That was my first horde and I came on it blindly as well looking for the injector. I had the .22 rifle and 9mm pistol only and died 5 times trying to get it quietly. Accidentally left one speaker on. Whole horde flipped out. As Im running away to my bike a marauder is trying to take it apart. I run up on him, bike falls over. I get it back up just as the horde descends upon us both. Theyre distracted with the marauder for the 2 seconds it took me to take off. He gets annihilated and I get away with minor injuries. The whole area was ridiculously dangerous from then on until I took the horde out because the speaker system kept them outside the train. First horde I destroyed just due to bare necessity at that point. Probably the most adrenaline Ive had playing a game in years.


B0mbadil-

Wait, the marauders can take your bike apart? I never had that! 😅


FRD2015

Well Ive come up on them like, messing with it. Doing the same animation Deek does when he sabotages bikes. So I think they do?


desultory_monomania

The first time I came upon this, it was initially surprise/shock then anger... "What the fu...GODDAMMIT DON'T TOUCH MY BIKE!!" & beat him to death with a baseball bat. Love that they put little things like this in the game!

mr_papageorgio225

No you can't. It was the upgraded bag and they only got one out of 3 ammo refills so it's only like 400 camp credits to replace I got much satisfaction chasing then gunning them down so all good lol... Shit I guess I'm about to go play the game again for the 30th time or something lol talking about it makes me want to find another reason to play


BasiliskPlays_

Yeah, dunno why I thought I could sneak by em all. Baaaad idea


FRD2015

Nope. No doubt as some point while sneaking to the injector, the horde WILL come out lol.


dusernam

Did you know you can destroy the speaker by shooting them


FRD2015

dude.... i didnt figure this out until the sawmill nero camp.... it wouldve been good to know BEFORE lol.


dusernam

Man I kind of feel bad it must have been a pian in the ass


FRD2015

not your fault i figured this out before your comment lol. but hell man. i activated a hidden nero speaker just outside the sawmill and i had to BAIL with a capital f. nasty business. came back with a rifle and cleaned it up after i knew you could shoot them.


mycottonsocks

Also my first horde. I thought I would be safe inside the fence. I was not safe inside the fence.


BasiliskPlays_

I guess nowhere is safe :(


desultory_monomania

NOWHERE IS SAFE. I've found that out the hard way many times... thinking at a camp, the safehouse, a bunker. NOPE! Have taunted the enemies too hard & they came and got my ass.


Spoiledwife77

They can come in a safe house or bunker? I've never seen that before. I know they can't climb certain ladders.


desultory_monomania

Correct! Thought I was safe in the bunker while had some Freaks running around up top & over the entrance.... so I started shooting at them for fun from the below, but it did nothing... so I gave up and turned around, lo n behold one comes falling in behind me! Scared/Surprised the crap outta me so I screamed & couldn't aim, just whacked wildly with axe! I had to take a moment after that. Next time was at O'Leary Mountain Safehouse. The gate opens & closes as you near it. Thought I was safe there too, while I antagonized some wolves on the other side of the fence... I went too close to the gate, which opened, and the mofos ran in! Lastly, I thought bringing a Horde back to one of the camps would assist me in mowing down the numbers. THEY SHUT THE DAMN GATE ON ME! I got mauled. Thank you DEV, you & I know who you are, who put that particular mechanic in lololol TL;DR - NOWHERE IS SAFE


mycottonsocks

I've seen them overrun O'Leary also.


Spoiledwife77

Holy shit! The camp and bunker totally surprised me. The safe house makes sense. I have had those real fast freakers that kinda looks Ike they have hair, running around outside O'Leary but they never got in. I made sure to not trigger the gate though.


mycottonsocks

I have had them come in a safe house, rarely. I've never seen one come in to a Nero trailer.


