Dying Light 2, like any great RPG out there, is a game that challenges your morality and asks you to make difficult choices to determine the future of your experience. Right from the start of the open-world portion of the game, you’re forced to make difficult calls that will have adverse effects on later stages of the game. At the end of your time in Old Villedor, it’s revealed that the killer of Lucas is in fact Hakon, who was ordered by Waltz to execute. He was merely hiding it, though he can’t hide it anymore as he’s shot by an unknown sniper. This leaves two options to you in Dying Light 2: help Hakon by going after the sniper, or leave him to die for his deception. In this guide, we explain what each option will do for the remainder of your playthrough.
Should You Help Hakon or Leave Him to Die in Dying Light 2?
Choosing to help Hakon will have you handle the sniper while berating him for any advice he chooses to give you, understandably so given the situation. Once you finally make your way to the sniper, you meet a character you’ll become familiar with for the remainder of the game, but of course fail to kill her. With her dealt with, you tell Hakon he’s safe now but to not contact any further. If you go down this route, Hakon will show up later in the game near the ending and will have a hand in the final decision of the game, making one option clearly better over the other.
Leave Him to Die
Choosing to leave Hakon will simply see Aiden walk away, resigning him to whatever fate the sniper leaves him. Presumably he does die as mentioned later in the game, but he won’t be able to help you come that final moment and will leave your Aiden with a somewhat tough decision for his own sake. If you ask me, I’d go with the first option, but I wouldn’t blame you for wishing death upon Hakon.
