Days Gone contains 37 Hordes. This guide shows all Days Gone Horde Locations. They are the largest crows of Freakers in the game. Clearing out the Hordes awards you with money and trust for the camp in the region. It also gives you a lot of XP to buy new skills. This makes hordes the ideal side activity to unlock all 45 skills and reach trust level 3 with all camps.
After the story they all get marked on the map automatically. By then you’ll also have better gear and skills. It’s best to keep them until the endgame.
The hordes get bigger with each region. This means the first and second region have relatively small hordes. The third region has medium-sized hordes. The fifth and sixth region have the largest hordes consisting of hundreds of Freakers.
The best way to take down hordes is with the Chicago Chopper gun. You can buy it from the 5th camp “Wizard Island”. It’s an Assault Rifle that kills Freakers in a single hit and has a lot of ammo. Grenades and other explosives are also great to reduce bigger hordes. You can buy grenades from merchants in camps with high trust.
Below the general horde areas are marked on the map (how they are marked automatically after the story). Do note that hordes move around. At day they will hide in a cave. At night they will roam around. This means they’re never at a fixed place so consider these general spawn zones. At night just drive around and increase the volume to hear them from afar. At day look for cave entrances.
