Days Gone contains 6 Colonel Garret’s Speeches. They are a type of Collectible. Unlike most collectibles you don’t actually have to pick them up in the world. Instead they are given to you for side story missions in the 5th region “Crater Lake” and the 5th camp “Wizard Island”. They are all obtained from side quests that become available as you progress in the story. So just play through the story and you’ll get them all.
The first one unlocks after main mission “I Know the Look”. Then you get a radio call from Kouri and he tells you that the Colonel gives an informal speech at dawn every day and tells you to attend. The other speeches become available as you progress in the story. You can’t just sleep and wait for the next speech. You must progress the game because the Colonel talks about specific story events in each speech. These speeches are marked with a mission icon on the map and count towards storyline “Law and Disorder”. Furthermore, it doesn’t matter what time it is because when you walk into the mission icon it will just skip to the correct time.
Make sure you check the world map after every main mission to see if a new speech has popped up (once you received the initial call by Kouri about this). The icons all pop up in the same place by the gallows.
None of them are missable. If you didn’t participate in a speech during the story, you can still find the speeches in form of voice recordings AFTER the story! They can be picked up from the tent at the top of the hill in Wizard Island camp (follow the path uphill from the gallows where the speeches happened). In the tent at the top you can pick up the recorders that have the speeches you didn’t view during the story.
Below is a list of all speeches and the story missions during which you get them.
- Welcome: Story Mission “We Do Not Discriminate”
- The Ark: Story Mission “We Must Fill the Ark”
- The War Against Freaks: Story Mission “Throw Them Into the Furnace”
