Nero Research Sites

In order to open up these Checkpoints or Research Sites in Days Gone, you’ll need to fuel a generator and then head inside.

Sometimes, you’ll also require a fuse for which you’ll have to interact with the fuse box that will provide you with some hints about the whereabouts of the fuse.

You will also find the Nero research Sites inside the caves most of the time. You can also find it near the campsites. You will need at least the first level of Nitrous upgrade and any acceleration upgrade which is available for accessing some Nero Research Sites.

Once you find these research sites you can see them on the map and they will disappear after you use the Nero injector. They do not serve as a fast travel point like the Nero checkpoints.
