Inhibitors or Inhibitor Containers in Dying Light 2 are probably the most important items that you’ll find while exploring. These are tied to your character’s progression, and the only way you could actually increase your stats. Here’s our Dying Light 2 Inhibitor Containers guide to help you with all of these important collectibles. We’ll have a lot of facets to discuss since these things are everywhere.

Dying Light 2 Inhibitor Container locations guide
How do these Inhibitors work in Dying Light 2?
Simply put, you’ll need three Inhibitors to level up either your health or stamina. Dying Light 2 has a total of 126 Inhibitors, which means you can level up those stats 42 times. Moreover, each time you level up your health or stamina, your immunity timer also increases. This mechanic represents your character’s resilience against the virus when it’s nighttime or when exploring interiors.
But which one is more important: health or stamina?
- Stamina – I would suggest prioritizing stamina not just because you’ll get to use more parkour skills, but also because it’s used in a lot of other mechanics. The Paraglider uses stamina, as does the Grappling Hook. Getting to the top of Windmills, finding Military Airdrops, activating Radio Towers, or just running around to survive Night Chases all rely on your athletic abilities.
- Health – However, you can still level up your health a bit, at least until you reach a threshold that lets you use all the combat skills. For instance, Serial Shot requires 220 health and Smash Jump needs 240 health. If you’ve already hit 240 HP, then you can stop there. Alternatively, you could increase it a bit more for added survivability.
How do I detect those Inhibitor Containers?
If there are Inhibitor Containers in the immediate vicinity in Dying Light 2, an AI voice will notify you:
- “Inhibitor Container detected” – This means the item is roughly 30 to 40 meters away.
- “Inhibitor Container nearby” – This means the item is around 20 meters or closer to where you are. Once you ping your surroundings with the “Q” key, the Inhibitor icon will show up on your screen if you’re close enough.
Likewise, an icon at the bottom-left corner of your screen will also show you how far away it is. Later on in the game, you’ll even get to complete the Broadcast mission. This has you activating a Radio Tower. From that point onwards, all Radio Towers that you activate will reveal the locations of Inhibitors in nearby districts.
Okay, I’m ready. Let’s get started!
To clarify, this Dying Light 2 guide series on Inhibitor Containers is split up into several parts. This specific article will only discuss the ones that are found during missions and those that you’ll stumble upon while free-roaming. I did link separate guides for various locations, as these also have Inhibitor Containers. You can refer to the pages below for the parts that you need help with:
- Mission locations – These are the Dying Light 2 Inhibitors I found while completing main story missions.
- Free-roam locations – These are the ones that I discovered while exploring Villedor (i.e., not tied to a specific mission and no other objectives/points of interest nearby).
- Metro Stations/fast travel points – Fast travel points that you take over will spawn an Inhibitor next to your newly-furnished sleeping area.
- Infrastructure Facilities: Water Towers and Electrical Stations – Some of these facilities tend to have an Inhibitor.
- GRE Anomalies – You’ll obtain two Inhibitors in Dying Light 2 from each encounter location.
- GRE Quarantine Buildings – These dangerous locales have four Inhibitors each.
- Radio Towers – Certain towers may have additional Inhibitors, too.
- Military Airdrops – The airdrops may contain Inhibitors or have a crate nearby.
- Sunken Airdrops/Underwater Containers – There are several Inhibitor Containers found underwater.
