Developed by Bend Studio, Days Gone is the latest first-party exclusive game released for the PS4. It’s set in a post-apocalyptic version of Oregon, where protagonist Deacon St. John must fight zombies and humans alike. Here’s how to upgrade your health, stamina, and Focus in Days Gone.
How to Upgrade Health, Stamina, Focus in Days Gone
What They Do
Health and stamina should be pretty self-explanatory. Health determines the amount of damage you can take before Deacon dies, and it’s game over. You can restore your health by making use of bandages or medkits.
Stamina determines how long you can sprint for, and you’ll also need it to perform dodge rolls. This is pretty important, as if you’re caught without stamina when facing a large group of Freakers in Days Gone, things could get ugly very quickly.
Lastly, Focus is an attribute that’s only unlocked once you’ve purchased the Focused Shot skill. By pressing R3 when aiming a weapon, you’ll slow down time, allowing you to line up headshots easily.
How to Upgrade
If you want to upgrade any of these attributes, you’ll first need to look for a NERO checkpoint. These are easily identified by looking out for the grey ‘X’ icons on your world map.
Once there, all you need to do is restore power to the generator (usually by using a fuel can to top it up), and you’ll be able to enter the building.
Look out for a locked case with an injector inside, which will allow you to upgrade either your health, stamina, or Focus. Once you’ve made your choice, the attribute you chose will be upgraded permanently, and that’s all there is to it.
That’s all you need to know about how to upgrade your health, stamina, and Focus in Days Gone. Be sure to check our Days Gone guide wiki for more tips and information on the game.