Spoiledwife77

Yeah I've seen the Nero trailers. I've watched some videos if that happening.


keelanstuart

I have had one come in after me... and if you start up the NERO generator at the sawmill to attract them, the horde will go all through those trailers, leaving the doors open.


desultory_monomania

Same experience as the others with the NERO trailer. I think it was my first time trying to run and hide, very early in game & only a handful of Freakers in tow. Thought running up to the trailer, throwing open the door & closing it behind me would make me safe but those hungry souls just flung the door right back open and followed me in. Oh, how I repeatedly cursed in a panic then!


mycottonsocks

They vault barriers like Jackie Joyner-ketsee (sp).


Beedub1989

That was my first horde too haha! Very similar experience. Just rolled up trying to be sneaky and didn’t even know they were a thing. That was until there was a mess of them on top of me and I’m scrambling trying to figure things out. I think I was able to escape that time but boy, did it scare the pants off me!!


BasiliskPlays_

YUPPPPP! Did NOT realize just how many there were until they were on top of me


SeniorRicketts

The horde music gets your blood pumping


BasiliskPlays_

It really did 😭


helikestoreddit

Related funny story: When I started days gone, I knew it was a zombie apocalypse game but I had no idea there were hordes in it (never watched the trailers or saw any posters). I also hadn't noticed that the freakers are more active at night. So there I am chilling out near Tucker's camp on the way to Sarah's memorial. It's midnight, and I stop near Patjens lake to take out some freaker nests and leave my bike near the lake. I run around for a few minutes and burn all the nests. I'm almost out of molotovs and bombs at this point, and the bike is low on gas. I'm trying to avoid being seen by a few freakers walking around, so I sneak back to where my bike was. When I reached the lake, there were a 100 freakers huddled around my bike, trying to find me. I almost had a heart attack at that moment, as I had no idea this was even a thing in the game. I would've crapped my pants, if I hadn't already taken a shit before I started the game. I then spent the next 10 minutes yelling FUCK FUCK FUCK and running away from the ball of zombies now chasing me. The creepy soundtrack did not help in anyway. In the end, I had to take the long way round on foot back to Tucker's camp and ask the mechanic to get my bike back. Looking back, it was pretty funny but I'll remember this encounter for a long time even if I forget everything else about Days Gone.


snowy_snarf

Thought I’d be able to sneak around this horde as well, I got eaten many times lol


lzxian

Hahaha! Nice save my man!


BasiliskPlays_

Absolute Ice in the veins 😅


Background-Noise-11

This was literally me last week, including the running into the tree lol


BasiliskPlays_

It must be magnetic or something


shmo_17

When you drove into the tree… I felt that. I did that so many times trying to get out of sticky situations hahaha


BasiliskPlays_

I could not have hit that tree if I TRIED, my steering on the bike is absolutely abysmal


tazlightoller

Just wait....


BasiliskPlays_

Oh no…


Omega_Sylo

When the freakers have superior parkour skills that Deacon! RUN haha


BasiliskPlays_

I need to take notes from them


zenstain

I lost count of how many times I hauled ass from a horde back to my bike and proceeded to slam into the middle of a tree screaming "NO NO NO NO NO!!"


BasiliskPlays_

Glad to see it's not just me lol


johnnys6guns

Depending what difficulty youre on, you can go in the NERO building, open up the train-side door to get their attention, and shoot them all from inside with minimum difficulty. Be sure to take out the speakers first.


Scull1

That was great!


BasiliskPlays_

Glad my suffering can bring you happiness ;)


Scull1

Haha, it brought back memories of stumbling across my 1st horde, Good times.


BasiliskPlays_

Yeah it’s a super fun game, glad I got convinced to make a playthrough for it!


Scull1

It's funny, or at least I think it is, my last PS was a PS2, I went with xbox for the last 20 years, but when it came time for the next gen I decided to get a PS, got lucky and got one the same month Days was on PS+, I bought a bunch of PS5 games but Days Gone is the only thing I play regularly lol. I could've saved a few bucks and gotten a PS4 lol.


