Dying Light 2 How to Get Broomstick: Baba Yaga Challenge

By completing the Baba Yaga parkour challenge you can get Broomstick in Dying Light 2 & fly. We have mentioned all steps to get the item.

Techland has a history of putting easter eggs and pop-culture references in its video games. Like the first Dying Light, Dying Light 2 features many easter eggs. One in particular lets you fly a broomstick and relive Harry Potter fantasy. Even though Aiden becomes an overpowered protagonist in late-game by unlocking the best skills, you can take this element up by riding the Dying Light 2 broomstick.

Key Takeaways
  • Obtaining the Broomstick in Dying Light 2 allows flying and navigating the Central Loop’s verticality.
  • To get the broomstick, complete the Baba Yaga parkour challenge by reaching a crane and interacting with a mushroom.
  • Two ways to reach the crane: complete the Broadcast story quest for an elevator or parkour up the VNC Tower.
  • After triggering the challenge, complete parkour challenges to obtain the broomstick.
  • Use the broomstick to explore the open world in new ways.
  • Share the broomstick with friends in co-op play

Baba Yaga Parkour Challenge

Dying Light 2 Broomstick
A step-by-step guide to acquiring Broomstick Dying Light 2

“When you don’t know how to do something, start. Beware of the paralysis of analysis. Be a person of action.” – A long quote but worth the read. The point here is to look for the Baba Yaga parkour challenge because it is your only best bet of getting a broomstick in Dying Light 2. You don’t look for it and have zero chance of becoming Harry Potter.

Broadcast Story Quest

Completing the Broadcast story mission is the first step to making the entire process of acquiring broomstick easier in Dying Light 2. Suppose you are at a point in the game where you have completed it already, then kudos to you. Reach at the elevator lobby as shown in the image here and use it to reach the roof. On a side note, read our Dying Light 2 inhibitors location guide and acquire the code and location to an inhibitor container while playing the Broadcast quest.

If you haven’t cleared this story quest so far, then either complete the Broadcast story mission to unlock the elevator inside the VNC Tower’s lobby or get the broom the hard way; climb the skyscraper. Whatever you do, the next part of reaching and triggering Baba Yaga continues once you are at the top of the building.

Follow the map’s images mentioned here, just in case you are wondering where exactly the VNC Tower in Central Loop is.

Mushroom At Crane

Assuming you have reached VNC Tower’s roof, the next step to getting Broomstick in Dying Light 2 is to look for a crane on the rooftop’s east side. VNC Tower being the highest, if not the highest, in the game, you will need to look down to spot a crane. Here is an image for reference.

The mushroom that triggers the Baba Yaga challenge in Dying Light 2 is located on the said crane. Of course, paragliding down is the only way to land safely on the crane. So, let Aiden be Tom Cruise one more time, and after that, he can be Harry Potter in Dying Light 2.

After landing at the crane, as shown in the image, you need to look for a blue mushroom. It multiplies quickly each time you interact with it, and you will need to repeat the process a couple of times until you get a popup message regarding a parkour challenge called Baba Yaga.

Getting Broom Item

  • Before starting the challenge, ensure enough inventory space for accessory items.
  • The broomstick acquisition involves a glitch-like pattern to place it in your inventory.
  • Insufficient space may require repeating the process, so ensure ample room.
  • Friends can assist in obtaining the broomstick in Dying Light 2.

Assuming enough inventory space:

  • Launch the Baba Yaga challenge, which occurs at night.
  • If visiting the crane during the day, you’ll receive a prompt to shift to nighttime.
  • Trigger the challenge, and when the time changes, pause the game and quit.
  • Resume the game to find Aiden falling from the sky.
  • Use the paraglider to navigate Aiden safely and open the inventory.
  • Find the Broom item in your inventory after the glitch-like sequence

This is the broomstick you need to fly in Dying Light 2’s vertically expansive world. Without it, Aiden can roam the streets on foot or the secret bicycle we mentioned at the start of this guide.

Sharing Broomstick With Friends

There is a way to share the broomstick with your friends in Dying Light 2. The Broom item comes under the accessory category, which makes it droppable in the game. However, if you’d drop it anywhere in the open world, the Broom will disappear.

So, one of the safest ways to not make a broomstick disappear is to drop the item on a suspended wooden bridge. Doing so will make the item suspended in the air and stuck between the wooden bridge planks. Your friends can then grab this item and use it.

From riding a bicycle to hoverboarding the water around Central Loop, Aiden can pretty much do anything in Dying Light 2’s dynamic open-world game. Chop zombies using the best Dying Light 2 weapons or slingshot infected and hostile human eyes using the finest bows; you can do whatever you want in Dying Light 2. However, all of these fun elements become accessible if you go out of the way, scale the surface, and parkour to places no one would expect. This is why broomstick is your go-to easter egg that’s actually functional and fun. 

That is pretty much everything you need to know about how to get Broom in Dying Light 2. What other cool usable easter eggs have you spotted so far in the game? Let us know more of your thoughts in the comment section below.
