Durango: Wild Lands is a fascinating dinosaur survival experience, and we know what you want to do: level up as quickly as possible.

Yep, it's what we all want, and that's why we're put together this guide, which will break down the best ways to level up early in the game.

Early on it's pretty simple and straightforward, but as you progress you'll need to branch out into new skills in order to constantly progress. Don't keep doing a single action, make sure to fill out all of your skills in order to level up as quickly as possible.

EXP from everything


When you jump into Durango, it won't be long until you start collecting some resources. It's hard to resist, you click a plant, the plant gives you things - what's not to love?

But not only that, each time you mine a resource, you'll be gaining some experience. In fact, you can just stand there ignoring the tutorial, collecting items and levelling up at a pretty swift pace. Neat, huh?

That's because you get experience from basically everything in Durango: Wild Lands, and that's why you should try and do, well, everything.

When you first start up the game, you'll be navigated through the tutorial and the basic mechanics of the game, and it won't be too long until you roughly know how to take care of yourself. Then it's just a matter of levelling up and progressing through the game.

Of course, one of the best ways to level up is by undertaking quests on untamed islands, and then turning them in quickly for experience boosts. You will, of course, also earn experience from any combat or collecting you do during those quests.

Quests and new skills will be your bread and butter for early progress, but there are many more ways to earn experience quickly.