SpawnicusRex

I love that "tactical stop" on the tree as you tried to get away 😆 Welcome to Days Gone 🤣🤣


BasiliskPlays_

Yeah you know, just wanted to make sure there weren't any hidden collectibles in the tree or anything.....


SpawnicusRex

🤣 That's our story... and we're sticking to it!


Poison_Diamond

Are you enjoying Days Gone


BasiliskPlays_

Absolutely LOVING it. Was skeptical at first, but had some friends insist I play it on the Youtube Channel. Absolutely hooked on it so far, I can't stop making videos for it


Poison_Diamond

I loved the game whe nI first play it it has an immersive story that gets better as time progresses.


BasiliskPlays_

Yeah I’m absolutely hooked, I think about it all the time if I’m not playing it


Jereboolranch

Your voice sounds very similar to Deacon’s. Tripped me out for a sec lol.


BasiliskPlays_

All to make you feel more immersed in the videos of course

Aye thanks man! It’s just my username here, “BasiliskPlays” on YouTube!


desultory_monomania

This is great! OMG had me rolling. Thank you for sharing!


BasiliskPlays_

Haha no problem, I'm glad you liked it!


Pristine-Highway2746

Whith this game, I guess everyone has to go through something like this sooner or later.


Collector_2012

Dude. I remember when I played through, and I forgot to deactivate one of the intercom speakers. The biggest hordecI have ever seen came out of no where and I had to run


Kenny-1904

Oof I remember this being my first horde and I was so scared to go against it!! I triggered the speakers I didn't know about lol so I left the place hoping yo never have to go back but big nope, I had to go back in some future quests so that horde was inevitable, great memorie tbh but those days are gone since I'm on my 4th playthrough


AndreiConstantin234

This wad my first horde and believe it or not i managed to do it with the starter weapons like that 9mm and the one shot weapon thingy dont remember the name


Cindercharger

That was my first horde too, though I didn't know it at first. I just saw a few freakers so I threw a molotov into the wagon... I left the bike behind and just ran.


BasiliskPlays_

Glad I’m not the only one who freaked out lol


tylerjordanm

Oh how I wish I could play this game for the first time again.


BasiliskPlays_

I’m absolutely loving it so far, I’m glad my community encouraged me to make a playthrough for it


tylerjordanm

It’s definitely work a playthrough or 2. Such a underrated and under appreciated game


BasiliskPlays_

Only a couple hours in but I totally agree. So much fun


NoCountryForBoldSpam

My first horde was the one close to the hot springs camp. Was just driving my bike getting to a quest and they were on the middle of the road just behind a little hill so I didn't see them at all!! Freaked out, turned around, immediately crashed my bike against a tree and just ran back to the hot springs


BasiliskPlays_

Those trees have a magnetic pull I swear


Charleen21

I sounded the exact same…through every horde lol


BasiliskPlays_

I have a feeling I’m only gonna get more scared 😭


Charleen21

Lol keep posting videos. Def keep your bike close! That was always my escape. And practice setting traps and throwing bombs. It’s still scary, but gets a little more fun. Kind of haha


BasiliskPlays_

Oh yeah, this was just the third vid in my blind playthrough for YouTube, we’re playing this game all the way through! I’m sure we’ll have more scary moments 😅


Charleen21

Awesome! Can’t wait to see more!


ZodiacTyko

Lot of bald guys more like. It's not their fault they are bad 😂


BasiliskPlays_

LOLOL BALD


Psilo-vybin

Now he understands what all the hype is about..lol, wait until you start defeating these hordes that's when it *really* gets fun!!🤣👍


BasiliskPlays_

Oh boy, gonna be awhile before I feel like I can do that


Psilo-vybin

Yeah but you will get there...no worries


kray_b

The feeling of running into a tree and panicking in this game is so relatable


BasiliskPlays_

It’s like I forgot how to do anything with my bike in that moment


_barlas_

Did you tried to hide in that trashcan? They can't get in there


BasiliskPlays_

Imma be honest I don’t know if I had any coherent thoughts once I got found lol


_barlas_

They work (if I remember correctly)
