As you play through Days Gone, the open world survival adventure exclusive to PS4, you’ll come across several encampments.
Each encampment is a safe haven, somewhere protagonist Deek can visit to refuel, restock ammo, and pick up new missions. For each camp, Deacon has a number of credits and a trust rating. Raising that trust level is key to unlocking new items at a camp’s gun store and mechanic – but how do you raise it?
Simply, your trust with an encampment is raised by running errands for them. Each camp is completely separate, so you’ll have a different trust rating and different credit amount with each one. To raise your trust level with a specific camp, you’ll want to do missions for that camp’s leader.
You’ll occasionally get messaged on your radio while you’re riding around Days Gone’s world from a camp leader, telling you there’s a new mission available. Returning to that camp and talking to the leader will add that mission to your list. Completing it will net you a bank of credits and an increase to your trust rating.
Other random side missions will sometimes increase your trust with a camp, too, even if it’s not a mission that a camp leader gave you. It’s worth checking your mission select screen for side missions that will improve your standing with a camp.
Finally, trading in bounties to an encampment will also increase your trust with that camp. Each bounty isn’t worth much by itself, but they soon add up – especially if you’ve taken down hordes – so remember to trade them in with the camp you’d like to build trust with.
