When it comes to crushing, oppressive darkness, it's hard to outdo the isolated countryside. There's not a streetlight in sight, no passing cars, barely any lights from windows. If you're going to go stumbling around at night, you need a way to see, especially if there's murderous cultists roaming around in the shadows.

All The Battery Locations In Outlast 2

Luckily, like most Outlast 2 gives you at least one tool to survive the dark and the that lurks within it, this time it's your trusty camera. Unfortunately that camera's night vision mode runs on batteries, and runs through them faster than a first generation iPod, so you're going to need a lot of them if you want to survive. Good job we've got a for you.

Before we begin, it should be noted that while there's no achievement tied to collecting all of the batteries, there is one tied to using your directional microphone for at least 20 minutes during the game. Which will drain a ton of power. If you're aiming for this achievement, make sure to stock up.

Note: All batteries locations are for Normal difficulty, on harder difficulty levels, some of these batteries will not be there.
