Days Gone All Ambush Camp Locations

Where are all of the Days Gone Ambush Camps?
Silencing the watchers makes taking out an ambush camp much easier.

Where do you draw the line after society falls apart?

The world as we knew it has collapsed, and it’s been 730 days since it’s been gone. While some have banded together in the hopes of rebuilding some small modicum of civilization, too many others that have gathered together have decided that just taking is the easier way to survive. These ambush camps litter the Broken Road you must travel. They must be dealt with, for the safety and peace of mind of all.

Each region in the Oregonian backwoods of Days Gone has a number of these camps. It’ll be up to you to find them on your own and make what’s left of the world a little safer.
