New duplication exploit for Dying Light discovered

1 min read


The latest patch for Techland’s Dying Light breaks the sneaky item duplication glitch we told you about recently. Of course people have found a new one already. Of course they have. Redditor BillSavage details a brand new exploit that has similar results – even if it is a little trickier to do.

He’s created a video showing how to do execute the exploit.

  • 1.) Open your inventory. You’re going to ‘drop’ any item that has a number beside it. Ex: throwing knives, Molotov, stuff like that.
  • 2.) Highlight that item! You push the right stick to drop it, BUT the moment you push the right stick, push the circle button and exit the menu. If you did it right, the small “how many items would you like to drop” menu will still be on the screen.
  • 3.) Wait for the menu to disappear. Then take the weapon you want to duplicate and throw it, at the ground or wall or whatever. Before it lands, bring your menu back up!
  • 4.) Your menu will still have the small ” how many do you want to drop” on the screen, however you can move the stick to select your weapon you are duplicating and drop it from your inventory.
  • 5.) Profit!

While I’d never condone breaking the game in this way – as you’re really only just ruining your own enjoyment – sometimes it’s fun to round about in games like an overpowered madman. I’ve only just started playing Dying Light, so I’m unable to give any sort of worthwhile appraisal, but the game certainly starts off pretty strong – and I’m rather keen to explore Harran’s rooftops as hordes of the undead try to munch on my ankles.

          Dont you worry your little soul, I did the same thing with Ninja Gaiden 2 that time with a save game editor back in the day.

          lol I used that cheat on harder missions just as they were about to over run my village. I was pretty piss poor with AOE

            lol, I played that game so damn much. It was pretty easy though, but my favourite memory was introducing my mom to it.

            She kept failing on the first Joan of Arc mission (AoE2) because she’d send the peasant head first into battle. LOL! She never stopped asking me why she was failing, and no matter how many times I explained it, she never got it. She stopped playing after failing for a few hours. XD

        This is true but sad!
        I really miss the fun aspect in alota games nowadays. Super Mario, Tekken, Need For Speed 2 player split screen. Games you could play in groups on one console and one tv without any internet connection.
        But maybe that’s just me

          Taking away couch co-op because everyone has interwebz was the worst decision ever. Diablo3, Dynasty Warriors and Borderlands are that much more fun because of this.

            The last time I played couch co-op was with my wife, but that had NOTHING to do with computer games…

            Wow, you have no idea how tempting it is to make a hooker joke. Or a prop joke. Or an 8th man joke.

            Beware the person who takes away THAT couch co-op

            Indeed, I’ll go all MDK on their assess

            **gasp** MDK – now that’s a game I’d love to make a comeback!!

            I see your point but that means I would have to go out and buy another console. The trend though is more SP games over anything else. It’s probably just something we’ll have to deal with?

            New Super Mario Bros U, Super Mario 3D World, Splatoon 😉

            Want couch co-op and MP? Wii U. That said, the new Borderlands collection comes with 4 player split screen, which is nice.

            I’ve been considering the WiiU, but with work and studies I’m not even gaming on the ps4 that much.
