"Searchlights" is a side quest available in Dying Light.

Apparently, Aflie discovered another way to protect the Tower: the Spotlights could help fight off the Infected's night attacks. Problem is, the only bulbs strong enough to make this work are used for the Infamy Bridge firewall, a wall of UV lights from above that keep the volatiles from getting past. The military-installed these UV lights to keep the quarantine in the old town. They were rigged to explosives as a failsafe if the UV lights power went out.

Mission Description

The player must travel from Brecken's Tower in the Slums to the Bridge at the East side of the map at nighttime. Upon arriving at the base of the Bridge Towers, the player must climb up both of the towers to reach the struts across and retrieve the working bulbs from the spotlights located across the struts. There are two struts on two different levels, so the player will need to either climb up to the upper level for the second set of bulbs or descend to the lower level for the second set.


Rather than risk being spotted during the night, The player should try to spend most of the day completing other tasks, then arrive at the base of the Bride towers near dusk and begin climbing. This eliminates any possibility of the player being chased by Volatiles and becoming confused during the mission.

As another alternative to completing this mission at night, the player can collect all the lights during the day. Step away from the lights that electrocute after the bulb is removed.

After Completion

After completing the Searchlights side quest, the available safe spot at the Infamy Bridge will be deactivated. The safe spot can be reactivated by completing the Voltage side quest.


Apparently, Alfie discovered another way to protect the Tower: the spotlights could help us fight off the infected's night attacks. (So that's what the things over the doors are for!) Problem is, the only light bulbs strong enough to make this work are used to illuminate the Infamy Bridge. The tallest one in the city.

  • Get to the Infamy Bridge during the night
  • Collect all the bulbs that are still working
  • Return the UV bulbs to Alfie
Alfie now has everything he needs. The new defense system will soon be installed and should be very effective at keeping the volatiles away.
