Like a lot of recent AAA open world games (Red Dead Redemption 2 springs to mind), Bend’s Days Gone does have fast travel as an option but never makes much of a fuss about it. You’re clearly expected to explore the desolate world rather than zipping around and potentially missing a few things, but some of us don’t have all the time in the world to get ganged up on by Freakers at every turn.

Fast travel in Days Gone requires to jump through a couple of hoops: you can’t just teleport to wherever you want at any point. Here’s what you need to do to unlock fast travel to different encampments in Days Gone.

First off, you need to ensure that you have cleared out nearby infestation nests for wherever you want to fast travel to. These nests are visible on the map (middle button, R1) as red blips, which you will need to clear all off; there’s always a minimum of three. The nests look like giant bird nests that tend to grow out of rooms or even large vehicles, such as trucks. You have to use fire to get rid of these nests: molotovs (which can be easily crafted) work the best, but throwing a fuel can and then shooting it will do the same trick.

Once you have cleared out all nearby infestation nests, you will have made progress towards your nest exterminator challenge and also now have access to fast travel to the nearest encampment, such as Hot Springs or Copeland’s Camp.

On a similar note, you can also unlock places to fast travel to by liberating bandit camps, which simply entails killing all the bad guys in an old camp. These places will also house bunkers, in which you can find maps to highlight all nearby POIs.

However, there are still come caveats before you are able to fast travel in Days Gone. As the game rationalises it as Deacon hopping on his bike, you need to be near it to use fast travel.

In addition, you must have enough fuel to make the journey: the longer the distance, the more fuel you will need. Therefore, if you have been out exploring, you may not be able to just fast travel back to an encampment unless you pick up a fuel can or make a stop at a fuel pump. Your HQ (where you leave Boozer right at the start) has an endless supply of gas, so keep that in mind.
