Unlocking the secret ending is much more complex than the normal ones. First, you’ll need to finish everything there is to finish in Days Gone, which means clearing out every Freaker Horde, all of the Ambush Camps, obtaining all the IPCA tech, etc. Having done that, overcome the game’s final battle and let the credits roll. Once that happens, you’ll return to the world to finish anything you missed.

Now, you must keep yourself occupied until the NERO scientist O’Brian contacts you for a meet-up, do side missions, or obtain any collectible you haven’t already.

After O’Brian calls, a new mission, “There’s Nothing You Can Do” will start at the Old Pioneer Cemetery. When you complete that mission, you’ll unlock the secret ending to see O’Brian revealing his and NERO’s secret to Deacon. For this mission, you’ll receive the following rewards:

  • Crafting recipe for Unknown NERO Weapon / IPCA stun gun
