Steps to fight Sergeant Ryan in Dying Light 2.
Event steps.

To hunt down Sergeant Ryan you need to complete a few steps. These steps are fairly simple to complete. They are listed on the Techlandgg website, but I list them below for your convenience as well:

  1. Buy Mission ticket from Shen Xiu.
  2. Start a Chapter 2 mission and hunt down Sergeant Ryan.
  3. Receive rewards and find them in your in-game stash.

In order to buy a ticket from Shen Xiu you need to be at least Agent Rank 2. This means you will need to complete Bounties to earn XP if you haven’t done so already.

Event challenges.

Like other events in Dying Light and Dying Light 2 there are certain objectives you want to complete to earn the special event rewards. The objectives for this event center around how many times you defeat Sergeant Ryan. There are both individual and community objectives:

Individual Objectives

  • Kill Sergeant Ryan once to receive a Hunter’s Token.
  • Kill Sergeant Ryan 3 times to receive the RebarBar weapon.

Global Objective

  • Kill Sergeant Ryan 500,000 times to receive the Avocado Charm and 3x Hunter’s Token.
  • Every 50k kills above the global goal (500k) gives you +1 Hunter’s Token (max of 3+ rewarded).

You can track your objective progress through the Chapters tab when you press start. You will see a Community Event tile on the left side of the screen under Active Bounties. Here you can see both how you are doing individually and how the community is doing. Additionally progress will appear on your HUD when you complete objectives.

The participation and personal objective rewards appear in your in-game stash upon completing those objectives. The community reward (when it is unlocked) must be claimed through the TechlandGG website from the Events tab. Be sure you have an account and have linked it to your gaming platform for it to work.
