There is absolutely nothing fairly like chopping up a zombi- sorry, Contaminated, with a machete. I’m not pretty sure if the glee comes from my new aversion to (cough) viruses or if it’s basically the satisfaction of lopping the head off of a creature in a hazmat fit. But, it feels cathartic in a way – and significantly greater in Dying Light-weight 2: Keep Human than it did in its predecessor.
The Contaminated assault is arguably unprovoked I am merely minding my possess organization, on a aspect quest that was only intended to see me lights a memorial candle to shell out respects to March Madness (no, not the basketball a person), a mission that subtly hints why I am utilizing a machete instead than a gun to knock these creeps again to hell – or where ever they came from.

I clamber on to the roof of a nearby deserted bus, using in the chaotic aftermath with satisfaction and reeling from enjoyment. Now, time to get again to the primary quest.
