Looking for the full Dying Light 2 skill tree? Here is every skill you can unlock for both the combat and prakour

Dying Light 2 Skill Tree: An Infected can be seen jumping towards Aiden.

The original Dying Light’s skill trees were known for helping flesh out the game’s combat and parkour and with Dying Light 2 that has only been enhanced with more varied skills across both aspects of the game.

The full skill trees cover everything from giving you the ability to slide, to allowing you to block projectiles, to enhancing your climbing abilities, and more. However, some of these skills are found quite a way down the skill trees so you will need to make a few purchases before you can unlock them.

While this article will cover the two Dying Light 2 skill trees: one for Parkour Skills and one for Combat Skills, there are some skills you will want to try and purchase early. For Dying Light 2’s best skills check out our guide covering the eight skills you should try and buy as soon as possible.
