Dying Light 2 “Can’t use, enemies nearby” error fix

Someone, somewhere, is watching...

Nothing kills immersion in a game more than a big, fat, game-breaking bug. That’s why when you end up with a “Can’t use, enemies nearby” error splashed across your screen while trying to perform an action in Dying Light 2, it’s a real bummer.

How to workaround the “Can’t use, enemies nearby” bug in Dying Light 2

This error may start to happen at any point in your game, and once it does, it can be a complete soft lock. You may see it when you’re trying to talk to a key NPC, open a door, or in many other situations in Dying Light 2. I expect that if you’ve been dealing with this recurring issue in the game, you’ve probably been restarting your game.

Currently, restarting your game is the most tried-and-tested method to fix the issue. It’s a real ballache, though, and may end up losing you a ton of progress. This method will sometimes play you only a few seconds from where you are, but more often than not, you will lose a lot of time. Here are a few things you can try other than restarting your Dying Light 2.

Check the area for enemies

This sounds stupid, but sometimes there is an enemy you just haven’t spotted stuck somewhere. The game is notoriously buggy, so even if you have killed a hoard of zombies or bandits, there may still be one trapped somewhere. Try listening for them, as they could be clipped through something. This could fix the can’t use, enemies nearby error in Dying Light 2.

Go to sleep

Turn the game off, switch off your console, and get into bed. Now, go to sleep. You no longer have a problem. Also, as another option, you can find a safehouse in Dying Light 2, any will do, then go to sleep. When you wake up, go back to the spot in Dying Light 2 where you had the “can’t use, enemies nearby” error and try again.

Call in a friend

One fix for the “can’t use, enemies nearby” error is to call in a friend. The fix in Dying Light 2 can work in two ways: you can either join someone else’s session or have them join yours and press whatever button it is you’re having a problem with.

That’s right, you’ll have to ask someone else to come into your game and open a door for you. Either that or you go into someone else’s and have fun with their bugs instead.
