To Kill or Not to Kill is a Side Mission (Side Quest) in Dying Light 2. This walkthrough will guide you through all objectives of the To Kill or Not to Kill side mission.
Region: Central Loop
Sub-Region: New Dawn Park (guy sitting at bar)
Quest Giver: Paul
Requirement: Have NOT activated Metro: Newalls Crossing (in New Dawn Park) & finished Main Quest 11: A Place to Call Home – if you activated the Metro the quest will be missed. This would also make you miss the quest-related Collectible – Memento #75: Avery’s Map. For some players it is there as soon as they arrive at the Fish Eye Canteen (after Main Quest 11), for others it has appeared after the story when assigning the VNC Tower to Frank during Main Quest 16: Broadcast, and for some the quest simply never appears. This may be buggy. It’s recommended you keep checking for this quest after every main mission after having arrived at Fish Eye Canteen in the story. If you never get the quest you can join other people’s co-op game until you find someone who has the quest available.
Reward: +2250 Combat XP, +750 Parkour XP, +1000 Money

Go to the Incubate building to find the salvage team
The building you need to go to is 200 meters west of the quest giver.
Go upstairs and enter the door. You can press to scan for red footprints inside the building, they lead you to the door. It should also get marked with a precise waypoint marker. Behind the door talk to the woman.
Search the meeting location
Head to the meeting location marked on the map, seen in the image below:
Head inside the skyscraper, you can climb into one of the lower floors. There you find a corpse. Pressing will highlight a red item under the corpse and some red footprints nearby.
Interacting with the corpse unlocks Collectible – Memento #75: Avery’s Map. You will automatically pick it up here as part of the quest, no way to miss it.
Look for Fitz in Francis’s camp
Head to Francis’s camp in Downtown, enter the skyscraper there. You will encounter some bandits, kill all of them.
Eliminate the Bandits
Defeat all Bandits at Francis’s camp, inside the skyscraper. In one of the upper floors you can find Collectible – Tape #32: For Alice #3. It’s one floor below where you find Francis. Go upstairs to locate Francis.
Talk to Francis
After defeating all bandits, go to the top floor to find Francis and talk to him. When you get to pick dialogues choose “I don’t believe you” > “If he’s dead, you’re next”.
Look for Fitz at Avery’s camp
Avery’s camp is also in Downtown, just 100 meters east. You can glide over there from where you talked to Francis. Alternatively you can climb up the red parts on the outer wall of the building. Be warned, there are lots of human enemies at this location!
You need to get further upstairs. Climb the red walls in the north of the camp.
Up there you can enter a door to find Avery. Choose dialogue “No deal [Fight]”. Defeat him!
Kill Avery and his guard
Kill both of them.
Search the body
Search the body after the fight.
Report back to Francis
Return to Francis where you met him earlier and talk to him.
Kill Francis and his men
After your talk you get attacked by Francis. Defeat him and his 2 bodyguards.
