"Hose 'em, and close 'em. That's what I say."
—Faruk to Kyle Crane.

Faruk Korkmaz is a character featured in Dying Light.


Events of Dying Light

He is a surivivor found within slums of Harran. He is found during a random encounter in which he can be right outside the Tower.

When approached by Kyle Crane, he explains that he is employed by Zerp Cleaning Products and Services and was a mere three sales away from being awarded "Salesman of the Year". Considering the outbreak, he believes his company will be closing out the year early and thus has a limited amount of time to make the deadline. He asks that Crane escort him to three locations in order for him to complete the deliveries.

The first two deliveries go rather uneventfully, with nobody answering the door so Faruk just leaves the product outside. However, during the third delivery the pair are ambushed by a member Rais' Gang. Crane kills the thug while Korkmaz makes the delivery before escaping towards the Tower.

Once safely in the lobby he thanks Kyle and rewards him with a blueprint for the Fire Launcher, as well as naming him an honourary employee of Zerp.
