You’ll be surprised to find out that the developer team at Bend Studio did a pretty good job at placing these collectibles in their latest video game.
In fact, Bend Studio used the actual real-life habitats for the Days Gone plants you can find while exploring the game’s world.
As such, we decided to go the extra mile and teach you how to find all Herbology Plants in Days Gone by knowing where they grow, how they look like and obviously how to use them.
Before you start your quest for these Days Gone Collectibles; however, it’s important to know some key aspects.
Herbology Collectibles Overview
Days Gone Herbology Collectibles are plants scattered throughout the game’s world. They count towards the total completion of the video game and they will also help you earn Credits and Trust Points.
In order to see how many Days Gone Plants you have found, open the Storylines menu, select Collectibles, and press R2 or L2 to access the Herbology sub-menu.
Days Gone features a total of 33 Herbology Collectibles you can find if you want to get 100% in the game. By accessing the menu above, you should see that there are 33 entries you must unlock.
Each Herbology Collectible in Days Gone has a specific entry in the menu. This means that you must find at least one plant of each type to unlock all Herbology slots
Herbology (Regional) Plants
When you open the in-game map you’ll see that each area in the game has a number of Herbology (Regional) collectibles.
For example, you have 6 Herbology (Regional) Plants in the Cascade area. This number is displayed in the lower left corner of the screen. But what does Herbology (Regional) means?
This term refers to region-specific plants or plants that can’t be found in other areas, except for those mentioned below.
Finding all Plants in Days Gone is not an easy job, especially if you don’t know what you are looking for. Luckily, we have created a series of in-depth guides to help you search for them.
The first thing you have to do before starting your quest as a herbologist is to unlock the Hawkeyed Survival Skill. This skill allows you to see all nearby plants on your mini-map.
Next, you’ll have to open your Herbology Collectibles menu and see which plants you have found and what entries are locked.
Use the entry number from your in-game menu to identify the plant you are missing using our maps. Furthermore, for each plant, we have created a guide, which explains how the plant looks like, the best locations to find it, and how to use it.

Collecting Herbs, Mushrooms, and Berries
After you unlock the Hawkeyed Survival Skill, keep your eyes on the minimap to spot all nearby herbs, mushrooms, and berries.
Each plant has a specific icon depending on its type. As an example when you are close to a King Bolete which is a mushroom, on your minimap you’ll see the icon of a mushroom. The same rule applies for plants with berries or for herbs.
Unfortunately, there is no way to know what plant you’ll find just by using the minimap, which means that you’ll always have to investigate these icons.
When you are close to a plant, simply push the Square button to collect it, and it will be stored in your inventory.
Using Plants, Mushrooms, and Berries
As you can see in the tables above, Days Gone features 3 types of plants: Berries, Mushrooms, and Herbs. These types determine the rewards you’ll receive for finding and selling them.
The world of Days Gone is a harsh one, and the survivors you’ll encounter are starving or are sick; thus you’ll be able to help them by bringing back various plants they can use for cooking or for healing.
After you collect a plant, you can sell it to a kitchen and depending on its type, you’ll receive Credits and Trust Points.
Keep in mind though that some Days Gone Supplies also require Herbs, Berries, and Mushrooms, which means that you’ll use them for crafting.
Collecting plants is a great way to increase the amount of Trust Deacon has with Camps.
Below you can see the rewards you’ll receive from the kitchens in Days Gone.
- Herb – 4 Credits & 3 Trust Points
- Berry – 5 Credits & 4 Trust Points
- Mushroom – 6 Credits & 5 Trust Points
As a closing note, make sure you collect as many plants as you can in Days Gone, and visit the kitchens regularly to sell them.
