I don't imagine pvp situations are all that frequent so you might as well pop a few zombie skulls for fun every now and then smile.gif

Not really. Zombies can overwhelm you quickly, and ammo isn't that plentiful. I have 350+ zombie kills on this life, but I've never had the intent to kill zombies on it. They've always either been an obstacle that needed to be cleared or a threat that needed to be put down. When possible, my group completely avoids them. We raided the NW airfield for 4 hours before we used an unsilenced weapon, and once we did all 6 of us not in the bus used at least 2 clips each. We stayed alive, but we paid a heavy price because of one person making a mistake and aggroing something too far from the silenced weapons.

My first few lives I thought killing the zombies was the best route... Those lives ended badly. Now I will sometimes play for 4+ hours and only ever fire my pistol when killing a cow/boar and not fire anything else the entire time.

And PvP is fairly frequent actually. Firing your weapon attracts things far more dangerous than zed.

we dont use mics at all, we have steam chat overlay. we only talk when we're not playing follow the leader to an objective.

problem with using in game chat in the next patch, will be zombies can hear you talking.which will make it not so easy to talk anyways.

Yeah, it's too bad it's the only way into the hospital. tongue.gif

I only had to put down a few thankfully.

Instead of shooting the glass in the hospitals, use a hatchet/crowbar. Keep on hitting it until it breaks, it takes a few hits but it makes no noise for the zombies.

Voice chat can be very useful when someone pops out of no-where and surprises you, or someone else doesn't see that Z that you do, but it is do-able with just Steam overlay chat. Just not quite as effecient as it could be.

Yeh I get this impression from most people. I suppose you sometimes end up having to shoot zombies even though you didn't plan for it so I'm sure that's fun in itself. I was just thinking that if it goes to long without having to shoot anything it could get boring. Walking around just looking for items and never having your combat skills tested must get boring after a while. I can see how all the other aspects of the game are fun and I'm really looking forward to it. But I know that if I play for an hour without having to shoot anything then I'll probably go looking for it lol.

Make sure you are launching the game executable through those programs. You know how to do that?
