Dying Light 2 Skill Tree Explained

Skill Trees are a way of developing your character's skill set in Dying Light 2. Everything that we know so far about each skill tree is from this reveal trailer. You'll level them up by gaining experience, before assigning Skill Points to unlock parts of each tree. So far, we've seen Combat and Parkour Skill Trees. These cover the combat mechanics like special attacks, as well as movement boosts like being able to jump farther.

Combat Skill Tree

The Combat Skill tree appears to have 24 individual skill options and 7 main branches to follow. There have been three different skills shown so far. They are:

  • Block Charge: When blocking, charge at an enemy in front of you and knock them to the ground. It seems that if this is executed from a height or at a good angle, it can result in the termination of that enemy.
  • Perfect Parry: Parry at the last minute to stagger an enemy. While staggered, you can regain the advantage in the fight.
  • Ground Pound: This skill allows you to perform a powerful attack (hitting the ground) while in mid-air.

  • Far Jump: This skill allows you to spring off of any obstacle and jump further/
  • Bash: Bash through obstacles and enemies without stopping (basically, you can charge your way out of trouble)
  • Tic Tac: This skill allows you to run alongside horizontal surfaces. An essential skill for getting around The City.
