When wandering the rooftops and city streets, you might notice a survivor dangling high above from a cage. The first thing you’ll want to do is clear out all the infected around them. Use your survivor sense to make sure you haven’t missed any. Then, equip a throwing knife.

Aim your throwing knife at the rope holding the survivor. You’ll slice through it and the cage will come crashing down.

Now that your fellow survivor has been rescued, make sure to speak to them to get an item as a reward. Completing the encounter will also give you XP for both your combat and parkour skill trees.
