Dying Light 2: Stay Human

I can’t make any progress at all in Dying Light 2: Stay Human because I’m constantly distracted by the dynamic events in this game world. From funerals to campfire songs to full-on stage performances, there is a lot happening in this world.

Lo and behold, I was distracted yet again by a couple of folks talking about bees. Here’s the video:

And because I’ve been so doggone persistent about transcribing all of these conversations, I’ll do this one too. I should apologize here, though, because the whole time, you can hear a woman in the background singing a song about the Nightrunners. I’ve transcribed that whole thing, if you’re interested in that, but I have to say, it’s a little distracting when you’re trying to listen to this whole bee conversation.

Anyway, here’s the transcription of the bee conversation:

Man in hat: “Get off me!”

Woman also in hat: “Uh, excuse me?”

“Not you, the bee!”

“Just calm down. There are a lot of them, but I am prepared.”

Both NPCs sit down at this point. The man asks, “What’s that?”

“Ointment,” responds the woman (still wearing a hat, in case you were wondering).


“You know, she’ll die now that she’s stung.”

“Heh, works for me. She fucking stung me.”

The woman attempts to apply the ointment, but her aim is way off. Her hand is like six inches from that guy’s face. Also, it gonks me out that she never takes off her gloves to do this. I don’t even want to know what the inside of that ointment container looks like. I bet it’s all sticky with zombie blood and human hair and whatnot… “Bees pollinate most plant species. As long as they stay alive, we can stay alive.”

“Woah-oh, are you telling me that if bees go extinct, people will follow?”

“That’s exactly it. Flowers would not be pollinated and could not bear fruit. you didn’t learn this in school?”

Both characters stand back up now.

“Damn,” says the man. “I never thought of it that way.” He then breaks out into a tiny little funeral speech (for a tiny little critter). “Let us observe a moment of silence in memory of this bee.”

Both characters look in random directions as the game tries to transition into their next animations. Their movements are sporadic and unpredictable.

And there you have it. There’s some semi-educational bee content inside of Dying Light 2. I have to say, considering that you find bee boxes on pretty much every rooftop in this game, you’d think this guy wouldn’t need this explained to him. But alas, he does, and I got to experience every moment of that explanation. I wasn’t exactly on the edge of my seat, but I did enjoy observing it nonetheless.
