Ambush Camps in Days Gone: How Do You Clear Them?
Ambush camps in Days Gone are basically encampments filled with enemies. They are marked on your map in-game, accessed by hitting the PS4 or PS5’s touchpad. The main objective of ambush camps is to clear them off all enemies and find the secret bunker where Deacon will be able to restock on equipment, find a map that will reveal highlight some important locations, and in some cases learn new crafting recipes.
