How to Chase Down Leon in Days Gone He Can’t Be Far Mission

To chase down Leon, all you have to do is to remain on the street avoiding all obstacles.

This mission is actually a tutorial which introduces you to the driving mechanics in Days Gone.

Press and hold R2 to accelerate, and stay behind Boozer and Leon. As you keep following Leon, he’ll soon start throwing Molotovs on the ground.

Avoid the flames as you’ll take damage.

At one point, Leon will take a left turn and you’ll enter a narrow country road. You can use the ramp on the right side to keep up with Leon and Boozer.

After you cross the wooden bridge, stick to the right side of the road to jump on another ramp.

When you return to the highway, another feature will be introduced. Press X to boost Deacon’s bike and catch up with Leon.

Keep pressing X and you’ll eventually reach the spot where Leon drops his bike.

After a small cutscene showing Deacon and Boozer taking cover to avoid Leon’s bullets, the mission ends and you’ll start automatically the next mission in line, named We’ll Make It Quick.
