For example: My last death was quite accidental. Being that I died from a grenade I activated in my shelter while trying to turn on my flashlight to read.
Running from wolves at midnight with no flashlight
Cougar infected city. Not a single zombie, but there was like ~20 cougars leaping around.
My machete wielding pistol wiping gun slinger finally fell after the fourth tank day 17
Fell through a hole in a cave and ended up in never ending sewers. Where I died to a fish. Found plenty of drugs though.
Tried knifing a hulk with a combat knife(which I am wont to do!) on a window before realizing I was in red everywhere and still wielding a pot.
I was feeling tactical with my mutated assault freak wielding a silenced Scar-L and some plasma-o-bob rifle. Decided to investigate where those fungle thingies came from.
200 rounds and 400 ish plasma later i died trying to melee my way out of an ocean of fungle monsters…
Starve? It’s usually pretty easy to get food though. Now water is a different story
Child zombies trapped me in a building

Yes fungle creatures are very bad for your health.
Whilst picking squirrels from the barbe- Erm, harvesting food in the farm that my previous char called home at night, I saw a yellow ? a few tiles away from me. I turned on the flashlight. It was a bear looking for delicious human meat, which quickly prompted me to quietly tiptoe back to the house.
I also left all of my weapons in the main farm house, and I like to think the bear said “RESISTANCE IS FUTILE! YOUR HOUSE IS DON BEAR’S NOW!” before reaching me in a few turns maximum and tearing me limb from limb.
My last encounter with a bear ended in me dying due to me only having a .22 and being blind as a fucking bat.
Moral of the story: Bears are assholes.
My last character was the first to make it to day 3. And being so proud of my achievement I wanted to celebrate in the morning, next I awoke to a noise at the door. It happened to.my friend the bear who also came to congratulate me. What. Thought was a hand shake was a swipe the end my life.
I had to make an account to post here…i’ve lurked for some time but yeah
Mosquito. wandering out of the 3rd town that I found I came across a swamp. having never encountered one and everyone saying they were horrible death traps I naturally sauntered in and was quickly drained of blood by a dozen Giant Mosquito’s
“oh, giant bug, how bad could the…OH GOD”
Found plenty of loot, a M4A1, installed a CBM with a 30% chance sucessfully (because fuck you :)), got a motercycle and went to a military bunker to set up a base.
After I placed my items on the ground I decided to investigate the area around me.
Then I saw some fungal zombies chasing me. They became more and more and I used 39 rounds and a grenade to kill a few of them.
Now with only a bullet left I knew I couldn’t decimate them all and that my base is lost.
But instead of going back and hauling the items back into my vehicle I just killed myself.
Yeah, I’m that lazy.
Had an archer with no skills in melee, found some person’s dog and she trained me in mechanics (Coulda choose ‘toad style’ too apparently) and eventually after getting attacked by her own dog (with no repercussions on any of them) she joined me, only to be killed by shriekers and skeletons. I ran away, found a cabin, and attempted to disarm a crossbow trap since I had no weapon, and was already level 3 in mechanics from books.
I wasn’t able to disarm the trap.
However, I dodged the crossbow, and my character (probably with a raging action boner) picked up the crossbow and ran into the cabin.
I lived there for a while, occasionally exploring, rarely even killing anything, got some food from a crate, found a water purifier, and just chilled out reading books. I found some mutagen which gave me fast healing, bug eyes, and ugliness, which is lucky because I walked into a landmine, and healed back to full hp in a night.
Sadly though, I entered a cave, ran from sewer rats, and with the ALERT off I didn’t see the bear that was just as fast as me and ripped my head off.
Longest character I’ve had so far though, about 4-5 days.
My last death was to a bloody piece of glass of all things, my torso was very low and I climbed through a broken window that I just smashed…
Morale of the story :- always clean your mess up
You guys will keep falling to bears and hulks until you learn pretty simple thingy - ALWAYS keep your rifle with you and loaded. No exceptions. A bear wont stand a chance to a burst of .223, or a couple of long-range head-shots. Assault rifle and a silencer is a MUST in these fun times. Just don’t use it to shoot damn squirrels, that’s what rocks are for.
Why would you carry a 12-20 volume rifle with you, when you can carry a 2 volume heavy pistol? Just one or two close range headshots from a Ruger Redhawk or USP .45 can take down a bear easily, and a Hulk only takes a couple more than that.
