First of all, I am sure there are many such threads like this throughout the forums. I have done a few searches, but so many really old topics popped up I figured my best bet was making a new one.
I have lived and died maybe 2 dozen times over the passed week, and I like to think I am learning something each time. Which is great, but there are a few things I just can’t seem to figure out.
I can’t seem to find a metal sheet to make a brazier with for a safe fire. I had read that they are needed for vehicle construction, but I can’t seem to figure out how to deconstruct a car, which are everywhere. I have also read you can get them from stoves or fridges, but so far zombies keep me away from them. Is sneaking into a house really the best way?
Food is an issue as well. I am trying to hunt with a knife spear, but there are very few animals around, and the ones that I can find only give small scraps, not enough to get by on. I am trying to fish, but when I activate the pole near a river, it just says there are no fish near by, try another spot. Any fishing tips, or should I try something else?
Going anywhere near town to look for more stuff seems to just draw a lot of zombies. I have had some minor successes in prior runs on the outskirts, which is great. But right now it really feels like I lucked out more then I knew what I was doing. How in the world are you supposed to kill spitter zombies with the knife spear? Is there some other early game weapon I can fabricate that I am missing?
These are the big questions keeping me from living long enough to learn more. Hopefully once I can live more then a few days I can figure out more interesting things…
