The Grey Desert is a relatively insignificant zone which borders a handful of the most polluted areas in the game. The single Tech Hunter Waystation, when coming from the east, is the only place for resupply before heading to Black Desert City in the Deadlands.


There are no Major Towns or Ancient Locations in the Grey Desert. This zone does not spawn Nests or Camps.
