Faruk Korkmaz, a cleaning product salesmen who asks Crane to escort him to the Tower.

Random Encounters are events that occur in Dying Light. Kyle Crane will receive an alert to a random encounter nearby while traversing the streets and alleys of Harran. Often, random survivors will need rescuing from infected or thugs. However, other times Crane will encounter survivors that will tell a story or provide him with information, or request an escort to safety.

Known encounters Edit

Lone survivor against infected Edit

Crane will be alerted a lone survivor either trapped inside a secure building or being mauled in the open. Should Crane rescue the survivor, they will provide a reward. A survivor caught in the open will then run to a nearby building; it is possible for them to be killed by infected following the encounter.

Two runners against infected Edit

Crane will encounter two runners attempting to fight a small horde of infected. Should Crane assist them, one will provide a reward before they both run off, often time in different directions. Both runners may be killed by infected following the encounter.

Taken hostage Edit

Crane will encounter a group of thugs holding two survivors hostage. He may kill the thugs and rescue the hostages, one of whom will provide a reward. The two then run off, often in different directions, and may be killed by infected.
