Encampments can spawn randomly over a map. If players attack or travel close to the husks around an encampment, it will result in one or more large waves of husks attacking over a short period of time.
Encampments will often have mist monsters. Once all enemies in a wave are defeated a new group of enemies will spawn, if there is another wave. Once all enemies are defeated, the encampment will drop a reward, with larger encampments having bigger rewards.
Players can see what the reward of an encampment is by looking at the encampment; a box containing encampment details should appear. Encampments come in four sizes: small, medium large, and super. Super encampments are very powerful and are recommended to be attacked with multiple people.
