There are 40 hordes to take down in Days Gone. It is mandatory that you destroy three of these hordes as part of the main story. Smaller hordes will only have about 50 Swarmers whereas the most dangerous hordes can be comprised of up to 500 Swarmers.

Although hordes have a specific location where they will hibernate during the day, at night they are out and about. Thankfully, once you've unlocked the Horde Killer Storyline, if you get close to the location of the horde, it will show you where they usually travel to.

The hordes will contain higher numbers of Freakers, depending on the area you're in. The southern region of the map has the most dangerous hordes. Our guide will include the number of Swarmers each horde contains with thanks to Reddit user DMarlow310 who collated this information.

Note: Keep in mind that our guide has a couple of light spoilers regarding hordes and the Horde Killer Storyline. Even though it doesn't go into too many details, it's best to wait until you've at least completed the I Don't Have a Pic mission before reading.

Updated December 7, 2021 by Ashely Claudino: Days Gone is still gaining lots of new players and some players have even gotten back to the game to try the New Game Plus option or the Survival mode games. Either way, it's always fun to go back and get rid of some hordes, especially since you can now reset hordes and redo them anytime. We've updated this guide and added a table at the end with all hordes ordered by size.

These are all the hordes you can clear throughout the various regions in the world map of Days Gone. You can reset hordes and other missions as many times as you want.

All Hordes By Size

If you'd like to tackle all the hordes you might want to do it by size since it's much easier to take down a 75 Freaker horde than a 300 Freaker horde and it helps build up confidence for the larger ones. Here are all hordes in the game according to their size.
