Days Gone Infestation Nest Locations
However, do note that you can’t fast-travel through areas with these Infestation Nests. In order to unlock fast travel points and earn the Infestation Exterminator trophy, you’ve to clear these Infestation Nests in Days Gone. There are 12 Infestations and 18 Crier Nests, in total, that are part of the Infestation Exterminator Questline.
How to Destroy the Crier/Infestation Nests
There are three ways you can go about burning crier nests:
- Throw a fuel canister and shoot it.
- Throw a Molotov.
- Use Incendiary Bolts.
Amongst these, the third option would be your best bet as you get 3 Incendiary Bolts per Kerosene instead of only 1 Molotov. Incendiary Bolts are unlocked once you conquer 8 Ambush Camps.
As a rule of thumb, try burning out the nest during the daytime as you’ll find fewer Freakers roaming around.
The following are the locations of all the Infestation Nests in the game. Note that whenever you’ll get close to a nest, your character will be able to smell it, and it’ll also get marked on the map
