During the two-week Zombie Hunt event in Dying Light, the city of Harran will be terrorized by the undead GRE operatives whose bodies have become mutated and extra resilient due to a special "GREcipe" boost potion. As a result, Crane is tasked with rescuing the endangered survivors and retrieving extra supplies, with the player having the opportunity to receive in-game rewards – including a blueprint for their very own GREcipe potion – based on their success. The new Harran Tactical Unit Bundle is deployed to deal with high-risk situations and fight zombies in a special unit style. Not just in appearance, but with the right tools. The Harran Tactical Unit Bundle is available to purchase for for $2.99 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and contains the following items:

  • "Protector" Armor Skin, which boosts movement during night

  • "Guardian" Rifle with burst fire mode

  • "Dispatcher" Shotgun

  • "HyperArgument" Double-handed hammer with hyper-mode effect

  • "Four-Wheeler" Buggy skin with police light
