NOTERules of Thumb(s)
1. Play the game first THEN make suggestions. Don’t just assume the game doesn’t have this or that and make a suggestion.
2. Making a suggestions thread on Kong . Con doesn’t check these fourms, he has his own website. If you want to make a suggestion, go there.
3. Don’t spam in either chat rooms, talk normally so you won’t be dissed on and/or muted >.>
4. Before complaining about this or that, check the wiki and get your basic knowledge.
5. This isn’t a real time PvP game! You won’t be able to see other players during missions or them in missions through alliances.: (I’ve left out the ones that can be answered by playing the tutorial)
Q: How can I get another survivor?
A: There’s a blue bar up top, click it to see details.
Q: What’s going to happen when my protection runs out?
A: Nothing really, raiding isn’t a big thing on low lvls. Find some long rifles before even thinking of raiding.
Q: My leader’s picture keeps blinking with an arrow on it, wtf is it?
A: It means your leader has stat points to spend. You get one per lvl up.
Q: Why can’t I build this or that?
A: Most common reason is your lvl, check the lvl requirement in the buildings menu.
Q: Should I buy anything from the shop, and are they worth buying?
A: No and no. The shop is extremely overpriced and hardly anything there is worth buying. Only the last 3 melee are somewhat worth the fuel (The Harvester, Battle Axe, and Ash’s Right Hand)
Q: What should I make my next survivor?
A: Here’s the list and order(IMO):1st. Scavanger
5th. Fighter (PvE and PvP)/Engineer(PvP)
9th. Fighter(If you choose an Engineer for your 5th)/Scav(PvE)/Engineer(PvP)
Q: Why are you making this?
A: ’Cause it might stop countless noobs ask retarded questions in chat.
Q: Is melee better than guns or is it the other way around?
A: Balance them out. Guns get vulnerable when reloading, use melee to cover them. Melee is short ranged, use guns to cover them, etc.
Q: Should I craft anything early on?
A: Nope, wait till you have some good schematics and know your way around the game.
Q: Why isn’t there a in game chat?
A: You have to make one. You can see what you need by looking at the HUD on the bottom part of the screen. You need a radio tower, and a radio reciever. (2 way is for private messaging)
Q: What does the in game chat allow?
A: It allows you to trade with other players and brag about the stuff you have. (Note, the second part is not supported)
Q: What can I trade, and what does it cost?
A: Trading costs fuel (10 starting price) and goes up by 5 per item. You can trade anything from weapons and gear to resources and junk. (You cannont trade fuel)
Q: Should I trade anything?
A: Early on, no. Wait until mid lvls when you start to get a feel at the game. It will help you from getting trolled or scammed while trading.
Q: I need wood now! Should I recycle my treated wood?
A: No, never recycle treated wood. You need 75 of it for the weapons bench upgrade. Stock up on it.
Q: I got my requirement for my new survivor, but where is he/she?!
Con added a new injury system update, now for those of you who seem quite pissed off at it, here’s how you keep your guys safe:
1.Melee isn’t tank any more
Melee used to be a great brick wall for keeping your ranged survivors safe when reloading, dodging like a ninja and hacking them down. But be wary now, they nerfed the dodge rate and also gave ranged survivors chances to dodge.
2. Keeping a Distance
Stay back, stay together, and stay as far away from the zombies as you can. Use guns that balance each other out.
E.g: Using shotguns to cover assault rifles/LMGs when they reload, and vice versa.
Do that, and your guys shouldn’t be banged up as much. But still, never rush.
2. Medical Supplies
Probably one of the most common problems with people not adapting to the injury system is not being able to find the supplies to heal themselves. As the high grade medical supplies require fuel to craft, it’s frowned upon a lot.
Might as well add this while I’m updating this thread Raiding is becoming somewhat popular (or, for bounty hunters a LOT more popular) due to the Bounty office. But if you’ve been looking at the other threads on the Bounty office and on raiding, you’d probably already know the system is flawed in a few ways.
First off is that “Bounty Hunters” are also commonly the “Most Notorious”.
The reason’s quite simple; People with a bounty on their heads can place a bounty on the person that attacks them. It all becomes like a circle of life.
1.Proper Planning Before you raid someone, it’s smart to view their compound first. Look around the compound and plan your attack. Using which routes and using cover are extremely important. Be wary of open fields, they are likely to be mined.
2.Battle Ready Choose your equipment wisely.
: Long rifles+Smoke Grenades. Use glasses/ammo mods.
(Keep them back, but when crossing open fields send them first and inch forward.)
: Improvised Weapon(s)+Grenades(Smoke/Explosive). Use with vests.
(A must for raids, he is your man for when you want to disarm traps. Keep him safe for when you need him.)
: LMGs/Assault Rifles+Explosive Grenades. Use with vests.
(Your tank on raids, giving them vests increases their already high health, making them excellent for being a point man or tanking damage)
: N/A(your choice)+Smoke Grenades. Use with medical vests(recommended)/kits.
(Your life savers when one of your guys gets a near death experience, but they are extremely vulnerable due to low health. Keep them back)
: Not needed. (When raiding storage’s, the search speed is the same for all classes)
Hope the new edit helps.
AlliancesOne of the new updates from Con included alliances. Currently it’s only in the Recruitment stage, the War stage will be coming in the next update or so.
Q: How can I get into a alliance?
A: You need to be invited by the founder/leader/boss of the alliance
Q: What’s the point of it all?
A: It’s all here
The “War” stage pits Alliances against each other for fuel prizes, however only the top 10 ranked players in the Alliance gets the fuel rewards.Here’s the link for the new update information To be honest, there’s not much to say asides from the new Armor gear type. (Scroll down to the vest sub types on the wiki page.)
Basically it reduces damage from multiple sources while neglecting increased health, so far it has been widely used on tanks on raiding.
