps, and offer both melee and long range weapons, which can definitely prove useful in big conflicts.

Dying Light 2 Factions Guide: Survivors

With a nomadic, adaptive mentality, the Survivors are concerned with keeping their comrades safe and fleeing the Infected instead of actively getting involved in combat. They are the game’s “neutral” faction.

The Survivors install parkour tools, such as air vents to help you navigate the rooftops and avoid Infected. This can be fun and very useful to avoid conflict.

Dying Light 2 Factions Guide: Renegades

In direct conflict with the Peacekeepers, the Renegades pride themselves in causing chaos and eliminating anyone that gets in their way. They are the game’s “bad” faction

The Renegades set up lethal traps that will destroy anything that comes near – humans included. They also have an arsenal of firepower just waiting for you to make use of.

There isn’t really a better faction to choose, it’s ultimately up to preference. Besides the benefits listed above, the only real differences a faction makes is in certain cutscenes and dialogue. Let us know what faction you chose to join in Dying Light 2.
