Dying Light 2‘s Inhibitors are important items to collect in the world as they boost both your health and stamina, making you stronger in fights, able to take on tougher activities, and survive in endgame brawls. Each upgrade costs three Inhibitors.
But, for the most part, these Inhibitors are not shown on the map, apart from when you unlock all the Dying Light 2 Nightrunner Tools and have the GRE Detector. But even then, you need to activate radio towers and zoom in on the map to see them. This isn’t possible until you get to the third act of the game, so for the rest of the time you are left to parkour around Villedor, hoping to stumble upon a GRE crate.
We have found all the Dying Light Inhibitor locations in both Old Villedor and the Central Loop, so you don’t have to go hunting them down.
