Bah.... was killed by 2 hackers... my whole team was wiped out by 2 guys that just shot us without even making any sounds and killing us all in 1 shot... well that sucks ass.
We shot one of them like 10 times and he just took no damage.
Just bought this game. Anyone have tips for a newb?
Fun game. It really shouldn't be though. A lot of the systems in the game are downright brutal, but this is also what makes the game so much god damn fun.
Although you shouldn't trust anybody, it's really, REALLY handy to have someone to play with. Players are incredibly greedy and impatient 90% of the time (myself included). I've been in a gun fight where I was outgunned numerous times, only to have the bandit run directly over to me to loot the spoils second after. Big mistake. My buddy sitting prone out clear site takes his time and lands a head shot. Now I have a 5-15 minute run back.. but I can quickly get back on my feet by just looting my old body and splitting the spoils with my friend.
Playing alone is super fun and full of a suspense, but teaming up just makes the game that much more enjoyable. It's strangely fun trying to locate one another when you lose track but trying to give landmarks to each other lol.
I just died a couple minutes ago on a character that was a couple days old. We finally made it to the NW airfield and as we were about to hit the North end I got a little bit cocky and ran out of a small building. What did I see? Not a whole lot. Two people sitting right outside instantly gunned me down. My friend (who they didn't know was there) hightailed it off the runway into the bushes and logged out for now.
The only really annoying thing in the game is people camping high yield areas by logging out in one, and then logging into another server to hopefully nab some more loot. It's incredibly cheesy.
Still haven't found a vehicle that can be serviced yet FFS!

Anyway, if you don't already see where I'm going with this, allow me to spell it out: the only meaningful MMORPG "endgame" -- i.e., something novel to do after the progression process is over -- is that of the sandbox.
It's 20 quid on steam right now, just to make sure you do get Arma 2 and Operation Arrowhead which means you can play the Day Z mod?

After being ganked several times now I am rarely make friends in game.
Even so last night I only had an axe on me and a can of food. I walk into electros power plant and fire station. Some german guy said friendly? I'm like sure (Ive got nothing to lose so I might as well play nice) I find some items as he says go ahead and loot as he has his hands full. So he said that we can try looking at the supermarket. Now i am CRAWLING as I know its a silly idea to run around now in these towns when in open areas + the zeds will come eat me.
So as we are going about hes walking near me and not on his belly. BAM he gets shot and dead. I loot him (he doesnt need his items since he is dead) I hide in a bush and start to hear gunshots sounds like a dinner bell enfield. I turn to the firestation where the shots are now coming from and spot the guy. I have a shotgun. He doesnt see me so i continue to crawl all of a sudden I hear LOTS of angry zeds behind. I assume they are coming to the firestation, I turn to see if I need to dodge any and I see a guy RUNNING at me with a shotgun. Obviously he has heard the gunshots to. A slight pause and we BOTH shoot. both died =[
So I restarted and found alice pack food meds two tents an AKM + mp5 silenced and a revolver. I move into berezino or w/e its called in the north east. I go to the apartments and I hear someone drinking. The person comes down the ladder as he was on the roof. I decide i've got TOO much kit to risk losing so open fire. The mp5 seems to be REALLY poor damage wise I fire 4 shots into the mid section and this person doesnt die. He fires 3 shots I almost die before I take him out. My mate found me and got me back on my feet.
So I decided to use the AKM instead and use the mp5 only against zeds. (if anyone knows the best way to use that mp5 if its headshots that are needed for fast kills etc let me know)
all in all a good nights work. Now all I have to do is setup my tents for my mates camp we have and we're set.
I started playing the game 2 days ago and haven't slept since. I've found 2 M107's but each time they disappeared after I aborted, the second time was even 10 minutes after. Besides that little mishap, I LOVE THIS GAME.
