The Mistress Sword in Dying Light 2 appears to be an easter egg and not a functional weapon in the traditional sense. It’s essentially a reference to the Legend of Zelda series and doesn’t deal any damage to zombies or human enemies. The weapon description reads, “Be brave and have fun!” which is a reference to Link’s adventures in The Legend of Zelda franchise.

  1. Collect 5 black-colored ducks with red glowing eyes scattered throughout the game world.
  2. Enter the VNC Tower.
  3. Navigate to the DOOM-styled section within the tower.
  4. Place the collected ducks on five different altars in the room.
  5. Connect the various cables in the room to the right electrical terminals.
  6. Once done, the center of the room will light up, revealing the Mistress Sword hovering in the air.
