How to Get Nero Injectors in Days Gone

Players diving into Days Gone will find a plethora of things to do as they explore the open Oregon countryside as Deacon St. John. One of many items that players will come across are Nero Injectors. This guide will tell you everything you need to know about Nero Injectors in Days Gone, as well as everything you need to do to get your hands on more.

How to Get Nero Injectors in Days Gone

Before we dive too deeply into how you get more Nero Injectors, let’s talk a little bit about these important items. There are thirty Nero Injectors hidden around the open-world that makes up Days Gone. These items, when used, will boost one of the player’s base stats, including: Focus, Stamina, and Health. There are ten Nero Injectors for each stat, which means players will be able to upgrade their core skills a total of ten times throughout their journey in Days Gone.

Nero Injectors can mostly be found in two different types of locations you will visit in Days Gone. The first locations you can expect to find these consumables are in Nero Checkpoints. These also act as the game’s basic fast travel points, which you’ll probably spend quite a bit of time exploring and clearing out as you play through Days Gone. You can also find Nero Injectors in Nero Research Stations. These are a bit more difficult to find at times, as the Nero Checkpoints are mostly marked on the map for ease of access. Another thing to note is that Nero Injectors will often emit a red flashing light as well as make a noise when you are near them, so be sure to keep an ear out for that as well.
